History

The Minneapolis Council for Adult Education began in 1929. The organization's objectives were to promote education among the adult population of Minneapolis; to collect and keep up-to-date directory information about all agencies in Minneapolis that were giving service in adult education; to serve as a clearing house for information; to formulate plans and policies for supplementing present service in the city; and to give publicity to educational cultural and recreational opportunities that existed in the city. The organization remained highly active through 1937, but struggled to survive into the early 1940s.
