By Noah Webster.
This movement was introduced into the United States in 1890 by the American Society for the Extension of University Teaching, founded in Philadelphia by Provost William Pepper, of the University of Pennsylvania. During 1891-92 over sixty lecture centres were established in various towns. A seminary for training University Extension lecturers was opened at Philadelphia in October, 1892. More than 100 colleges now participate in the movement. The movement has spread widely and has flourishing lecture centres in New England and the West.
