{7:101:1293:I:135,690:2244,2118} March 7, 1972 Jerold W. Apps, Chairman Commission of Professors of Adult Education The University of Wisconsin Madison, Wisconsin 53706 Dear Jerry: Thank you for March ,3 regarding the "very positive feedback" from the Executive Committee about my proposed study. I perused the letter you enclosed from John Nioul and came to the conclusion the wrong letter had been enclosed, John's note that you enclosed recommended that I be a part of the monograph study group regarding strategies for establishing graduate programs in adult education. You had wanted to enclose his note which suggested that I might wish to develop a more formal proposal: for the funding 'of my historical study. Could you send a copy of that letter to me? . You may remember that I submitted the following budget (5 year total $2500):. 1972 - $500 to provide travel costs, meals and lodging for me to make an Initial survey of materials at Syracuse Library and to arrange cooperatively with the Library for further collection of material; xerography; blank tapes, and postage for getting tapes of "the pioneers.". 1973 - $500 to provide travel costs, meals, and lodging for a trip to AEA headquarters In Washington, D.C., to review materials with stop-offs at Syracuse on the way. 1974 - $500 to provide for a trip to Syracuse Library, tapes, postage, and student assistance for the project at my home institution 1975 - $500 for telephone calls, tapes, possibly Mr. J. Apps March 7, 1972 . Is this too informal a proposal? Am I asking too little to do what is in essence a rather big job? Do you have any suggestions on format and content for a proposal of this nature? If you and John could give me some advice along these lines I would be most grateful. . Looking forward to hearing from you soon, I am Sincerely yours, Robert A. Carlson Associate Professor of Continuing Education

 

{7:101:1294:I:153,315:2199,978} 2 Mr. J. Apps March 7, 1972 Dr. Jerold W. Apps, Chairman Commission of Professors of Adult Education University of Wisconsin College of Agriculture 208 Agriculture Hall Madison, Wisconsin 53706 Dear Jerry: I am sorry that I was not able to meet the February 25th deadline in answering your letter of February 8th concerning Bob Carlson's proposal as chairman of the Archives Committee. I have now read it, think that it has merit, and am in favor of we do what is necessary to initiate having the proposal funded. I plan to be at the executive committee meeting in Chicago on April 6. I would appreciate it if you would put on the agenda a consideration of the session at the next national AEA conference which is to be cosponsored, as I understand it, by the Research Commission of ABA and the Commission of Adult Education Professors. This meeting is to be similar to that which was held at the conference in Los Angeles at which Malcolm Knowles, Cy Houle, and Paul Sheats spoke on "The Utilization of Research in Adult Education". Since last year's session was chaired by the Chairman of the Commission of Adult Education Professors (Bill Griffith), I will need to chair the session this year as Chairman of the Research Commission. I met in Los Angeles briefly with the executive committee of the Research Commission to lay tentative plans for this session to be submitted in proposal form to the executive committee of the Commission of Adult Education Professors, hopefully on April 6. I have called a meeting of the executive committee of the Research Commission on April 7 to receive reactions and suggestions from the meeting on April 6 and to take any next steps necessary to make plans for the session next fall. Sincerely, A. Farmer, Jr. Prof. of Education

{7:101:1300:I:267,699:2136,1548}Dr. Jerold W. Apps, Chairman, Commission of Professors of Adult Education, The University of Wisconsin, Department of Agriculture and Extension Education, 205 Agriculture Hall, Madison, Wisconsin 53706. Dear Jerry: I have enclosed a partial list of some of Scheffler's work. The idea of a committee to work on philosophical considerations appeals to me. Such a committee has as much merit as the theory-building one. As for a theme of the Commission meetings, my second proposal would be to bring Sullivan, Illich's colleague, as a resource person for the Commission and as a speaker at the Social Philosophy Luncheon. Of course, I am really strapped for funds. The enclosed letter from Wood tells you what I have to work with now. Are there any funds to cover the expenses of a resource person at the commission meetings?. Sincerely yours, John A. Niemi, Associate Professor of Adult Education.

{7:101:1311:I:162,684:2250,1710} March 27, 1972 Mr. Jerold W. Apps 205 Agriculture Hall University of Wisconsin . Madison, Wisconsin 53706 U.S.A. Dear Jerry: Here's the proposal that the Executive Committee seemed to desire. I've increased the amount $100 per year out of fears related to inflation and to feelings I had failed to include enough funding for xerography. With this amount of funding, even if I fail to get any supplementary assistance, I'm sure I can proceed without dipping too deeply into my own pocket. I went into a bit of detail in the proposal regarding rights of the contracting parties because this seemed to be the sort of thing the Executive Committee wished. With every hope that the proposal and the amounts requested will be approved, I am Sincerely yours, Robert A. Carlson Associate Professor Continuing Education
