V. 



In order to meet the wants of a ]arii:er elass of Students, eight regidar 
Courses of Study are providiMl, namely: The Normal English, J^elles 



Lettres, Science and Literature, Classical, College Preparatory, Art, Musi(*, 
and l>usiness. Students may adoi)t any of these ('ourses exc^lusively, or 
may select such studies from them as they desire, subject to the approval of 
the Faculty. 

The Normal English is designed to meet the increasing demand for 
teachers in our Common Schools, and is heartily commended to young 
ladies and gentlemen wdio desire thorough instruction and drill in the 
English branches. To those who complete this Course, a Diploma express- 
ing the scholarship attained will be given. 

The Belles Lettres Course is especially arranged to accommodate young 
ladies who mi\y wish to omit the Higher Mathematics beyond Elementary 
Algebra and Geometry. It thus alfords opportunity to connect studies in 
Music and Art with a well selected Course in Literature and Science. 

Tlie Course in Science and Literature is intended to give wider culture 
and more thorough mental discipline. It differs from the Classical Course 
nuunly in that it omits the Greek Language entirely, and makes Latin elective 
with German or French during the first two years. Before entering upon 
this Course, the Student must be thoroughly acquainted with the Common 
English branches. 

The Classical Course is much more extensive than is ordinarily pursued 
at Seminaries. It will (M)mpare favorably with the curriculum adopted by 
our best institutions of learnini*;. We offer it with entire confidence to 
young nu'M who are preparing for ])rofessional 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 Academic Course. 

The College Preparatory Course is arranged for those who desire thorough 
instruction and systematic drill in all branches requisite for admission to our 
best Colleges and Universities. We commend it specially to parents who 
wish to place their sons under the watchful ('are of experienced teachers, 
Avhile they receive the literary culture of a high grade institution of learning, 
and enjoy the social advantages of a well-regulated Christian home.

The growing love of Music has largely increased the demand for competent 
music teachers. To meet this demand this Course is established. We ])resent 
it with entire confidence to those who desire to become skilled in their pro- 
fession, but who have not had an opportunity for Normal training. 

The Institution is amply supplied with first-class instruments, comprising 
Grand, Upright and Scpiare Pianos, with convenient access to a large and. 
superior Pipe Organ. 

The Course will extend through one year, upon completing which the 
Student will ])e entitled to a Diploma, with the Degree of Bachelor of Music. 

Admission to the Normal Class will be by Diploma, or upon examination 
in the studies comprised in our regular "Course in Music," or their ec^uiva- 
lents. 

Among the special advantages offered may be mentioned: (1) Careful 
instruction by a thoroughly educated German Professor of acknowledged 
ability and wide experience; (2) Daily opportunity to hear how the different 
branches of Music are taught; (8) Practical work in teaching under the per- 
sonal direction of a superior instructor ; (4) Rare facilities for cultivating a 
correct taste in music, in concerts given from time to time, and in weekl}^ 
public entertainments, partly musical, in the Seminary Chapel; (5) Connec- 
tion with a long established and widely known Literary Institution, which 
will cheerfully aid in securing for its pupils positions as teachers. 

Six lessons will be given each week, nanu'ly: Two in teaching the 
Elements of Music, two in teaching the Theory of Music, and two private 
lessons on the Piano or Grand Pipe Organ, as preferred.

Mefeheds ef InsbFUGfei©!^. 



In Elementary Arithmetic, Grammar and Geography, the catechetical 
method is largely employed, but in Higher English the same course is 
adopted which prevails in the more advanced branches of study. The 
pupil is taught to study the text b^ok by topics rather than by sentences 
or paragraphs, and encourged in the lecture room to give the substance 
of what he has learned, in his own language. In^this manner, while he is 
adding to his store of knowledge, he is enlarging his vocabulary, and while 
he is evolving principles and acquiring facts, he is increasing his power of 
expression, and thus unconsciously, it may be, but nevertheless surely, he 
lays the foundations of an easy and a concise style of composition. 

In English Literature, the origin of the English language and the growth 
of the literature are carefully traced. In this work the most interesting facts 
in the lives of the best authors and their principal productions are brought 
under review. 

Instruction in Mental Science covers the second and third terms of the 
Junior year. It embodies definitions of the mental faculties, and careful 
analyses of intellectual processes, with a brief -history of the science, the main 
purpose being to stimulate the Student^o think and investigate for himself. 



T 



Ethics, Logic and Political Economy are taught in the Senior year. 
Text-books are used and daily recitations are required. Class inquiries 
and discussions are encouraged, and familiar lectures are given from time 
to time by the teacher. 

NATURAL SCIENCE. 

« 

In the department of Natural Science, the underlying aim is to teach the 
Student to think and observe for himself, and at the same time to give him 
such a fund of practical knowledge as will fit him for the active duties of life. 
In all the branches the text-book is used as a means to gain a knowledge of 
topics rather than to be studied as an end in itself, and as far as possible the 
Student is led to the study of the objects themselves. No pains are spared to 
cultivate habits of clear, accurate and systematic thought and expression. 

Geology is taken during the first term of the Senior year. A practical 
knowledge of the common rocks and minerals is acquired, and excursions 
are made to (quarries and regions which illustrate various geological forma 
tions. During the past year the class made surveys of the Lower Helderberg 
limestone quarries east of the city, the Chemung building stone quarries on 
the north, a section through North Bald Eagle Mountain into Mosquito Valley, 
comprising four members of the Silurian, and colored sections, drawn to a 
scale, were made of each place visited. Each Student made a written report 
and collected characteristic specimens of rocks and fossils. Seven different 
geological formations, fossil bearing, are admirably illustrated by outcrops 
within a few miles of the Seminary. 

Zoology occupies the first term of the Senior year. The work, during the 
first half of the term, consists of acquiring a knowledge of the structure of 
the principal classes of the several sub-kingdoms, while during the last half 
the comparative anatomy and physiology of the animal kingdom is taken up, 
and the Student is led to appreciate the finely graded relationship that exists 
between the classes. Orton's text-book is used and as much laboratory work 
is introduced as is practicable. This year the class studied a mussel, cray 
fish, fly, grasshopper, crab and a fish. 

Chemistry occupies the second and third terms of the Senior year. The 
principles of the atomic theory are thoroughly taught by lectures. There is 
constant practice in writing chemical equations, and throughout the Course 
the main facts are illustrated by experiment. During the third term, in 
addition to the Course in General Chemistry, the class take a Course in 
Qualitative Analysis. 

Physics embraces two terms of the Junior year. Mechanics, Sound, and 
Heat are taken in the Fall term ; and Optics, Electricity, and Magnetism in 
the Winter. The principles and laws are illustrated as far as practicable by 
apparatus. The relation between the (lifl*erent branches is held strongly 
before the mind, and practical questions, drawn from every-day life, are con- 
stantly brought forward to teach the Student to apply the principles learned 
in the text-book. 

In Botany, after a few weeks of work in Gray's School and Field Book, 
the Student goes directly to the plant, analysis occupying the remainder of 
the term. An herbarium is collected and prepared by each member of thq 
class. 



44 



WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY. 



Lectures are given from time to time upon subjects of interest to the 
department. 

ANCIENT LANGUAGES. 

In the departments of Greek and Latin, scrupulous attention is given to 
the grammatical structure of these languages, their relation to English, the 
illustration and application of principles, accurate translation, and to the 
literary significance of each author studied. It is aimed to give to the classics 
by these means their proper place as an aid to expression, to a thorough 
knowledge of our own language and to the i^nrsiiit of other languages, as 
well as to afford the usual mental discipline. (Jaretul attention is given, 
also, to those preparing for college or for professional study. 

MODERN LANGUAGES. 

Modern Languages are taught with a view of enabling the Student to read 
them at sight, and write and speak them idiomatically. The Course com- 
prises two, three or more years, as the Student may desire. 

In German, the text-books for the first year are Cook's Otto's German 
Course, and the accompanying Reader; for the second year, Deutsche Gram- 
matik and some of the German Classics, which are translated, parsed and 
analyzed according to the German method, the Student being required to 
to make explanations of the text in German. 

Besides the study of Classical German, Ahn-Henn's Conversations are 
studied as the basis of conversational exercises in the class. The Student is 
required to recite in the language as soon as he has sutticient knowledge of 
construction to form a sentence. 

Lectures on the application of Grimm's Law of the Progression of Mutes, 
and on the Literature, are given during the Course. 

In French, the text books for the first year are De Fivas' French Grammar, 
and Un Philosophe sous les Toits (Souvestre), accompanied with various 
original exercises, oral and written. 

During the second year some standard authors are read. The pupil is 
grounded in the principles of the Grammar, and is made familiar with the 
most important rules of daily occurrence in translating from English into 
French. 

Special attention is given to the pronunciation and to the idioms of the 
language; and to meet the practical needs of the Student, the French 
newspaper is occasionally read in class. 

MATHEMATICS. ' 

The Course in Mathematics is coextensive with that in the majority of our 
best colleges. Although the study is considered as chiefiy disciplinary, the 
aim throughout the Course is to acquaint the Student with the instruments 
in most familiar use by the practical scientists and mathematicians of the day, 
as well as to strengthen his mental faculties and increase his logical acumen! 
At the commencement of each subject, a familiar lecture is given on its history 
and practical utility. 

Algebra is begun, the Student being led slowly through the rudiments, 
and made to review the fundamentals daily. After two terms spent in 



t^ 



i 



.•\ 



FORTJKTII ANNUAL CATALOGUE.

studying the elements, the University Algebra is taken up at the Calculus of 
Radicals, and continued through Quadratics, Proportions, Permutations and 
Combinations, Progressions, Identical Equations, Decomposition of Fractions, 
Residual Formula, Newton's Binomial Theorem, Method of Indeterminate 
Coefticients, Reversion of Series, Logarithms, Rule of Des Cartes, Cardan's 
Solution of Cubic Equations, and Sturm's Theorem. The aim of the instruc- 
tion in advanced Algebra is to free the Student from his previous dependence 
upon the text-book, and to cultivate ability and taste for original mathematical 
work. Great stress is laid upon mathematical generalization and the concise 
demonstration of principles. 

The Course in Ged'metry covers seven books, embracing both the Plane 
and Solid Geometry. The demonstrations are partly oral and partly written, 
the written exercises being deemed a valuable aid to the cultivation of 
accuracy of thought and expression. Plane Trigonometry is taken entire, and 
the class is exercised in the solution of practical problems. In surveying, 
the Theory and Practice are combined. The class is conveniently divided, 
and each division in turn is taken by the teacher into the field for practical 
work. Plots of the surveys made are drawn, and, together with the compu- 
tations, are submitted to the teacher for inspection. 

One term is spent in Analytical Geometry, completing the Cartesian 
Method of Coordinates, the Method of Polar Coordinates, and the Trans- 
formation of Coordinates. To Calculus two terms are given, covering, in the 
Differential Calculus, the Differentiation of Functions of a Single Variable, 
Maclaurin's and Taylor's Theorems, together with the deduction of the 
Binomial Theorem and the Theory of Logarithms, the Evaluation of Inde 
terminate Forms, and the Maxima and Minima of Functions of a Single 
Variable; and in the Integral Calculus, the Integration of all the Elementary 
Forms. 

HISTORY AND RHETORIC. 

In the study of History, the object is to familiarize the Student with the 
main facts and principles, thus forming a foundation on which to build by 
future reading and investigation. To this end the text book is thoroughly 
studied in connection with a Manual of Classical Antiquities and an Atlas, 
while at the same time the Student is encouraged to consult other authorities 
and bring in additional matter bearing on the subject. Recitation is by the 
analytical and topical methods. 

Special attention is given to instruction in Rhetoric, on account of its 
great value to the Student. The principles of good writing are studied and 
analyzed with a view to their practical application. 

During the last term much of the time is devoted to original productions 
in the various departments of literary composition, on themes assigned by 
the teacher. These productions are read before the class, where general 
criticisms are offered, after which they are handed to the teacher for more 
careful correction.

ladies and gentlemen a su[)erior education. It is organized upon 
the ()lans which have been approved by long experience, and adopted 
by the best schools in this country, embracing all modern aj)pliances 
in means and methods of instruction. It was founded in 1848, and 
is regularly chartered by the Legislature of the State of Pennsyl- 
vania, and authorized to confer degrees upon those who complete 
the j)rescribed Courses of Study. 

The Seminary is under the patronage of the Central Pennsylvania 
Conference, being owned and practically managed V>y the Preachers' 
Aid Society. As this investment was rather to promote the import- 
ant work of Higher Christian Education than to make money, the 
j)a]amount purpose is to combine thorough instruction and careful 
moral training with the comforts of a good home, at the lowest 
possible rates. •

Williamsport is one of the most beautiful and healthful places 
in the Stale. It has never been subject to epidemics of any kind. 
Many coming to the school in poor health have returned fully 
restore^. The citv is situated on the West Branch of the Sus- 
quelianna liiver, has a population of thirty thousand, is widely 
known for its intelligence, its enterprise, the taste displayed in the 
character of its public buildings and private residences, and the 
moral ap|)liances with which it is furnished. In small towns and 
villages the facilities for culture — intellectual as well as aesthetic and 
moral — are generally limited, rarely reaching beyond the institution 
itself, and hence student life must become monotonous, lacking the 
inspiration which a larger place with wider opportunities affords.

Twenty seven churches, an active tem[)erance organization, and a 
branch of the Young Men's Christian Association, en>bracing many 
of the most earnest Christians in the connnunity, with a large library 
free to all, and accessible at all times, indicate some of the religious 
influences brought to bear upon the young in Williamsport. 

Byildings. 

The buildings occupy an eminence overlooking the city, and are

surrounded by beautiful shade trees, while the grounds contai 
acres, affording ample room for exercise and play. They are brick, 
heated by steam, provided with fire escapes and supplied throughout 
with pure mountain water. 

Both departments are furnished with bath-rooms and all modern 
appliances for comfort, and in the entire arrangement of the build- 
ings great care has been taken for the convenience and health of the 
occupants. 

The ladies' apartments are entirely separate from the others, a7id 
there is no association of the sexes but in the j^resence of their 
instructors The happy influence, mutually exerted, in their slight 
association in the recitation room, at the table, and in the public 
exercises in the Chapel, is to be seen in the cultivation of a cheerful 
and animated disposition, in the formation of good habits and ma.n 
ners, in ardent devotion to study, and in the attainment of liigh moral 
character. These, with many other valuable results, have established 
the fact that the best plan for a school is, according to the evident 
design of Providence in the constitution of society, on the basis of 
a well-regulated Christian family. The members of the Faculty 
live in the building, eat at the same tables, and have constant over- 
sight of all the Students.

Recognizing the importance of physical culture, ample provision 
is made for appropriate athletic sports, as well as for systematic 
physical development. A military company is organized, with drill 
during recreation hours, for the gentlemen. 

Suitable exercise is provided for the ladies in calisthenics and 
^ii^^t gynmastics, under the direction of a competent teacher. All 
the ladies are required to participate in these exercises. 

A gymnasium, forty by sixty feet, has been erected and furnished 
for the use of all Students, under proper regulation, for which tiftv

at such place as parents or guardians 7nay designate, the President 
assenting. 

N. B. — 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. 

A general experience meeting is held every Sabbath at half-past 
eight A. M., and generally a service of song at six P. M., continuing 
one hour. Also, a prayer meeting for the ladies and gentlemen on 
Thursday evenings. Attendance upon these social services is optional 
with the Students. 

Exercises in Spelling, Etymology, Reading, Declamation and 
Original Composition are required of all the Students throughout 
the year. In addition to these, public exercises are held in the 
Seminary Chapel every Friday evening, at which the more advanced 
Students read essays or deliver original speeches, interspersed with 
vocal or instrumental music, furnished by the Music Department. 

liifcepa^Y SeGiofeieS. 

There are three flourishing Literary Societies connected with the 
Seminary— the llelles Lettres, the (lanuna Epsilon and the Tripartite 
Union. The first two are in the gentlemen's, and the last in the 
ladies' department. Each has a well furnished hall, and a judiciously 
selected library, aggregating more than two thousand volumes. Each 
prepares and reads a paper in the Chapel once in three weeks, in 



•i -» 



connection with other literary exercises, thus furnishing inspiration 
to intellectual culture, as well as entertainment for the Students and 
the public. 

ri^Sfeii>yGfei©H. 

Our methods are modern, and adapted to the need of the 
Sf ilents. No pains are spared to give thorouglu practical and ^ 
scholarly traiiiiiig in all the departments by teachers of superior 
attrnninontsand experience. Besides instruction in connection with 
the text book, lectures illustrated by experiments are given from 
time to time. 



The gentlemen should be provided with durable clothing, heavy 
boots or shoes, an umbrella, and a pair of slippers to be worn in the 
room. The ladies must be supplied with thick walking shoes, an 
umbrella. India-rubber overshoes, water-proof cloak and a suit for 
exercise in calisthentics and light gymnastics. Their attire for gen- 
eral use should be neat and simple, but not elegant or expensive. 
All loearing apparel must he plainly marked with full 7iame of the 
owner. We suggest that in addition to towels, napkins and napkin 
ring, each pupil bring a knife, fork and spoon, for use in case of 
sick?iess. 

R \X7©i^d b© l^aFeHfes. 

1 8@"Try to have your children here on the first day of the 
term, but 7iot before, as we shall not be ready to receive them. The 
classes are formed on the second day, and^t will be better for all 
concerned, that the Student start regularly with his class. 

2. If possible, do not call them away during the session. Ab- 
sence, if only for a few days, disarranges the class, and is generally 
the beginning of irregularity on the part of the scholar. 

3. Do not allow your 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. 

4. Supply them very sparingly with si)ending money. Parents 
cannot be too cautious on this point. 

5. Select for your child one of the instructors as a patron, to 
distribute his funds. In this way a more judicious use of your money 
will be made, and your child will be kept from many temptations.

Jg®"Students not boarding in the Institution must observe the 
following rules: 

1. Attend daily prayers. 

2. Must attend all the Seminary exercises punctually. 

3. Must spend the intervals between recitations in the Study Hall. 

4. Must account for all absence by written excuse without delay, 
time and number of recitations being specified. 

5. Must not visit the rooms of boarders without permission.

It may safely be estimated that from eight to ten thousand person^ 
have received Academic instruction, covering from one to three years, 
in Williamsport Dickinson Seminary, while four hundred and sixty- 
one have completed the prescribed curriculum, graduating with the 
degrees the Institution confers. We desire to brincr all these into 
active sympathy and co-operation with their Alma Mater, and hence 
we ask all persons to whom this notice may come, who have been 
students here, to send us their address, with any information con- 
cerning their personal history that may be of general interest, as we 
wish to compile a complete catalogue of all the Students now living. 

There is a general meeting of the Alumni every year, the day before 
Commencement. We extend a most cordial invitation to all old 
Students to attend the meeting this year, which will be held June 
20th, afternoon and evening If you cannot come, let us hear from 
you by letter. 

And now, may I not ask you to aid in enlarging the S|)here and 
increasing the power of our Alma Mater? You can do nnich in 
many ways, but you can at least direct those looking for a good 
I>oarding School to ours, or send me their address on a postal card. 
Carry the Seminary in your heart. She is doing a worthy work, and 
earnestly asks her sons and daughters to help her.

FROM REPORT OF 1881. 

^^ This excellent School is already widely known to be most delightfully and 
healthfully situated in the beautiful city of Williamsport, and is accessible 
from all points by direct lines of railroad, all of which furnish excursion 
rates to both students and patrons. The buildings are large, well arranged, 
and especially adapted to their uses. 

Rev. E. J. Gray, A. M., the efficient, genial and scholarly President, 
impresses all with his comprehensive and practical views of the educational 
demands of the times; but his eminent fitness for the place he occupies is 
demonstrated by the actual results he has achieved, while the skill and ability 
of the Faculty by which he is sustained were manifested to the Committee in 
the recitations, examinations, and public exercises of the classes in a most 
commendable degree. Their methods of instruction require a mastery of 
principles as well as a recitation of lessons, and by the process of topical 
discussion rather than catechetical exercise, their success was evinced in the 
clearness of apprehension, thoroughness of preparation and independence of 
thought on the part of all the students. A fine Preparatory Department 
furnishes to children the rare opportunity of entering the School with the 
primer and passing up through all its grades of study. In addition to the 
regular Academic Course, which embraces the Ancient and Modern Languages, 
Natural and Moral Science, Mathematics and Belles Lettres, are the ornamental 
branches of Music, vocal and instrumental. Painting and Drawing, Elocution 
also receiving its proper share of attention. Specimens of exquisite skill and 
beauty from the brushes of the students adorned the Chapel walls, to impress 
the admirer with the extent of proficiency attained in this branch. Professor 
Voelkler, in charge of the Department of Music, has no superior in his art in 
this country, and possesses in a high degree all those gentlemanly (lualilies 
necessary to recommend him to the confidence and patronage of parents who 
seek for their children a finished musical education. And throughout the 
Institution there is a prevailing atmosphere of discipline, industry and 
enthusiasm on the part of both teachers and students that is felt by the most 
transient visitor, while wise and wholesome religious restraints and influences 
are constantly operating with the happiest results. The large number of those 
wlio come from the immediate vicinity, preferring the Seminary to High 
Schools of the greatest merit and free tuition, is sufficient evidence of the 
esteem the Institution commands at home. 

The exercises of Commencement were attended with remarkable interest, 
and the eager throng that crowded the vast hall made the heart of every lover 
of education to rejoice that the day of popular enthusiasm over thJ great

cause is actually at hand. Twenty-seven in all comprised the Graduating 
Class, the largest in the history of the Institution. The orations and essays 
were highly creditable, both in preparation and delivery, and throughout 
displayed the relative prominence given to the moral with the literary in the 
training of the minds that produced them. 

The Committee feel warranted in assuring both preachers and people who 
have children to educate, that a single visit to this worthy Institution would 
not only convince them of the truthfulness of this report, but at once induce 
them to select it as a safe and successful investment.

FROM REPORT OF 1882. 

The Board of Visitors from the Philadelphia, Baltimore and Central 
Pennsylvania Conferences, after a thorough examination into the condition 
and prospects of this old and honored Institution, have great pleasure in 
submitting a very highly favorable report to their several Conferences. The 
School is located in one of the most beautiful and prosperous sections of the 
great State of Pennsylvania, and in the midst of a population of unusual 
enterprise and intelligence. The spacious buildings, situated on an eminence, 
with extensive grounds, are in excellent condition, and well supplied with all 
the appliances required by a first class institution of its kind, with an ample 
corps of well trained and experienced teachers, who have the entire respect 
and confidence of the school, as well as of the community. 

The head of the working force. Rev. E. J. Gray, has proved his fitness for 
the place he occupies by most efficient management of the Institution for 
many years. It is believed that it never exerted so commanding an influence 
and was never so effective in its great work as at present. 

The order and discipline of the School are among its marked features, 
and while it is not denominational in any narrow sense, it maintains very 
thoroughly the creed of our great aggressive Evangelism, and hence revivals 
are common among the students, and nearly all of them are professors of 
religion. It has happened in other schools, to the great grief of Christian 
parents, that their children have returned, after graduating, if not actually 
lost to the Church, yet with only a nominal religion ; but we feel assured that 
the young people in this Seminary have all the helps and stimulants to a 
thoroughly Christian life which are to be found in our best Christian homes, 
and that it is as much the desire of the excellent President and his assistants 
to develop the religious character of those entrusted to their care as to pro- 
mote their intellectual growth and culture. 

The exercises of Commencement Week by the various classes, the Literary 
Societies and the Department of Music, were of very creditable character 
indeed. The literary productions and efforts in the various contests and 
entertainments were executed in a manner evincing a mental drill rarely 
equaled in schools of such grade. The large number of students participating 
in them, and the numerous friends of tlie students and of the Seminary in

attendance, imparted an air of interest, enthusiasm and prosperity abundantly 
satisfa(;tory to the most exacting investigator. In preparation and delivery of 
orations and essays a remarkably high standard was well sustained through- 
out. After careful inquiry and persoriaT observation, wx^ heartily recommend 
this very excellent School to all who have children to educate, and feel 
assured that the great dominant puri)Ose of Christian education will be as 
certainly attained within its walls as within those of any similar institution.

FROM REPORT OF 1883. 

This well-known Seminary is in a most prosperous condition. The School 
is located in the beautiful and enterprising city of Williamsport, Pa., and 
furnished with all the appliances of a first class institution of learning. The 
grounds are ample; the buildings are spacious, in excellent repair, and 
admirably adapted to their uses. The teachers are men and women of broad 
culture, well qualified for, and assiduously devoted to, their work. Most of 
them have had large experience, and all enjoy the respect and confidence of 
the school and community. 

Rev. E. J. Gray, D. D., is eminently fitted for the position he holds as 
President. By his efficient management the Institution is steadily increasing 
in the number of students and thoroughness of instruction. We find that 
the common objections against the coeducation of the sexes do not apply to 
Dickinson Seminary. It is the most home-like school of which we have any 
knowledge, wiiile the order and discipline are worthy of special commenda- 
tion. The social and religious facilities afforded the students, so necessary 
in character-building, are all that can be desired, and the young ladies and 
gentlemen return to their homes with hearts and minds thoroughly imbued 
with the spirit of aggressive Christianity. Parents may rest assured that 
such advantages are enjoyed as must promote Christian growth, as well as 
intellectual culture. 

The examinations were thorough and entirely satisfactory. The works of 
art which adorned the Chapel walls, comprising portraits, landscapes, panels, 
plaques, crayons, and china decorations, were exceptionally good, reflecting 
great credit upon both teacher and pupils. The Music Department, under 
the direction of Professor Vo'lkler, maintains the high character which has 
given it rank among the best "Music Schools" in the country. 

The Commencement exercises proper were held in Elliot's ALcad<3my of 
Music. The large hall was crowded to its utmost capacity, and many seeking 
admission were turned away for lack of room. The orations and essays of 
the Graduating Class were of a high order, evincing independence of thought 
and careful mental discipline on the part of those who produced them. 
Prizes were awarded for excellence in Latin, Algebra, Oratory, Essays, 
Reading, Elocution, Music and Painting. 

In the judgment of the Committee, this is an excellent School ; one where 
those who have children to educate may send them, assured that the chief

purpose of a Christian education will be realized. We most heartily recom- 
mend Williamsport Dickinson Seminary as worthy of a liberal patronage, 
and as meriting a loyal support by all tliose interested in higher culture under 
positively Christian influences.

FROM REPORT OF 1884. 

The Committees appointed by the patronizing Conferences of Dickinson 
Seminary, Williamsport, Pa., report that having witnessed the examinations 
-and Commencement exercises, they take pleasure in presenting the following 
commendation of the Institution and its work : 

The city of Williamsport is most favorably located, with pleasant and 
romantic mountain scenery on one side and a rich and highly cultivated rural 
district on the other. The vast lumber interests have brought unusual wealth 
to the population of twenty thousand. Much care and money have been 
expended upon the municipal regulations, public improvements and private 
residences, hence the city is beautiful, healthful and attractive, the people 
manifesting unusual intelligence, thrift, good order, and devotion to church 
buildings and religious services. The Seminary buildings are imposing and 
capacious, surrounded by a charming campus, and well adapted to school 
purposes. The course of study nearly approaches a college curriculum, and 
is thoroughly utilized. The Faculty, with Rev. E. J. Gray, D. D., at the 
head, is able, diligent and efficient. The examinations, essays and contests 
gave evidence of thorough teaching, patient drill and faithful study. The 
productions of art and rendering of music were especially fine. 

The Graduating Class of twenty-six young ladies and gentlemen acquitted 
themselves most commendably. They were pronounced unsurpassed in the 
history of the School. They are certainly well fitted to commence life's active 
and responsible mission. With such superior advantages and work, secured 
at such low rates, it is not surprising that Dickinson Seminary has been very 
full during the past year. / 

The religious oversight and influence, the refined social regulations, the 
manly and womanly deportment of the young lady and gentlemen students, 
and the general cheerful acquiescence in the wholesome discipline which is 
manifest in easy cheerfulness along the lines of perfect order, make a safe 
and desirable school in which to place our sons and daughters. 

We express our great satisfaction with the facilities and workings of the 
Seminary, and heartily recommend it to the most liberal patronage.

FROM REPORT OF 1885. 

The Committee appointed by the patronizing Conferences to visit Wil 
liamsport Dickinson Seminary at its recent Commencement, respectfully 
report the following: 

We have carefully and somewhat minutely inquired into the condition 
and practical working of all the departments of the School, and have sought 
to prepare a deliberate and unbiased judgment of its merits. Tlie Seminary 
is the property of tin; Preachers' Aid Society of the Central Pennsylvania 
Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church. It is a Boarding School of 
high grade for both sexes, afl'ording instruction in all branches, from primary 
.English through the most advanced studies taught in academic institutions. 
It ofi'ers to all terms lower than any other school of similar grade of which 
we have knowledge, while to ministers' children it makes large reductions. 
It is under the presidency of Rev. E. J. Gray, D. D., a gentleman of large 
attainments in scholarship and mature experience in teaching, with a history 
of unparalleled success in conducting and governing the School. The build- 
ings are large, well arranged, and well adapted for dormitories and educa- 
tional purposes. Ample and beautiful grounds surround them, affording 
space to all for pure air and healthful exercise. Appliances for heating, ven- 
tilation, baking, laundering, bathing and fire escapes are all that could be 
desired. Proverbial healthfulness prevails, notwithstanding the v-igorous 
prosecution of very advanced courses of study for wliich the Institution is 
noted. This is due not to the eligible location alone, but also to the clean 
and tasteful condition maintained by the management throughout and around 
the premises, the efliciency of the culinary service, and the facilities for 
physical exercise and muscular development of the students in the Gymna- 
sium. In all the courses of study the recitations, examinations and public 
exercises of the dilTerent classes evinced a thoroughness of preparation and 
training which all present regarded as truly surprising. The work of students 
in the Department of Natural Science, which is under the care of Professor 
Freley, especially in Geology and Botany, and the displays in Mathematics, 
presented for public inspection, were quite extensive and of exceptional 
merit. The Di])artment of Music exhibited its efiiciency in a pubMc prize 
contest, followed with an entertainment of rare excellence. Under Professor 
Vo'lkler, who is an acknowledged master of his art, the Seminary certainly 
furnishes training in instrumental and vocal music as liberal as can be 
obtained anywhere in the country. Scarcely less should be said of the Art 
Department. Specimens of rare skill and beauty, from the brushes of stu- 
dents, adorned the Chapel walls and demonstrated the attention given to this 
branch of ornamental education. Much credit is due to Mrs. J. L. Gassaway, 
the accomplished teacher, through whose ability and large experience such 
attainments have been realized and such opportunity afforded by the Semi- 
nary to students in Painting and Drawing. The science of Elocution also 
makes itself prominent in the exercises, commands respect and adds much 
to the completeness of appliances. 

Discii)line, industry and enthusiasm are manifestly everywhere prevalent. 
A home-like feeling, engendered by properly dire(;ted intermingling of the 
sexes, counteracts homesickness, cultivates manners and tastes, and stimu- 
lates emulation. Wholesome religious restraints and intluences are not 
wanting, and result in numerous conversions every year.

WILLIAMSrOKT DICKINSON SEMINARY. 



The Commencement exercises were held in the Academy of Music, before 
a vast and select audience. The Graduatinij^ Class comprised twenty-five 
young ladies and gentlemen, ten of whom were children of ministers. Both 
in preparation and delivery, the orations and essays were all highly creditable. 
Some of them were remarkable. Prizes were awarded for excellence in Ora- 
tory, Music, Elocution, Gymnastics, etc. Diplomas were awarded and degrees 
conferred by President Gray, and the exercises closed. Congratulations foL 
lowed on every hand. 

Intelligent and reliable citizens of the place, who for years have closely 
observed the workings of the School, assured us that its efficiency is now 
steadily and rapidly increasing, while i)arents of students, after years ot 
close and exacting insight, joined their children in unanimous and generous 
commendation. 

Api)ointed to acquire and express an intelligent opinion of the character 
and claims for patronage of this worthy institution of learning, the Committee 
feel that with the facts before them, they could not say less than the fore; 
going, or conclude without commending the School to all parents who have 
children to educate, and urging them, by personal visitation, to satisfy them- 
selves of its superior advantages.

FROM REPORT OF 1880. 

The Committees of the Philadelphia and Central Pennsylvania Conferences 
appointed to visit the Williamsport Dickinson Seminary report that, having 
visited and in(iuired into the management of the Institution, they are prepared 
to commend it most heartily. 

The well-known work which this Institution has been doing throughout 
the forty years of its existence renders it unnecessary to make more than a 
brief statement in regard to the Educational Department. During these years 
it has been sending out young men and young women to take their places in 
life and become a blessing in their day and generation, and many of the old 
students have risen to eminence in the departments of activity which they 
have chosen. That the former prosperity continues and increases is indicated 
by the fact that the Graduating Class of this year is the largest which ever 
went from the institution. 

The present character of the educational work was shown in the nature of 
the examinations. This year members of the Committee were present at a 
large number of the examinations, and they are unanimous in the judgment 
that they evinced careful instruction and thorough drill on the part of the 
teachers, and diligent study on the part of the pupils. 

There are eight courses of study under the direction of fourteen competeni 
professors, and at the head of the Faculty and of the Institution is the Rev. 
E. J. Gray, D. D., who has been in charge for twc'lve years, and each passimi; 
year more clearly demonstrates his admirable fitness for the position.

There are three Literary Societies connected with the Seminary, which 
supplement the work of the recitation rooms and giv(; increased opj)()rt unities 
for practice in writing, public speaking, and the conduct of deliberative 
bodies. There are also three Libraries, containing valuable collections of 
books and the nucleus of a special reference library has been formed. 

During the year just closed the facilities for Chemical Analysis have; b(;en 
increased, and material additions have been made in the de})artm('nts of 
Mineralogy and Geology. A large donation of marine animals has been 
received and arranged, which will greatly aid the instructor and the students 
in the de])artment of Natural Sc;ience. Among the improvements which will 
be made during the present summer is the introduction of steam-heat through- 
out the entire building. 

Among the many excellencies which might be mentioned, the Art Depart- 
ment stands out very conspicuously. The large and beautiful display of 
paintings and crayons on exhibition, the work of the students, gave proof 
that the Art Department is under competent management, and the quality 
of the work showed study, practice and decided artistic talent on the part of 
the pupils. 

It is with special gratification that we recognize the religious atmosphere 
which pervades the Seminary. A revival, resulting in the conversion of a 
large proportion of the students and the strengthening of the religious char- 
acter of others, is an annual occurrence. 

The hcalthfulness of the location, the character of the instruction, the 
careful oversight, and the very reasonable charge for board and tuition, make 
this Institution a very inviting school for many classes.

FROM REPORT OF 1887. 

The Committee appointed by the pativ)nizing Conferences to visit and 
report upon the work done in Williamsport Dickinson Seminary, make the 
following statement: 

I. physical CONDITIONS. 

The location is unsurpassed for beauty, health and easy access. The 
building is spacious, rooms large and well ventilated. During the past year 
steam heat has been introduced into every part of the building. It works so
