To the Teachers and Friends of Education in Massachusetts.
At the Annual Meeting of the MASSACHUSETTS TEACHERS? ASSOCIATION, held in Lowell, on the 26th and 27th of November last, it was voted to enlarge the “Massachusetts Teacher,” - the organ of the Association, to increase the efficiency of its Editorial Department, and to improve its typographical appearance. The Directors of the Association were instructed to carry out its wishes.
The work assigned was commenced at once, and the Directors congratulate themselves and the teachers of Massachusetts upon their success in effecting such arrangements as will, they feel confident, prove satisfactory to all concerned.
Prof. Alpheus Crosby, late of Dartmouth College, now Agent of the Board of Education, has consented to become the Resident Editor of the “ Teacher.” The Directors deem themselves peculiarly fortunate in being able to obtain the services of this gentleman, — one who is widely known as an accomplished scholar and an able writer, and whose extensive knowledge upon all educational subjects, sound judgment, and literary taste eminently qualify him for the position, which he, refusing all compensation, has kindly consented to occupy.
The Associate Board of Editors has been selected from the most eminent practical teachers in the State ; and will, for the coming year, consist of Messrs. Ariel Parish, of Springfield; Win. H. Seavey, of Boston ; Daniel Mansfield, of Cambridge; Josiah A. Stearns, of Boston ; Rev. Chas. Hammond, of Groton; Prof. Wm. Russell, of Lancaster; Henry Williams, Jr., of Boston ; Wm. C. Goldthwait, of Longmeadow; C. C.
