McKeever, William A., educator, author and lecturer, was born on a farm 4 miles east of Hoyt, Jackson county, Kan., and received his early education in the common schools. He then entered Campbell College at Holton, Kan., where he graduated with the degree of B. A. in 1893. For the next two years he was principal of the Holton high school, and in 1898 he received the degree of A. M. from the University of Kansas. He was then superintendent of the public schools of Smith Center for two years, and in 1900 was made assistant professor of English and philosophy in the Kansas State Agricultural College at Manhattan. The next year he became the head of the department of philosophy, which position he still holds (1911). In 1904 he was awarded the degree of Ph. M. by the University of Chicago, and the same year he took graduate work in the Harvard summer school. Prof. McKeever has given a number of lectures, especially on topics relating to psychology and children. A few years ago he conceived the idea of distributing pamphlets on child culture in the same way that circulars relating to agricultural topics are distributed. The result has been the pamphlets known as the "Home Training Bulletins," which have attracted considerable attention. They are intended to aid in teaching boys and girls how to work and save; to assist them in the choice of a vocation, and to discourage bad habits in the young. Prof. McKeever has written a number of pamphlets, contributed to magazines, and is the author of two elementary books. Prof. McKeever married Miss Edith Shattuck.
