General Information 

The School 

grade boarding school for both sexes. It offers two years 
of college and four years of preparatory work, also 
courses in music, art, expression, and business. 


It is located at Williamsport, Pennsylvania, "The Queen City 
of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River," on the famed Sus- 
quehanna Trail, midway between Buffalo, New York, and Washing- 
ton, D. C. Statistics prove it to be the healthiest city in the State 
of Pennsylvania, and it is reported to be the third healthiest city in 
the United States. Williamsport is famous for its picturesque 
scenery, its beautiful homes, and the culture and kindness of its 
people. The Pennsylvania, the Reading, and the New York Central 
Railroads, with their fast trains, put it within two hours' reach of 
Harrisburg, four and a half hours of Philadelphia, and six hours 
of Pittsburgh. 


Williamsport Dickinson Seminary was founded in 1848 by a 
group of men of Williamsport under the leadership of Rev. Benja- 
min H. Crever, who, hearing that the old Williamsport Academy 
was about to be discontinued, proposed to accept the school and 
conduct it as a Methodist educational institution. Their offer was 
accepted and, completely reorganized, with a new president and 
faculty, it opened September, 1848, as Dickinson Seminary, under 
the patronage of the old Baltimore Conference. It was acquired 
in 1869 and is still owned by the Preachers' Aid Society of the 
Central Pennsylvania Conference of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, and is regularly chartered under the laws of the State of 
Pennsylvania. It is not a money-making institution. All of its

earnings as well as the generous gifts of its friends have been spent 
for maintenance and improvements. During a large part of its his- 
tory its curriculum covered the work now included in a high school 
course and at the same time included about two years of college 
work. By its charter it is empowered to grant degrees, which au- 
thority was for a time exercised. In 1912 it began to confine itself 
to the college preparatory field and continued in that field till 1929. 
After considering both the opportunity and the need of doing more 
advanced work, the Board of Directors at their meeting in October, 
1928, voted to continue the college preparatory and general 
academic work, and to add two years of college work, paralleling 
the freshman and sophomore years in a liberal arts college. These 
junior college courses are outlined herein and may be found on 
later pages of this catalogue. 

Grounds and Buildings 

The campus is located near the center of the City on a slight 
eminence, which causes the Seminary to be affectionately referred 
to as "the school upon the hilltop." Stately elms, maples, and trees 
of other variety add beauty and dignity to the campus and form an 
attractive setting for the imposing buildings. To the south and 
across the Susquehanna, within twenty minutes' walk, is the beau- 
tiful Bald Eagle Range of the Allegheny Mountains, affording a 
view of perennial charm. To the north are the Grampian Hills. In 
fact Williamsport, "beautiful for location," is seldom surpassed or 
equaled in its wealth of beautiful scenery. 

On the campus stand the buildings conveniently grouped. They 
are of brick and steel construction, heated by steam from a central 
plant, lighted by electricity and supplied throughout with hot and 
cold water and all modern conveniences. The rooms are large, airy 
and well lighted. 

The Main Building is an imposing structure of brick and occu- 
pies the central part of the campus. In this building are the ad- 
ministrative offices, dining room, chapel, school parlor, class rooms, 
and dormitories. There are hardwood floors throughout. 

"// you played your part In the world of men, 
The Critic will call it good." 

Bradley Hall is the Fine Arts Building. It was erected in 1895 
of red brick and is modern in construction. The splendid music 
studios and practice rooms, the art studios, and the library are here. 

The Service Building is also of red pressed brick and is a mod- 
em fireproof building. The basement and the first floor house the 
heating plant and the laundry. The second and third floors contain 
dormitories and are used for the boys of the Junior College. 

The G3nmnasium 

The new gymnasium, which was dedicated November 8, 1924, 
meets the needs for more adequate equipment in the department of 
Physical Education which was felt for a long time. 

The building itself is 110 ft. by 88 ft. 6 in., of semi-fireproof 
construction, and of beautiful design. The exterior is of red brick 
corresponding with Bradley Hall and the Service Building, with 
limestone and granite trimmings. A feature of the exterior archi- 
tecture is a balcony over the entrance portico. 

Entrance to the new building is through a pretentious vestibule 
flanked on either side with stairs of ornamental iron and marble. 
Leading from the entrance hall is a door to a retiring room for 
women, provided with ample toilet facilities. To the left is a room 
for the Physical Director and an examination room, from which 
point of vantage the entire gymnasium is under the personal super- 
vision of the Physical Director at all times. 

The basement includes a modern swimming pool 20x60 ft., 
equipped with a sterilization and filtration plant. The pool is con- 
structed of tile and is amply lighted, with large sash to the open air 
making a sunlit pool at nearly all hours of the day. 

There are also two bowling alleys of latest design with separate 
private rooms and showers for both home and visiting teams. Pro- 
vision for private dressing rooms and shower rooms for girls and 
women is made. 

The gymnasium floor proper is 90x65 ft. with a stage at the 
easterly end so that the main floor can readily be converted into an 

auditorium if need be, suitable for recitals and even more preten- 
tious productions. In every way the building is a center of athletic, 
social and cultural activities. 


The purpose of Dickinson Seminary is to prepare students for 
their life work in a homelike religious atmosphere at a minimum 
cost. In its Preparatory Department it fits its students for any 
college or technical school. For those who do not plan to go to 
college it offers exceptionally strong courses leading to appropriate 
diplomas. In the Junior College Department it aims to give two 
years of college work under the most favorable conditions, especially 
appealing to those who graduate from high school at an early age 
and who would like to take the first two years of college work un- 
der conditions affording more intimate personal contacts with the 
teachers and assuring personal interest and helpful guidance. It 
offers a large amount of college work in the form of electives to 
those whose college career will likely be confined to two years. 

A Home School 

The Seminary recognizes the fact that it is more than a school. 
It accepts responsibility for the home life of its students as well. 
Every effort is put forth to make the Seminary as home like as pos- 
sible. Here lasting friendships are formed, and memories are 
stored up to which they may, in future years, look back with affec- 
tion and pride. 

Cultural Influences 

The Seminary aims to develop in its students an easy familiarity 
with the best social forms and customs. Young people of both sexes 
meet in the dining hall, at receptions, and other social functions. 
These contacts together with frequent talks by instructors do much 
in this way for both girls and boys. Persons of prominence are 
brought to the school for talks and lectures, and excellent talent 
provides for recreation and entertainment. Courses of entertain- 
ment are provided by community organizations which bring the 


best artistic talent to the city. Students whose grades justify it 
are permitted and urged to take advantage of these opportunities. 

Religious Influences 

The Seminary is a religious school. It is not sectarian. At 
least four religious denominations are represented on its Board of 
Directors. Every student is encouraged to be loyal to the church 
of his parents. The atmosphere of the school is positively religious. 
Every effort is made to induce students to enter upon the Christian 
life and be faithful thereto. 

A systematic study of the Bible is required of all students. 
Regular attendance is required at the daily chapel service. Stu- 
dents attend the Sunday morning service at one of the churches in 
the city. On Sunday evening all attend a Vesper Service held in 
the school chapel. There is a weekly Prayer Service in charge of the 
College Pastor, a member of the faculty, or a visiting speaker. There 
are chapters of Young Men's and Young Women's Christian Asso- 
ciations that do active work in promoting the religious life of the 

Through the generosity of the late Honorable M. B. Rich, for 
eighteen years President of the Board of Directors, a Department 
of Religious Education has been established in the school, and the 
professor in charge of this department is also COLLEGE PAS- 
TOR and gives a large portion of his time in promoting a helpful 
religious atmosphere in the school and in personal interviews with 
students on matters of vital interest to them. 


It is aimed to develop in each student a sense of loyalty to the 
Seminary and a sense of fitness in his actions through the appeals 
of ideals and examples. Offenses are dealt with by the withdrawal 
of certain student privileges; while good work in class room and 
good conduct in school life are rewarded by special privileges 
granted only upon the attainment of certain levels of scholarship 
and deportment. 


It is understood that students entering Dickinson Seminary do 
so with the intention of making an honest effort to do satisfactory- 
work in every respect. Where a student is not able to conform to 
the school program, the parents or guardians are asked to withdraw 
the student from the school. 


Coeducation, properly administered, is both highly satisfactory 
and desirable. In a coeducational school where boys and girls asso- 
ciate under proper conditions and supervision their mfluences are 
mutually helpful. Boys become more refined and careful of their 
appearance and conduct. Girls learn to appreciate the sterling 
qualities of purposeful boys rather than the more flashy attractions 
of the fop when they are permitted to associate and compete with 
them in the activities of school life. 

The apartments of the girls are entirely separate from those of 
the boys. Proper supervision of the girls and boys is maintained 
at all times. 


The Faculty is composed of thoroughly trained, carefully se- 
lected Christian men and women. The two ideals they hold before 
themselves are scholarship and character. They live with the stu- 
dents, room on the same halls, eat at the same tables, and strive in 
every way to win their confidence and friendship. The Seminary 
aims to make the home and working conditions of the members of 
the faculty so pleasant they will be encouraged to do their very 
best work and look forward to years of pleasant and helpful service 
in the school. This policy has resulted in building up a faculty of 
which we are justly proud. 

Athletics and Physical Training (Boys) 

The object of this department is to promote the general health 
and the physical and intellectual efficiency of the students. Per- 
sistent effort is made to interest everybody in some form of indoor 
and outdoor sports. All forms of sane and healthful exercise are 


encouraged, but excesses and extravagances are discouraged. The 
athletic teams are carefully selected and systematically trained. 
They are sent into a game to win if they can, but more emphasis 
is placed upon playing the game fair and straight than upon win- 
ning. The Seminary is represented each year in inter-scholastic 
contests by football, basketball, baseball, track, and tennis teams. 
An excellent athletic field offers every facility for football, base- 
ball, tennis, and other out-door sports. 

Athletics and Physical Training (Girls) 

The aim of this work is the care and the development of the 
body by means of appropriate exercises. The results to be achieved 
are better health, good poise, and the overcoming of such physical 
defects as will yield to corrective exercises. A portion of the time 
each week is given to physical culture with the purpose that the 
body may become free and more graceful. The gymnastic exercises 
consist largely of floor work and include arm and leg exercises, 
dumbbell, wand and Indian club work. All the girls are given 
training in basketball according to girls' rules. 


A part of the new equipment to meet the enlarged program of 
the Junior College is the library. Commodious, well lighted, and at- 
tractive quarters conveniently located in Bradley Hall have been 
provided. The equipment is entirely new including steel shelving, 
quartered oak tables and chairs, desk, filing cabinet, etc. The more 
than six thousand volumes in the old library were carefully as- 
sorted, retaining four thousand volumes, to which new carefully se- 
lected reference volumes have been added and will continue to be 
added. A trained full time librarian and a full time assistant are 
in charge and every effort is made to train the student in an intel- 
ligent use of the library with its facilities. 

The James V. Brown Library is within two squares of the 
Seminary. Its large collection of books as well as its courses of 
lectures and entertainments are freely open to all students of the 


The Junior College 

The Board of Directors of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary 
at their fall meeting in October, 1928, decided to establish a Junior 
College Department with a desire to enlarge the scope of service 
and influence of the Seminary. This department offers the Fresh- 
man and Sophomore years of college work. It is not intended to 
interfere in any way with the excellent College Preparatory De- 
partment which the school has maintained from the beginning. The 
junior college work is organized on a separate basis. The college 
students room in separate dormitories and meet in separate classes; 
the faculty meets all of the standard requirements for college 
teachers, and the work is in all ways of a collegiate grade. 

The following considerations were taken into account in adding 
junior college work: 

In recent years the enrollment in institutions of higher learn- 
ing in Pennsylvania has increased rapidly, far above the average 
for the United States and without a proportionate increase in col- 
lege facilities. While a great many new high schools have been 
built and most communities have increased their high school facili- 
ties, few colleges have been established in the last fifty years. The 
lack in expansion and building equipment has resulted in over- 
crowding and limiting enrollment. 

Students are graduating from high schools at an early age. 
Crowding into the larger universities while so immature results in 
a large freshman mortality which every one, particularly the par- 
ents and young people themselves, would like to avoid. Attending 
a preparatory school after graduating from high school has its ad- 
vantages, but the scholastic work in that case is largely review while 
those who attend a Junior College get all the advantages of a 
boarding school and their scholastic work is of a collegiate grade. 

The Junior College offers many special advantages. Smaller 
classes, more frequent contacts with the professors, and larger op- 


portunity for self-expression are some of the most obvious advan- 
tages. Probably its chief justification is in helping every student 
to find himself before he enters into the larger life and freedom 
of the university. 

The Junior College was opened September, 1929, with an en- 
rollment of fifty students and with courses in Liberal Arts, Busi- 
ness Administration, and Secretarial Science. The standards for 
Junior Colleges set up by the Association of Colleges and Prepara- 
tory Schools of the Middle States were met from the beginning. 
Additions were made to the faculty, a full time Librarian was added, 
the Library and Laboratories were enlarged, new furniture and 
equipment were added. Thus the conditions necessary to do sat- 
isfactory college work were secured from the outset. New courses 
will be added and additional members of the faculty will be secured 
as the enrollment and demand justify. 

The Seminary's enviable record made through eighty years of 
educational effort in which the highest standards of scholarship and 
character have been maintained is the best guarantee that this new 
department will be maintained on the same high level, embodying 
the best of the old and the new in educational theory and practice. 

The Junior College graduated its first class June, 1931. All of 
these who made application were admitted to other institutions with 
advanced standing. Reports from these institutions at the end of the 
first semester indicate that all of these students were doing satisfac- 
tory work, making practically the same grades in the higher institu- 
tions which they maintained while students at Dickinson Junior 
College. This would seem to indicate that our graduates may be 
reasonably certain that they will be able to do successful work in any 
institution to which they may be admitted later. 

Junior College Curricula 

The Junior College offers the following courses leading to a 
diploma or a certificate: 

I. Arts and Science. 

This course comprises the first two years of a standard four-year 
course in a senior college leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of 
Science degree. 


II. General Course. 

This course is intended for students who do not look forward to a 
four-year college course or to advanced study. It aims to provide the 
essential intellectual background of an educated person, and to lay the 
foundations upon which may be built a solid structure of broad knowl- 
edge and good citizenship. 

III. Secretarial Science and Commerce and Finance. 

These courses are intended to furnish a fundamental business edu- 
cation in preparation for positions as secretaries and minor business 
executives. The Commerce and Finance Course also oflFers the studies 
in the first two years of a four-year college course in Commerce and 
Finance, leading to a Bachelor of Science degree. 

IV. Christian Workers' Course. 

The Christian Workers Course is intended primarily to fit yoimg 
women for positions as pastors' assistants. 

A yoimg woman, trained in secretarial duties, with courses in Bible 
and Religious Education and with training in Public Speaking, Dramat- 
ics and Pageantry will be able to give the pastor and church invaluable 

A yoimg woman with "gifts and graces" and with the training afford- 
ed by the above course will be a most valuable assistant to the overbur- 
dened pastor. She will find congenial employment and an opportimity 
for unselfish service. 

V. Art.* 

These courses are intended for (1) those who desire to major in 
art in the Fine Arts College of a university; (2) those who desire to 
pursue advanced study in an Art School; (3) those who do not intend 
to pursue a professional art career, but who desire training in general 
art for its cultural and practical value. 

VI. Music. 

The Junior College offers a two-year course in music paralleling 
the first two years of courses in a conservatory. 

For detailed statement of art courses see pages 54 and 55. 


Requirements for Admission 

Fifteen units of high school work are required for admission to 
the Junior College. Graduates of accredited high schools are ac- 
cepted on certificate. Students in the first three-fifths of their class 
are accepted without examination, others upon the basis of a satis- 
factory rating in an aptitude test. Listed below are the normal 
subjects required for entrance to the various courses:

also has a definite place in the curriculum. 

Full and complete courses are offered in Piano, Voice, Violin, Ear 
Training, Harmony, History and Appreciation of Music, Elemen- 
tary Theory, and Ensemble. All certificate and diploma students 
are required to do a certain amount of public recital work, and all 
other students are required to appear in private or public recitals at 
the discretion of the Director. The length of time necessary to com- 
plete any one course depends altogether on the ability and applica- 
tion of the student. All students in the Preparatory Music Course 
must give a group of at least three compositions in public in their 
senior year, and all students in the College Music Course must give 
a graduating recital in their final year of work. 

Two distinct courses are offered in music: (1) the Preparatory 
Music Course, which is a four-year course, designed to be conveniently 
taken along with the College Preparatory Course, or the General 
Academic Course, or the History and Literature Course (see page 
57) ; (2) the College Music Course, which combines in an excellent 
manner a detailed music course and a considerable amount of work 
in the Junior College. 

The College Music Course is a two-year course, and is open only 
to those students who present the same entrance qualifications as 


those who enter the regular Junior College work, namely, a high 
school diploma. In addition, it is understood that the student shall 
present musical qualifications equivalent to the Preparatory Music 
Course as outlined in this catalogue (page 57) with the exception 
of the theoretical work. A diploma in College Music is granted to 
a student who successfully completes the required work in the Col- 
lege Music Course as outlined in the catalogue below : 

The Music Department maintains a Choral Club, an Orchestra, 
a Band, and a String Ensemble. All Seminary students are eligible 
to these organizations.

Note: In the case of a student who possesses stifficient talent to pass 
the requirements in practical music as outlined in the Preparatory Music 
Course, but who has had no theoretical training, the student may take Har- 
mony I and Ear Training I in the first year of the College Music Course, 
and substitute Harmony II and Ear Training II for the Elective in the 
second year, though this will be allowed only in the case of a talented 
student, and depends entirely on the decision of the Director and the 
Music Faculty.

College Preparatory 

Courses of Study 

The Diploma of the Seminary will be awarded to the student 
who completes any one of the following courses: College Prepara- 
tory, General Academic, History and Literature, Regular Commer- 
cial, Piano, Voice, Violin, Expression, and Art. 

Students completing a course in one of the special departments 
but without the necessary academic requirements will be awarded 
a certificate instead of a diploma. 

The College Preparatory course offered by the Seminary covers 
the needs of those preparing for college and technical school. 

The minimum requirement for graduation in the College Pre- 
paratory course consists of fifteen and one-half units, three of which 
must be in English, and two and one-half of which must be in 
Mathematics. American History, one unit of Science, not less than 
two units each of two Foreign Languages or four of one Foreign 
Language and one-half unit in Bible must be included in the fifteen 

The General Academic course is not intended necessarily to pre- 
pare for college. The minimum requirement for graduation in this 
course consists of seventeen units, four of which must be in English, 
two in Foreign Language, one in American History and Civics, one 
in Science, one in Algebra, one in Geometry, and one-half unit in 

The minimum requirement for graduation in the History and 
Literature course consists of twelve units. Only those students who 
are graduating at the same time in Music, Art, or Expression are 
eligible to graduate in this course. 

A student in any course must have to his credit one semester of 
Bible, five periods per week. He must also have one year of Physi- 
cal Training for each year spent in Dickinson Seminary. 


A unit represents one year of work, thirty-six weeks, five forty- 
five-minute periods per week, except in the case of English and 
First and Second-year Algebra, in which cases only three-fourths 
of one unit is allowed for one year of work. 

Wherever elective subjects are listed in any course, it is the 
aim of the faculty to schedule a student in the way which will best 
train him or her for the particular college course or vocation to be

Emphasis will be laid upon thorougtiness of work. The faculty 
reserves the right to limit the number of studies which any pupil 
will be allowed to carry. 

Students who do not intend to pursue one of the regular courses, 
with the consent of their parents and the approval of the faculty, 
may elect such studies as they desire. 

At least two years of any language elected in any course will 
be required for graduation. 

For more detailed information, see Courses of Instruction. 

Certificates, with recommendation for admission to college, will 
be granted in any subject only to students who make a grade of 
at least 80%. 

Our certificates are accepted by all colleges accepting certifi- 
cates. A number of colleges are now admitting by certificates only 
those who rank in a certain section of their class, usually the first 


Courses of Instruction 


The material of the Old and New Testaments is presented in 
story form. The aim is to teach the content of the Bible rather 
than to treat it critically. However, evidences of growth in re- 
ligious thought will be pointed out. Memory passages, maps, and 
reports on special topics are required. Required for graduation. 

One semester. Five hours. 

The course will be offered each semester. 

Classical Languages 
The practical value of a study of the classics has often been 
questioned, but nothing has ever been found to take their place. 
The classics are still retained in the best courses of the best schools, 
and are pre-eminently adapted to bring the student to an acquain- 
tance with the sources of inspiration of all the literature of suc- 
ceeding periods. 


First Year: Careful study of simple Latin forms and construc- 
tions. Sight and prepared translation of connected Latin sentences. 
Prose composition. Vocabulary building. Study of simple English 
derivatives. Frequent reviews to fix the work. 

Second Year: Thorough and systematic review of First Year 
forms and constructions. Continued study of more difficult inflec- 
tions and principles of syntax. The readings are confined to easy 
stories, Roman history and biographies, the first semester, and to 
selections from Caesar, the second semester. Study of English 
derivatives continued. Prose composition. 

Third Year: Review of grammar of the First and Second Years. 
The readings are limited mainly to the select orations and letters of 
Cicero. Attention is directed to the style, personality, and influence 
of the author, and such phases of Roman life are studied as will 
lead to a better understanding of the Latin read. Prose composition. 


Fourth Year: Review of grammar of the previous years. The 
readings are confined to selections from Ovid and Vergil's Aeneid. 
Scansion is emphasized. Assigned readings in mythology. Con- 
tinued study of such phases of Roman life as will help the student 
better to understand the text read. 


The purpose of the work in English is to develop, as far as pos- 
sible, in every student, the ability to speak and write correctly. 
Representative classics of England and America are studied, along 
with the history of the literatures of the two countries. The sched- 
ule of English classics for college entrance requirements is followed 
throughout the four years. An attempt is constantly made to in- 
still a "feeling for language," and to inculcate some conception of 
style, and toward the end of the course interpretative criticism on 
the part of the students themselves is striven for. 

The four books of the "Literature and Life" series, by Green- 
law and others, are used throughout the course — one each year. Be- 
sides the classics from "Literature and Life" listed below for in- 
tensive study during the four years, all the introductions to the 
various chapters in the "Literature and Life" books, as well as 
practically all of the stories, essays, poems, etc., therein, are care- 
fully read. The chapter introductions to Books II and IV comprise 
brief, but comprehensive, histories of American and English Litera- 
tures respectively, and are stressed. 

Two pieces of written work are required of each student each 
week. Oral themes are required also from time to time. Each 
student, in addition to his regular class work, must read, and report 
on, four books each year. These books are selected with the ap- 
proval, or on the recommendation, of the teacher. 

First Year 

The work of the first year includes a thorough study of the 
functions of words, the sentence, and the paragraph. Attention is 
also given to oral expression as a basis for composition writing. 
For first practice frequent short themes are assigned. 

Classics for Intensive Study: Coleridge, The Rime of the An- 
cient Mariner; Homer, The Odyssey, Books VI-VIII, Bryant's 


Translation; Lowell, The Vision of Sir Launfal; Scott, The Lady 
of the Lake; Shakespeare, Julius Caesar; Stevenson, Treasure 

Second Year 

This course includes continued study and review of vocabulary, 
punctuation, paragraph structure; an introduction to the forms of 
discourse in themes ; forms for social and business letters ; practice 
in oral expression. Special credit is given for extra reading. 

Classics for intensive study: Scott, Quentin Durward or Ivan- 
hoe; Eliot, Silas Marner; selected stories from the works of Poe, 
Hawthorne, Hardy, Doyle, Kipling, and others; Stevenson, Travels 
with a Donkey; Burns, Tam O'Shanter ; Keats, The Eve of St. Agnes ; 
Byron, The Prisoner of ChUlon; Arnold, Sohrab and Rustum; Tenny- 
son, Enoch Arden and selections from The Idylls of the King; 
Shakespeare, As You Like It ; Goldsmith, She Stoops to Conquer. 

Third Year 

This course includes a continued review of the elementary work 
of the first two years, mentioned above, with increased emphasis 
upon the rhetorical principles of unity, coherence, and emphasis in 
the paragraph and the longer theme. The student makes practical 
application of the principles in themes, which receive detailed 
criticism from the instructor. Special credit is given for extra 

An intensive study is made of Shakespeare's Tempest, Franklin's 
Autobiography, Melville's Typee, and selections from the following 
authors: Bryant, Poe, Emerson, Hawthorne, Thoreau, Longfellow, 
Whittier, Holmes, Lowell, Lanier, Whitman, Bret Harte, Mark 
Twain, Hamlin Garland, O. Henry, Morley, Frost. 

Fourth Year 
A special effort is made in the fourth year to prepare the student 
adequately for Freshman English in college. The course includes 
a thorough review of the principles of grammar, composition, and 
rhetoric. Verse is studied intensively, and other types are given 
adequate attention. English literature, with an excursion into Amer- 
ican literature to study Emerson, is studied chronologically. Supple- 
mentary readings and reports are required. 


Classics for intensive study: Chaucer, The Prologue to the Can- 
terbury Tales; Everyman; Shakespeare, Macbeth; Bacon, Essays Of 
Studies, Of Truth, Of Wisdom for a Man's Self; Milton, Lycidas: 
Papers from the Spectator; Gray, Elegy Written in a Country 
Churchyard; Goldsmith, The Deserted Village; Macaulay, The 
Life of Samuel Johnson; Arnold, Wordsworth; Emerson, Manners, 
Self Reliance; Rosetti, The Blessed Damozel; Tennyson, A Dream 
of Fair Women. 

Students are required to fill in outline maps, to take notes of 
class work and to prepare reports on subjects assigned for indi- 
vidual investigation. Collateral reading of not less than five hun- 
dred pages is required. Current topics are emphasized in connec- 
tion with the history courses. 

I. Ancient History begins with a brief introduction of the 
Eastern nations, which is followed by a thorough study of Greece 
and Rome, to about 800 A. D., with special reference to their insti- 
tutions and permanent contributions to the modern world. 

II. Mediaeval and Modern History includes a review of the 
later Roman Empire, the rise of the Christian Church, the later 
mediaeval institutions, the beginnings of the modern age, as well as 
giving suitable attention to the rise of the modern states, European 
expansion, the development of free institutions, economic progress 
and social change. 

III. American History and Civil Government. One semester 
is given to each of these subjects. Texts used: An American His- 
tory, Muzzey; American Government, Magruder. 


Arithmetic. Arithmetic is completed in the Academic and Com- 
mercial courses. Standard Arithmetic, Milne. 

Algebra I. The four fundamental operations are thoroughly 
mastered, with special emphasis on inspection methods. The sub- 
ject is pursued through factoring, fractions, and simultaneous equa- 
tions. The large number of carefully graded written problems show 
both the value and interest of algebraic processes and develop the 
student's powers of applying principles to practical problems. 


Algebra II. A month is devoted to a thorough review of first 
year vpork. Intermediate work is completed through quadratics, the 
progressions, and the binominal theorem and logarithms, fully pre- 
paring the student for advanced work. 

Plane Geometry. A complete working knowledge of the prin- 
ciples and methods of the subject is aimed at, together with a de- 
velopment of the ability to give clear and accurate expression to 
statements and reasons in demonstration. A large amount of inde- 
pendent exercise of the reasoning powers is required. 

Solid Geometry. By emphasis on the effects of perspective, 
and by the use of models, the student is helped to a comprehension 
of figures and relations in three dimensions. The practical appli- 
cation to mensuration problems are a feature of the course. 

Plane Trigonometry. This course involves the solution of plane 
triangles by means of logarithms and the functions of the angles. 
Identities, equations, circular measure, derivation of laws and 
formulae are among the topics discussed. 

Romance Languages — French 

Courses are offered in French which fully prepare for college 
entrance. The aim is to give at least the beginnings of a real in- 
sight into the language and literature. As far as possible the lan- 
guage studied is made the language of the class room. Daily exer- 
cises in grammar, translation and composition are supplemented by 
frequent conversational exercises, the memorizing of standard 
poems, and class singing. French table. 

First Year 
"Junior French" — Mercier. "French Reader for Beginners" 
Pumpelly. Conversation. Pronunciation. Sight translation. Com- 
position. Poems memorized. 

Second Year 
"Le Tresor du Vieux Seignetir" — Robert. "Modern French 
Course" — Dondo. Conversation. Dictations. Sight translation.

han. One book to be read outside. Reading of French Newspapers. 
The language of the classroom is French during the course. 


The growing commercial relations between the United States 
and South America and the valuable literature and history found in 
the Spanish language, make the study of that language more and 
more desirable if not a necessity. We are, therefore, offering a 
two years' course in this subject. The aim will be to acquire as 
early as possible a ready use of the spoken language, and to meet 
the requirements for admission to the colleges, all of which now 
allow credit in Spanish for entrance. Spanish table.

Biology. This one-year course aims to give the proper perspec- 
tive to the student beginning the study of science. It seeks to ap- 
proach the study of life, especially in its simpler forms, with the 
idea of opening before the student the door to a true realization of 
the meaning of physical life and to an appreciation of its problems. 


Physics. One year is devoted to the study of Physics. The 
course includes four recitations and two hours of laboratory work 
per week. Forty experiments are performed, data recorded, and 
notes written up in the laboratory. Practical Physics, Carhart and 

Chemistry. The subject of Chemistry is pursued throughout the 
year, the course consisting of four recitations and two hours of la- 
boratory work each week. The course includes descriptive chemis- 
try, and a thorough and systematic treatment of the science with 
considerable emphasis put on the chemistry of modern life. Forty 
experiments are completed and written up in the laboratory. 

Commercial Courses 

The business world offers attractive and varied opportunities for 
those whose talents and inclinations fit them for its pursuits. It 
affords the biggest field in which education can be put to practical 
use, and it is the field which pays the highest immediate returns to 
those who possess initiative, ambition, and a careful business
