Osman Kubilay GÜL, Ülkü Yancı


This study is based on the report prepared in 1887 by Sivas American Consul Henry Martyn Jewett about Kayseri Talas American High School and Merzifon American College operating in the region. The Consul evaluated both languages in terms of physical and educational possibilities and presented the report to the foreign ministry of his country. In his report, Jewett also gave a lot of general information about the Ottoman educational institutions in the region. The information about the courses in these reports was examined and compared with the lessons of the Ottoman educational institutions.

This study will allow researchers studying period and region to see the point of view and evaluation of foreign bureaucrat's education system. In addition, the study is also important in terms of evaluating the objectivity of a person who has the opportunity to come to the Ottoman State from the outside and look inside.

Keywords: Sivas, Jewett, American Collage in Anatolia, Education.
