The purpose of the study is to record the history of Adult Education programs of the Brigham Young University. Such a history has not been written although two master's theses and one doctor's thesis have treated some phases of the study. George S. Haslam, Chairman of the B.Y.U. Ogden Center for Continuing Education, explored in his master's thesis the History of the Policy Making Groups of the Brigham Young University particularly as they have reference to adult education. A thesis on the establishment of the Audio Visual Department of B.Y.U. was completed in 1959 by Paul S. Smith and Dr. D. Garron Brian did his study on Adult Education in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The work will be valuable to present and future administrators of the Division of Continuing Education and will serve as reference material for adult educators in other institutions.
