Abstract:

The Lloyd W. Miller collection consists of an audiocassette and transcript of an oral history interview conducted between Miller and James R. Hedberg during the fall of 1990. Miller taught social studies in the Minnetonka School District between 1956 and 1985. In the interview, he discussed the changes that have occurred in public education among administrators, counselors, students, and the community. Miller focused his attention on the 1950s, 1960s, and the 1980s. He considered the late 1950s as an ideal period for teaching. During the 1960s and 1970s, education changed because of the Vietnam War and student protests. Miller considered the 1980s as a time of retreat for teachers.

This oral history interview was conducted as a requirement for the graduate level Educational Foundations course entitled History of Education in American Culture at Mankato State University in Mankato, Minnesota.
