In order to meet the wants of a larger class of Students, eight regular 
Courses of Study are provided, namely: The Normal English, Belles 
Lettres, Science and Literature, Classical, College Preparatory, Art, Music, 
and Business. Students may adopt any of these Courses exclusively, 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 who desire thorough instruction and drill in the English 
branches. To those who complete this course, a Diploma expressing the 
scholarship attained will be given. 

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

The Course in Science and Literature is intended to give wider culture 
and more thorough mental discipline. It differs from the Classical Course 
mainly 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 compare favorably with the curriculum adopted by our 
best institutions of learning. We offer it with entire confidence 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 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 especially to parents who 
wish to place their sons under the watchful care of experienced teachers, 
while they receive the literary culture of a high grade institution of learning, 
and enjoy the social advantages of a well-regulated Christian home.

NORMAL MUSICAL COURSE. 

The growing love of Music has largely increased the demand for competent 
music teachers. To meet this demand this course is established. We present 
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 Square Pianos, with convenient access to a large and 
superior Pipe Organ. 

The Course will extend through one year, upon completing which the 
Student will be 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 equiva- 
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; (3) 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 weekly 
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, namely: 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.

Elocution is recognized as a most important branch of education. This 
department is under the supervision of a thoroughly qualified and experienced 
teacher, and will include a careful vocal drill, and practice in the entire range 
of expression. It will also embody such a variety of Recitations and Readings 
as may serve to exemplify the qualities and modulations of the voice, and will 
cover gesture and action. 

Six dollars per term of 12 weeks— 30 lessons. Private lessons, 50 cents 
each. 

BUSINESS DEPARTMENT. 

This Course is designed to give a thorough knowledge of the principles 
of business transactions. It may be pursued alone or in connection with 
other studies, thus accommodating those seeking a literary, as well as those 



j)

seeking only a business education. The lime rcciuired to linisli it will depend 
upon tlie proficiency of the pupil in the English branc^hes, and Ihe dilii!;(Miee 
with whicli he works. 



STUDIES. 

The Course will include instruction in the C'oninion Enij^lish brandies. 
Book Keeping — Single and Double Entry Business Corres])ondenc(;, Busi- 
ness Papers of various forms, (^ivil Government and Polilieal Economy. 

TUITION. 

Students may enter the regular classes witliout additional cost for tuition, 
except in Book-Keeping, for which #5.00 ]ier term of three months w^ill be 
charged. 

ADVANTAGES. 

This department oifers all the opportunities for general culture aH'orded 
"Students in other departments, assured by well conducted literary societies, 
lectures, large libraries, association witli experienced teachers, and tlie retin- 
ing influences of a Christian home. 

Board, Boom, Washing, etc., same as in other departments. 

ADMISSION. 

Students may enter this department at any time in the Academic year, a 
fair knowledge of tlie English branches being the only recpiisition. 



METHODS OF INSTKUCTION. 

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 l)ranches of study. The pupil 
is taught to study the text book by topics rather than by sentences or para- 
graphs, and encouraged in the lecture room to give the substance of what he 
lias learned, in his own language. In this manner, while he is adding to his 
store of knowledge, he is enlarging his vocabulary, and wlule he is evolving 
principles and acquiring facts, he is increasing his power of expression, and 
that unconsciously, it may be, but nevertheless surely, he lays the foundations 
of an easy and 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 to think and investigate for himself.

PORTY-FIttST ANNUAL CATALOQVE.

Ethics, Logics and Political Economy are taught in the Senior year. 
Text-books are used and daily recitations are required. Class incpuries 
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 furn] '.f practical knowledge as will tit him for the active duties of life. 

Tn all lin Im nirhr Mic text-l.M,k is uscd as a means to gain a knowledge of 
topics lallM f than \n 1m hiJi, (] as an end in itself, and as far as possible the 
Siuiit'iil i.-, ltd Lo ihi; ^iiul} ui ihe objccts themselves. No ])ains are spared to 
cnltivnte bfjbit^ f)f clear, nfrnrate and systematic thought and expression. 

Geology is taken during the first term of tin; Senior year. A practical 
knowledge of the common, rocks and minerals is acfjinred, and excursions 
are made to (piarries and regions which illustrate various geological forma- 
tions. During the past year the class made surveys of the Lower Hehh^rberg 
limestone ([uarries east of the city, the Chc^mung building-stone ([uarries 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 n^port 
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 tinc^ly gradcul relationship that (exists 
between the classes. Orton's text-book is used and as much laboratory work 
is introduced as is practicable. This year tln^ 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 ('ourse 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 tlie different 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 the 
class.

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 pursuit of other languages, as 
well as to afford the usual mental discipline. Careful attention is also 
given 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 
make explanations of the text in German. 

Besides the study of Classical German, Ahn-IIenn'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 sufficient knowledge of 
construction to form a sentence. 

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

In French, in addition to the thorough Grammar work of the first year, 
daily attention will be given to various conversational forms, using as a basis 
Etude Progressive de la Langue Frangaise. (Stern et Meras.) ^ 

During the second year some standard authors are read. The pupil is 
further grounded in the principles of the Grammar, and is made familiar 
with the most important rules used 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, La France (A. de 
lioagemont) is carefully studied. 

. MATHEMATICS. 

The Course in Mathematics is coextensive with that in the majority of our 
best colleges. Although the study is considered as chiefly 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 



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 
Coefficients 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. 

r^^.^.T'"' "' ^^""^^^^y covers seven books, embracing both the Plane 
and Sohd Geometry. The demonstrations are partly oral ami partly written 
the written exc^ises 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. . 

M.i^n'l 'Tn'^'P'"'^" Analytical Geometry, completing the Cartesian 
Method of Coordinates, the Method of Polar Coordinates, and the Trans- 
formation of CoM To Calculus two terms are given, covering, in the 
Differental Calculus, the Differentiation of Functions of a SinHe Varia]>le 
Maclaurin^ and Taylor's Theorems, together with the deduction ot' the 
Binomial Theorem and the Theory of Logarithms, the Evaluation of Inde- 
terminate Forms, and the Maxima and Minima of Functions of a Sinde 
Variable; and in the Integral Calculus, the Integration of all the Elementary 

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 ],uild by 
uture reading and investigation. To this end the text-book is thoroughh 
studied in connection with a Manual of Classical Antiquities and an Atlas 
while at the same time the Student is encouraged to consult other authoritie^ 
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

General Information. 



WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY 

Is an Institution of high grade, with ample facilities for giving young 
ladies and gentlemen a superior education. It is organized upon 
the plans which have been approved by long experience, and adopted 
by the best schools in this country, embracing all modern appliances 
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 prescribed Courses of Study. 

The Seminary is under the patronage of the Central Pennsylvania 
Conference, being owned and practically managed by the Preachers' 
Aid Society. As this investment was rather to promote the im- 
portant work of Higher Christian Education than to make money, 
the paramount purpose is to combine thorough instruction and 
careful moral training with the comforts of a good home, at the 
lowest possible rates. 

LOCATION. 

Williamsport is one of the most beautiful and healthful places 
in the State. It has never been subject to epidemics of any kind. 
Many coming to the school in poor health have returned fully 
restored. The city is situated on the West Branch of the Susque- 
hanna River, 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 appliances 
with which it is furnished. In small towns and villages the facilities 
for culture — intellectual as well as ix^sthetic 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. Thirty-one churches, 
an active temperance organization, and a branch of the Young Men's 
Christian Association, embracing many of the most earnest Christians

V 



in the community, with a large Hbrary free to all, and accessible at 
all times, indicate some of the relii^ious influences brouj^ht to bear 
upon the young in Williamsport 

BUILDINGS. 

The buildings occu[)y an eminence overlooking the city, and are 
surrounded by beautiful shade trees, while the grounds contain five 
acres, affording ample room for exercise and play. 'V\io,y are brick, 
lieated by steam, provided with tire escapes and supplied throughout 
with pure mountain water. 

The main edifice, recently rebuilt and improved, compares favora- 
bly with the best school buildings in the country, and the new 
Ch apel is the most attractive public hall in the city. 

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' ai)artments are entirely separate from the others, a?id 
there is no associatlo7i of the sexes bat 'm the jweseiice of their 
instructors. The happy influence, mutiially exerted, in their slight 
association in the recitation room, at the table, and in the public 
exercises in the Cha[)el, is to be seen in the cultivation of a cheerful 
and animated disposition, in the formation of good habits and man- 
ners, in ardent devotion to study, and in the attainment of high moral 
character. These, with niany 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 oversight 
of all the Stude7its. 

PHYSICAL HEALTH. 

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 
'ight, gymnastics, 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 fifty 
cents per terra will be charged. 



Lectures on health will also be given from time to time, by an 
eminent physician. 

ROOMS AND FURNITURE. 

The rooms are larger than in most boarding schools, the ladies' 
being 16x13 feet, and the gentlemen's 20x9^^ feet. They are all 
furnished with bedstead, mattress, table, chairs, ward-robe, wash- 
stand niid (>ro('k( rv the ladies' with bed-spring and dressing- 
bureau, a7id if desired, any room will be entirely furnished; but 
btudents nuiy ptovide their own sheets, (for double beds,) pillows, 
pillow cases, II in lots, counterpanes, carpets, mirrors and lamps, and 
thus lessen the expense.

charges for which are specifically stated elsewhere. 

We desire to emphasize this statement, because some schools, 
whose advertised rates are higher than ours, increase the expenses 
still more by numerous " extras." 

fi®"We ask those who are seeking education for themselves, and 
parents who contemplate sending their children to a boarding school, 
to carefully note the fact that we furnish everything embraced in a 
thoroughly equipped school, with all the comforts of a good home, 
including a large, airy, and completely furnished room, in a beautiful 
and healthful location, at the low rate of $216.33 per year, in courses 
of study which prepare the Student for business, for professional life, 
or for the lower or higher classes in college; or, if they prefer to 
furnish their own rooms with bed clothes, mirrors, lamp and carpet, 
for $203.33 in Classical Studies, and $195.33 in Common English. 

Persons applying for rooms will please state whether they wish 
them furnished entirely or in part.

A twelve-inch Joslin Globe. 

Hon. R. J. C. Walker and Hon. Henry C. McCorrnick have 
largely increased our facilities by valuable contributions to our 
Reference Library. 

MERIT AND DEMERIT. 

A daily record is kept of all the exercises of the School, ft tun 
which record the Students w lii be graded. A record <»! (h nu nis is 
also kept. Tardiness, unexcused absences from required exercises, 
and all disorderly conduct, will subject the Student tu demerit iiiarks. 
Ten such marks bring a private reproof before the Faculty ; twenty 
a public reprimand before the whole school, and thirty may send the 
offender away. Sessional reports are sent to parents. 

RELIGIOUS SERVICES. 

Every Student is required to attend religious services in the Chapel 
daily, as well as public worship morning and evening every Sabbath, 
at such place as parents or guardians may 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. 

LITERARY EXERCISES. 

In addition to class work, 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. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

There are three flourishing Literary Societies connected with the 
Seminary— the Belles Lettres, the Gamma 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 



y 



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

INSTRUCTION. 

Our methods are modern, and adapted to the need of the 
Students. No pains are spared to give thorough, practical and 
scholarly trmjiiTHr in all the departments by teachers of superior 
attainments .iml < xperierice. Besides instruction in connection with 
the loAl book, kolures lilubUaled by experiniciils are giveii from 
time to time. 

Students la Music have opportunity to hear distinguished artists, 
which is of great advantage in acquiring a correct taste, as also in 
enlarging their knowledge. In addition to frequent Organ Recitals 
by musicians of recognized ability, Sherwood and Mme. Kive-King 
gave concerts to which our Music pupils were admitted at reduced 
rates during the present year. 

OUTFIT. 

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 wearing apparel must he plahily marked with full name 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 
sickness. 

A WORD TO PARENTS. 

\. B®"Try to have your children here on the first day of the 
terra, but not before, as we shall not be ready to receive them. The 
classes are formed on the second dav, and it 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 spending 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.

2. Must attend all the Seminary exercises punctually.

■ MEANS OF ACCESS. 



The Philadel|)hia and Erie, the Northern Central, the Philadelphia 
and Heading, and the Fine Creek Railroads pass through the city, 
so that Williamsport is readily accessible from all quarters. 

Ji^"By special arrangements all these Railroads and also the 
Pennsylvania system and their branches issue excursion rates to 
cover the Winter vacation and Commencement Exercises. 

GKADUATES AND FORMEK STUDENTS. 

It may safely be estimated that from eight to ten thousand persons 
have received Academic instruction, covering from one to three years, 
in Williamsport Dickinson Seminary, while four hundred and eighty- 
six have completed the prescribed curriculum, graduating with the 
degrees the Institution confers. We desire to bring all these into 
active sympathy and co-operation with their Ahna 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 
19th, in the afternoon. If you cannot come, let us hear from you by 
letter. 

And now, may I not ask you to aid in enlarging the sphere and 
increasing the power of our Alma Ma.ter ? You can do' much in 
many ways, but you can at least direct those looking for a good 
Boarding 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.

Opinions of Patrons and Friends 



That tbe public may form an intelligent opinion of the estimation 
in which the Institution is held by those who have had oj^portuuity 
to judge of its management and practical woik, we publish some 
testimonials recently received from our friends and pa trims. 

Hughesville, Pa., April 20, 1889. 
Bev. E. J. Gray, J). 7/, Preddent Dickinson, Seminary: 

Dear Sir — Your invitation to the patrons of Dickinson to express their 
opinions covers so much detail that it will be diMicult to condense rpiite as 
much as is necessary. My opinions are formed from ratluM* fre([nent visits to 
Dickinson Seminary, from the experience of my daughter as one of your stu- 
dents and an acqnintance with some of your Faculty, gained by my visits, 
together with the opportunity of hearing the unn^strained (wpressions of stu- 
dents, and my conclusions arc as follows : The Seminary has a cheerful, at- 
tractive atmosphere about it, with an entire abs(!nc(5 of any appearance of 
physicial restraint. It is so* pleasantly warmed by 3^our steam heating system 
in cool weather that I have noticed, always, that it was very thoroughly 
ventilated and full of fresh, pure air. Having taken meals with the students 
quite a number of times, I have always enjoycMl the table servi(te aiul bill of 
fare; the homislike interco\n*se at the table I consider ([uite a desirable fea- 
ture. I have l)een fidly satisfied with the system of teaching which aims to 
have the students learn to understand what they are taught rather than to 
commit it to memory merely, so as to get through a recitation. The system 
of government that appeals to the honor and conscience of the pupils is cer- 
tainly preparing them for the decision of actual questions of life, better than 
any system of ph3^sical restraint could possibly do, and at the same time se- 
cures a very much higher tone in the school ; above all, the grand work that 
is done in leading the students *'up through nature to nature's God," so as to 
secure their conversion is, to my mind, your crowning success. 

I do not know of any institution making a better record for itself than 
Dickinson Seminary, and I hope it may secure such financial aid from time to 
time as shall enable it to very much increase its accommodations. 

Very truly yours, 

Benj. (jt. Welsh, 
General Manager of Williamspoi-t & North Branch K. K. Co. 

Cumberland, Md., May, 1889. 

My eldest daughter graduated from Williamspoit Dickinson Seminary in 
1880. From my knowledge of the school, I do not hesitate to reconmiend

It, as one of the best institutions in our church. As a home for young ladies 
both for its comforts and liealthfulness, I know of none superior. The 
discipline is all any one could ask, and the facilities for mental and moral 
culture are of a high order, suited to those seeking higher education The 
President, Rev. E. J. Gray, D. D., I have known intimately for many years 
and he has qualities which eminently fit him for the responsible position 
which he holds. 

Rkjiiard Nokris, 
Pastor of Centre Street M. E. Church, Baltimore Conference. 

Philipsburg, May, 1889. 
My judgment of .Williamsport Dickinson Seminary, based on knowledge 
derived from several years^ residence in close proximity to the institution, 
and also from two sons who have been students in the school, is, that for op- 
portunity for mental and moral culture for healtlifulness, for home comforts 
and especially for discipline, the Seminary is worthy my most earnest com- 
mendation. 

J- H- McGarrah. Pastor M. E. Church. 

Bloomsburg, May 7, 1889. 
I have watched for years, with pleasure, the steady growth and prosper- 
ity of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary under your excellent management. 
I have been impressed with its kind, but firm discipline, the great opportuni- 
ties for intellectual and moral improvement and the delightful home feeling 
and influence that seem to unite the Faculty and students, and pervade the 
entire institution. I regard it as one of the best schools of the kind in the 
country, and in every way worthy of the confidence and patronage of the 
Christian public. This knowledge I obtained from personal observation as a 
resident pastor among the Faculty and students. 

John Donah he, 
P. E. Danville District, Central Pa. Conference, 

Harrisburg, Pa., May S, 1889. 
Three of my children have attended Dickinson Seminary for a period aggre 
gating between six and seven years. As regards everything that goeT to 
make up a first-class school of the kind, I doubt if it is surpassed by any 
school in the country, and there are very few its equal. I can heartily recom- ' 
mend it to parents and others having children to educate. 

B. F. Stevens, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Canton, Pa., May 6, 1889. 
I take great pleasure in bearing testimony to the high moral tone, and 
good discipline of Dickinson Seminarv. 

I am convinced that the degree of advancement is fully etjual to the 
standard in other schools of equal grade. 

My information is obtained from general observation, and from having a 
daughter in attendance for over a year just closed. 

C^EOROE A. Guernsey, Bank Cashier. 



( 






Blossburg, Pa., May 8, 1889. 
My daughter has been a student in Williamsport Dickinson Seminary for 
the past two years, and noting her progress, as well as from personal obser- 
vation, I am satisfied that the Seminary is to be highly commended for its 
moral and home-like atmosphere, and its high standards of intellectual 
culture. B. F. Traoy, 

Pastor M. E. C, Central N. Y. Conference. 

Greenville, May 3, 1889. 
I take pleasure in saying that, from personal observation during the week 
I spent in Williamsport, and from information gathered from my daughters 
and others, I think the Williamsport Dickinson Seminary an excellent school. 
You have attained a very high gradc^ in the ♦wo essentials of advanced edu 
cation, a careful discipline and thorough work. 

H. E. Johnson, 
Pastor M. E. Church, Pitts])urg Conference. 

Howard, Pa., May 2, 1889. 

I can heartily recommend Dickinson Seminary to any yoimg person desir 
ing a higher education. 

My knowledge of the character of the work done at your school is per- 
sonal, having spent four school years there as a student. The method of in- 
struction adopted by the President is, in my judgment, the best. 

The best feature is, this institution is an ali round educator, physical, 
mental and moral; and all receive due attention. 

Gii:oRGE E. King, 
Class '7G, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Greenland, W. Va., April 30, 1889. 
^ Having at one time been a student of Dickinson Seminary, recently a 
visitor,. also a patron, it seems to me that the home-like arrangements of the 
buildings and mangement, being so much after the order of a^ family, makes 
this institution one to be highly prized by its patrons. We think also its 
Faculty will compare favorable with any other school of like grade, and the 
students become greatly attached to the place. 

John L. Barh, Farmer. 

Selinsgrove, Pa., May 10, 1889. 
It affords me great pleasure to bear testimony to the high character and 
thorough work of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary. Having been a stu- 
dent in the institution, I am enabled to speak from personal knowl- 
edge. The school embodies all the essential features of a Christian home. 
Its location and sanitary equipments insure its liealthfulness, while its facili- 
ties for mental and moral culture are of such character as to secure to stu- 
dents the largest and best results. Parents need not hesitate to commit their 
children to its wholesome and stimulating discipline.

• Stewartstown, Pa., May 2, 1889. 

, Having had two daughters graduated at the Williamsport Dickinson 
Seminary, I think I can speak understandingly in regards to the merits of 
the school. I can, therefore, conscientiously recommend it to those who may 
he seeking an education, or those who may have children to educate, as an 
institution where every effort is made, and generally successful, to develop 
the physical, mental and moral nature of its pupils- 

A. B. HoovEN, Pastor M. E. Church.

It affords me pleasure to bear testimony to tlie home comforts, dicipline, 
healthfulness and facilities for mental and moral culture affnrrlful })v Wil- 
liamsport Dickinson Seminary. My knowledge is positive, my daughter 
havins: been a student in the school for three years, and my wife having 
been to see the institution herself. I c an hearti ly recommend the school to 

others.

Harveyville, Pa., May 14, 1889. 

Having had two sons educated at this school, I would earnestly recom- 
mend Williamsport Dickinson Seminary to parents having children to edu- 
cate, or any others desirous of a thorough education, because of its facilities 
for mental and moral culture, and for its home comforts and healthfulness. 

A. N. Hakvey, Merchant. 

Gettysburg, Pa., May 1, 1889. 

The one feature which impressed me most while taking the course at 
Dickinson Seminary, and of which I have thought most frequently since, 
is the good jfractical senne, shown in many ways, that pervades the instruc- 
tion, discipline and social intercourse. I am more and more grateful for 
w^hat that did for me. 

J. R. DuNKERLKY, Class '78, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Petersburg, Pa., April 30, 1889. 

A student experience of more than three years at Dickinson Seminary 
compels me to think highly of her, my Alrna Mater, An Aluminus of the 
Seminary, afterwards graduated from one of our oldest and best colleges, said 
to the writer that he would not exchange the mental discipline gained 
through class-room drill at the Seminary for all he afterwards got at col- 
lege. My wife (an ^^t/m^'/i^) says: *' The religious influences of the Semi 
nary were excellent." My own appreciation of the all-around advantages of 
the Seminary is manifest in the fact that when looking out for a school for 
an only and much loved sister, I chose Dickinson Seminary. 

May your excellent school ever be crowded with excellent young people. 

C. V. Hartzkll, Class '79, Pastor M. E. Church. 



Danville, May, 1889. 

I most heartily endorse the Seminary all the way through. Three years 
drill there has lielped me to do work I could not have done without it.

Berwick, Pa., May, 1889. 

I very cordially commend Williamsport Dickinson Seminary as an insti 
tution of learning. My knowledge, of the Seminary is personal, being an 
Alumnus of the institution. 

1 believe its facilities for mental and moral culture to be unsurpassed by 
any school of like grade in this country. 

Benj. H. Mosser, Class '77, Pastor M. E. Church.

Darlington, Hareford Co., Md., May 14, 1889. 

My son attended the Dickinson Seminary. I consider the location healthy, 
accommodations good, discipline kindly and conscientious, and I know of 
no school that stands higher for mental and moral culture. 

D. E. Thomas, Farmer 

Northumberland, Pa., May 7, 1889. 

I was a student in Dickinson Seminary from 1877 to 1880. The thorough 
instruction and culture I received have been the great helps in my work, and 
not less important, the school was a good home. The religious influence 
was of the highest character. In the revival of 1879 thirty students were 
converted, being all the unconverted boarding students but four. Since en- 
tering upon my life work I have had abundant opportunity for observing 
the work of the school. The religious and home influences continue, and 
the etflciency of the school in all departments is rapidly increasing. 

J. D. W. Deayor, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Chambersburg, Pa., May 1, 1889. 

During a three years residence in the beautiful city of Williamsport, Pa., 
as pastor of Grace Methodist Episcopal church, and as such a member of 
the Board of Managers of the Preachers' Aid Society, and also of the Con 
ference Visiting Committee, it was my privilege often to visit Williamsport 
Dickinson Seminary. As my knowledge of the institution increased, relative 
to its location, healthfulness, equipment, discipline, morals, and the excel- 
lence and thoroughness of the work done in it, my regard and admiration 
increased. 

I have no hesitancy in pronouncing it one of the very best institutions in 
the State, and cordially commend it to all seeking for their young people the 
advantages of a first-class Seminary, as admirably adapted to secure the 
fullest realization of tkier hopes. 

R. H. GiLBFRT, Pastor M. E. Church.

Emmittsburg, Md., May 10, 1889. 

I have been a patron of Dickinson Seminary for the past three years, and 
the knowledge I have obtained by visits to the Seminary and from my 
daughter, I cheerfully recommend this Seminary to those seeking a school. 
The buildings are ample and contain all the modern improvements for the 
comfort of pupils — in reality it is a home — accessible by rail from all points.

James W. Tkoxell, Farmer, Formerly Teacher. 

Jersey Shore, Pa., May 6, 1889. 
I have been a student in Williamsport Dickinson Seminary. The discipline 
IS good, moral and reliLnous atmosphere of the very best. Instruction 
thorough- being practical rather than theoretical. The recent improvements

I was a student at the Seminary four years-Class '82 -and for home-like 
surroundings, facilities for mental and moral training, healthfulness and kind 
parental discipline, it is not surpassed by any school (»f its class, and 
equaled hy few. 1 recommend the Seminary to any and all parents seeking 
a school where children can get the most good ami the least harm. 

Yours truly, 

K. S. Taylok, Pastor M. E. Church. 

New Cumberland, Pa., May 24, 1889. 
My daughter having graduated at Dickinson Seminary has given me oppor 
tunity to know its worth. For home-like comforts, healthfidness, and dis- 
cipline, as well as for moral and mental culture, I would cheerfully recom- 
mend the institution to all seeking higher education. 

li. M. Kline, Merchant. 

Altoona, Pa., May 28, 1889. 

It gives me pleasure to recommend Diekinson Seminary as a school of 

high moral and religious character. My son being a student in the Seminary 

during the past year has led me lo be a close observer. The discipline of the 

school and the situation of the buildings make it a desirable and inviting 

educational home. t.wi.'i.x, \t.^ a

Fairfield, Pa., May, 1889. 
Having spent three years and a half in Dickinson Seminary after I was 
twenty-two years of age, lam ready to say that as a school for mental and 
moral culture and helpful discipline, impartially administered, I think there 
are tew equals and none superior to the Seminary in the country. 

S. D. Wilson, '83, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Hoytville, Pa., May 23, 1889. 
Having spent three years at W^illiamsport Dickinson Seminary, under the 
present administration, I can heartily recommend the institution to any one 
seeking a higher education. Superior intellectual advantages are offered. 
Thepersonal interest manifested in the students is a commendable feature The 
discipline IS firm, yet mild and parental ; in short, the Seminary is a Christian 
home, where every interest of the student is delightfully guarded My ex 



perience has been that the moral atmosphere pervading the school is 
more conducive to a healthy religious growth than the influences character- 
izing the majority of our institutions of learning. 

O. G. Heck, Class '84, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Claysburg, Pa., May G, 1889. 
I can very readily commend the Dickinson Seminary, Williamsport, Pa., 
to persons wishing to educate their children. Three of our children (son and 
two daughters) have attended this institution, and during their attendance I 
was a frequent visitor and was favorably impressed with the management, 
its healthful location, discipline and low cost of tuition, &c., in cemparison 
with other schools of same grade. 

John G. McGkaw, 
Superintendent and Real Estate Agent. 

Salladasburg, May, 1889. 
Having spent nearly two years in Dickinson Seminary, under the present 
management, I have no hesitancy in recommending it as a first-class school. 
The location is admirable, the influence over the students is good, the facilities 
for mental and moral culture are excellent. If I had children to go to any 
school they would certainly go to the Seminary at Williamsport. 

Alex. Lambekson, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Reading, Pa., May 24, 1889. 

Having visited the Seminary during a three year's course of my daughter, 
thus coming in contact with the Faculty and the outlined discipline of the 
school, one of the many good features that impressed me most forcibly was 
the religious influence that pervaded the entire school and the home-like 
association between Faculty and students. 

I can commend it to those seeking a place for co education. 

W. H. SniOK, Stove Manufacturer. 

Driftwood, Pa., May 25, 1889. 
I take pleasure in stating from my observation and knowledge of your 
school, having had three children in attendance, that I believe the location and 
general surroundings of your school to be the most healthful of any similar 
institution in Pennsylvania. I admire your discipline and cordially approve 
of your method of instruction ; believing your school the most home-like to 
the pupil of any in the State. 

G. W. Huntley. 

Penfield, May 8, 1889. 
I have been a student of Dickinson Seminary. For three years I made 
that my home, and found it to embrace all the advantages pertaining to my 
social, intellectual and moral improvement. 

L. M. Brady, 
Class '84, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Airville, York Co., Pa., May 22, 1889. 
I was a student in Williamsport Dickinson Seminary three years, com" 
pleting the classical course in 1862. My eldest daughter graduated there in

WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINAR Y. 



1887. A son and daughter are now there attending school. Of course I have 
some knowledge of the school. It certainly has done excellent work all 
along, and seems to be doing still better as the years go on. The buildings 
are pleasant and comfortable, and good health generally prevails in the in- 
stitution. I regard it an excellent school for mental and moral culture. 

S. A. Ckeveling, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Aberdeen, Harford County, Md., May 29, 1889. 
It is a pleasure to give cordial con^mendation to your school, especially as 
relating to discipline, healtlifulness and facilities for mental improvement. 
My brother and sister were in your care. 

Very sincerely yours, 

llENjiY C. Smith, of Baltimore Conference. 

Williamsport, May 27, 1889. 
- — I finished my preparation for college at William])ort Dickinson Seminary. 
I learned jnore at the Seminary in one year than I had at other schools in 
two. I consider it to be one of the very best institutions of learning of its 
grade in the State. Its moral and reHgious inlluences are of the best. 

T. M. B. lIiOKS, Lawyer. 

Williamsport, Pa., May 28, 1889. 
From frequent observation and intercourse with the students I am led to 
believe the school to be in good condition, and under Dr. Gray and his i)resent 
Faculty (o be doing as good work as any school of its grade in the country. 
It certainly is well furnished with teachers and all other facilities, and ought 
to commend itself to all our people. 

M. L. Ganoe, 
Pastor Mulberry Street M. E. Church. 

Washingtonville, Pa., May 29, 1889. 
I am an Alumnus of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary. Regard it as a 
very careful institution ; careful to provide facilitie^s for mental and moral 
improvement; careful in looking after the character of its young men and 
women. J. H. Moktimer, Pastor M. E. Church. 

Espy, Pa., May 31, 1889. 
I have been a patron and close observer of Williamsport Dickinson Semi- 
nary for two years, and am satisfied that it is a school of superior advantages, 
possessing healtlifulness and home-like comforts, while its facilities for mental 
and moral culture, including music and painting, are excellent. I believe it 
is the constant aim and faithful endeavor of the President and Faculty to secure 
the very best results for all the students. The government and discipline 
meet with my hearty approval. 

K. Mallalieu, Pastor of M. E. Church.
