Courses of Study.

■T} 



Tn order to meet the wants of a larger class of Students, nine regular Courses 
of Study are provided, namely: The Normal English, Belles Lettres, Science and 
Literature, Classical, Practical Science, College Preparatory, Art, Music and Busi- 
ness. 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 gentle- 
men who desire thorough instruction and drill in the English branches. 

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 tlioroughly 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 Practical Science Course covers the required preparation for admission to 
schools of Technology and to Industrial Courses in our best Universities and 
Colleges. However, it is specially arranged to meet the increasing demand for 
scientific and literary instruction by those who contemplate an Academic training. 
As a preparation for assured success in industrial occupations we heartily com- 
mend it. 

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 children 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.

if 



ELOCUTION. 

Elocution is recognized as a most important branch of education. This de- 
partment 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, in classes— 3G 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 seeking only a 
business education. The time required to finish it will depend upon the pro- 
ficiency of the pupil in the English branches, and the diligence with which he 

works. 

STUDIES. 

The Course will include instruction in the Common English branches, Book- 
keeping—Single and Double Entry— Business Correspondence, Business Papers 
of various forms, Civil Government and Political Economy. 






METHODS OF INSTRUCTION. 

The instruction in the Primary Department is based on the inductive and 
objective methods, classes having objects presented which are studied analytically. 
Julia McNair Wright's Nature Readers have been introduced, where life is seen 
in its natural development. Practical application of the ''natural method" and 
the facts obtained from the Readers is made in conversational lessons. The lan- 
guage lessons embrace Memory Lessons, Dictation Exercises, Stories read for 
Reproduction, Exercises in Letter Writing, Word Pictures and Composition 
Writing. Especial attention is given to Arithmetic and the analysis of problems. 
History and Geography are taught with the aid of maps, books of reference and 
the best text-books. Information Lessons, or elementary science studies in Natural 
History, teach the classes to observe and to make careful note of the objects of 
the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms. The method of study consists chiefly 
in examination of leaves, rocks and insects. The Prang Course of Form Study 
and Drawing, including a series of exercises with suitable methods is studied. 
During the present year instruction in a systematic course of Voice Culture has 
been given to the pupils of this department by the teacher of Vocal Music. 

In Elementary Arithmetic, Grammar and Geography, the catechetical method 
is largely employed, but in Higher English tiie same course is adopted which 
prevails in the more advanced branches of study. The pupil is taught to study 
the text-book by topics rather than by sentences or paragraphs, and encouraged 
in the lecture room to give the substance of wh.at 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 concise style of com- 
position.

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 terras 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. 

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 
loiowledge of the common rocks and minerals is acquired, and excursions are 
made to quarries and regions which illustrate various geological formations. 
During the past year the class made surveys of the Lower Helderberg limestone 
quarries east of this 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 character- 
istic specimens and fossils, and constructed of these specimens, dressed down and 
mounted in plaster of paris, a model representing an ideal arrangement of the 
seven different geological formations, fossil-bearing, admirably presented to view 
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 com- 
parative 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 clam, lobster, bee, fish, frog and a 
cat, observing closely the physiology of the circulation and respiration in the last 
subject, and dissecting an alcoholic specimen of the brain. 

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 different branches is held strongly before the mind, and prac- 
tical questions, drawn from every -day life, are constantly brought forward to teach 
the Student to apply the principles learned in the text-book. The subject of 
Electricity is presented by a series of experiments and lectures, on which full 
notes are made by each Student.

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

Chemistry alternates with Geology in first and second terms and occupies 
the second and third terms of the Senior year. During the Spring term there is 
also elective work in Analytical Chemistry. The chemical laboratory has been 
fitted up this year and is fully equipped with apparatus and chemicals for ad- 
vanced technical work. The room is furnished with individual tables, each sup- 
plied with gas, Bunsen's burner, ring stand, water, case with full set of reagents, 
and all necessary apparatus for illustrative experiment and qualitative analysis. 
There is also a complete set of apparatus for volumetric and gravimetric analysis 
and assaying. In the regular work Shepherd's Chemistry is used. Each Student 
keeping full notes on the experiments which are performed individually, becomes 
thoroughly familiar with chemicals and manipulations. In the Spring term 
mineralogy is taken up in the laboratory work, and the latter part of the term is 
devoted to the general principles of Organic Chemistry. In the analytical work 
Fenton and Fleischer are used as reference books. Qualitative analyses of alloys 
and commercial articles are made, after which quantitative analysis, both volu- 
metric and gravimetric, is taken up. Estimation of ores by these processes and 
by assaying, and analyses of milk, sugars, and mineral waters are made. 

During the last year a dark-room has been built and furnished with a com- 
plete photographic outfit and the advanced scientific students are given an oppor- 
tunity to acquire a practical knowledge of the art of photography. 

Lectures on subjects of interest to the department are given from time to time 
illustrated by stereoscopic views projected by a new oxy-hydrogen light. 

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 illustra- 
tion 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 aflfbrd the usual 
mental discipline. Careful attention is also given to those preparing for college 
or for professional study. 

MODERN LANGUAGES. 

During first year in German, classes complete Otis' Elementary Grammar, 
(edition of 1890), as far as the subject of Syntax, with study of Irregular Verbs, 
committing to memory all conversations, i)roverbs and selections. Exercises are 
prepared in German script with careful attention to the idiom of the language. 
Stern's Studien 'und Plaudereien is used as the basis of conversation lessons and, 
during spring, one of the works mentioned under list of text-books is read. In 
second year Syntax of Otis' Grammar is completed with frequent dictation exer- 
cises. Schrakamp's Erzahlungen aus der Deutschen Geschichte is studied, much 
of text being memorized. Several standard novellettes are used for acquiring 
facility in sight reading. The spring term is given to a study of Schiller's Works.

WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY. 



During first year in French, classes complete Keetels' Grammar through sub- 
ject of Irregular Verbs, careful attention being given, in the preparation of all 
exercises, to the idiom of the language. Sauveur's Causeries avec mes Eleves is 
used as basis for conversational forms, many short extracts being committed to 
memory. During Spring Term some work mentioned under textbooks is read 
with a study of first six of La Fontaine's Fables. In second year Grammar work 
is completed and Kougemont's La France is studied, together with some French 
classic and historical work. 

Literature exercises and historical work are given frequently in both languages 
througliout the course with object, history, and geography lessons based upon the 
best of charts and maps. Standard selections are frequently memorized, and a 
study of synonyms is also made. 



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 com- 
mencement 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 Kadicals, and 
continued through Quadratics, Proportions, Permutations and Combinations, Pro- 
gressions, 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 instruction 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 Geometry 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 sur- 
veys made are drawn, and, together with the computations, are submitted to the 
teacher for inspection. 

One term is spent in Analytical Geometry, completing the Cartesian Method 
of Co-ordinates, the Method of Polar Co-ordinates, and the Transformation of 
Co-ordinates. To Calculus two terms are given, covering, in the Diflferential 
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 Indeterminate 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 read- 
ing nnd investigation. 'I'o this end the text-borsk 5^ t huruughly siudiud in con-

Special attentiuu is given to instruction in i;hetoric, 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.

We shall not be ready to receive students before the first day 
of the term. On the second day classes are formed, a term 
schedule for recitations adopted, and lessons assigned. 

Students from other schools may enter any class on passing a 
satisfactory examination in the previous studies of the Course, or 
their equivalents. The examination may be waived if the Faculty 
are otherwise assured that it is unnecessary. 

Invitations to visit any member of the school may be given 
only with the approval of the President. 

Visitors will not be allowed on the halls nor in the rooms of 
students without permission. 

Students who are back in more than three studies in any year 
will not rank with the class of that year unless they have com- 
pleted equivalent advanced studies. 

German, covering three years, may be substituted for Greek in 
the College Preparatory Course. 

The Junior and Senior Classes study Etymology during the 
Fall Term. 

The language ''elected" in the Course in Science and Litera- 
ture will be retained throughout the required two years. 

The ladies are allowed to substitute a Course in Music, Drawing 
and Painting, German or French, for the Greek Language, and 
for Analytical Geometry and Calculus. 

The gentlemen may substitute two years in Greek or German 
for Analytical Geometry and Calculus. 

The election or substitution of German, French, Music or 
Drawing and Painting does not remit the regular tuition for these 
branches. 

Orthography, Etymology, Reading, Composition and Decla- 
mation are required of all students except those exclusively in 
Music, Art, and Elocution. 

The classes in Trigonometry and Surveying are given such 
field drill as will familiarize them with practical surveying. 

— In the departments of Ancient and Modern Languages the 
classes are practiced in oral and written exercises throughout the 
Course. 

Lectures will be given from time to time in the various depart- 
ments.

WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY 

Is an institution of high grade, with ample facilities for giving 
young ladies and gendemen 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^vas 
founded in 1848, and is regularly chartered by the Legislature of 
the State of Pennsylvania, and authorized to confer degrees upon 
those who complete the prescribed Courses of Study. ^ 

The Seminary is under the patronage of the Central Pennsyl- 
vania Conference, being owned and practically managed by the 
Preachers' Aid Society. As this investment was rather to pro- 
mote the important work of higher Christian education than to 
make money, the paramount purpose is to combine thorough 
mstruction 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 Sus- 
quehanna 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 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 opportu- 
nities affords. Thirty-six churches, an active temperance organi- 
zation, and a branch of the Young Men's Christian Association 
embracing many of the most earnest Christians in the community'

t 



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. 

BUILDINGS. 

The buildings occupy an eminence overlooking the city, and 
are surrounded by beautiful shade trees, while the grounds contaui 
five acres, affording ample room for exercise and play. Tliey 
are brick, heated by steam, provided with fire escapes and supplied 
throughout with pure mountain water. 

— The buildings are lighted throughout with electrical incandes- 
cent light. The system adopted embodies the latest improvements 
in generating and utilizing electricity for illuminating purposes 
and insures entire safety from fire or shock, so that the wires may 
be handled without danger. The value of an illuminant which, 
consuming no oxygen, leaves the air perfectly pure and at the 
same time furnishes abundant light, cannot be over-estimated. 

The main edifice, recently rebuilt and improved, compares 
favorably with the best school buildings in the country, and the 
new Chapel 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' apartments are entirely separate from the others, 
and there is no association of the sexes but in the presence 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 cheer- 
ful and animated disposition, in the formation of good habits and 
manners, in ardent devotion to study, and in the attainment of 
high moral character. These, with many other valuable results, 
have established the fact that the best plan for a school is, accord- 
ing 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 buildings eat at the same tables, 
and have constant oversight of all the Students.

PHYSICAL HEALTH. 

The value of physical culture is recognized. A large Campus 
with very fine ball grounds for the gentlemen and lawn tennis 
court for the ladies furnishes stimulus and opportunity for outdoor 
athletic sports. 

A gymnasium, forty by sixty feet, supplied with the best modern 
appliances for physical culture, is maintained for the use of the 
students, under propyl regulations, for which fifty cents per term 
is charged. All young men, not physically incapacitated, are 
required to take systematic exercise in the gymnasium or military 
drill from two to three hours per week. Those selecting the 
former will furnish an appropriate gymnasium suit, including shoes. 

Suitable exercise is provided for the ladies in calisthenics and 
light gymnastics, under the direction of a competent teacher. 
All the ladies are required to participate in these exercises, unless 
excused upon a physician's certificate. 

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

MILITARY DEPARTMENT. 

The students selecting military drill are organized into a Bat- 
talion of two or more Companies, called Dickinson Seminary 
Corps of Cadets. 

The officers are appointed by the Faculty, all appointments 
being made on examination and general proficiency. 

The Cadets are exercised and instructed during the year in the 
Infantry Tactics of the U. S. Army, comprising the School of the 
Soldier, the School of the Company and School of the Battalion ; 
and in all ceremonies, forms of parade, reviews and honors to be 
paid by troops. All Cadets are required to furnish white helmet 
and white gloves, which may be procured at actual cost through 
the Quartermaster. These will be worn on all drills, parades, &c. 
The rank of Cadet officers and non-commissioned officers is des- 
ignated by insignia of West Point pattern. A new stand of arms 
and new accoutrements have been purchased this year and a new 
case built in the gymnasium for their safe keeping and preserva- 
tion. During pleasant weather in the Fall and Spring Terms the

battalion is drilled on the Campus; at other times the gymnasium 
is used as a drill hall. 

It is conceded that military drill furnishes one of the most 
valuable means of exercise and at the same time cultivates a ten- 
dency to an erect carriage, and teaches habits of neatness, 
punctuality, obedience, self-control and respect for others. 

The attention of parents and guardians is called to the import- 
ance and value of this Department. While its first object is to 
instruct the student in the fundamental principles of Military Art, 
it also gives a mental and physical training which should strongly 
recommend its advantages to those responsible for the education 
of young men. 

This Department was ofificered as follows during the school 
year of 1891-92 :

Second Lieutenant, J. I. Winger. First Sergeant, G. G. Johnston. 

ROOMS AND FURNITURE. 

The rooms are larger than in most boarding schools, the ladies' 
being i6x 13 feet, and the gentlemen's 20x93^ f^et. They are 
all furnished with bedstead, mattress, table, chairs, ward-robe, 
wash-stand and crockery ; the ladies' with bed-springs and dress- 
ing-bureau, andif desired, diwy room will be entirely furnished; 
but Students may provide their own sheets (for double beds), 
pillows, pillow cases, blankets, counterpanes, carpets and mirrors, 
and thus lessen the expense.

ADMISSION. 

Pupils of good moral character will be received at any time, 
for a single term or longer period. 

Must arrange bills with the Treasurer before attending recita- 
tions. 

Must take at least four studies, unless excused by the Faculty. 

Must register name and church, and agree to comply with all 
rules and reguiaiions of the School. 

Each Student will be considered a member of the Institution 
until due notice shall have been given of intention to leave and 
permission obtained of tlie President. 

BOARDING. 

This department is under the general direction of the Presi- 
dent, but an experienced Steward and a thoroughly competent 
Matron have immediate charge. The department commends 
itself by cleanliness, abundance of supply, excellence of quality, 
good cooking, and adaptation to health. 

DISCIPLINE. 

The discipline is firm, but mild and impartial. While every 
encouragement will be given to the orderly and studious, and due 
allowance be made for youthful indiscretion, yet the lawless and 
refractory cannot long remain among us. 

APPARATUS. 

The Scientific Department is furnished with very complete 
outfits of Physical and Chemical Apparatus. The Museum con- 
tains a large number of rare and valuable specimens, including a 
fine collection of Minerals and Zoological and Physiological 
specimens. Among recent additions are the followino- • 
/« ^/le Museum — 

Alcoholic specimens of the Human Heart, Brain, Stomach, 
Kidneys and Intestines. 

Bock Steger Models of Ear, Eye.Larynx, Lungs, Head and Brain. 

A series of Drill Cores, a collection of different Woods in the 
form of blocks, showing bark, grain and finished surface, and a 
collection of Polished Granite specimens.

tral Pennsylvania Conference, have made valuable contributions to 
our Reference Library. 

POST-GRADUATE WORK. 

We are prepared to do post-graduate work in Modern Lan- 
guages, Music, Art, Chemistry and Physics. 

MERIT AND DEMERIT. 

A daily record is kept of all the exercises of the School, from 
which record the Students will be graded. A record of demerits 
is also kept. Tardiness, unexcused absences from required exer- 
cises, and all disorderly conduct, will subject the Student to demerit 
marks. Such marks bring a private reproof before the Faculty, 
a public reprimand before the whole school, and may send the 
offender away. Sessional reports are sent to parents. 

RELIGIOUS CHARACTER. 

Dickinson Seminary is not sectarian in any sense, but it is 
positively and emphatically Christian in its administration and 
work. By combining practical Christian teaching with thorough 
intellectual training, under the personal supervision of Christian 
men and women, especially qualified by education and experience, 
the School has established a reputation among literary institutions 
and won the confidence of the public in a degree of which its 
friends and patrons may be justly proud.

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 7nay desig- 
nate, the President assenting. 

A Bible reading, conducted by the President, will be substi- 
tuted for the evening service once a month or oftener, as may be 
deemed proper. 

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. 

RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS. 

A Young Woman's Foreign Missionary Society has been in 
successful operation for several years. This society acquires and 
diffuses missionary intelligence, creates and maintains an interest 
in the work of the General Society and prepares its members for 
efficient service as centers of Christian influence at their homes 
when school days are ended. It has largely contributed to the 
education of a missionary for India. 

CANDIDATES FOR THE MINISTRY. 

A preacher who can, when necessary, conduct the singing in a 
prayer meeting and in a revival service acquires a power for good 
which cannot otherwise be attained. Indeed the usefulness of a 
preacher is largely augmented by a knowledge of music and 
ability to sing. Recognizing this fact, we have arranged to give 
weekly lessons in singing and careful instruction in voice culture 
to all young men who are preparing to preach, at the nominal 
cost of one dollar per term. This provision also inckides young 
women who are preparing for either home or foreign missionary 
work.

STUDENTS OF LIMITED MEANS. 

We have organized a system by which a Hmited number of 
Students may earn a part of the cost of education. 

We now give Hght employment, not appreciably interfering 
with study, to seventeen young men and three young women, 
paying from fifteen to thirty per cent, of bills. Applicants for 
these positions are enrolled and vacancies are fiUeu m the order of 
application, preference being given to those in the School. Ap- 
plicants must be recommended by their pastor, or some responsi- 
ble person, as worthy of help. No one will be retained who is 
not earnest in his studies and faithful to all required duties. 

LITERARY EXERCISES. 

In addition to class work, public exercises are held in the Semi- 
nary 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 connection with other literary exercises, thus fur- 
nishing inspiration to intellectual culture, as well as entertainment 
for the Students and the public. 

HOME FEATURES. 

The Seminary is a boarding school of the highest grade, taking 
rank among the very best, with superior appointments and appli- 
ances for the health and culture of its Students. It is also a well- 
ordered home. First of all, the President and his family reside in 
the building, forming a part of the school and are always accessi- 
ble to all its members. The wife of the President entertains the 
Young Woman's Missionary Society once a month, in her apart- 
ments, and occasionally receives the entire school in her parlors, 



1*^^-V 




while in times of sickness she visits the young ladies in their 
rooms, giving such suggestions and directions as the experience 
of a mother may supply. Again, the members of the Faculty 
are so distributed throughout the building as to be readily acces- 
sible at any time for such help as the Students may desire outside 
of the recitation room. Again, recognizing the value of social 
culture as a factor in preparation for a useful life, the President 
and Faculty give a formal reception once each term to the whole 
school in the beautiful Chapel, which for the occasion is trans- 
formed into an attractive drawing room, while weekly informal 
"socials," continuing from thirty minutes to an hour, after the 
public Friday evening entertainments, relieve the monotony of 
routine work, cultivate a cheerful spirit and meet the natural 
desire for social pleasures. In these and all practicable ways an 
appeal is made to the higher elements in the nature; mutual inter- 
est inspires mutual respect; opportunity is afforded to study 
character, and the school becomes a pleasant and safe Christian 
home, as well as a place for careful mental and moral training. 

INSTRUCTION. 

Our methods are modern, and adapted to the need of the 
Students. No pains are spared to give thorough, practical and 
scholarly training in all the departments by teachers of superior 
attainments and experience. Besides instruction in connection 
with the text-book, lectures illustrated by experiments are given 
from time to time. 

Students in 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, eminent musicians 
from a distance frequently give concerts to which our Music 
pupils are admitted at reduced rates. 

SPECIAL LECTURES. 

Special lectures in the form of familiar talks will be given each 
term by the President. These lectures will cover the discussion 
of social ethics, the care of health, how to eat, how to work, how 
to play, how to rest, current literature and current events in rela- 



i )

tion to school life, with other subjects which may be helpful to 
young people who wish to make the most of opportunity. 

The President will also give a course of lectures to young men 
preparing for the ministry, covering such themes as may be of 
value to them as preachers, as pastors and as citizens. 

YOUNG LADIES. 

Constant and systematic efforts are made looking toward the 
general culture of the young ladies committed to our care. The 
lady members of the Faculty take personal interest in all things 
pertaining to their welfare and are intimately associated with them 
in recreation hours. 

Every Saturday short lectures are given by the Preceptress to 
all young ladies on social culture, literature, art and kindred topics. 
During the coming year, in addition to these lectures, the ladies 
of the Senior class will meet the Preceptress monthly for purposes 
of literary criticism. 

TELEGRAPHY. 

Among the physical apparatus are several telegraphing instru- 
ments, one of which, the gift of Benjamin G. Welch, Superin- 
tendent of the Williamsport and North Branch Railroad, is a very 
fine model, showing the various parts of different instruments. 
During the year a number of instruments have been placed in 
students' and teachers' rooms, affording excellent opportunity for 
study and practice to those who desire to fit themselves for prac- 
tical work in this growing branch of industry. 

TEACHERS. 

A Normal Class may be organized during the Fall and Spring 
Terms for those who desire to teach. The Course will compre- 
hend special instruction by Lectures on the Theory and Methods 
of Teaching by the President. No extra charge will be made, 

SCHOLARSHIPS. 

Mr. DeWitt Bodine, of Hughesville, Pa., an alumnus of the 
Seminary, has the honor of founding the first full scholarship in

this Institution. It is to be filled from the public schools of 
Hughesville by competitive examinations and is designated 

The DeWitt Bodine Scholarship. 

It pays all expenses of board, tuition, etc., in any regular course 
of study. 

Who will imitate Mr. Bodine's example? Are there not 
generous men and women among our alumni and friends ready to 
invest a portion of their wealth where it will be secure and work 
for God for ever ? A comparatively small sum will do a large work. 
The interest on a thousand dollars, in many instances, will supple- 
ment the meager resources of a worthy young man or woman 
whom God has given large ability but from whom fortune has 
withheld the means to develop it. This is especially true of those 
who are called into the ministry or into missionary work. Any 
sum will help, and three thousand dollars will found a ministry or 
missionary scholarship in this Institution and maintain it per- 
petually. 

OUTFIT. 

The gentlemen should be provided with 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 calisthenics 
and light gymnastics. Their attire for general use should be neat 
and simple, but not elegant or expensive. All wearing apparel 
must be plainly 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, y^r use in case of sickness, 

A WORD TO PARENTS. 

I- B@°* Try to have your children here on the first day of the 
term, b?it not before, as we shall not be ready to receive them. 
The classes are formed on the second day, 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. 
Absence, 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. 

I@^ Students not boarding in the Institution must observe the 
- following rules : 

1. Attend daily prayers, unless excused. 

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

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

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

MEANS OF ACCESS. 

Williamsport is eight and a half hours from New York, six 
hours from Philadelphia, nine hours from Pittsburg, six hours 
from Baltimore, three hours fi'om Harrisburg, and three hours 
from Elmira, and is reached directly by the Pennsylvania, the 
Philadelphia and Reading, the Northern Central and the Phila- 
delphia and Erie railroads, which pass through the city, and as 
these have connections directly with all the great railroads, is 
readily accessible from all quarters. 

GRADUATES AND FORMER STUDENTS. 

It may safely be estimated that from eight to ten thousand per- 
sons have received Academic instruction, covering from one to 
three years, in Williamsport Dickinson Seminary, while five hun- 
dred and sixty-one 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 
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 concerning their personal history that may 
be of general interest, as we wish to compile a complete cata-

There is a general meeting of the Alumni every year, the day

And now, may I not ask you to aid in enlarging the sphere and 
increasing the power of our Alma Mater? 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 the pubHc may form an inteUigent opinion of the estima- 
tion in which the Institution is held by those who have had 
opportunity to judge of its management and practical work, we 
publish some testimonials recently received from our friends and 

patrons : 

HuGHESViLLE, Pa., April 26, 1892. 

Rev. E. J. Gray^ D. i)., President Dickinson Seminary : 

Dear Sir — Your invitation to the patrons of Dickinson to express their 
opinions covers so much detail that it will be difficult to condense quite as much 
as is necessary. My opinions are formed from rather frequent visits to Dickinson 
Seminary, from the experience of my daughter as one of your students and an 
acquaintance with some of your Faculty, gained by my visits, togetlier with the 
opportunity of hearing the unrestrained expressions of students, and my conclu- 
sions are as follows: The Seminary has a cheerful, attractive atmosphere about 
it, with an entire absence of any appearance of physical restraint. U is so 
pleasantly warmed by your steam heating system in cool weather that I have 
noticed, always, that it was very thoroughly ventilated and full of fresh, pure air. 
Havino^ taken meals with the students quite a number of times, 1 have always 
enjoyed the table service and bill of fare; the home-like intercourse at the table 
I consider quite a desirable feature. I have been fully 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 recita- 
tion. The system of government that appeals to the honor and conscience of the 
pupils is certainly preparing^them for the decision of actual questions of life, 
better than any system of physical restraint could possibly do, and at the same 
time secures 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, 

Bknj. (t. Welch, 
General Manager of Williamsport & North Branch K. R. Co. 

My eldest daughter graduated from Williamsport Dickinson Seminary in 1886. 
From my knowledge of the school, 1 do not hesitate to recommend it as one of 
the best institutions in our church. As a home for young ladies, both for its 
comforts and healthful ness, I know of none superior. The discipline is all any 
one could ask, and the facilities for mental and moral culture are of 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. 

Richard Norris, 
Pastor of Harford Avenue M. E. Church, Baltimore Conference, Baltimore, Md. 

My judgment of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary, based on knowledge de- 
rived from several years' residence in close proximity to the institution, and also 
from two sons who have been students in the Fchool, is, that for opportunity for 
mental and moral culture, for helpfulness, for home comforts and especially for 
discipline, the Seminary is worthy my most earnest commendation. 

J. H. McGarrah, 
Pastor M. E. Church, York, Pa.

Bloomsburg, Pa., May 7, 1889. 
I have watched for years, with pleasure, the steady growth and prosperity of 
Williamsport Dickinson Seminary under your excellent management. 1 have 
been impressed with its kind, but firm discipline, the great opportunity for in- 
tellectual and moral improvement, and the delightful home feeling and influence 
that seem to unite the Faculty and students and pervade the entire institution. 1 
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 Donahue, 



P. E. Danville District, Central Pa. Conference. 

Harrisburg, Pa., May 8, 1889. 

Three of my children have attended Dickinson Seminary for a period aggre- 
gating between six and seven years. As regards everything that goes to make up 
a first-class school of the kind, 1 doubt if it is surpassed by any school in the 
country, and there are very few its equal. 1 can heartily recommend it to parents 
and others having children to educate. 

B. F. Stevens. 

Canton, Pa., May 6, 1889. 

I take great pleasure in bearing testimony to the high moral tone and good 
discipline of Dickinson Seminary. 

i am convinced that the degree of advancement is fully equal 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. 

George 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 observation, 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. Tracy, 
Pastor M. E. C, Central N. Y. Conference. 

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, Coalport, Pa. 

1 am an alumnus of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary. Regard it as a very 
careful institution; careful to provide facilities for mental and moral improve- 
ment; careful in looking after the character of its young men and women. 

J. H. Mortimer, 
Pastor M. E. Church, Conyngham, Pa. 

I can heartily recommend Dickinson Seminary to any young person desiring 
a higher education. 

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

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

George E. King, 
Class 76, Pastor M. E. Church, Duncansville, Pa.

Having at one time been a stndont of Dickinson Seminary, recently a visitor 
also a patron, U seems to me that the home like arrangements of the buildinffs 
and management, being so mucli after tiie order of a family, makes this institntiwi 
one to be highly prized by its patrons. We think also its Faculty will compare 
favorably with any other school of like grade, and the students become greatly 
attached to the place. j^hx L. BAifB, ^

music and painting, are excellent. I believe it is the constant

I finished my preparation for college at Williamsport Dickinson Seminary. 1 
learned more 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 religious influences are of the best. 

T. M. B. Hicks, 
Lawyer, Williamsport, Pa. 

It affords me great pleasure to bear testimony to the high character and 
thorougli work of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary. Having been a student in 
the institution, I am enabled to speak from personal knowledge. The school em- 
bodies all the essential features of a Christian home. Its location and sanitary 
equipments insure its healthfulness, while its facilities for mental and moral 
culture are of such character as to secure to students the largest and best results. 
Parents need not hesitate to commit their children to its wholesome and stimu- 
lating discipline. 

G. Murray Klepfer, 
Pastor M. E. Church, Danville, Pa. 



Having had two daugiiters graduated at the Williamsport Dickinson Seminary, 
I think I can speak understandingly in regard to the merits of the school. I can, 
therefore, conscientiously recommend it to those who may be vseeking 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, Stewartstown, Pa. 

Having had two sons educated at this school, I would earnestly recommend 
Williamsport Dickinson Seminary to parents having children to educate, or to 
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. Harvey, 
Merchant, Harvey ville, Pa. 

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

D. E. Thomas, 
Farmer, Darlington, Hereford County, Md. 

It affords me pleasure to bear testimony to the home comforts, discipline, 
healthfulness and facilities for mental and moral culture afforded by VVilliamsport 
Dickinson Seminary. My knowledge is positive, my daughter having been a 
student in the school for three years, and my wife having been to see the institu- 
tion herself. I can heartily recommend the school to others. 

Wilson J. Sterling, 
Boiler Works, Reading, Pa. 

A student experience of more than three years at Dickinson Seminary compels 
me to think highly of her, my Alma Mater. An Alumnus of the Seminary, after- 
wards 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 college. My wife (Alumna) says: "The 
religious influence of the Seminary were excellent." My own appreciation of 
the all around advantages of the Seminary is manifest in the fact that when look- 
ing 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. Hartzell, 
Class 79, Pastor M. E. Church, Newton Hamilton, Pa.

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

G. W. Stevens, 
Class '81, Pastor M. E. Church, Harrisburg, Pa. 

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

I believe its facilities for mental and moral culture to be unsurpassed by anv 
school of like grade in this coimtry. 

Benj. II. Mosser, 
Class 77, M. E. Church, Milton, Pa. 

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, bein^ 
all the unconverted boarding students but four. Since entering upon my life work 
I have had abundant opportunity for observing the work of the school. The 
religious and home influences continue, and the efficiency of the school in all 
departments is rapidly increasing. J. D. W. Deavur, 

Pastor M. E. Church, Weatherly, Pa. 

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 Conference Visiting 
Committee, it was my privilege often to visit Williamsport Dickinson Seminarv. 
As my knowledge of the institution increased relative to its location, healthfnl- 
ness, equipment, discipline, morals, and the excellence and thoroughness of the 
w^ork 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 ad- 
vantages of a first-class Seminary, as admirably adapted to secure the fullest 
realization of their hopes. k. h. Gilbert, 

Pastor M. E. Church, Tyrone, Pa. 

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 practical 
sense, shown in many ways, that pervades the instruction, discipline and social 
intercourse. I am more and more grateful for what that did for me. 

J. K. DUNKERLY, 

Class '78, Pastor M. E. Church, Hopewell, Pa. 

I have been a patron of Dickinson Seminary for the past three years, and from 
the knowledge I have obtained by visits to the Seminary and from mv daughter 
I cheerfully recommend this Seminary to those seeking a school. Tlie 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. The curriculum of studies 
is of a high order, and under the excellent discipline— a parental one— of Dr. 
Gray and an efl^icient corps of professors and teachers, I am confident patrons will

I have been a student in Williamsport Dickinson Seminary. The discipline 
IS good, the moral and religious atmosphere of the very best. Instruction thor- 
ough—being practical rather than theoretical. The recent improvements to the 
building have added very largely to its beauty, comfort, convenience and useful-

WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY. 



Having spent three years and a half in Dickinson Seminary after I was twenty- 

In^JT^ff f ^^^-^ r^"^ '^^"^y ^.^f/'^ ^^^* ^ ^ ^^'^^^1 ^^>^ "cental and moral culture 
and helpful discip ine impartially administered, I think there are few equals and 
none superior to the Seminary in the country. ^ 

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

My daughter having graduated at Dickinson Seminary, has given me oppor- 
unity to know its worth. For home-like comforts, healthfulness, and discipline, 
as well as for mora and mental culture, I would cheerfully recommend the institu- 
tion to all seeking higher education. 

E. M. Kline, 
Merchant, New Cumberland, Pa. 

It gives me pleasure to recommend Dickinson Seminary as a school of hi^h 
moral and religious character. My son being a student in the Seminary during 

%h! S^. r"""* /lyu'^'V^ ^^ '^ ^^'? observer. The discipline of the school and 
the situation of the buildings make it a desirable and inviting educational home. 

Joseph Nixon, Sr., Altoona, Pa. 

Having spent three years at Williamsport Dickinson Seminary, under the 
present administration, J can heartily recommend the institution to any one seek- 
ing a higher education. Superior intellectual advantages are offered. The 
personal interest manifested in the students is a commendable feature. The dis- 
cipline IS hrm, yet mild and parental; in short, tlie Seminary is a Christian home 
where every interest of the student is delightfully guarded. My experience has 
been that the moral atmosphere pervading the school is more conducive to a 
healthy religious growth than the influence characterizing the majority of our 
institutions of learning. - j ^ 

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

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 
Jrequent visitor and was favorably impressed with the management, its healthful 
location, discipline and low cost of tuition, &c., in comparison with other schools 
ot same grade. 

John G. McGraw, 
Superintendent and Keal Estate Agent, Claysburg, Pa. 

Having spent nearly two years in Dickinson Seminary, under the present 
management, I have no hesitancy in recommending it as a first-cla^ 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. Lamberson, 
Pastor M. E. Church, Dillsburg, Pa. 

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

Yours truly, 

R. S. Taylor, 
Pastor M. E. Church, Picture Rocks, Pa.
