History

Selma Borchardt was born in Washington, D.C. on December 1, 1895. She died on January 31, 1968. She received a B.S. in Education from Syracuse University in 1919, and an A.B. in 1922. In 1937, she received an M.A. from Catholic University, and later, she completed all the requirements for a Ph.D., except a publication of a dissertation. She also received a law degree from the Washington College of Law in 1933.

After teaching and supervising schools in Montgomery County, Maryland, 1919-1921, Miss Borchardt became the legislative representative and a vice president of the American Federation of Teachers in 1924. She retained these positions until 1935, and in 1942 she regained them and kept them until she retired in 1962. She also served as chairwoman of the International Relations Committee. From 1929-1955, she was secretary of the AFL Education Committee.

In 1927, Miss Borchardt became a director of the World Federation of Education Associations, a world-wide organization established in 1921 to promote peace and good will among educators of all nations. During the twenty-five years of its existence, it sponsored several international education conferences. When the World Federation of Education Associations became defunct in 1946, Miss Borchardt was on the committee for the establishment of its successor, the Institute of World Studies, a non-profit organization which sponsored educational institutes in England, France, Switzerland, Denmark and Holland.

Besides participating in the AFT and the WFEA, Miss Borchardt was a member of the National Youth Administration, 1934-1944, and of the U.S. National Committee on UNESCO, 1946-1952. She was a delegate to the White House Conferences on Children and Youth in 1930, 1940 and 1950, and she was a delegate to the White House Conference on Education, 1955. She was a member of the U.S. Office of Education Wartime Commission, 1941, and when it was dissolved, she was placed on a smaller committee to supervise the operation of the High School Victory Corps, 1941-1943. Miss Borchardt was secretary of the Education Committee of the Washington Central Labor Union, and the director of the Washington Self-Help Exchange, 1936-1941. In 1934, she was admitted to the D.C. bar, and in 1944, she was admitted to the U.S. Supreme Court bar.

Index of Correspondence

Index to Correspondents The following index includes some (not all) of the correspondents in this collection. Not every letter of the persons listed is neccesarily noted. Selma Borchardt, who because of her position is responsible for a preponderant amount of the correspondence, is omitted from this index. Some of the correspondence consists of copies of letters sent to third parties-persons other than Miss Borchardt. Such letters are indexed, but at all times the names listed refer to the personswho wrote the letters. Many of the letters indexed are mimeographed or are important form letters which were mailed to Miss Borchardt from other offices of the American Federation of Teachers. Since the national office was decentralized and coordinated by the Secretary-Treasurer in Chicago and much of the real business was transacted in Washington, Miss Borchardt received many such letters. Since many of the letters indexed do not contain actual handwritten signatures, some may be copies or some may be drafts written by Miss Borchardt for the signature of the person listed in the index. The index is arranged alphabetically by surnames of correspondents. Because this collection covers such a long time period (1922-1962), the dates (year only) of the letters appear in the index. The first number signifies the box number. The number after the colon indicates the folder in which the letters are located. In cases where there are preponderant amounts of correspondence in several folders which list the name of persons indexed, the box is listed after the title of his position. For example J. W. Crabtree was Membership Secretary ofthe World Federation of Teachers Associations, and many of his letters are in box 32 in folders labeled Crabreee, J. W. and in box 38 infolders labeled Monroe-Crabtree. In such cases these box numbers appear in the index directly after the title of his position. In cases where there are letters from persons indexed in three or more consecutive folders which are listed by date or some other title, the word "to" is inserted between the first and last folder entries in the index. For example, there are letters written by Mr. Crabtree in box 35 in folders 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20.This fact is listed in the index as 35:14 to 35:20.
