Overview and metadata sections

Paul W. Eberman came to Temple University as Dean of the College of Education in 1963. He stepped down as Dean in 1973, and taught at the college until his death in 1978. Before coming to Temple, he taught at the University of Wisconsin, the last five years as its Associate Dean in the School of Education, where most of the materials in this collection were compiled.

Eberman's papers contain a diverse group of materials pertaining to his classes, chiefly predating his career at Temple. They include notes and typescripts of lectures, exam sheets, instructional materials, bibliographic instruction, and course evaluations. His research on handwriting instruments dates from 1950 to 1953. His analysis of teacher education in Nigeria in 1962-1963 led to the joint venture between Temple and UNESCO to establish a graduate education program for teachers in that country some 14 years later. Personal papers included are Eberman's academic transcripts and Aviators Flight log book, 1943-1946.
