Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Mary McEvoy was a leader in early education and development; she died unexpectedly on October 25, 2002. Like other leaders, Mary produced a lasting and substantial effect in early education and development through her own efforts and through the effect she had on others. This paper considers how leaders influence our field by creating commitment, continuity, and dedication to the science and practice of early education and development, and how these effects endure long after these individuals die.
