BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Bess Goodykoontz was born on August 21, 1894, and was raised in the town of Waukon, Iowa.  She attended the University of Iowa, where she earned bachelors and master’s degrees in education. Goodykoontz taught at rural Iowa schools, the experimental school at the University of Iowa, and later was supervisor of elementary schools in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

After teaching at the University of Pittsburgh for five years, in 1929 Goodykoontz was appointed Assistant U.S. Commissioner of Education, a position that she held for sixteen years. The position was a part of the Department of Interior run by Ray Lyman Wilbur, a friend of President Hoover. Both Hoover and Wilbur desired reforms in the area of education.

During her tenure as Assistant Commissioner, Goodykoontz oversaw conferences, field surveys, and acted as a liaison with lay groups and professional organizations concerned with education. This period was an era of reform, also marked by the Great Depression and World War II. Goodykoontz supported retraining programs for the unemployed and changing school classes to be made relevant to changing times. She advocated the use of films and the addition of the industrial arts to the high school curriculum. During the war, she promoted day-care programs so that mothers could work in defense industries. 

Goodykoontz was sent to Germany in 1946 as part of a delegation representing the U.S. Office of Military Government and made recommendations for educational programs in Germany. Goodykoontz was promoted to Director of the Division of Elementary Education within the Bureau of Education, and in 1949 she was named Associate Commissioner. In 1951 she was appointed Director of Comparative Education, and worked throughout the 1950’s in the field of international education. Goodykoontz was actively involved in professional organizations such as the Association for Childhood Education International, and served as vice president of the United States National Committee for Childhood Education and president of the World Organization for Early Childhood Education. She attended a number of United Nations conferences on education as a delegate representing the United States.

Goodykoontz retired in 1960, but continued writing textbooks about education. In 1973 she moved to South Newfane, Vermont, where she died on July 29, 1990.
