Ingliss career manifests important characteristics of the progressive era in American history. As an attempt to generate organizing principles upon which to construct a new, responsive social institution, his book, Principles of Secondary Education, stands as a quintessential manifestation of progressive values.

This fine-grained profile of Ingliss work reveals nuances in the historic record that are otherwise obscured by high-level historical interpretations. An assessment of the utility of these interpretations for explaining Ingliss career leads to a discussion of the implications of the record of Ingliss work for understanding the progressive period and its prevailing interpretations, as well as to a consideration of the role of biography in historical research.
