The development of Harold E. Palmer's pioneering conception of a 'science of language teaching' is described with reference to primary sources and previously neglected writings. The issue of whether Palmer was a precursor of 'linguistics applied' is addressed, with the conclusion being reached that his writings and activities reveal important differences from both previous and subsequent applied linguistic conceptions. On this 'historiographical' basis the article highlights the value of an approach to the history of applied linguistics which avoids over-literal attachment to the 'applied linguistics' label.
