Title: 
School Mathematics Study Group Records 

Dates: 
19581977 

Abstract 
Records document the history of the
School Mathematics Study Group (SMSG). The records, which document the writing,
implementation, and evaluation of the SMSG curriculum, consist largely of the files
of the director, Edward G. Begle; together with a collection of SMSG textbooks and
other publications. 

Extent: 
130 ft. 

Language 
Materials are written in English. 

Repository: 
Dolph Briscoe Center for American History, The
University of Texas at Austin 
Directed by Edward G. Begle (19141978), the School Mathematics Study Group created
and implemented a primary and secondary school curriculum between 1958 and 1977
which was widely known as "new math."

Records document the history of the School mathematics Study Group (SMSG). The
records, which document the writing, implementation, and evaluation of the SMSG
curriculum, consist largely of the files of the director, Edward G. Begle; together
with a collection of SMSG textbooks and other publications. Records of the National
Longitudinal Study of Mathematical Abilities (NLSMA) are also present. Material
includes correspondence, meeting agendas and minutes, grant proposals, financial
records, newsletters, drafts of publications, tests, and training films.

Arrangement 

The SMSG material was originally stored in the following locations. The materials
have been transferred to standard archival boxes, but the original order has been
maintained.:
 On the shelves:
 SMSG Textbooks and other SMSG Publications
 Hollinger boxes (140)*
 1 box of 4×6 address cards*
 Filmed course for elementary school teachers (15 reels)
 In 7 filing cabinets*
 In 7 single file drawers on top of the filing cabinets*


* Largely files of E.G. Begle, Director of SMSG 

This order is followed in the checklist (below).
