A Forgotten Voice 

A Biography of Leta Stetter Hollingworth

[QUALITY PAPERBACK]

Author(s): Ann G. Klein, Ed.D.

 

Step into a world of child abuse and prejudice, and discover how it led to the field of gifted education. Leta Hollingworth (1886-1939), born in rural Nebraska, was a very bright child who suffered from her step-mother’s insensitivity and wrath and was forbidden to see the one person she loved most in the world, her grandmother. Somehow, though, Hollingworth rose above the odds to become one of the first women to attend a university. She married a psychologist and later became an influential psychologist herself, as well as a feminist, educator, author, and advocate for both special education and gifted children. Since she was one of the earliest psychologists to research and write about extremely bright children, and the first woman to do so, she is often called “the mother of gifted education.” Her story is fascinating, not only as a biography of an amazing person, but for the historical perspective on gifted education, psychology, and the rising feminism of the day.
