Frances Shimer College offers a curriculum of general education to 
young wompn in grades 1 1 through 14, that is, the last two years of high 
school and the first two years of college. Combining these four years into 
one educational unit provides opportunity to offer a superior curriculum 
of general education. Such a program does a more effective job of pre- 
paring the student for enriched life activities, for effective citizenship and 
for specialization in a university, than does the traditional curriculum 
which necessitates a break at the end of the twelfth grade. 

While the college does not minimize the vocational usefulness of any 
knowledge or skill, it believes that specific vocational training should 
be postponed until the student has been introduced to the various areas 
of human knowledge and to the techniques that are used in the respec- 
tive areas. This background of general information and skills will be 
useful to students who wish to enter either vocational or professional 
schools. Also, this general information will enrich the lives of those 
students who will consider their formal education completed when they 
leave Frances Shimer College. 

The purpose of general education is to develop the dbihty to identify 
basic vahies which guide the individual in mailing decisions and to culti- 
vate concrete experiences which augment the meaning of those values. 

The specific aims of education at Frances Shimer College can be 
stated in terms of developing the qualities and skills inherent in the 
general purpose: 

L Enough knowledge about the nature of men and women 
and their social relationships to discover the principles 
which must order all human enterprises. 

2. Sufficient information about the natural worid to know 
how it can sustain and serve human life- 

3. Understanding and appreciation of the achievements of 
men as expressed in literature, art, music, philosophy and 
religion. 

4. Competence in the expression of thoughts and feelings 
through use of the English language and through an 
artistic medium, 

5. Skill in analytical thinking and critical evaluation of con- 
clusions.

6. Ability to think creatively, to put together ideas and 
thoughts in new ways. 

7. Ample health so as to be sensitive and responsive to one's 
environment. 

8. Purposeful planning of vocational and home life. 

9. Positive and constructive participation in the democratic 
ordering of group life through responsible support of con- 
structive activities and by leadership in areas of competence. 

10. Understanding of and commitment to the basic principles 
of religious living as found in the Hebrew ^Christian tra- 
dition. 

Personal intej^^rity and active good-will toward all indi- 
viduals. 

Emotional maturity, poise and self-control.

From the foregoing statement of specific aims, it is apparent that 
Frances Shimer College believes that the purpose of general education is 
something more imporunt than a satisfactorily adjusted life or the acqui- 
iition of knowledge. Life can be adjusted on very unworthy levels, and 
facts arc tools to be used, not ends to be served. 

The quality of life depends upon the ability of men and womert to 
discover how the values are created which support life and give it 
excellence. The most important and perplexing problems young women 
face in their world are those of the identification of values and the fos- 
tering of their growth. Conversely^ they must know how to recogniK 
those practices and habits which destroy values or obstruct their growth. 
If our young women cannot do this they and their world will perish 

Values develop in the life of a young woman when she becomes 
keenly aware of the thoughts and feelings of others and uses them to 
enlarge her own understanding; when her knowledge of the world ex- 
pands and she fe^ls a growling consciousness of the ties which relate her 
to other people. The development of values will be blocked by inability 
to communicate with others to get their ideas, thoughts and fcehngs 
through conversation and reading. This growth cannot take place when 
there is ignorance or when personal pride erects barriers among men and 
women. Education at Frances Shimer College is designed to eliminate 
those obstructions to the growth of its students and to provide pc^tive 
conditions for the increase of values in their lives. 

HISTORY 

Ninety years ago, when American education was still designed pri- 
manly for men, Frances Ann Wixxl received a call to establish a school 
in the modest-sized Illinois community of Mount Carroll. With Miss 
Cinderella Gregory she left her home in New York State and on May 1 1 .

FRAHCES SHIMER COLLEGE 



1853, the tvvo young pioneers in the education of women opened the 
Mount Carroll Seminary. 

Frances Wood, later Mrs. Frances Wood Shimcr, administered the 
Scminar>^ herself for forty-three years, Miss Gregory having resigned in 
1870. In 1896, by her own wish, Mrs, Shimer transferred control to a 
self 'perpetuating Board of Trustees of fifteen members representing the 
University of Chicago, the alumnae of the Seminary, and the citizens of 
Mount Carroll. Ten members of the Board of Trustees are members of 
Baptist churches. 

The chartered name of the institution became The Frances Shimer 
Academy of the University of Chicago, Friendly relationship with the 
University implied by this name, as well as the representation of the 
University on the Board of Trustees, remains to the present day. 

That the Academy did receive unusual representation from the Uni- 
versity during this early period may be judged from the names of mem/ 
bers of its first Board of Trustees, which included such leading educa- 
tional figures as William Rainey Harper, Thomas W. Goodspeed, Henr>' 
A. Rust, AlonM K. Parker, Frank J, Miller, and La than A. Crundall. 
In the years that followed, progressive educational policies were inaugu 
rated. These years were, in a sense, the critical, formative years in the 
college's growth, and its successful emergence from them points to the 
quality of its leadership. 

In these years also the college began rebuilding on a much larger scale. 
The original Seminary buildings having burned in 1906, the present 
quadrangle was laid out, providing ample room for building expansion 

The institution was one of the first to undertake the junior college 
plan, and graduated its first junior college class as early as 1909, ]on\i 
before the junior college had won the popular acceptance which it has 
now. In 1931, the tnistees approved the idea of making the four-year 
junior college the chief unit of academic organization. 

Upon the retirement of Mrs. Shimer, William Parker McKee of 

Minneapolis was called to be president. During his thirty- three year 

administration, the present complete plant was built and most of the 

equipment acquired. He was President Emeritus from 1930 until his 

death in 1933. Floyd Cleveland Wilcox, who became president upon 

Dr. McKee's retirement, retired in 1935. During his administration the 

college made many advances in educational policy. In 1936, Raymond B. 

Culver became president and served most ably until he resigned because 

of ill health in February, 1938. In the interim between Dr. Wilcox's and 

Dr* Culverts incumbency, and again during the year between Dr. Cul 

ver*s death and Mr, Bro's appointment, A. Beth Hostetter, formerly 

dean and now vice-president, acted as president. In the fall of 1939, 

Albin C, Bro came to the presidency from his work with the University 

of Chicago Press.

STUDENT LIFE 



RELIGIOUS 

For the student at Frances Shimer College, religion is more than 
Bible courses and chapel services. It is an attitude of life which permeates 
the entire curriculum and which has as its goal the discovery of perman- 
ent, sustaining and satisfying values. The curriculum is so organized 
that it aids the student in making a religious adjustment to the realities 
of life and provides a foundation for a religious commitment. Religious 
literature and thought are taught as a part of our cultural heritage. One 
chapel service a week is devoted to the unification of the student s re- 
ligious experiences and the development of a worshipful attitude. 

The purposes of the Young Women's Christian Association are to 
create and sustain a spirit of friendship on campus, to discover the true 
values of life and relate them to living, to grow in an understanding of 
God through Jesus, to become co-workers with God in building a letter 
world, and to extend the friendship beyond campus to include fellowship 
with peoples of all nations, races, and creeds. 



SOCIAL 

The educational aims subscribed to by the college include recognition 
of the idea that the whole h'fe of the student is a unit Under these dr- 
cumstances the extra-curricular activities become second in importance 
only to the program of the curriculum. Social training is a part of col- 
lege education. Both residential house life and student organizations and 
activities offer valuable training in social co-operation and in creative use 
of leisure. 

The social atmosphere of the college is wholesomely democratic. Every 
student is expected to use and develop for the whole group whatever 
social gifts she may possess. Appropriate dress, a pleasing manner, poise, 
graciousness, ability to appear at ease before an audience, are as much 
a part of the Shimer social ideal as are scholastic attainments* 

With the assistance of class counselors the students give class parties, 
dances, bazaars, teas, lawn fetes» concerts, and plays; they plan mentis, 
arrange decorations, devise costumes and stage properties. A series of 
formal dinners sponsored by student organizations provides opportunity 
for each group to entertain the student body and faculty, and to intro' 
duce visitors and speakers. Three forma! dances and two informal dances 
are given during the year. The college sponsors a program of week-end 

[21] 



22 



FRAHCES SHIMER COLLEGE 



activities providing entertainment and social occa^ons throughout the 
academic year. 

While students reside in halls according to their age and academic 
dass« at table they often sit with members of other classes and with 
facult>^ members. Table groups are disbanded and redistributed, so that 
each Shimer student, in the course of the school year, forms a maximum 
number of pleasant social acquaintances with students and faculty mem* 
bers outside her immediate residential group. 

Each residence hall provides social rooms and parlors in which the 
social life of the house group can be developed and can include the 
proper entertainment of guests. Thus every aspect of mature social life 
is reflected within the college community, and every student is enabled 
to share in the social experinces common to educated people. 

CULTURAL 

The college sponsors a program of concerts, lectures, recitals, and 
conferences throughout the academic year. These occasions bring to the 
college and the community leaders in education, the arts, religion, and 
public life. Formal presentations in Metcalf Hall or the auditorium of 
the gy^mnasium are followed by smaller informal group discussions in the 
student lounge of West Hall or in other college rooms. 

Frances Shimer is close to the larger cultural resources of Chicago. 
College-sponsored trips, under faculty supervision, enable students to 
visit Chicago's museums, see current plays, attend concerts by the Sym' 
phony Orchestra, or be present at events of interest to a specific group. 

Frances Shimer has for many years, however, prided itself upon the 
creative activity within the college denoting the cultural resourcefulness 
of its students. It has consistently encouraged the creative instinct in 
whatever direction the students choose to turn; the theater, music, pain^ 
ing and drawing, and creative writing have been liberally encouraged by 
the college administration, which in turn has been rewarded by the un^ 
usual quality^ of the students^ response. 



RECREATION AND PHYSICAL WELFARE 

Few institutions are equipped to offer so complete a recreational pro^ 
gram as Frances Shimer. In addition to the cultural resources for rec^ 
reation already mentioned, the college maintains physical education 
equipment which is both modem and ideal. 

The gymnasium is new and entirely adequate. It houses a full^sized 
playing floor with a standard basketball court adaptable to a variety of

Campus conditions have been designed to safeguard the health of 
students All students have physical examinations on entering records

physical education is planned for the individual student on the basis of 
these records. 

The resident nurse in charge of the infirmary carries on an educa- 
tional program m the maintenance of good health. She is on duty at all 
times and is available to students day and night When the attentions of 
a physician are necessary, appointments are made by the nurse and the 
student assumes the expense.

COURSE INFORMATION 



UNIT OF INSTRUCTION 

The unit of instruction is a semester hour. This term may be defined 
as a credit granted for successful completion of a study pursued for one 
class hour per week throughout a semester of eighteen weeks. 

In general, two hours of laboratory work arc counted as equivalent 
to one recitation class hour if the instructor requires computations and 
write-ups of laboratory work to be done outside of laboratory hours. 
If such work is required to be done in the laboratory and under the 
supervision of the instructor, the laboratory equivalent of a class meeting 
for which preparation has been made is three hours. 

Class hours are fifty minutes in length. A five-minute interval is 
allowed for passing from one class to another. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

The letters A to E are symbols used to indicate the degree of pro- 
ficiency in any subject and may be interpreted as follows: 
A— Superior C— Average 

B— Above average D— Below average 

E — ^Failure 

As a rule, condition grades are not assigned by the faculty. Where 
special conditions prevail, however, which are not the result of a student's 
inattention to her studies, incomplete work may be made up with the 
consent of the instructor. A student who receives a final examination 
grade of E in any subject may request a second examination, providing 
the average grade in that subject is not less than C. Such an examination, 
however, must be taken not later than four weeks after the beginning of 
the ensuing semester, and when taken may not result in a final semester 
grade higher than C. 

Supplementing the marking system is the grade point system, which 
serves to set definite standards of achievement in terms of amount and 
quality of work. Grade points are assigned in the following manner:

DEVELOPMEHT OF THE PLAH 

The curriculum of Frances Shimcr College has been under study and 
revision for several years. In 1931 the Board of Trustees made the four

year junior college the basic unit of academic instruction. In 1944 a 
thorough study of the college was made by Dr, John Dale Russell and 
his associates from the Department of Education of the University of 
Chicago. Later that year the faculty and administration revised the state^ 
ment of the aims and purposes of the college. After this statement was 
accepted by the Board of Trustees, the faculty was re-organi^^ed and the 
process of revising the curriculum to carry out the stated purposes was 
begun. The plan will be introduced at the elevcjith and thirteenth grade 
levels in September, 1947. Twelfth and fourteenth grade students will 
enroll under the old plan. 

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SHIMER PLAH 
General 

The purpose of education at Frances Shimer College is to develop the 
ability to identify basic values which guide the individual in making de- 
cisions and to cultivate concrete experiences which augment the meaning 
of those values. This means that the curriculum must be concerned with 
general education. General education is not divorced from thorough study 
of specific events, periods, or cultures but it is opposed to over-specializa- 
tion. It is general in the sense of being generic, inter-related and inte- 
grated. All study is concerned with specific facts and events. General 
education is concerned not only with these facts but with the meaning 
of facts. When information becomes meaningful it becomes useful in 
value choices. The Shimer Plan is an attempt to build a general, inte- 
grated curriculum. 

Prescribed 

In order to do this a large percentage of the courses must be prescribed. 
The integration of meaning between areas of study is lost when a student 
is permitted to elect courses according to their immediate fancy or desire. 

Individual 

When the plan becomes effective for all grades in September, 1948, 
each student will be given an opportunity to test out of courses by place- 
ment examinations. Tests in the field of communications will be ready in 
September, 1947. This permits an individual student to advance as 
rapidly as possible. 

Complete 

The Shimer Plan attempts to bring together the '^curricular'' and 
"extra-curricular" into an integrated program. The four content coui^es 
are equivalent to sixteen hours of credit. Each student must participate 
in a graded program of physical education and sports. Riding may be 
substituted for physical education at any level Furthermore each student 



36 



FRANCES SHBAER COLLEGE 



must develop creative skills in art, music, dramatics or the activities of 
the home or business. Many of these activities have been considered 
*^extra''<urricular. The Shimer Plan insists that such experiences are 
essential in the life of a student and attempts to organize them on that 
basis, 

RE^VIREMEHTS FOR GRADUATION 
For graduation a student must pass sixteen comprehensive examina- 
tions or demonstrate achievement through courses transferred or by place- 
ment examinations. By September, 1948, all advanced standing will be 
determined by placement examinations. A student must also present sat- 
isfactory achievement in four units of physical education and four units 
of art, music, drama, home or business hfe. Twelfth grade diplomas are 
awarded when desired but there is no formal graduation or commence- 
ment at that level* 

CREDITS AHD TRAHSFER 

Credit is measured by achievement in all fields. Class attendance alone 
is no criterion of achievement. In the content fields credit is measured 
by comprehensive examinations. In the creative skills a full account of 
the level of achievement is presented to any institution to which a student 
may wish to transfer. Credic in these fields *vill be cstabhshed according? 
to the level of achievement. This is no departure from the procedure 
now followed by schools of music and art. 

In transferring general courses the proportion of time spent on specific 
units is indicated. This provides a means of measuring credits according 
to the curriculum requirements of any other college.

SOCIAL SCIENCE 
Miss Leaman, Chairman of the Dwxston 
The aim of the social sciences is to give the student perspective and to 
prevent her from being submerged by the details of the knowledge of 
the world in which she lives. The background for an intelligent under 
standing of things as they are is to be found in the history of the past 
The courses are concerned primarily with the impact of for^s gcner 
ally known as the industrial revolution on economic, social and political 
institutions. Eventually it is hoped that the student will have an apprc^ 
dation of the major social problems of the present day and not only wiH 
be eager to receive the rich heritage of the race but will also be enabled 
to contribute to its enrichment.

THE FINE ARTS 
Miss Hostetter. Chairman of the Division 

The Division of the Fine Arts includes the work of the Departments 
of Graphic and Plastic Arts and Music. Courses aimed at developing an 
understanding of the arts as well as at increasing performing skills arc 
included in the curriculum. 

Music in the junior college has a special function in that it continues 
and develops the interest aroused in secondary schools through participa- 
tion in recital, chorus, and glee club. It also aims to carry to a higher 
degree of proficiency the performing skills acquired elsewhere. For the 
junior college student, as well as for the older liberal arts college stu- 
dent, music acts as an emotional outlet, a refuge from the commonplace, 
an emotional and intellectual disciplme, a vehicle of personality de- 
velopment, and finally as an avocation or vocation. 

Graphic and Plastic Arts in the junior college serve to prepare the 
student to make significant creative contribution to contemporary art 
and life, whether that contribution be m a university, an art school, a 
home, or a professional position.

Glengarry Farm Stables 
Instruction in horseback riding is given at the Glengarry Farm 
Stables with facilities that are quite ideal. There are 240 acres of rolhng 
countryside, numerous riding trails and a large riding ring, the scene of 
the annual horse show. 

Mr. and Mrs. S. I. Campbell, owners of Argyll Stables, have gener- 
ously extended the use of Glengarry- Horse Farm and all its advantages 
to Frances Shimer. The main building, over 100 feet long, was designed 
in the colonial style to match the buildings of the campus. There are 
stalls for twenty-two horses and a large central exercise space. The build- 
ing also contains an apartment for the trainer, the director's office, a 
beautiful lounge and rest room. 

The Stables are operated as an institution entirely distinct from the 
college The director is Miss Mildred Jaynes, who for thirteen years was 
director of physical education on the campus. All arrangements for 
courses are made with the director and all fees for riding are paid to her. 
Full credit in the physical education department is given for all instruc- 
tion in equitation. Students are transported to and from the Farm in 
a station wagon.

STUDENT REGULATIONS 



Residence halls — Students from out of town are required in all cases, 
unless residing with near relatives, to occupy rooms in the residence 
halls. Students living on the campus avoid many distractions, come into 
close contact with the life of the college, and are more likely to regard 
the school work as the one thing demanding their best efforts. They are 
led to cultivate a healthy spirit of self-reliance. Not infrequently the 
best and most lasting results of school life arc derived from its associa- 
tions. 

Students are required to care for their own rooms. On days when 
classes are in session the rooms must be clean and in order by nine o'clock. 
Students whose housekeeping habits are unsatisfactory may be asked to 
employ the hall assistant to render additional help and instruction. 

As a precaution against fire, the use of matches and electric devices 
it prohibited in students' rooms. Electric plate and irons are provided at 
convenient places. 

All rooms are furnished with single beds (l feet x 6 feet 3 inches), 
pillows (20 inches wide), chairs, study tables, chest of drawers, and 
window shades. The windows are six feet six inches by four feet: the 
tops of the chest of drawers 38 x 19 inches. Students furnish rugs (two 
feet by six is a convenient size), bedding including a mattress pad cur- 
tail^, towels, cup. fork, and spoon (for use at spreads and picmcs). It^s 
also recommended that the>' provide themselves u;tth a hot-water bottle, 
and heavy walking shoes. 

Laundry— Clothing which is to be sent to the college laundry should 
be plain and should be marked by means of name tapes beanng the full 
name, not the initials only. These may be ordered through the busmess 
office at any time and the cost charged to the students bookstore ac- 
count. White laundry bags should be used. 

Absences-Students are expected to attend all school ^''jg?f ; /5['

three days at one time. Students are not excused from any regular school 
duty becditse of guests. 

Telephones — ^Two pay telephones, one in West Hall and one in 
Hathaway Hall, are provided for the use of students. It is requested that 
calls to students be made, whenever possible, during recreation hours. 
Students will not be called from classes or other academic appointments 
tc answer the telephone. Communications by telegraph arc subject to 
the approval of the Dean. 

Express and telegrams — ^All express and telegrams should be sent in 
care of the college and should be prepaid to avoid delay. 

Special Permissions— Sptcizl requests for permissions of any kind 
should come from the parent directly to the Dean of Students, not 
through the student. Until written request has been made to the Dean 
and direct answer has been received, parents should not consent to stu- 
dents' requests which involve suspension of college regulations. 

Sercet Sodeties— All secret societies are forbidden. 

A complete statement regarding student regulations can be found in 
"Student Handbook" prepared by the Student-Faculty Council. Each

ENDOWMENTS 



Frances Shimer College is now undertaking a Development Prc^.,,,^ 
to enlarge its educational scope and resources. It appeals to friends to be 
mindful of the varied services which the college has rendered to the 
cause of the education of young women for a period now approachincr 
a century. 

Gifts and bequests for scholarships will aid worthy young women 
who arc not wholly able financially to secure an education. A relatively 
small amount of money invested for such purpose makes returns far in 
excess of its market measure or value. The college welcomes the oppor- 
tunity to become stewards of such funds* and to aid private individual 
and friends to realize, in human satisfaction, the greatest rewards froc 
their gifts. 



FORM OF BEQUEST FOR ENDOWMENT 

I give and bequeath to the Trustees of The Frances Shimer Academj 
of the University of Chicago, located at Mount Carroll, Carroll County, 

Illinois, the sum of $ to be invested 

for the permanent endowment of the Academy. 



FORM OF BEQUEST FOR SCHOLARSHIP 
I give and bequeath to the Trustees of The Frances Shimer Academy 
of the University of Chicago, located at Mount Carroll, Carroll County^ 

Illinois, the sum of $ to be inverted 

and called the Scholarship. 



FORM OF BEQUEST FOR GENERAL PURPOSES 

I bequeath to my executors the sum of 

dollars, in trust, to pay over the same ^P 

after my decease, to the person who, when the sum is payable, shall act 
as Treasurer of Frances Shimer Academy of the University of Chicago, 
located in Mount Carroll, Illinois, to be applied to the uses and purpo« 
of said Institution as directed by its Trustees. 

(This form may be used for bcquctts for endowment and Kholarshjp purpo^et 
also.)
