Summary or Abstract : This historical biographic study examines the life, career, and contributions of Deborah Partridge Wolfe, an African-American social educator who sought to develop and improve the democratic potential of education and of American society. Wolfe merits attention as a social educator because her work provides insight into a challenging time period in American education and society (1938-current day) during which she consistently focused on issues related to education for democracy and the meaning of citizenship in a pluralistic democracy. The study describes Wolfe's life history and provides a chronological overview of her career while establishing an initial historical and intellectual context for the different stages of Wolfe's career. Additionally, Wolfe's contributions are related to the larger context of educational and curriculum history. The dissertation then examines different facets of Wolfe's contributions as a social educator: her work as an educator and curriculum developer, her tenure as educational chief for the Committee on Education and Labor of the United States House of Representatives, her scholarly and academic writings, and her activity in multiple realms of community life. Wolfe's major contributions to the field of education lie in her advocacy for democratic ideals through her work as a social educator. She consistently drew attention to issues of democracy, diversity and equity through her teaching, curriculum development, scholarly writings, speeches, government service, and social activism. The story of Wolfe's life and career offers insight into the complex social, political, economic, and ethical dilemmas associated with building an inclusive democratic society. Moreover, her career provides a glimpse into the discourse about education, diversity, social justice, and democracy taking place between 1938-2001..
