The National Council of Teachers of English created a “Committee on American Speech” in 1915 for the purpose of getting Americans interested in preserving “proper” speech. They wrote letters to get endorsement for the Speech Movement, created leaflets of information and wrote articles for newspapers and magazines to promote their cause.
