The Fund for Adult Education was a subsidiary foundation established and supported by the Ford Foundation. Founded in 1951, its purposes were to aid and encourage liberal adult education in political, economic, and international affairs and in the humanities, with an emphasis on study-discussion. It became instrumental in the establishment of an educational broadcasting system (ETV) in the United States. The Fund officially ended its activities in 1961. Records include correspondence, published material, reports, and work files. Best represented in the collection are the Fund's Test Cities, "Great Men, Great Issues," "Meet the Humanities," "Ways of Mankind" and Experimental discussion Projects.
