Second, film historians are concerned about the development of the documentary film genre, its sociological origins, its aesthetic, and its wartime role in government propaganda. Yet, both of these sub-fields ignore a significant area of American film history. In the interwar period, the motion picture performed a third social function. Since the late 1910s, while they were steadily becoming the single-most popular form of public entertainment, motion pictures had been simultaneously infiltrating the American school system.1 This use began innocuously as a new type of visual aid not much different, in effect, from the more traditional maps, still photographs, and lantern slides.
