Biographical / Historical

Annette Marie Garrett (1898 - 1957) was born in Lawrence, Kansas, to Dara and Edwin L Garrett. After graduating from Kansas State University in 1920 she went on to receive her A.M. from Chicago School of Social Service Administration in 1924 and her M.S.S. from Smith College School of Social Work in 1928.

After several years in casework practice, she was appointed chief of social service at the Judge Baker Guidance Center in Boston. In 1935 she became associate director of Smith College School for Social Work, remaining there until her death. As an instructor and director of field operations, Garrett believed that students should have a wide range of firsthand field experience. Out of just such an experience, working with a troubled child in foster placement, she wrote Casework Treatment of a Child (1942). Her contributions to social work education include Learning through Supervision (1954). Garrett's influential book, Interviewing, Its Principles and Methods (1942), was translated into 12 languages, and her Counseling Methods for Personnel Workers (1945) helped to extend the use of casework principles to the new field of industrial counseling.
