Biographical/Historical Note

Howard Jay Friedman was employed by the Florida Department of Education beginning in the 1940s. He served as Editor of the Florida School Bulletin, Director of Public Information and Publications in the 1960s, and as Administrator of Public Information Services in the 1970s.


Scope and Content

News clippings, press releases, speeches, correspondence, reports, publications, photographs. Subject files created by Friedman during his service with the Florida Department of Education, primarily news clippings pertaining to public education in Florida. Major subjects covered include desegregation/integration in Florida education and the 1968 statewide teacher strike. Other topics include education legislation, textbooks, school construction, federal aid, adult education, the Civil Rights Act, teacher certification, the Florida Education Association, school auto tags, teacher wages, and the history of education in the State. In addition to Friedman's own correspondence, much of the correspondence and speeches are by Florida State Superintendents of Public Instruction, Thomas D. Bailey and Floyd T. Christian. The majority of the photographs are not dated and unidentified but they were probably created for use in news media.
