This chapter shares the author's first exposure to andragogy at Boston University, including the background and research foundation giving impetus to writing this book. Kapp from Germany coined the andragogy term based on Comenius' earlier conceptions stemming from educators in ancient times. Savicevic gave andragogy strength in Europe, shared it with Knowles who advanced it in the USA through application to human resource development (HRD) and viewing self-directed learning (SDL) as most important way to implement andragogy. Hadley developed/validated an andragogy/pedagogy measurement instrument. Simpson validated andragogy in the United Kingdom. Kabuga validated andragogy in Africa. Ingalls validated andragogy's nine dimensions for corporate managers' helping workers keep abreast and up to date with their various fields. Mezirow and Suanmali developed/validated with 174 adult educators' andragogy's charter with 10 SDL items.
