Early Michigan Education
By Flavius J. Littlejohn

Before entering upon a more direct discussion of the theme thus announced, the author of this article craves the privilege of submitting a few introductory remarks. It has been suggested that the theme thus chosen is not within the accustomed range of pioneer addresses. The author claims no special familiarity with the routine practice in such cases. It occurs to him, however, that whatever tends to define and develop the leading characteristics of our pioneers as a class, must be germane to the cardinal objects of this association.
Again: in a paper of this description, it would seem quite desirable to have the terms employed clearly defined. For instance, in its popular acceptation, the designation of " pioneer " simply means " one who prepares the way." But the term, as we of this association employ it, has a. deeper and broader import—a far more personal significance. Thus, when we speak of the pioneers of Michigan, we mean to designate the creators—the actual artificers of a civilization born of social culture and civil authority.
