dc.description.abstractPurpose: The purpose of this study was to present a biography of the life and professional career of Daniel Carter Beard, 1850-1941. Beard's contributions were investigated in terms of their possible influences on youth service agencies, recreation, outdoor education and physical education. His personal philosophy was analyzed through an objective analysis of his writings, the reports of contemporaries and the time in which he lived and worked. Procedures: Historical, biographical, analytical and interpretative methods were utilized to analyze Beard's life and career. In employing these methods, documentary and human sources were used which were of primary and secondary quality throughout the research. Letters were sent to individuals and organizations requesting information on books, manuals or articles dealing with Beard. The letters also asked for the names of any individuals who might have worked or associated with Beard in the early 1900's. Data used in this study were collected on two extended trips during May and August, 1974. During the trip, numerous manuscript collections, museums and libraries were visited and private individuals were interviewed. A camera was taken to photograph letters, documents, illustrations, uniforms, awards, and people and places visited..en
