William Wolfgang Brickman co-founded the Comparative Education Society (CES, later renamed as the Comparative and International Education Society) in the United States in 1956, and served as president twice (1956-1959, 1967-1968). His impact on the field of comparative education goes far beyond his involvement in the establishment of the Society. His career at New York University (NYU; 1940-1942, 1946-1962) and the University of Pennsylvania (1962-1981) reflect his commitment to historical scholarship, adherence to academic freedom, and belief in the value of comparative education.
