In order to meet the wants of a larger class of Students, three courses of 
study are provided. 'Jlie Normal P:nglish is designed to meet the increasing 
demand for teachers in our Common Schools, and is heartily commended to 
young ladles and gentlemen who desire thorough instruction and drill in the 
F]nglish l)ranches. To those who complete this course a Diploma, expressing the 
scholarship attained, will be given. 

'I'lie course Iq Science and Literature is iiit(;nded to give wider culture and 
more thorough mental discipline. It dllTcM's from the Classical Course mainly in 
that it omits the (Jreek Language entirely, and makes Latin elective with (Ger- 
man or French during the tirst two years. 

Young ladies will ])e allowed to substitute Drawing and Painting, or Music, 
for Analytical (Jeometry and Calculus. liefore entering upon this course the Stu- 
dent nuist be thoroughly acciuainted with the Conunon English branches. 

The Classical Course is much more extensive than is ordinarily pursued at 
Seminaries. It will compare favorably Avith the Curriculum adopted by our best 
institutions of learning. We offer it with entire conrtdence to young men who 
are preparing for professional life, and also to young ladies who aspire to superior 
intellectual culture. The preparation for this course^ is a thorough knowledge of 
the studies embraced in the tirst year of the Normal English Course, with Latin, 
Crammar and Reader. 

^'omig men desiring to enter the 1()W(m- or higluM' classes in College are 
allowed to take such studies as they need for that purpose. 



Normal English Course. 

'lliis course is ({(^signed lo accommodiUc young men wliose time for school is 
limit eij, and es))('(jall\ tliose who are })re])aring to tc.ieli in our Common Schools. 
A Diph'iHa will l)e gi\en to those whoeomph'te the course.

WiLLiAMsroKT is oiiG Of tlic most beautiful and healthy places In thf^ State. It 
has never been subject to epidemics of any kind. Many coming to the School 
sickly have returned fully restored, 'riie location Is central and accessible from 
all (luarters liallroads bring- us within a few hours' ride of Elmlra, Lock Haven, 
Erie, Danville, Pottsville, llarrlsburg-, lIollldaysbur<jr, I'hlladelphla, Baltimore and 
New York. No more desirable position for a Seminary of Learning- can be found. 

ORGANIZATION 



The School Is org:anlzed on the most approved plan of the best Institutions of 
New York and New Eng-land. It embraces both sexes, under the same govern- 
ment and Instruction. The members of the Faculty occupy apartments In the 
building-, eat at the same table, and have constant oversight of all the Students. 

The Ladles' private and pul)llc rooms are entirely separate from the others, 
and ther(^ is no association of tlie s(\\es but In the presence of their Instructors. 
The Ladies and (Tcuflcitwn hare less freedom of intereonrse here than at hintw. 

The happy Inlluence, mutually exerted in their slight association In the recita- 
tion room, at the table, and In \\\v public exercises of the chapel, Is to be seen In 
the cultivation of a cheerful and animated disposition. In the formation of good 
habits and manners, in ardtmt devotion to study, and In the attainment of high 
moral characti^r. 'lliese, witli many other valuable results, have (established the 
fact tliat the best plan for a school is, according to tlie (nident design of Provi- 
dence in tlie constitution of society, on the basis of a well regulated Christian 
family. 

ach;()mmoi)ati()ns. 

'i'he IJuiidings will accommodate (two in a room) over two hundred Students. 
Tli(\v are brick, heated l)y furnaces In tlie cellar, and supi^iied with water. The 
rooms arc large and well vtMitllated. In tli(> entire arrangement of the buildings 
great cai-c has biM'ii taken lor the comfort and heidth of tlu; occupants. The 
L^rou IK Is contain about live acres, alTording suMicient room for exercise and play.

TFKMS OF ADMISSION.

School Is not designed to be a IIous(,' of Refuge. 

2. Must arrange with the Treasurer all bills before attending nxatations.

lYesident,

The rooms are furnished with all heavy articles, l)ut the Stud(Mits must ])ring 
tli(!ir own sheets, (for double beds,) i)illows, pillow cases, blankets, counterpanes 
and towels, and lind their own brooms, mirrors, coal oil and lamps.

shoes, an umbrella, and a pair of slippers to be worn wlilh^ in tlu^ building. Ml

APPARATl'S. 

Th(^ S(»mlnary is furnished with a collection of apparatus, together with full 
s(»ts of (ilobes. Maps and Charts, and a Cabinet of Minerals, thus affording facility 
for illustration and experiment. 







DISCIPLINE 



Tlie (lisclpltne Is firm, but mild and impartial. While every encouragement 
A\ ill be given to the orderly and studious, and due allowance be made for youthful 
indiscretion, yet the lawless and refractory cannot long remain among us. 

RELIGIOUS SERVICES. 

Every Student is required to attend religious services daily, as well as public 
Avorship, morning and evening, every Sabbath, at such place as parents or guardians 
may designate, the President assenting. 

N. E.— Each Student must be supplied with a Bible, to be read without note or 
sectarian comment, in the services of the Chapel. The whole School read in concert. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

Besides the regular weekly exercises in Composition and Declamation, there 

are three nourishing Literary Societies in the Institution : the " Belles Lettres," 
" (Jamma Epsilon,"' and '- Tripartite Union," each of which prepares and reads to 
the Scliool a paper once a month. About 2,250 volumes are In the Societies' 
Libraries. 

MERIT AND DEMERIT. 

A strict weekly record is k(^pt of all the exercises of the School, from which 
record tlie Students will be graded. 

A record of demerits is also kept. Tardiness, unexcused absences from required 
exercises, and all disorderly conduct, will subject tlie Student to demerit marks. 
'\\n\ sucli marks bring a private reproof before the Faculty; twenty a public 
reprimand bc^fore the whole School ; and thirty may send the offender away. 
Sessional reports are sent to parents when recpiested. 

A WORD TO PARENTS. 

1. CT-'-^M-y to liave your cliildrcm here on the first day of the term, hut not 
hrforc, as we will not be ready to rciH'ive tliem. The classes are on the second day 
tornied, and if will be better for all concerned that the Student starts regularly 
wif li his class. 

2. If ])()ssn)le, do not call them away during the session. Absence, if only for 
a r-w (lays, disarrnriges fhe class, and is generally the beginning of irregularity 
(»n the ])a!-t of tlie scholar. 

:i !)(» not allow yonr children to leave the school before the examinations, 
unless It cannot be avoided. Serious inconvenience, to all concerned, often arises 
from a neglect of this caution. 

I. Sui)i)ly them rt'ft/ sparingJii with spending money. I'arents cannot be too 
c;mt ions on this ])oint. 

r.. Select forvour child one of the Inst I'ucfors, as a patron, to distribute liis 
funds. In this way a nioi'(\judicious use of your money will b(^ made, and your 
child will l)e kept fi'om nian\ temi)t;itlons.

t ion;il rules :

Williamsport is the county seat of Lycoming County, 
Pennsylvania, and is situated on the north side of the West 
Branch of the Susquehanna river, about one hundred miles 
north of Harrisburg. The city has a population of twenty 
thousand, is beautifully located in a fertile valley, running 
east and west, displays much enterprise as well as com- 
mendable taste in the character of its public buildings and 
private residences, and is the centre of the immense lumber 
trade of Northern Pennsylvania. 

In 1795, Michael Ross, a surveyor from New Jersey, 
bought the land on which the city is now built. Soon 
afterwards he laid out a town and erected a log house on 
the corner of Third and Mulberry streets, where Prof 
Davis' Commercial College has since been established. 
One square, bounded west by West street, then the western 
limit of the town, was set apart for school purposes, and 
about 181 2, a substantial brick edifice was built upon it, 
called Williamsport Academy, in which a school was main- 
tained for many years by subscription, which was among 
the first schools supported in this manner in the State. 

In 1839, the town authorities, desiring to locate the 
Academy elsewhere, sold their building to Mr. John R. 
Hall, the present owner, and with the proceeds purchased 
a lot and erected a building, which, enlarged in 1867, forms 
the west wing of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary. 



4 HISTORICAL SKET(^I1 OF 

The enterprise was not successful, however, and finally 
becomino; embarrassed financially, the following proposi- 
tions, dated January 5, 1848, and signed by John Smith, 
B. H. Crever, J. S. Williams and Charles McClay, in behalf 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church, were presented to the 
Town Council of the borough of Williamsport: 

1. That said authorities shall make a legal transfer of 
their Academy building, with its grounds and appurte- 
nances, to a Board of Trustees, under the style and title of 
Trustees of '' Dickinson Seminary, at Williamsport, Pa." — 

2. Said board shall have power to fill its own vacancies, 
and two-thirds thereof shall be members of the M. E. 
Church. 

3. A school shall be established under the title of Dick- 
inson Seminary, at Williamsport, Pa., and auxiliary to 
Dickinson College at Carlisle. 

4. Instruction shall be given to youths of both sexes, 
desiij^ned to afford a liberal education to females, and 
qualify young men to enter upon a college course. 

5. The school shall be under the supervision and patron- 
age of the Baltimore Annual Conference of the M. \i. 
Church, and shall sustain a religious character similar to 
the institution at Carlisle. 

C). \\1ienever the AI. 1^^.. Church shall cease to use the 
property for educational purposes it shall revert to the 
boi'ough of W^illiamsport. 

7. 11ie debts now resting upon the property shall be 
assumed b\' the M. 1^. Church. 

8. The above stipulations are conditioned upon the 
sanction of the I^altimore Conference. 

Thi: Town (^)uncil accepted the propositions, stipulating 
that the remaining third of the trustees should be of other 
denominations of Christians, that pupils from all denomi- 
nations shouhl be received upon ecjual terms, and that the 
reversion of the property to the borough should carry with 
it all improvements made thereon. The members of the

Town Council present at this meeting were A. Updegraff, 
President, R. Pleming, J. H. PTillmer and John Ulmer. 

In the following March, the Baltimore Conference con- 
sented ''to extend its supervision and patronage to the 
Seminary in the form and manner set forth by the Town 
Council of Williamsport," but declined to assume any 
pecuniary liabilities. It was recommended that a Board of 
Trustees be appointed, consisting of the Presiding Elder of 
Northumberland District, the preacher in charge of Wil- 
liamsport Circuit, twelve lay brethren of the M. P>. Church 
and seven members of other Christian denominations, to 
be nominated by the Presiding Elder of Northumberland 
District and confirmed by the Conference. They also sug- 
gested the appointment of a financial agent to operate in 
behalf of the Seminary. The President of the Seminary 
was to be a minister of the M. \i. Church, appointed by 
the Presiding Bishop of the Baltimore Conference and 
confirmed by the Board of Trustees, and he was to be 
ex-ofificio president of the board. 

In accordance w^ith the recommendation of the Confer- 
ence, the following appointments were made: 

Rev. V). 11. Crever, Financial Agent. 
Rev. Thomas Row.man, President.

HISTORICAL SKETCH OF 



WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY. 



The Williamsport Academy, now styled Dickinson Sem- 
inary, was a plain brick building, forty by sixty feet in size, 
two Stories high, and sadly out of repair, with a consider- 
able debt, and no resources whatever. The trustees, 
however, were equal to the emergency. They resolved 
that ten thousand dollars were required to place the 
Seminary in proper condition to begin its work, pledging 
themselves individually to earnest effort, and authorizing 
the agent to proceed at once to secure subscriptions and 
_^ donations to repair the old, and erect additional buildings. 
At a meeting in August, the Seminary was fairly inau- 
gurated. The Faculty comprised Rev. Thomas Bowman, 
President, with Rev. B. H. Crever, Mrs. Crever and Miss 
C. K. Crever, assistant teachers. A schedule of prices for 
boarding and tuition was fixed, a course of study was 
arranged, and it was determined to formally open the 
institution on the fourteenth of the following September. 

We have no record of the *' opening," but at the close of 
the school year President Bowman reported the number of 
pupils for the winter term, i6o to 170; for the spring term, 
125 to 130, and whole number entered during the year^ 
212. 

A large proportion of these were, doubtless, day 
scholars, but it was certainly an encouraging beginning, 
representing efficient, as well as hard work by both teach- 
ers and trustees. 

Meanwliile the trustees were projecting measures looking 
towards large and permanent results. Five acres of land 
adjoining that secured with the Academy were purchased, 
a builchng committee was appointed, ^an architect em- 
plo)'ed and a plan adopted, while the financial agent was 
urged to press the claims of the young institution, and 
procure the means to help it forward. 

July 3(1, i<S5o— less than two years after the school was 
opened— the corner stone of what now forms the east wing 
of the Seminary buildings was laid with appropriate cere""- 
monies, Kev. Drs. Hodgson and Gere delivering pertinent 



addresses. The following March it was finished at a cost 
of J^ 1 0,000.00, and immediately occupied. 

Four years later the wings were joined by a building six 
stories high, thus completing a commanding edifice, sub- 
stantially built of brick, furnished with modern improve- 
ments, capable of accommodating two hundred boarding 
students, and an equal number of day scholars, with 
apartments for the President, professors and employees, at 
a total cost of ;^42,575.o8. 

These results were not achieved without difficulty. Be- 
ginning without money, with no resources upon which to 
draw, save the generosity of those who might be influ- 
enced by their interest in education, or the appeals of the 
*' agent," with a growing school, demanding large outlays 
to supply accommodations, and tuition at the minimum, so 
that it did not cover the salaries of the teachers, the 
President and trustees were often in ''straits," and not 
unfrequently they advanced the money to meet current 
liabilities, or procured it by loans for which they became 
personally responsible. 

Their faith and zeal, however, did not falter. With 
steady purpose and untiring energy they pushed the 
enterprise onward, only yielding after twelve years of 
heroic and successful struggle to what seemed inevitable 
for a long time — the sale of the institution. Donations 
were urgently solicited, but they aggregated, after paying 
expenses of agents, less than six thousand dollars; a joint 
stock company was formed, but it also failed to supply the 
needed funds, and so there was no alternative, l^^our 
friends of the Seminary, three of whom were trustees, 
however, purchased the property, and immediately offered 
it to the M. li. Church at the price which they had paid 
for it at public sale. These men were Abram Updegraff, 
an ardent and liberal friend of the Seminary from its 
inception, a trustee since March, 1850, treasurer since 
i860, and during the last ten years both president and 
treasurer of the Board of Trustees; Hon. John Smith,

trustee and treasurer durinij the first twelve years of the 
Seminary's existence, and with an interv^al of seven years — 
from 1863 to 1870 — elected annually to the office; Colonel 
Jacob Sallade, a very efficient trustee during fourteen years, 
when he declined a re-election, but still maintains a prac- 
tical relation to the institution, with unabating interest in 
its success; and Levi Hartman, associated with Colonel 
Sallade in erecting the central building of the Seminary. 

The l£ast Baltimore Conference wisely accepted the 
proffer of these gentlemen, forming a stock company, of 
which many of the preachers became members ; and thus 
the existence of the Seminary was secured, and it was con- 
tinued under the control of the M. K. Church. 

In 1869, the Preachers' Aid Society, of the Central 
Pennsylvania Conference of the M. li. Church, bought a 
controlling interest in the stock, and since that time it has 
added to the original purchase, until not more than twenty 
shares are now held by other parties. 

Rev. Thomas (now Bishop) Bowman was President of 
the Seminary from March, 1848, to March, 1858. During 
this period the east wing and the central building, joining 
it to the old Academy, were erected, the Seminary was 
thoroughly organized and advanced to an honorable posi- 
tion among the literary institutions of the country. In 
accepting his resignation the trustees bear grateful testi- 
mony to liis eminent ability, and attribute much of the 
success of the institution to his energy, vigilance and well 
directed efforts. 

Rev. Jolin H. Dashiell succeeded Dr. Bowman, and was 
continued in the office two years, doing faithful work, 
tliougli encumbered by ahnost insuperable difficulties. In 
Marcli, 1860, lie resigned and returned to the pastorate. 

Rev. Thompson Mitchell followed Dr. Dashiell, and 
during almost ten years proved his fitness for the position 
and work by a most efficient management of all its affairs, 
lie is a man of cultivated intellect and superior judgment, 
combined with a commanding presence and character. 



Under his administration two stories were added to the 
old Academy, making it correspond with the east wing, 
and the Seminary was materially improved, both in its 
literary character and its financial interests. 

Dr. Mitchell resigned August 27, 1869, and Rev. W. Lee 
Spottswood was elected in his stead. Dr. Spottswood 
brought to the position those qualities which are embodied 
in mature age, wide culture, ripe scholarship and dignified 
character. He resigned January 8, 1874, to return to the 
more congenial work of the pastorate. During his ad-^ 
ministration the building was thoroughly repaired and 
various improvements were made at a cost of ;^8,787.62, 
$2,000 of which was donated by Hon. John Patton. 

On the thirteenth of the following F'ebruary, the present 
incumbent, Rev. Edward J. Gray, an alumnus of the Sem- 
inary, was elected President. It is a gratifying fact that 
the institution continues the work for which it w^as founded 
with increasing efficiency, and was probably never more 
successful than at the present time. 

The school is not sectarian in any sense. Though under 
the patronage and management of the M. P>. Church, it 
embodies in all its actions the original purpose, welcoming 
all to its halls w-ith equal cordiality. As a matter of fact, 
one of its officers has always been a member of another 
denomination than the Methodist. The president of the 
Board of Trustees now, and for many years, than w^hom no 
one has been more conspicuous in its history, or more 
influential in forming its character, is an honored member 
of the Presbyterian Church. Pupils attend the churches 
of which they or their parents are members, without any 
interference with previous relations or convictions. 

The course of study is quite complete and will compare 
favorably with that adopted by our best institutions of 
learning. It is designed to furnish ample facilities to those 
wdio wish to enter the lower or higher classes in college 
while at the same time it is arranijed with a view of afford- 
ing thorough instruction to young men who are preparing 



10 



JIlSTOlilt'AL .SKETCH OF 



for professional or business life, and young ladies who 
aspire to superior intelleetual culture. 

We ha\'e no means of ascertaining the exact number of 
persons who have attended the Seminary, but it may be 
safely estimated that from eight to ten thousand students 
have received academic instruction, covering from one to 
three years, while two hundred and twenty have completed 
the prescribed curriculum, graduating with the degrees the 
mstitution confers. 

The Seminary was incorporated under an act of the 
- Legislature of the State of Pennsylvania in 1849, and 
invested with the functions and powers usually pertaining 
to academic institutions, to which a supplementary act was 
added in 1854, granting the power to form a joint stock 
company, and exercise such prerogatives as the change 
required. In i860 a charter was procured, changing the 
name to Williamsport Dickinson Seminary, reducing the 
number of trustees, and authorizing the Board of Trustees 
to confer degrees and honorary titles with other institu- 
tions of higher grade. 

There are three flourishing literary societies connected 
with the Seminary. The Ik'Hes Lettres, the Gamma Epsi- 
lon, and the Tripartite Union. The first two are in the 
K'ntlemen's. and tlie last in the Ladies' Department. Each 
has a well furnished hall and a judiciously .selected library 
aggregating more tlian two thou.sand volumes. ICach pre- 
|)arcs and reads a paper in the chapel once in three weeks 
ni connection with other literary exercises, thus furnishin<^ 
mspu-ation to intelleetual culture, as well as entertainment 
tor tlic public.
