Few people today are aware of the significant difference between the original "Eclectic Readers" written by Rev. William H. McGuffey in 1836-1837 and the watered down revisions of 1857 and 1879. Although they bear the McGuffey name, the later revisions secularized the earlier "Eclectic Readers" by removing passages concerning faith in Jesus Christ, piety, theology, virtue, morality, and Christian spiritual growth. This biographical sketch shows how this “schoolmaster to a nation” instructed 19th Century America in piety, morality and education. 214 pp.
