General Information 

The School 

lege preparatory and junior college courses for young 
men and women. It provides facilities for both day school 
and boarding students offering two years of college and four years 
of preparatory work, including 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. Williamsport is famed for its picturesque scenery, its 
beautiful homes, and the culture and kindness of its people. The 
Pennsylvania and the Reading Railroads, with their fast trains, and 
the Lakes-to-Sea and the Greyhound Buses 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 patron- 
age of the old Baltimore Conference. It was acquired in 1869 and 
is still owned by the Preachers' Aid Society of the Central Pennsyl- 
vania Conference of the Methodist Church, and is regularly char- 
tered 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 history 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 authority was for a time exercised. In 1912 
it began to confine itself to the college preparatory field and contin- 
ued 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 pre- 
paratory 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 school 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 beautiful 
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 admin- 
istrative offices, class rooms, and dormitories. There are hardwood 
floors throughout. 


Bradley Hall 

Bradley Hall was erected in 1895 of red brick and is modern 
in construction. It furnishes dormitory facilities for members of 
the faculty and the girls of the Preparatory Department. The li- 
brary and the dramatic studio are here. 

Eveland Hall 

The Service Building is also of red pressed brick and is a modern 
fireproof building. The basement and the first floor house the heat- 
ing plant and the laundry. The second and third floors contain 
dormitories and faculty apartments. 

The Gymnasium 

Williamsport Dickinson is fortunate in having a splendid new 
Gymnasium, dedicated November 8, 1924, which is a popular center 
of physical, social, and cultural activities. The building is 110 ft. 
by 88 ft. 6 in., beautifully designed and of semi-fireproof construction. 

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 and 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 pretentious 
productions. In every way the building is a center of athletic, social, 
and cultural activities. 

Athletic Field 

Built partially on the site of the old athletic field, the new field 
runs north and south beginning directly behind the gymnasium and 
dining hall and extending to the terrace just off Washington Boule- 


vard on the north. Ample room is provided for tennis courts, foot- 
ball field, and baseball diamond. 

New bleachers have been erected which accommodate 1,000 
people. They are of steel and concrete foundations on which have 
been placed wooden seats. The rear wall is of an attractive brick 
construction surmounted with a wrought iron fence. The entire 
athletic field is surrounded with the six-foot steel fence. Each 
section iron is topped with a steel acorn. Evergreens and honey- 
suckle bushes line the inside of the fence. 

The Clarke Memorial 

This new chapel and dining hall, which has been made possible 
by the bequest of Miss Martha B. Clarke of the Class of 1862 as 
a memorial to her brothers and herself, is designed in the Colonial 
Style, and is of fireproof construction. With proper attention hav- 
ing been given to acoustics, the chapel proper provides facilities 
for devotional services, assemblies, dramatics, concerts, and lectures. 
It is planned, with the balcony, to seat six hundred. 

The dining hall, on the first floor, is arranged with separate 
entrances and with coat rooms and wash rooms for girls and boys. 
It opens on a terrace overlooking the campus and athletic field. 
Effort has been made to produce a comfortable, home-like room. 
Either table service or cafeteria service is available. 

Modern methods of heating and air-conditioning are used, and 
careful attention is given to illumination and to design of lighting 

The erection of this building fits into the plan of an attractive 
quadrangle, and other improvements extend the open campus to 
Washington Boulevard. 

Fine Arts 

The buildings on the extreme northern portion of the campus on 
Washington Boulevard facing the campus, provide a modern home 
for the President and a well-equipped Fine Arts Building, for 
Music and Art. The new Art Studio takes the full northern sweep 
on the second floor of the building. Also on that floor are a number 


The Gyinnasinin 

of private practice studios and conference rooms for members of 
the faculty. On the main floor of the building there are three large 
studios and several smaller rooms for practice purposes. The in- 
terior walls are finished in light buff and the floors in oak. There 
is a total of eighteen rooms in the new building which is devoted 
entirely to Fine Arts. 


The purpose of Williamsport Dickinson 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 under conditions afford- 
ing 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 

Williamsport Dickinson 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 homelike 
as possible. 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 

Williamsport Dickinson aims to develop in its students an easy 
familiarity with the best social forms and customs. Young men and 
women meet in the dining hall, at receptions, and other social func- 


tions. These contacts together with frequent talks by instructors do 
much to develop poise and social ease. Persons of prominence are 
brought to the school for talks and lectures, and excellent talent pro- 
vides for recreation and entertainment. Courses of entertainment 
are provided by community organizations which bring the best artis- 
tic talent to the city. Students whose grades justify it are permitted 
and urged to take advantage of these opportunities. 

Religious Influences 

Williamsport Dickinson 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 students. Reg- 
ular attendance is required at the daily chapel service. Students 
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 Associations 
that do active work in promoting the religious life of the school. 

The John Wesley Club is composed of students preparing for the 
ministry or other forms of religious work. Through regular meet- 
ings and deputation teams they gain valuable training and experience 
in religious work. 

Through the generosity of the late Honorable M. B. Rich, for 
eighteen years President of the Board of Directors, a Department of 
Religion has been established in the school, and the professor in 
charge of this department is also COLLEGE PASTOR 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 
School 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. 

Certain phases of the discipline in the dormitory lives of the 
students are supervised and regulated by two student government 
organizations, one chosen by the boys and one chosen by the girls. 
The officials of these groups are elected at frequent intervals. Thus 
the students are presented the opportunity of learning how to be 
governed, through accepting temporarily the responsibility of gov- 
erning others. 

It is understood that students entering Williamsport Dickinson 
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 influences are 
mutually helpful. Boys become more refined and careful of their 
appearance and conduct. Girls learn to appreciate the sterling 
qualities of purposeful boys 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 selected 
Christian men and women. The two ideals they hold before them- 
selves are scholarship and character. They live with the students, 


room on the same halls, eat at the same tables, and strive in every way 
to win their confidence and friendship. Williamsport Dickinson 
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. Intramural athletic games between groups of 
students not members of varsity teams encourage athletic activities 
on the part of all students. 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 a fair game than 
upon winning. Williamsport Dickinson is represented each year 
in interscholastic contests by football, basketball, baseball, and 
tennis teams. An excellent athletic field offers every facility for 
football, baseball, tennis, and other outdoor sports. During the 
winter months the tennis courts on the campus are flooded provid- 
ing an opportunity for skating. 

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 be- 
come free and more graceful. Gymnasium work largely takes the 
form of games in swimming, bowling, basketball, and other floor 
work, with attention to those needing special corrective exercises. 
Outdoor activities include archery, hockey, tennis, skating, hiking, 
and horseback riding. 


Bradley Hall Entrance 

Edward James Gray Metnorial Library 


The Dr. E. J. Gray Memorial Library 

The library is playing an increasingly important part in any 
educational program today. Recognizing this, Williamsport Dick- 
inson completely reorganized its library with the beginning of its 
Junior College program. Commodious, well lighted, and attractive 
quarters conveniently located in Bradley Hall were provided. The 
equipment is entirely new, including steel shelving, quartered oak 
tables and chairs, desks, filing cabinets, etc. The more than six 
thousand volumes in the old library were carefully assorted, retain- 
ing four thousand volumes, to which new volumes have been added 
bringing the total to eleven thousand. New volumes are added 
each year. The majority of the new volumes are directly related 
to the various departments of the Junior College. A very excellent 
list of reference works has been provided and an attractive group 
of books for general reading has been added in order to stimulate 
the interest of the students in books not directly related to their 
special interest. 

The library is in charge of a full time professionally trained 
librarian and a full time experienced assistant librarian, together 
with student help as needed. 

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


The Junior College 

The Junior College has become one of the most significant devel- 
opments in the field of higher education. The high school graduate 
usually needs to make new social contacts, to learn to accept respon- 
sibility, and to form systematic habits of study and of living. The 
Junior College offers these advantages in connection with college 
studies so that the student's educational progress is not retarded 
while these important habits are being established. 

The Junior College offers two types of courses: (l) those 
which are called terminal, that is, complete educational units in 
particular fields; and (2) those which cover the first two years of a 
four-year college for those who desire to complete their degree re- 
quirements later. Both types of courses meet the highest college 
standards and afford both pleasant and desirable college experience. 

The development of the junior college is the result of an increas- 
ing demand for an individualized program in higher education, a 
program in which emphasis is placed on meeting the cultural and 
practical needs of the individual student. Instruction in small 
groups is offered in the place of mass education. At Williamsport 
Dickinson the student bridges the gap between high school and col- 
lege by easy, natural stages, each young man and woman being given 
a chance for self examination and experiment before definitely decid- 
ing upon the courses which will lead to his or her chosen profession 
or vocation. As the enrollment is purposely kept at relatively low 
figures, the faculty is able to become personally acquainted with each 
individual. Class groups are therefore small and permit of constant 
discussion and participation by each student in class problems. 

Experience has shown that many high school graduates are im- 
mature when they enter college, and fail to succeed because they are 
not able to cope with the freedom and responsibilities suddenly thrust 
upon them. The individualized program in practice at Williamsport 
Dickinson seeks to remedy this condition by personalized instruction 


and intimate social contacts. The problems of the student become 
the very real problems of the instructor who with his personal ac- 
quaintance with the pupil can guide his energies in the direction best 
fitted to his aptitudes and talents. Many noteworthy successes result 
from what otherwise would be failure. Too large a percentage of 
students who enroll in a four-year college, do not, for various reasons, 
remain in college until graduation. It is better for these students to 
enter a Junior College and complete the course, receiving a diploma, 
than to have the feeling of having dropped from college at a time 
when the work was only partially completed. The small size of the 
student group is a spur to greater participation in both scholastic 
and extracurricular activities developing thereby the qualities of 
both character and leadership. Thus the Williamsport Dickinson 
Junior College offers a well rounded and comprehensive program 
that not only prepares the student for his profession or vocation but 
for life as well. 

Recognition and Transfer Privileges 

Williamsport Dickinson Junior College is a member of the 
American Association of Junior Colleges, is accredited by the Uni- 
versity Senate of the Methodist Church, the Pennsylvania State 
Council of Education, and the Middle States Association of Colleges 
and Secondary Schools. Graduates from the Junior College are 
accepted with advanced standing by the leading colleges and uni- 
versities to which they apply for admission and usually make high 
scholastic records. 

Individual cases naturally depend on the student's preparation, 
the calibre of his work and the course which he desires to pursue. 
Upon registering at Williamsport Dickinson the student should fully 
acquaint the Dean with his future plans so that credit requirements 
of the college to which he plans to go may be anticipated in advance.

year terminal course in general business and in preparation for minor 
business executive positions. Those who plan a four-year college course 



in Commerce and Finance will be permitted to choose as their Freshman and 
Sophomore studies that combination of Arts and Science and Commerce and 
Finance subjects which best fits their particular needs. 

IV. Secretarial Science and Stenographic. 

The Secretarial Science Course is intended to furnish a fundamental 
business education in preparation for positions as secretaries and business 
executives. For those unable to spend the time necessary to qualify for the 
secretarial science diploma, the Stenographic Course is offered. This gives 
an intensive year of training primarily upon typewriting and shorthand. 
A Certificate of Graduation is awarded upon the successful completion of 
this course. 

V. Medical Secretarial. 

The purpose of the Medical Secretarial Course is to give, both from 
the scientific and business standpoint, a thorough foundation in the work 
needed to qualify the student for a position as a secretary and assistant 
in a physician's office. 

VI. Home Economics. 

The Home Economics Course is designed to meet the needs of two 
groups of students. First, by following the subjects suggested it becomes 
a Two- Year Homemaking Course for those students planning only two years 
of college work. However, the student who plans to transfer later to a 
four-year college will be permitted to elect that combination of subjects 
from the Home Economics and the Arts and Science Courses which will 
comprise the first two years of a four-year course leading to the degree of 
Bachelor of Science in Home Economics. 

VII. 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. 

VIII. Music. 

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

The more important benefits in the study of Spanish are these: 
direct communication with Spanish-speaking peoples, pleasure read- 
ing for wholesome leisure, aid in commerce and business, improve- 
ment of mental discipline and culture, aid in research, promotion of 
peace and good-will, better understanding of English, and a neces- 
sary preparation for radio announcing. 

Dr. L. S. Rowe, Director of the Pan-American Union, says in 
part: "In reality the study of Spanish is essential to the further 
development of true Pan-Americanism. Without it, we cannot hope 
to proceed very far in the path of mutual understanding between the 
nations of America which is so essential to the peace and prosperity 
of this continent." 

Two years of Spanish is recommended for all students majoring 
in a commerce course.

A Junior College diploma will be awarded to students who satis- 
factorily complete two years of art work plus English, Bible, and 
Physical Education in the freshman year; History and Appreciation 
of Art, an academic elective, and Physical Education in the sopho- 
more year. 

The aim of the art course is to give the student thorough training 
in artistic creation; to guide in developing taste and power of dis- 
crimination in general aesthetic appreciation; to give preparation 
for entrance into various fields of professional art work; to give 
practical training which may be put to immediate or future use in 
the business world; and to create a desire for research in the great 
art periods of the past. Care is taken not to interfere with indi- 
viduality but to develop the student's own latent abilities. 

A well-balanced and practical art course is provided by dividing 
the time devoted to art subjects as follows: Sixty per cent to draw- 
ing, twenty per cent to design, and twenty per cent to color. This 
work is taught through different subjects, which naturally somewhat 


Drawing is taught through anatomy, cast, costume life, still life, 
perspective, and composition. 

Design is taught through block printing, costume design, plant 
analysis, pen and ink, textile design, poster design, and interior 

Color is taught through portrait, posters, textiles, interiors, oils, 
water colors, pastels, and plant analysis. 

A course in the History and Appreciation of Art (Art 11-12) is 
given one hour weekly throughout the year with one hour of credit 
each semester. It involves a study and analysis of the architecture, 
sculpture, painting, and minor arts produced from prehistoric times 
to the present day. 

The work of the year must be left for exhibition during com- 

While encouragement is given to the development of individual 
aptitudes, the first year's art work for all students is practically the 
same and is as follows: 

First Year 

Prerequisite Course 

First year subjects required of all students working toward a 

Drawing from cast and costume life, painting in water colors 
from still life and flowers, fundamental principles of design as 
related to decorative and commercial art, lettering, free-hand per- 
spective and theory and practice of color harmony. If there is a 
demand, work will be offered in clay modeling and leather tooling. 
Students with a taste for art not yet suflSciently defined to justify the 
choice of a profession will find this a suitable foundation for later 

Second Year 

In the second year, students will specialize in one of the follow- 
ing courses: Illustration, Commercial Art, Costume Design, or In- 
terior Decoration. 



Advanced painting in oils and water colors from landscape and 
from life. Original illustrations from given subjects submitted

The highest standard of musical excellence and artistic worth is 
maintained in every branch of the musical work at Williamsport 
Dickinson. Special attention is called to the advantages attendant 
upon pursuing a course of study in a regular and fully equipped 
school of music. Private and public recitals are frequently held, in 
which the students take part. Instrumental and vocal ensemble 
work also has a definite place in the curriculum. 

A two-manual electric Everett Orgatron with chimes is main- 
tained for organ lessons and practice. The arrangement of the stop 
tablets, the expression pedal, the grand crescendo pedal, the con- 
cavity and radius of the standard 32-note pedal clavier, the angle 
of the keyboards, the overhang of the keys and the distance between 
the manuals of this instrument is like a pipe organ. The console of 
the Orgatron is designed to conform to the specifications set up 
and approved by the American Guild of Organists and the Royal 
College of Organists (Great Britain). 

The entire music department, except the orgatron, is housed in 
the new Fine Arts Building, opened in 1940. 

Full and complete courses are offered in Piano, Voice, Violin, Ear 
Training, Harmony, History and Appreciation of Music, 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 complete any one 
course depends altogether on the ability and application of the stu- 

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, (see page 64) ; (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 64) 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 College 
Music Course as outlined in the catalogue on subsequent pages. 

The Music Department maintains a Choral Club, a Double Male 
Quartette, a Chapel Choir, an Orchestra, and a String Ensemble. All 
Williamsport Dickinson students are eligible to these organizations.

College Preparatory 


Students may be enrolled in the Preparatory Department at any 
time and will be placed in those classes to which their previous aca- 
demic record justifies admission. 

Courses of Study 

The Diploma of the Seminary will be awarded to the student who 
completes any one of the following courses: College Preparatory, 
General Academic, Piano, Voice, Violin, or 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 Prepara- 
tory 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 and Government, one unit of Science, not less than 
two units each of two Foreign Languages or four of one Foreign Lan- 
guage and one-half unit in Bible must be included in the fifteen and 
one-half units. 

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 Government, 
one in Science, one in Algebra, one in Geometry, and one-half unit 
in Bible. 



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

A unit represents one year of work, thirty-six weeks, five fifty- 
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 pursued. 

Emphasis will be laid upon thoroughness 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.

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 religious 
thought will be pointed out. Memory passages, maps, and reports 
on special topics are required. One semester required for gradua- 
tion. Optional for non-Protestants. 


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 de- 
rivatives 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. 



Two pieces of written work are required of eacli 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. Atten- 
tion is also given to oral expression as a basis for composition writing. 
For first practice frequent short themes are assigned. 

Second Year: This course includes continued study and review 
of vocabulary, punctuation, paragraph structure and introduction to 
the forms of discourse in themes; forms for social and business let- 
ters; practice in oral expression. Special credit is given for extra 

Third Year: This course includes a continued review of the ele- 
mentary 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 de- 
tailed criticism from the instructor. Special credit is given for extra 

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

Fifth Year: This special course in English is designed pri- 
marily for high school graduates who desire a general review of the 
principles of grammar, composition, and rhetoric before beginning 
the study of English in college. Thorough drill is given, with spe- 
cial attention to the needs of the particular group. 



I. Ancient History begins with a brief introduction of the East- 
ern nations, which is followed by a thorough study of Greece and 
Rome, to about 800 A. D., with special reference to their institutions 
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 is treated in a topical manner, emphasiz- 
ing the development of the principal movements and forces leading 
to contemporary problems. Historical events from the age of dis- 
covery to the present are analyzed in an effort to gain a better under- 
standing of America today. 

IV. American Government is offered the second semester only. 
In this course both the present structure of government and the 
problems of democracy are studied. The duties and responsibilities 
of intelligent citizenship are given special attention. 


Algebra I. This course meets the requirements for elementary 
algebra according to College Board requirements, through quadratic 
equations solved by factoring. 

Algebra II. A month is devoted to a thorough review of first 
year work. 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 devel- 
opment of the ability to give clear and accurate expression to state- 
ments and reasons in demonstration. A large amount of independent 
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 applica- 
tion to mensuration problems is 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 for- 
mulae are among the topics discussed. 

Mathematics Review. A course presenting a thorough review of 
the first two years of algebra together with plane geometry. It is 
intended for those students having credit in these subjects but who 
desire additional preparation for college mathematics. 


First Year: Conversation. Pronunciation. Sight translation. 

Second Year: Conversation. Dictation. Sight translation. 
Pronunciation. Composition.

Public Speaking 

The department offers a regular one year's course in Public 
Speaking. Class instruction is given four periods per week and 
credit for this work is allowed in all regular courses. 


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. 

Chemistry. The subject of Chemistry is pursued throughout the 
year, the course consisting of four recitations and two hours of lab- 
oratory work each week. The course includes descriptive chemistry, 
and a thorough and systematic treatment of the science with consid- 
erable emphasis put on the chemistry of modern life. Forty experi- 
ments are completed and written up in the laboratory. 


First Year: Essentials of Spanish grammar, including a good 
basic vocabulary, drills on everyday idioms and expressions, easy 
readings, special verb studies. 

Second Year: More rapid reading, review of grammar, dicta- 
tions, and special exercises. 

Previous to 1939, Spanish was given either eight or ten times per 
week. Thus First Year Spanish was completed during the first 
semester and Second Year Spanish was completed during the second 
semester. This practice has been discontinued for the above. 


A diploma in preparatory art will be awarded to students who 
satisfactorily complete two years of art work. Thirty class periods 
a week for two years are required to obtain a diploma. The sub- 
jects taught are the same as those given in the Junior College Art 
department (see pages 47-49), except that no work in the academic 
departments of the school is required. 

The introductory work during the first year is practically the 
same for all students, although individual abilities and aptitudes are 
encouraged. (The prerequisite course is not required of those who 
wish special work not leading to a diploma). In the second year, 
the student may choose his own field of specialization from the 
following courses: Illustration, Commercial Art, Costume Design, 
Interior Decoration. For a description of the prerequisite and elec- 
tive courses (see pages 47-49). 


Private Lessons 

Private lessons in oral expression are planned to meet the needs 
of the individual student. Special attention is given to problems of 
voice and diction, interpretation of dramatic selections and platform 
deportment in all its phases. 


A Diploma in Preparatory Music is granted to a student who 
completes the required work in the Preparatory Music Course as 
described below in the catalogue. The candidate must have com- 
pleted our College Preparatory Course, or the General Academic 
Course, or its equivalent. Any candidate having completed the work 
in the Preparatory Music Course, but who does not have the equiva- 
lent of a high school diploma, will be granted a Certificate in Pre- 
paratory Music. All students in the Preparatory Music Course must 
give a group of at least three compositions in public in their 
senior year. 

Any student, whether he takes up the study of theory or not, may 
take lessons in the practical subjects, Piano, Voice, and Violin, 
thereby getting the benefit of study with systematic supervision. 
Such students are not eligible, of course, to any diploma in music, but 
will be listed as "special students in music."

Special Information 

Any young person of good moral character may enter Williams- 
port Dickinson at any time of year for a single semester or longer. 

Applicants must bring a certificate of work done and recommen- 
dations from the schools previously attended, or from former instruc- 
tors, or other responsible persons. 


It is the endeavor of Williamsport Dickinson to create a homelike 
atmosphere of good fellowship in which study and recreation are 
pleasantly blended to achieve a maximum amount of progress without 
an excess of restrictive disciplinary measures. However, a certain 
number of regulations are naturally essential to the smooth running 
of an organization the size of Williamsport Dickinson. The school 
regulations, in addition to those which are given here, are published 
in the form of a hand book, which will be furnished to each student 
upon matriculation. These regulations have evolved from the exper- 
iences of many years which have shown that Williamsport Dickinson 
has a group of students of unusually high calibre, the majority of 
whom have a definite goal in life. Student government and self dis- 
cipline are encouraged by the school authorities as exerting a definite 
influence upon the building of good character and good citizenship. 

Students from a distance are required to live in the building, but 
those having near relatives residing in Williamsport are sometimes 
granted permission to make their homes with them. 

Students will find it much easier to grasp the work and get a good 
start for the school year if they plan to arrive on the first day of the 
semester and remain until the last day. 

Absences from classes at the beginning or end of holiday recesses 
count double and will only be excused for very special reasons. 

It is suggested to parents that they should not call their children 
home during the semester as any absence interferes with good work. 

As students are responsible to Williamsport Dickinson en route to 
and from school, they are expected to report at the Seminary imme- 


diately upon arriving in Williamsport. Williamsport Dickinson ex- 
pects each student to maintain the honor of the school by such con- 
duct as becomes a lady or a gentleman. 

Students should be sparingly supplied with spending money, in- 
asmuch as the tuition and board take care of all ordinary expenses. 
If it is so desired, a member of the faculty will act as patron, 
paying weekly such allowances as may be designated and supervis- 
ing all expenditures. 

Students should place money and valuables in the school safe. 
The school is not to be held responsible for money or valuables not 
placed therein. The students are expected to keep the doors of 
their rooms locked at all times. 

No firearms of any kind are allowed in the buildings. 

Students in residence at Williamsport Dickinson are not permit- 
ted to maintain automobiles at the school or in the city, except 
for special reasons, and on permission from the President or the 
Dean, nor are they permitted to hire or leave the city in automobiles 
without special permission. 

Rooms at Williamsport Dickinson are thoroughly furnished. A 
comfortable bed, pillows, pillow slips, sheets, blankets, and counter- 
panes are furnished. One 50 watt bulb is supplied for each room. 
For each additional light socket in the room the student will be 
charged $2.50 each semester. The student should bring the follow- 
ing: 4 table napkins, 2 laundry bags, 1 pair of slippers, shoe pol- 
ishing outfit, 1 clothes brush, 1 bath robe, 6 face towels, 4 bath 
towels. The school supplies two double blankets. If students wish 
more than this number they should bring them. Every article of 
clothing that goes to the laundry should be plainly marked with the 
student's full name with THE BEST INDELIBLE INK THAT 
CAN BE PURCHASED or with name tapes. 

Teachers and students remaining at Williamsport Dickinson dur- 
ing the short vacations will be charged $1.50 for each day or part of a 
day. Parents or guardians visiting pupils are the guests of the Semi- 
nary for the first twenty-four hours. Other guests may be enter- 
tained if permission is secured from the President. Their student 
hosts are expected to pay the regular rates for their entertainment.

In all special departments one-half of the regular semester 
charge and special fee are due and payable on the opening date of 
the semester, or the day on which the student enters. The balance 
of the semester bill with extras is due for the first semester on No- 
vember 17, and for the second semester on April 7. 

Students are subject to suspension if bills are not paid within 
ten days of the dates mentioned unless ample security is furnished. 

No deduction is made for absence except in prolonged and 
serious illness or other unavoidable providence, when the price of 
board (not tuition, room, etc.) is refunded. No deduction is made for 
the first two weeks or the last three weeks of the year or the term. 

No payment or any part of the same will be refunded in the 
case of a student who withdraws on account of homesickness or 
other unnecessary cause since the school is unnecessarily inconveni- 
enced and disturbed by such withdrawal. 

Music, Art, and private lessons in Expression when taken in 
connection with a regular course cost extra. 

For extra service, such as meals served in rooms, additional 
laundry work, private instruction outside the class room, et cetera, an 
extra charge is made to both students and faculty. 

In order to graduate and to receive a diploma or certificate a 
student must have spent at least one year in study at the Seminary 
and also have paid all his bills, in cash or its equivalent — not in notes.

The Seminary reserves the right to withdraw any discount from 
a student whose work or behavior is unsatisfactory. 

No discount is allowed on Music, Art, and private lessons in 
Expression whether taken as extra subjects in connection with a 
regular course or whether the student is majoring in one of these

please note that our corporate name is The Williamsport
