Organizational History:

The Adult Education Association of Indiana was developed in 1940 in order to promote and encourage adult education activities for citizens of Indiana communities.  Members of the association included volunteers, professional educators, and anyone interested in the field of adult education.  The association, original called the Indiana State Association for Adult Education, adopted the name Adult Education Association in 1960. 

Scope and Content Note:

This collection contains materials related to the Adult Education Association during the 1960s.  Items have been divided into six series.
