Biographical Note

Burke Aaron Hinsdale (1837 – 1900): 

From humble beginnings, Burke Aaron Hinsdale rose to become one of America’s most notable pioneers in education. The son of Connecticut emigrants, he was born on a farm near Wadsworth, Ohio on the 31st of March, 1837. After working on his father’s farm and attending a local district school, he entered the Western Reserve Eclectic Institute (to become Hiram College in 1867) at age 16. His time as a student spanned 1853 to 1859, for he interrupted his education to spend many of his winters teaching in area schools. While in Hiram, Hinsdale met James A. Garfield, later President of the United States. Garfield was a student and then a member of the faculty at the Institute and Hinsdale wrote prolifically about him. 

During the Civil War, Hinsdale remained at the Eclectic Institute where he worked as a tutor with a small group of instructors and students. From 1864 to 1869, he took a brief hiatus and was employed as pastor of Disciples of Christ churches in Solon and Cleveland. In addition, he had a one year appointment small college in Alliance, Ohio and was the assistant editor of the Christian Standard, a church weekly published by the Disciples of Christ. On May 24, 1862 Hinsdale married one of his former classmates, Mary Eliza Turner of Cleveland. They had three daughters, Ellen, Mary Louise and Mildred. 

In 1869, Hinsdale received an appointment at Hiram College (the Eclectic Institute had achieved collegiate status in 1867) as professor of philosophy, English literature and political science. A year later, he became president of the institution. From 1870 to the end of his presidency in 1882, Hinsdale served as a lecturer, administrator and preacher. He was also the author of numerous articles and books in the field of education. 

Having earned wide recognition for his work, Hinsdale became superintendent of the Cleveland public Schools in 1882, and served one four year term in this capacity. In 1888, after taking some time out to write, he was appointed Professor of Science and Art of Teaching at the University of Michigan. During his professorship, he continued to write about methods of education. 

Hinsdale died in Atlanta, Georgia on November 29, 1900 at the age of 64. Although he never graduated from a college or university, he received honorary degrees and academic recognition from Williams College, Bethany College, the Ohio State University and Ohio University. Burke Aaron Hinsdale’s life as an educator and his work as a writer had a significant impact in the field of education and earned him national recognition as one of the country’s most innovative pedagogical philosophers.
