Russell H. Bradshaw, EdD
 [A.B. (Wesleyan University), EdM, EdD (Harvard University), Cand. Polit. (University of Oslo)] is Associate Professor at Lehman College, City University of New York. He has taught psychological and historical foundations of education and directed the MA program in Teaching Social Studies: 7-12. Dr. Bradshaw’s master’s and doctoral dissertations described alternative living and child care arrangements in Sweden (‘Samhem’ and ‘Kollektivhus’). During his undergraduate studies he received a stipendium to live in Samoa and wrote his Honors Thesis on religion’s effect on cultural stability and change in Western Samoan villages. Dr. Bradshaw’s continuing interest in alternative living and childcare solutions led him to an intensive study of a Hindu-based religious cult in New York City. Dr. Bradshaw has received fellowships and grants from Wesleyan, Harvard, and Uppsala (Sweden) Universities and from the City University of New York.
