The problem of this study is to determine the answer to the question, namely: What are the types of organization of Public Education which Houston has used, 1905-1940? To solve this problem the writer has attempted answers to the following more specific questions which are: 1. What are certain geographical, industrial, social, and religious facts concerning the City of Houston, Texas which may aid the reader to better understand the setting? 2. What historical developments have influenced the beginning of public Education in Houston? 3. what have been the outstanding characteristics of organization of the Public Schools in Houston since 1905?

These data used in succeeding pages were secured from the Houston Chamber of Commerce, the Texas City Schools, student and teacher handbooks, and census bulletins. These sources are indicated in the footnotes and the bibliography.
