Historical Background

The National Education Association, of the United States, was chartered by Congress in 1857. In 1870, the National Superintendents Association was combined with it, making it the most representative educational body at that time. Headquarters for the association was established in Washington D.C. in 1917. The meeting held in Dallas, was the first meeting held west and south of Chicago since 1917. This made it more accessible to the western members of the association to attend.
