E. Jennifer Monaghan

I send along the very sad news of Jennifer Monaghan's sudden death on Sunday September 14.  She was a brilliant and generous scholar of reading in early America.  Her book, Learning to Read and Write in Colonial America (UMass, 2005), is the definitive work on the subject.  Her essential earlier study,  A Common Heritage: Noah Webster's Blue-Back Speller (Archon Books, 1983) recovered the use of spelling books for reading instruction.
