Additional Writings by and about Maurice Dartigue
This sub pocket contains the following:
1.”Rural Life and Education in Haiti,” an eight-page-plus article Dartigue wrote for The Inter-American Quarterly (based in Washington, D.C.), published in April 1941. This is one of only three pieces he produced in English during his 20-year career in Haiti.
2.”Maurice Dartigue,” ”Le Maurice Dartigue que j’ai connu” (The Maurice Dartigue I Knew), “Aspect peu connu du gouvernement d’Elie Lescot/IV— Lescot, La Shada et les Paysans” (Little Known Aspect of the Government of Elie Lescot/IV—Lescot, SHADA and the Peasants), and ”Le vrai visage du Gouvernement d’Elie Lescot” (The Real Face of the Government of Elie Lescot)—four articles that are appreciations of Dartigue and that appeared in the Haitian newspapers Le Septentrion (the first two articles) and Le Nouvelliste (the remaining two articles) between 1983 and 1986, following his death in July 1983.
3.Le programme de construction de classes primaires dans le cadre du premier Plan Quadriennal du Sénégal (1961-1964) (The Program of Construction of Primary Classrooms within the framework of the first Quadrennial Plan for Senegal (1961-1964) was a report that Dartigue wrote during his two-year (1963-1965) mission to Senegal and that was published by UNESCO in 1965.
4.”Un Réformateur parmi les réactionnaires” (A Reformer among Reactionaries) is a short excerpt or distillation from a master’s thesis (L’Education en Haïti: la pensée et l’oeuvre de Maurice Dartigue 1941-1945) [Education in Haiti : The Thought and Work of Maurice Dartigue 1941-1945]) presented by Ian-Pierre Scott to the University of Montreal in 1996. The two-page piece appeared that same year in Dire, a publication funded by the university. (Informationally, Mr. Scott is listed as a collaborator on Charles Pierre-Jacques’ 2002 book about Dartigue, D’Haïti à l’Afrique, Itinéraire de Maurice Dartigue, Un Educateur Visionnaire [From Haiti to Africa, Itinerary of Maurice Dartigue, A Visionary Educator].)
5.La Réforme de Maurice Dartigue et Les Courants de Pensée en Education (The Reforms of Maurice Dartigue and Trends in Educational Thought) is the transcript of a talk given by Creutzer Mathurin, a sociologist and principal advisor (at one time) to the Haitian Ministry of Education, in May 2003 at a half-day conference at the University of Quebec in Montreal that honored Dartigue, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday that year. In it, Mathurin gave a very cogent summary of Dartigue’s work and included two pages devoted to the influence on Dartigue of three of his Teachers College professors—Mabel Carney, Isaac Leon Kandel, and William Chandler Bagley. The conference was organized by Haitian historian and author Marcel B. Auguste, who was among the speakers, as were author and professor (at the University of Sherbrooke) Charles Pierre-Jacques and Frantz Voltaire, president of the Montreal-based CIDIHCA (Centre International de Documentation et d’Information Haïtienne, Caribéenne et Afro-Canadienne [International Center of Haitian, Caribbean and Afro-Canadian Documentation and Information], which is both a library and a publishing house. Also enclosed is a copy of the conference agenda as well as a message from Esther Dartigue, who was unable to attend, thanking the organizers and participants for “this homage to a Haitian, Maurice Dartigue, who in his soul and his conscience served well the interests of his country.”
