Sudhindra Bose, "An Indian Educational Commission to America" (1919)

In this article from the September 1919 issue of The Hindustan Review, Sudhindra Bose describes the U.S. education system and its potential lessons for the education system in India, which he describes as "frozen" and "unsatisfactory." Bose proposes an Indian commission to be sent to the U.S., citing similar precedents from Japan and England. "Indian leaders who are interested in the educational advancement of India should send a commission to America at an early date," he writes. Bose, who taught at the University of Iowa, mentions that University President Walter A. Jessup would be pleased to host the proposed commission. At the end of the article, Bose mentions R.K. Kehmka, the President of the Hindustan Association of America (HAA), would be willing to head the commission. The address for HAA is given as 116 West 39th Street, New York City.
