The main purpose of this study was to trace the origin and gradual growth of the visual education program through the use of motion pictures in the public elementary schools of Omaha. This involved the following problems: 1. To show the early, casual beginnings and period of unorganized use of films in the elementary schools. 2. To show the period of formative growth of an organized program. 3. To describe the first year of administration of that program.
