General Information 

J-Juildin^-s cind Grounds. 

Swarthmore College was founded in 1864 by members of the reli- 
gious Society of Friends, to provide the children of the Societ)- and 
others with opportunities for higher education under guarded care. 
With this object in view, a property of two hundred and forty acres 
was secured, ten miles from Philadelphia, on the Central r)ivision 
of the Philadelphia, Wilmington &: Baltimore Railroad. It is ac- 
cessible by trains from the Broad Street Station twenty- four times^ 
daily. About half the land is used for farming purposes, providing 
milk and vegetables for the College ; the remainder is devoted to 
lawn and pleasure grounds. Crum Creek, which forms the western 
boundary of the property, affords facilities for boating, bathing, and 
skating. The portion of the grounds bordering the stream is of great 
picturesque beauty. The building site is high, securing perfect drain- 
age and pure air and commanding a fine view of the surrounding 
country for many uiiles. 

The Principal College Building is a massive stone structure 348 
feet long. It consists of a central building, ^\vt stories higli, contain- 
ing public rooms, such as lecture-rooms, museum, librar\ , reading- 
rooms, parlors, dining-hall, etc. Fire-proof compartments separate 
this building from the two wings. The latter are each four stories 
high. The ground floors are devoted to lecture and recitation rooms ^ 
the remaining floors in the east wing contain the dormitories of the 
young women, and in the west wing those of the voung men. A 
number of the instructors reside in the same building with the stu- 
dents, and the relations between them are sucli that there is compara- 
tive freedom from the dangers and temj^tations ordinarily incident to 
college life. The buildings are heated throughout by steam, lighted 
by gas, and thoroughly ventilated. 

The Science Hall is constructed of stone, in the most durable 
manner, and was planned with special reference to the work of stu- 
2 (17 i 


dents in Engineering, Physics, and Chemistry, It has a frontage of 
162 feet, and, a depth of 64 feet. The basement contains engine and 
l)oiler-rooms, the blacksmith shop, and the foundry of the engineering- 
department, the electrical laboratory, and store- rooms. On the first 
floor are the machine shop and engineering lecture-room, the engi- 
neering laboratory, and the chemical and physical laboratories, and 
on the second floor are the draughting-rooms, the wood-working 
shop, and the chemical and physical lecture-rooms. 

The Astronomical Observatory is especially arranged for purposes 
of instruction. The plan embraces a central building supporting the 
•dome and two wings. There are four rooms : a transit-room, in 
which is placed an instrument of three-inch aperture, also the mean- 
time clock ; a pier-room, at present utilized as a sidereal-clock-rooni ; 
•a work-room, in which is placed a small library of reference books, 
the chronograph and chronometer; and the dome, containing the 
■equatorial of six-inch aperture. In connection with this latter instru- 
ment there is a micrometer and a spectroscope. The transit and 
•equatorial were constructed by Warner & Swasey, of Cleveland, O., 
and the spectroscope by Brashear, of Allegheny, Pa. The equipment 
is ample for class-work. Connected with the observatory is the Signal 
Service Station of the State Weather Bureau, fully provided with the 
necessary meteorological and other apparatus. 

Otlier Buildings are a meeting-house, the President's house, the 
West house (birthplace of Benjamin West, now used as a professor's 
house), the house of the Professor of Astronomy, the Farmer's house 
and commodious farm-buildings, the laundry and bakery, the boiler- 
house, containing the sectional boilers for heating and cooking pur- 
poses, and the gymnasium for young women. All these buildings are 
constructed of stone. 

Libraries and Reading-Room. 

Tiie Libraries of the College collectively contain 18,175 bound 
volumes, as follows :

Members of the Senior (."lass are permitted, under proper regu- 
lations, to consult the I'liiladciphia f library, containing 145,000 vol- 
umes, and the Mercantile Library, containing 150,000 volumes, as 
well as the valuable special and technical libraries in the city of Phila- 
delphia. The (General I-ibrary is at all times accessible to students. 
The Librarian will aid students in consulting the f.ibrary and in 
arranging courses of reading. 

Friends' JUstorical lAbrary, founded by the lale Anson Lapham, 
of Skaneateles, N. Y., contains a valuable collection of Friends' 
books, photographs of representative Friends, and manuscripts 
relating to the Society and its history, and is, \ipon application to 
the Librarian, accessible to all persons interested in the doctrines 
and history of Friends. This collection is stored in a fireproof 
apartment, and it is hoped that Friends and others will deem it a 
secure place in which to deposit books and other material in their 
possession which may be of interest in connection with the history of 
the Society. Such contributions, as well as additional funds for its 
growth and maintenance, are solicited, and should be addressed to 
^'Friends' Historical' Library" or to "Arthur Bp:ardslev, Libra- 
rian. Swarthmore, Pa." 

Tiie Reading-Rooiii is supplied with the leading literary and sci- 
■entific journals and the prominent newspapers of the principal cities. 

Liferary Societies are maintained by the students. There are two 
for young men and one for young women. These hold regular meet- 
ings for the reading of essays, etc., and for practice in debate. Their 
Libraries, under their own management, contain over three thousand 
volumes and are accessible to all students. 

The Gymnasiums. 

Tlie Gyninasiiiin for the young men is supplied with a full set 
of apparatus for exercising according to the svstem of Dr. Sargent. 
Through the efforts of the Somerville Literary Societ\ and their friends 
a. separate gymnasium for the young women has been built and equipped 
for exercise under the Swedish system. The exercises are conducted 
in separate classes for the }onng men and young women, and are re- 
quired of all. 

Students are re q nested to bring from home a phvsician s certifieate 


if there is any cause thai would mal.:e it dangerous for them to take part 
in the exercises required. 

The extensive and beautiful grounds connected with the College 
invite to out-door exercise, which is encouraged by the authorities. 
On the highest and driest part of the campus a space has been pre- 
pared for athletic games, with a quarter-mile cinder running track, and 
a well-graded field for foot-ball and base-ball, whilst the surrounding 
country offers facilities for crosscountry running. 

General Regulations. 

Religious Exercises. — While care is taken to inculcate the doc- 
trine that religion is a matter of practical daily life, and is not con- 
fined to the observance of set forms or the promulgation of religious 
tenets, the regular assembling for religious purposes is carefully ob- 
served. On First-day morning a religious meeting is held, attended 
by students, teachers, members of the household, and Friends of the 
neighborhood. The meeting is preceded by First-day school exer- 
cises, consisting of the recitation of passages of Scripture prepared 
by members of the different classes, and the reading of a portion of 
Scripture. The daily exercises are opened by a general meeting for 
reading selected portions of Scripture or other suitable books, and 
for imparting such moral lessons as circumstances seem to require, fol- 
lowed by a period of silence before entering upon the duties of the day. 

The use of tobacco being strictly prohibited, those addicted to 
its use, unless prepared to renounce it entirely, should not apply for 

Coininencenient and Vacation. — The College year begins on the 
third Third-day of Ninth month, and closes with Commencement day, 
which occurs on the second Third-day of Sixth month. 

Students are not admitted for a period less than the current Col- 
lege year : but, when vacancies exist, they may enter at anytime dur- 
ing the year. 

Besides the summer vacation there will be a recess of about ten 
days at the close of the Twelfth month, and one of one week in the 
Third month. (See Calendar.) 

Students are permitted to remain at the College, under care, dur- 
ing the recesses, but not during the summer vacation. 


The HoLiseliold. 

In the organization of this College unusual care has been extended 
to the personal comforts and the social interests of the students. This 
department is in charge of the Dean, with able assistants. She has 
also special oversight of the conduct and health of the young women, 
and parents are desired to communicate freely with her in regard to 
the welfare of their daughters. 

The several departments of the household are under the imme- 
diate charge of the following : 

Mary P. Eves, Matron of Central Building. 
Sarah D. Coale, Matron of West Wing. 
Ellen Roberts, Director of Laundry. 

Mary R. Satterthwaite, Housekeeper. 

Ella Michener, Matron of East Wing. 


The cost of Board and Tuition is ^450 per year, of which $250 
is payable in advance, and ^200 on the first of First month. 

For Day Students, the price is $200 per year, of which $ioo is 
payable in advance, and the remainder on the first of First month. 
The day students take lunch with the resident students. 

A deposit of five dollars is required by each male student to 
defray any expense incurred by injury to property. The unexpended 
balance will be returned at the end of the year. 

Students purchase their own books, which the College will furnish 
at the lowest obtainable rates. They also buy their own stationery, 
drawing implements, and certain tools and materials used in the work- 
shops, and pay at a reasonable rate for laundry work done at the 
College. Students taking laboratory courses will make a deposit of 
$10 at the beginning of the course to cover the expense of tlie material 


used. Hie unexpended balance will be returned at the end of the 

In case of illness, no extra charge is made unless a physician or 
trained nurse be employed. 

The above figures may be depended upon as covering all neces- 
sary expenses. 


Payments are to be made by check or draft to the order of 

Robert Biddle, Treasurer.

Kxaminations for Aclniission. 


The studies retiuired for a Degree extend over four years. The 
requirements for admission are intended to be such as Friends' schools 
generally can meet. Owing to the enforcement of regular hours for 
study, and the absence of all opportunity for dissipation, the amount 
accomplished in four years is large, and is believed to afford a suffi- 
cient preparation in classics, science, and general culture for the 
ordinary avocations of life, for the study of any of the learned profes- 
sions, or as candidates for advanced degrees in the higher universities. 

Time and Conditions of Admission. 

To secure places, application for admission should be made as 
early as possible by letter to the President. 

All applicants must submit satisfactory testimonials of good 
character from their last teachers, and students coming from another 
college must present certificates of honorable dismissal. 

The examinations for admission may be taken either in the sum- 
mer at the close of the college year, or in the fall. See Calendar for 
the dates. 

Students are also admitted at any time during the year, and are 
charged for the unexpired time until the close of the year.

The Museum. 

The Museum of the College is strictly a teaching collection, and 
the specimens from its cases are in constant use in the lectures and 
laboratories in Natural History; it is growing steadily, but always in 
the direction of rendering more perfect the means of illustrating the 
different departments of Natural History, and with no intention of 
making it a collection of curiosities or miscellaneous articles, however 
interesting they may be in their way. 

It includes the following collections: 

T. The Joseph Leidy Collection of Minerals, the result of thirty 
years' discriminative collecting by its founder, occupies four large 

SWARIIIMORI': ( OI.I.i;(,K. ■j,<i 

double cases, and consists of exceedingly choice cabinet sj^ccimens 
of crystallized minerals, characteristic rocks and ores, and trans- 
parent and opaciue models of the various systems of crystalliza-

cases of Indian implements, weapons, clothing, etc., mostly from 

,5. The C. F. Parker Collection of Shells is made up of six large 
cases of choice typical land, fresh-water, and marine shells. These 
specimens were all selected by the Curator from the extensive collec- 
tion of the late C. F. Parker, and render further additions to this 
branch needless. The founder of this collection was for many 
years the Curator in charge of the Academy of Natural Sciences of

invertebrates (including the U. S. Fish Commission Educational Col- 
lection,) of dissected specimens for demonstration in the lectures on 
Physiology and Hygiene, glass and papier-mache models of inverte- 
brates and of special points in vegetable and animal morphology, 
besides some three hundred classified diagrams and finely colored

William C. Day, Fro/rssor. 

The course of instruction in this sul)ject extends over a period of 
four vears. and aims to impart a thorough understanding of the most 
essential facts and principles of the science, while special attention is 
given to the cultivation of systematic habits of manipulation, so that, 
besides possessing value as part of a liberal education, it forms a foun- 
dation for such pursuits in life as require this knowledge. 

Those who may desire to continue their work beyond the limits 
of the regular course will have suitable work assigned them, and will 
find every facility for carrying it on. 

T/i^ Chemical Laboratory occwT^Ktv, rooms in Science Hall. It 
includes a room for work in General Chemistry and Qualitative 
Analysis, one for Quantitative Analysis, and a basement room for 
Assaying and Metallurgy. Near to these are store-rooms, a balance- 
room, and a lecture-room. The Laboratory tables are covered with 
glazed tiles ; fume-closets, suction for filtration, water and gas are pro- 
vided. The lecture-room, with a seating capacity of one hundred, is 
furnished with water, gas, fume-closets, and abundant apparatus for 
lecture j^urposes. For lecture illustration, there is an excellent col- 
lection of the metals and their salts, and a cabinet of minerals (de- 
posited by Hugh Foulke). In addition to these there is a complete 
set of typical preparations for use in the course in Organic Chemistry. 

Chemical Library. — In all cases students are encouraged in the 
habit of consulting for themselves the best authorities ; and in a room 
near to the Laboratory there will be found a number of standard works 
on Chemistry; besides, there are numerous other works on technical 
and anal\tical subjects, current chemical journals, including some 
comj^lete sets of the latter. 

Text-Boo/;s. — As the student advances in the course the follow- 
ing text-books are used : " Elementary Chemistry," Remsen ; " Quali- 
tative Analysis," Medicus ; "Introduction to the Study of the Con- 
pounds of Carbon," Remsen; "Quantitative Chemical Analysis," 
Fresenius ; "Theoretical Chemistry," Remsen. Special works in 
technical analysis are used as rc(|uired.

Senior Class. — The course during this year consists largely of 
laboratory work. A few special subjects are given to each student, 
with the understanding that he is to fulfill the practical and theoret- 
ical requirements of these subjects in a complete, exhaustive, and 
scholarly manner. Such work will involve the study of technical 
works and a number of the current chemical journals. Meetings will 
occasionally be held for the consideration of important researches, as 
they appear from time to time in the journals. 

Drawing and Painting. 

1>K.'\ TKICK Mac.ii.l, InslrKctor. 

A course of Freehand Drawing and Painting is open to all. 
Aside from its intrinsic value as a means of culture, it leads to habits 
of close observation, and is a very important adjunct to the other 
courses, especially to those of Engineering and Science. 

It consists of drawing from objects and casts, and painting tVom 
still-lite, flowers, etc., and a series of lectureson Practical Perspective 
and the History of Painting, A Sketch Class is open to the students 
qualified to work in it. It is held one afternoon a week for out-door 
sketching in the Spring and Autumn, and during the Winter-time 
sketches are made in the studio from casts and still-life, in color and 
li^ht and shade. 


As the teaching in this department is altogether individual, suited 
to the special needs of each student, and not class work, there is no 
marked out course for each class : but every student must pass the fol- 
lowing graded course: 

Drawing from geometrical objects; still-life; cast of ornament; 
cast, details of figure ; cast, head, or figure. 

After a sufficient training in drawing the student may pass to 
painting (either in water-color, oil, or pastel) still life, flowers, and 
out-door sketching. 

History of Art.

This department is intended to give a good preparation to those 
students who are expecting to become either Civil or Mechanical 
Engineers, or to engage in any of the several specialties of engineer- 
ing practice. The studies and exercises are so arranged that the 
graduates will be prepared to become immediately useful in the 
office, works, or field, in subordinate positions, and, after a fair 
amount of such practice, to design and take charge of important

English Language and Literature. 

William H. Appleton, Anglo-Saxon and Early English. 

John Russell Hayes, English. 

Myrtie E. Furman, Elocntion and Oratory. 

The course in English Literature extends through three vears, 
instruction being given by recitations and lectures. During this time 
the English Language is studied in connection with the Literature 
from the Anglo-Saxon period down to the present day. The particu- 
lar feature of the course is the critical reading in the class-room of 
representa; ive authors, such as Chaucer, Spenser, Shakespeare, Milton, 
Pope, Wordsworth, Tennyson. Peculiarities of style and language 
are considered, allusions are looked up, and every effort made for a 
thorough comprehension of the work in hand. The author's life is 
studied in its relations to the history of the time, and his works are 
compared with those of his contemporaries. By this course it is ex- 
pected that the student will be enabled, from his own observation, to 

s WAR III MORE c(ji,i.E(;i;, ;i7 

form an intelligent estimate of the style and merits of the great 
authors of l'!)nglish literature. 

So far as practicable, the work in I>iterature, in Rhetoric and 
Composition, and in Klocution and C)ratory is co-ordinated. The 
subjects for essays are largely suggested by the work in Literature, and 
in Elocution and Oratory the study, as literature, of the literature read 
is considered fundamental to an intelligent oral expression. 

The courses offered are as follows: 

a. Literature. 

Fre.shman Year. — Lamb, Wordsworth, Shelley, Keats, Ten- 
nyson, Browning, Arnold, Whittier, Emerson. 

The aim here, as throughout the course, is towards intellectual 
discipline and spiritual insight, no less than towards an appreciation of 
literary values. Portions of other authors are read, and a short his- 
torical survey of the Greek and the Roman literature is given, in 
order to illustrate the debt of English literature to the earlier great 

Sophomore Ye.'\r. — The work of the year is largely Shakespeare. 
The history of Elizabethan literature, Marlowe's Echuard II and 
parts of TiDiibiirlaini' ; Shakespeare's Ricluird II, Hamlet, The 
Tempest, and other selected plays ; Milton's poems ; and selections 
from Herbert, Herrick, Dryden, Pope, Gray, Cowper, and Burns. 

JUNIOR Year. — First Semester : Anglo-Saxon; Sweet's Primer, 
Cynewulf's Elene, Lectures on the Anglo-Saxon period. 

Second Semester : Chaucer, Spenser (Faery Queene) ; Outside 
reading of minor contemporary authors by students ; Lectures on the 
Transition and Middle English periods, and on the Development of 
the English Language. 

The above Junior courses are elective for Seniors. 

In addition to the required class work there is in all classes addi- 
tional reading suggested for such members as choose to avail them- 
selves of the opportunity offered for conference and personal advice. 

/'. Rhetoric and Composition. 

This course is required of all regular students. 


Freshman Year. — Practice in clear and logical expression of 
simple thought. 

Sophomore Year. — The study of the art of versification. Text- 
book, Corson's "Primer of English Verse. " Practice in narrative 
composition. Text-book, Brewster's " Specimens of Prose Narra- 

Junior Yfar. — Study and ])ractice of higher style and artistic 
expression. Text-books, Baldwin's " Specimens of Prose Descrip- 
tion " and Perry's "Selections from Burke." 

Senior Year. — The preparation of graduating theses. 

c. Elocution and Oratory. 

Inasmuch as natural and effective speech is one of the most potent 
factors for success in life, the subjects of Elocution and Oratory have 
been combined, and the student is given practice in expressing his 
own thought as well as the thought of an author. The aim in this 
course is to stimulate to a broader mental grasp, cultivate the imagi- 
nation, and arouse the sensibilities, the theory accepted being that 
effective expression is a result of vivid mental impressions. Hence 
the student is given exercises whereby he learns to utilize his experi- 
ences, to vivify his thought, and thus be able to enter into the spirit 
of the literature read and to make it a part of himself. 

A sound and flexible body being the medium through which the 
soul must express itself, due attention is given to physical training, 
voice culture, and enunciation. 

The course in Elocution and Oratory extends through four years. 
First year, original work, reading, and recitation of typical orations 
in connection with the work required under Rhetoric and Composi- 
tion, the critical reading of the " Merchant of Venice " and "Julius 
Caesar," with imaginative study and description of the characters of 
the dramas voice culture, enunciation, physical training. Second 
year, original work continued, extemporaneous speech, voice culture, 
etc., continued, the critical reading of "Twelfth Night" and other 
standard selections. Third and fourth years, the work continued 
more fundamentally. 

During the college year there are several contests in oratory and 
declamation, open to all students, which stimulate oratorical zeal. 

swARTiiMr)Rr, roi.i.r/;!-:. .'><> 

The members of the Senior Class give a Shakespeare evening in fhar- 
acter, in preparation for which they receive instruction. 

Every effort is made to make the work in this department a 
stimulus to thought. A careful study is required of the literature 
read, so that the course is to some extent a course in Hnglish 

Frencli Lcini^iuigc and Literature. 

KinvARD H. MA(;n,i,, Prcfessvr. 

The objective points in the study of the French language will be 
wide and extensive reading, making the student as familiar as the 
time will allow with as many as possible of the best works in French 
literature. To this end a minimum of grammar will be required, and 
rapid reading at sight encouraged early in the course. While the 
classical authors of the seventeenth century will receive careful atten- 
tion, as much of the literature of the present generation as is found 
practicable will be introduced into the course. It is not possible nor 
necessary to name all the various works used, as they will be changed 
from year to year, as circumstances and the condition of classes seem 
to require. 

Course I. Time, one year. French Grammar — inflections of 
regular verbs and auxiliaries ; forms of articles, nouns, adjectives, and 
pronouns ; common irregular verbs ; general principles of syntax. 
Super's Preparatory French Reader ; Magill's '< Modern French 
Series," Vol. I, Dictees. 

Course II. Time, one year. French Grammar reviewed and 
continued; Magill's " Modern French Series," Vols. II and III; 
varied selections (entire) from modern French writers ; Dictees ; 

Course III. Time, one year. Corneille's Horace and Poly- 
eucte ; Racine's Britannicus and Esther ; Moliere's Misanthrope and 
Les Precieuses Ridicules; Victor Hugo's Hernani, and selections 
entire from modern French writers ; Dictees : Lectures on French 
Literature ; Conversation and Correspondence. 

Course IV. Time, one year. Conversation and Correspon- 
dence in French ; Dictees, Essays, Critiques ; varied selected works 


(entire) of authors of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; Lec- 
tures on French Literature. 

Course V. Time, one year. This course will be similar to 
Course IV, but the aMthors used in class will be different. It is to be 
considered as equivalent to Course IV, and that students who desire a 
fifth year may take both, and that either may count as a fourth year's 
work. Courses IV and V will be given in alternate years.

Presidknt De Garmo. 

The work in this department consists of a fundamental study, 
first, of the growing mind of the child, its natural capacities, tenden- 
cies, interests, and methods of growth ; then of the choice and co- 
ordination of studies, together with the best methods of teaching 
them ; and, finally, of the methods whereby the character of the child 
may best be developed through school discipline and instruction. The 
works of Herbart and his successors are thoroughly studied. 


Presidknt De Garmo. 


Psychology. — First Semester : James's Psychology. Special atten- 
tion paid to the i^rocesses of knowledge, feeling, and volition from 
the standpoint of modern physiological psychology. Essays based 
upon a study of the nervous system, together with extensive reference 
to the standard literature of the various topics selected. 

In connection with this work a course in experimental psychol- 
ogy is given, investigating the sensation as an element of perception, 
the after-effects of stimuli through their action upon sense organs and

nervous system, the i)roblem of association, and that of ii.\>\icr<:c\)[\())). 
Among the topics treated the following are prominent : 

Quality, intensity, and feeling-tone of sensations ; relation of 
the sensation to the physical objects or stimuli of the environment; 
relation of the sensations to the sense organs and other structures of 
the body ; fatigue, after-image, successive contrast, simultaneous 
contrast, memory image, memory; physiological and psychical asso- 
ciation as factors of sensations to form the ]ierception of a single 
object extended in space; apperceptive complication in perception; 
the relation of the sensation to past experience, to idea groups, and 
the perceiving self. Prof. Witmer's manual, Exl>erimcntal Course on 
Perception, is followed. 

History of Philosophy. — Second Semester : The history of Ancient 
and Modern Philosophy is taught in alternate years. First course, 
History of Philosophy, from Thales to Leibnitz, inclusive, with 
especial reference to Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle ; second course, 
from Descartes to the present. The ethical bearings of each promi- 
nent system are dwelt upon. 

Physical Training. 

Dr. J. K. 

The system of Physical Training is based on a thorough examina- 
tion of each student, carefully noting all defects of development and 
functional weakness, and the ratio existing between the tested strength 
and the muscularity, and on these data formulating a course of exer- 
cises such as will meet the requirement of each individual, so as to 
produce an evenly developed and healthy organism. 

The young men are required to give three hours each week for 
carrying out the prescription of the Director. 

The sports of foot-ball, base-ball and athletics are under the 
direct supervision of the Director, and only those who are physically 
fit are allowed actively to compete; great care is taken that the games 
be kept within proper limits, so as not to take too much of the stu- 
dents' attention or energy. 



Dr. Mary V. Mitchell Green. 

Rachel Lloyd Hutchinson, Assistant. 

A careful examination is made of each student's physical condi- 
tion, and the exercises to suit individual needs are assigned according 
to the Swedish system. 

Tennis, golf, and other out-door exercises are provided for the 
young Avomen. 



George A. Hoadley, Professor. 

Tlic Physical Laboratory '\% 2\x^ provided with apparatus for 
determinations in the mechanics of solids and fluids, in heat, sound, 
light, electricity, and magnetism ; as also with a large amount for 
lecture experiments. Most of this has been selected with care from 
the best American and foreign makers, but some is of home manu- 
facture. The co-operation of the Engineering Department and the 
increasing skill of our students enable us now to make each year a 
larger proportion for regular use in the Laboratory. It is our aim to 
afford students continued opportunities for instruction in the princi- 
ples of construction of ordinary and special apparatus. Power for 
running dynamos and for other purposes is near at hand. The in- 
struction begins in the Sophomore year, and extends through the 
course as follows : 


Sophomore Class. — General Physics. — This course consists of 
the investigation of the general laws of Physics and the consideration 
of their jjractical application. 

The work of the course is done by lectures and recitations, 
accompanied by experimental verification of the laws discussed, and 
extends over the entire year. 

Junior Class. — During the Junior year the course is an elective 
in Heat, Magnetism, Electricity, and Light. 



'I'his course occupies two consecutive years, requiring two periods 
per week in the Sophomore year and four in the Junior. It is in- 
tended to be pre-eminently a practical course, consisting largely of 
laboratory work, in the investigation and verification of the laws of 

The recitation work will cover the toj^ics treated in Ganot's 
Physics, or some other text-book of equal rank, and will be supple- 
mented by lectures on the various branches of the subject. 

The division of the work is as follows : 

Sophomore Class. — Applied Mechanics and Dynamics. Gases, 
Liquids, and Sound. 

Junior Class. — Heat, Magnetism, Electricity, and Light. 

Senior Class. — Applied Electricity. 

This is an elective of eight periods per week, counting as four. 
Tn this the Junior work in Magnetism and Electricity is supplemented 
by the practical study of their application to the telephone, telegraph, 
dynamo, electric light, motor, transmission of power, etc. 

Work in the manufacture and use of these various appliances, as 
well as in the measurement of the electrical current, is accompanied 
by text-book work in Thompson's Dynamo Electric Machinery, and 
by reading and class discussion of current electrical journals. 
Visits to the electrical plants of the neighboring villages and cities are 
made at convenient times, for the purpose of studying the machinery 
in actual use. 

General Remarks on the Courses of Study. 

In arranging the courses of study, while recognizing the fact that 
the domain of human knowledge is so vast that he who would succeed 
best must confine his attention chiefly to some chosen field, we have 
endeavored not to lose sight of the equally important fact that those 
are best equipped for work in any particular department who have the 
most extended view of the realm of learning as a whole. 

To secure in a measure both these results, minor courses in many 
of the subjects of the curriculum are required of all; while the more 


extended courses in each subjeet are taken only by those whose taste 
and inclination lie in that particular direction. 

In pursuing this policy for several years, we have developed four 
distinct lines of study. In each of them are required those subjects 
which are essential to the logical and natural development of the 
course. The courses are as follows : 


The characteristic feature of this course is the study of Classical 
Antiquity, including the language and literature of the Greeks and 
Romans, with their art, philosophy, religion, and political and social 
history. Combined with this are courses in Modern Languages, 
Mathematics, and Science, with some elective subjects. While this 
course affords that broad culture which should be the foundation of any 
subsequent career, it may be made to afford special preparation for 
Law or Journalism by including electives in History and Political 
Economy, or it may be shaped in the direction of Medicine by 
choosing electives in Biology and Chemistry. This course leads to 
the degree of Bachelor of Arts. 


This course is arranged to provide a liberal education for those 
who do not wish to pursue the study of the ancient languages, nor to 
take all the science required in the Science Course. Its leading 
features are a liberal amount of English, French, and German, and 
of History and Political Science. It includes the amount of Mathe- 
mathics usually prescribed in a college course, with a fair amount of 
Science, and some elective subjects, including Latin. This course 
leads to the degree of Bachelor of Letters. 


The characteristic feature of this course is more extended instruc- 
tion in science than in the preceding courses, together with a fair 
amount of Mathematics and Modern Language study, including Eng- 
lish. The instruction in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology is of a two- 
fold character ; first, systematic treatment in experimental lectures ; 
secondly, practical work in the laboratories. Thus the student ac- 


(luires a familiarity, not only with the more important facts and 
fundamental i)rincipleH of those sciences, but also with the correct 
methods of work, so that his course may form a foundation for subse- 
quent higher work in any department of science. This course leads 
to the degree of Bachelor of Science. 


This course offers, in its various studies and exercises, a training 
which is believed to be well adai)ted to the needs of Civil and of 
Mechanical Engineers, as well as of the large class who are to be con- 
cerned with the material interests of the country, with manufacturing, 
with industrial pursuits, or with any of the many other occupations 
allied to Engineering. It embraces liberal and technical instruction 
in the mathematical, physical, and graphical sciences, and their 
applications, in practical field engineering, in the arts of design and 
construction, and in the use of tools, materials, and machinery, and 
in processes. The course leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science 
in Engineering.
