Historical Note

Charles Northend (1814-1895) was a prominent educator, author, and consultant who lived and worked in New England.  Born in Newbury, Massachusetts, Northend attended Dummer Academy before earning his A. M. degree at Amherst College.  Upon leaving Amherst, he taught for nearly twenty years in Massachusetts schools and eventually became assistant to the state superintendent of schools of Connecticut.  During this time, Northend oversaw the work of the state's teachers' institutes, and served as the editor of the Connecticut Common School Journal.  In addition to The Teacher and the Parent: A Treatise Upon Common-School Education (1856), Northend's published works also include: The Teacher's Assistant, or Hints and Methods in School Discipline and Instruction (1865); The Annals of the American Institute of Instruction, Being a Record of Its Doings for 54 Years, from 1830 till 1883 (1884); and a number of readers, dialogue books, and exercise books for Primary students.
