The Works of Bruce Ryburn Payne, first President of Peabody College (great-grandfather)

Quite by accident, I stumbled on a list of my great-grandfather’s published works.  Some are still in print!  This is the man who founded Peabody College, a teachers’ college in the South, now the Education School of Vanderbilt University.  I am struck by the gentle teaching and learning focus in his choice of topics.

I am indebted to purchase phentermine 37.5 Ryburn Payne; WorldCat” href=”http://www.worldcat.org/search?q=au%3APayne%2C+Bruce+Ryburn%2C&qt=hot_author” target=”_blank”>WorldCat for this list.

Some education topics/subjects of study never go away.  Here he is, looking at comparing how many students are taught which subjects in the US versus France, Germany, and England in 1905.  In 1911, high school progress was already a concern worthy of study.  Come 1932, I wonder who he thought the “Silent Sufferers” were?

  1. Dear Elspeth,
    I was interested to read that you are descended from Bruce R Payne. I myself am related to William Harold Payne who was the President (1887-1901) of Peabody Normal School which is the precessor of Peabody College; he was also Chancellor of the Univ of Nashville. WHP was my great-grandmother’s brother; my grandfather Sibley Converse (who came from near Rochester NY) attended Peabody Normal School, perhaps because his uncle was head! I wonder if the two Paynes are related? William H apparently had only one son, William R, and I read that Bruce R came from Virginia, but could he be a grandson or nephew of William H? Have you traced the Paynes back further than Bruce R?
    Thanks for any info you may have on my/our ancestors.
    Carolyn

    • We have indeed – my grandmother was involved in several of the hereditary organizations such as Colonial Dames. To the best of my knowledge there is no relation between the two Presidents Payne.
