A FOREWORD

Fortunate are we to have from the pen of Mrs. Dickson a book on the vocational guidance of girls.  Mrs. Dickson has the all-round life experiences which give her the kind of training needed for a broad and sympathetic approach to the delicate, intricate, and complex problems of woman’s life in the swiftly changing social and industrial world.

Mrs. Dickson was a teacher for seven years in the grades in the city of New York.  She then became the partner of a superintendent of schools in the business of making a home.  In these early homemaking years there came from the pen of Mrs. Dickson a series of historical books for the grades which have placed her among the leading educational writers of the country.  During the long sickness of her husband she filled for a while two administrative positions—­homemaker and superintendent of schools.
