New Bedford Textile School. 

THE SCHOOL AND ITS PURPOSE. 

The Legislature of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in the act under which 
the Trustees of the New Bedford Textile School were incorporated, gives as the 
purpose of the incorporation that of establishing and maintaining a textile school 
for instruction in the theory and practical art of textiles and kindred branches of 
industry. 

As New Bedford is primarily a cotton manufacturing city, this school confines 
itself principally to instruction in the cotton branch of the textile industry, and seeks 
to perfect itself in this line. Its course of instruction is arranged to subserve 
the interests of two general classes of students: (1) day students, — those who 
give their whole time for two or three j^ears to acquiring the theory as well as the 
practice of cotton manufacturing in all its details, from the raw cotton to the 
finished fabric, and also have instruction in the scientific principles which underlie 
the construction of the machinery and its operation, and the artistic principles 
which are involved in the production of desirable and ornamental fabrics; (2) 
evening students, — those who are employed in the mills during the day and who, 
by attending the Textile School evenings, are able to learn other phases of the 
industry from that in which they are employed, or to perfect themselves in their 
special lines of work, and become more efficient workmen. The courses of instruc- 
tion for these two classes of students are given fully on other pages of this cata- 
logue. 

The whole of the machinery in the school is absolutely modern, being con- 
structed especially for the school. It is all high grade, has latest improvements, 
and is especially built to afford facilities for all kinds of experimental work, and 
represents all the leading types of machines from the best builders in the United 
States, and several English builders. 

There is no mill in which there is so large a variety of machinery as in the New 
Bedford Textile School. This consequently affords the student a better oppor- 
tunity to become acquainted with various machines and methods than could be 
found in any one manufacturing establishment. 



Each instructor in the day school is a man who is thoroughly conversant with 
the work of the department under his charge by thorough training and long experi- 
ence. Each one has charge of the work in his department at night also, assisted 
by experienced assistants from the mills, many of whom are graduates of this 
school. 

The school went into operation in the fall of 1899, and the first class was gradu- 
ated in 1900. The regular courses were one year in length for the first few years, 
but were afterwards increased to three years. Special shorter courses are given, 
however, for which certificates are granted. 

For nineteen j^ears the school was a semi-private institution, but supported by 
appropriations made each 3 r ear by the State and by the city of New Bedford. It 
was managed by a Board of Trustees, two appointed by the Governor of the Com- 
monwealth, two representing the city (the mayor and the superintendent of schools, 
ex officiis), and twenty organized under the general statute by which the school 
was founded, a perpetual body, with power to fill vacancies other than the four 
created for and representing the Commonwealth and city. 

On July 1, 1918, it became a State institution by an act amending the State Con- 
stitution. It is still maintained with appropriations made by the State and cfty. 

It is managed by a Board of Trustees consisting of eighteen members, the Com- 
missioner of Education, ex officio, fifteen appointed by the Governor of the Com- 
monwealth, and two, the mayor and the superintendent of schools, ex-officiis, 
representing the city. Most of the trustees are men who either are or have been 
connected actively with the manufacture of cotton textiles. 

The number of individual students attending the school since its opening is 
8,923, the number graduated, 2,631. Many evening students who attend regularly 
do not take the examinations, and therefore do not appear as graduates, though 
they may have had a good record as students, especially in practice. This shrink- 
ing from examinations is natural, for many of them have little or no command of 
English, or are not accustomed to examinations. 

A large number of those who do not appear as graduates, however, are benefited 
by the instruction given in the school, and have acquired a knowledge and skill 
that have enabled them to rise in the industry and improve their financial and 
social condition. 

THE LOCATION OF THE SCHOOL. 

The school is situated in the center of the city of New Bedford, Mass., on the 
main car line of the city, which connects the mill districts, and is readily accessible 
to mill operatives who attend the evening sessions of the school. It is near the 
residential part of the city, and is therefore conveniently situated for non-resident 
pupils who take up a temporary residence in the city. 

New Bedford is an especially suitable location for an institution of this char- 
acter. It is the largest cotton manufacturing city of fine yarns and fancy woven 
fabrics and novelties in the country. Its spindles number 3,571,254, and looms. 
54,017; and employees, 41,530. 

High-grade combed yarns are produced in New Bedford to a greater extent than 
in any other city, while the mills are engaged in the manufacture of fine shirtings, 
muslins, lawns, sateens, lenos, checks, piques and other fancy fabrics to an extent 
unknown elsewhere. New Bedford's great advantage in this respect can be attrib- 
uted principally to the fact that her mills are nearly all of recent construction, 
with the most improved and up-to-date equipment. The environment of these 
mills is in itself a benefit to the students who select the New Bedford Textile School 
as the institution in which to learn the mill business, as they have opportunity to 
observe their construction and operation, and to find emplo3 r ment in them during 
the long summer vacations and upon finishing their course in the school. 

New Bedford is within short distance of Hopedale, Whitinsville, Hyde Park, 
Providence, Pawtucket, Woonsocket, Taunton and other large cotton machinery 
centers. It is one of the healthiest of the manufacturing cities in the United States. 
Picturesquely situated on the extreme south shore of Massachusetts, it enjoys one 
of the mildest winter climates in New England, and thus offers peculiar residential 
advantages for non-resident students. 



THE BUILDINGS. 

The school is housed in two separate buildings connected l»v a tunnel in the 
basement and by covered bridges overhead. They are constructed of red brick 
with trimmings of Indiana sandstone. They are classified as the inachinery build- 
ing and the recitation building. . 

The first now comprises the original building, erected i,, [898 99, :iI1( | the fbal 
two additions, erected in the years 1901 02 and L905, respectively, and the latest 
addition 1922 and 1923. This building is 164 feel in Length, with an 
depth of 112 feet. It is three stories high, with basement under mosi of it, and 
contains a floor space of 59,600 square feet. In it are situated the admmwtra- 
tion offices, the power house and all the departments comprised in a cotton Nam 
and cotton doth mill. In addition, it has two large thoroughly equipped rooms 
for instruction in the art of knitting, both for hosiery and underwear, and a 
gymnasium. 

The recitation building was completed and occupied in the fall of 1011. It 
consists of a main building 108 by 93 feet 6 inches, three stories high, with a deep 
well-lighted basement under the whole of it, and contains 40,392 square feet of 
floor space. It also has an annex 68 feet 3 inches long by 19 feet 3 inches deep, 
one story high, with basement, and contains 2,634 square feet of floor space. This 
annex is used as an experimental laboratory and as a storeroom for chemical suj>- 
plies. 

The main building, besides being equipped with recitation and lecture rooms of 
various sizes, has a thoroughly equipped chemical laboratory, dyeing and finish- 
ing rooms, engineering laboratories, a commodious machine shop, drafting rooms, 
a designing room especially fitted, an exhibition room, and an assembly hall that 
will seat 400 persons. 

Both structures are of the slow-burning mill construction type, approved by the 
leading fire insurance associations and mill engineers, while the general equipment 
of the plant is also illustrative of the best methods of lighting, heating, ventilating, 
humidifying and fire-protecting mills. Great attention has been paid to the plan- 
ning and arranging of these buildings for the school, to make them suitable for the 
purposes of imparting textile instruction, and in order that the machinery building 
should give an object lesson in cotton mill engineering. 

The Legislature of 1922 appropriated $50,000 for an addition to the present 
machinery building, and the city of New Bedford appropriated $10,000 for the 
purchase of the land for the building. This building has now been completed and 
is partially equipped. Other improvements will be provided that will aid work- 
ing conditions and produce greater economy and efficiency in administration. 

Power and light are purchased from the local electric power company, and the 
school supplies its own heat and the steam needed in its finishing plant. The fire 
protection was designed and installed by the General Fire Extinguisher Company 
of Providence, R. I., the well-known Grinnell sprinkler being used. The American 
Moistening Company and the Bahnson Humidifier Company have installed com- 
plete humidifying apparatus. The whole equipment is approved by the Massa- 
chusetts State inspectors of public buildings. 

DAY CLASSES. 

The regular day courses of the school are as follows : — 

General Cotton Manufacturing. 

Chemistry, Dj^eing and Finishing. 

Designing. 

Carding and Spinning. 

Seamless Hosiery Knitting. 

Latch Needle Underwear Knitting. 

All the above courses are diploma courses, three years long, and are intended 
to qualify students to hold positions of responsibility in textile manufacturing 
and allied establishments. 

The advantages of these courses to qualify men to hold responsible positions in 



6 

cotton mills, dyeing and finishing plants, commission houses, etc., are many. These 
industries, as conducted, are not adapted to give a young man a technical educa- 
tion. The opposite is the case where the primary object is to impart knowledge and 
to train in the correct method of doing things. 

It is not expected that a young man, going from this school, will at once secure 
an executive position. It is expected, on the contrary, that he will begin in a more 
humble fashion, that with the knowledge acquired in the school and the experi- 
ence gained in the mill itself, he will be qualified to hold higher positions, and that 
his advancement will be much more rapid and his knowledge broader than one 
who has not had the school instruction and training. That such is the case is shown 
already by the positions now held by the graduates of the school. 

Many of them are occupying positions of trust and responsibility in the textile 
and allied industries as manufacturers, treasurers, agents, superintendents, assist- 
ant superintendents, designers in mills and commission houses, overseers, chemists 
and dyers, etc. Some have been called to good positions as designers directly from 
the school, and many who have attended the evening classes have so improved in 
skill and knowledge that they have advanced in position and earning power. 

That the work of the school is recognized by textile manufacturers and those 
engaged in allied industries is attested by the fact that applications are constant 
for men of the school — more than can be supplied. One of the largest bleaching 
establishments in the country has assured us that it is ready to take all the men 
from the chemistry and dyeing department that we will recommend. 

But this school does not agree to make successful men out of lazy, careless and 
indifferent boys, nor does it care for such boys as students. But for those who wish 
to learn, who are ready to work, who are willing to bide their time, it does offer an 
opportunity that will supply them with an honorable vocation, with many oppor- 
tunities for advancement in the world, with good remuneration. 

In case a prospective student feels that no one of the diploma courses meets 
his particular needs, he is requested to communicate with the principal, stating 
his wishes. Whenever possible, special courses will be given in the various de- 
partments, for which certificates will be granted, stating the subjects taken and 
the time given to them. The limitations of these special courses will be determined 
in every case by the management.

General Cotton Manufacturing Course. 

The course in cotton manufacturing is designed to give the student a thorough 
fundamental knowledge of the different processes entering into the construction 
of a piece of cloth from the raw staple to the finished product. 

During the first year the student takes up the study of yarn preparation, weav- 
ing, designing and cloth analysis. The study of mechanics, mechanical drawing 
and chemistry is also pursued the first year, the work in these subjects being de- 
signed especially for men who are to take up the cotton mill work. Practical work 
in the machine shop is entered upon the second term. Instruction in yarn calcula- 
tions, spooling, warping and slashing is also offered during the first year. 

In the second and third years sufficient time is given to instruction in picking, 
carding and spinning, while the subjects of weaving, designing and analysis are 
continued. 

Dyeing is begun the first year, the work being such as is of especial interest to 
the student of cotton manufacturing. The student is also given instruction in 
steam engineering during the second year, while in the third year, work in electrical 
engineering and cotton mill construction is offered. The study of color is taken 
up during the third year. 

The work in all subjects is so arranged that the student is taken gradually from 
the simpler to the more difficult problems. Much of the work in the last year is 
original, and the student is thrown on his own resources. 

The work in chemistry, dyeing, mechanics and shop practice is all arranged with 
special reference to the student of cotton manufacturing. 

This course is very thorough, and is always recommended to the student who is 
to make cotton cloth manufacturing his future work.

Designing Course. 

Designing is a branch of textile manufacturing of sufficient importance to call 
for a separate diploma course, extending over three school years. Since the major 
subjects in this course are confined to designing, cloth analysis and weaving, the 
work is somewhat more intensive than in the general course. 

The student, during the first year, takes up the study of the plain loom, the 
more simple designs and the analysis of such fabrics as contain designs similar to 
those being studied in the designing lessons. 

Instruction the first year is also offered in the preparation of warps for the loom, 
while work in the mechanical department is entered upon the first year, and ex- 
tends through all three years of the course. 

Instruction in the mechanical department is considered essential to the student 
of designing, as many of the new fabrics brought out by designers from year to 
year are based as much upon the mechanism of the loom as upon pure design. 

During the second year more advanced fabrics, such as double cloths, Bedford 
cords, piques and lenos, are studied, both in designing and analysis, while much 
of the work in the weave room consists of putting original designs into the looms 
and weaving a short length of each. 

Commencing with the first term of the second year, a practical course in color is 
offered the student, who is required to work out a series of color scales and apply 
them in coloring designs. 

In the second term of this year cotton sampling is introduced. 

The third year is largely devoted to the subject of Jacquard designing in both 
the designing and weaving departments. During this year the subject of com- 
mission house work, as it applies to the styling and finishing of new fabrics, is 
dealt with, and the student is given a close insight into the requirements of this 
branch of designing. 

For the student who wishes to perfect himself in the subject of cloth designing, 
as applied to the cotton trade, this course will be found very complete.

Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing Course. 

The object of this course is to give to the student a thorough knowledge of the 
chemistry of the textile processes involved in the manufacture of cotton cloth. 
To insure a perfect foundation, the first two years are devoted almost entirely to 
chemical subjects and laboratory work. During this period the subjects of gen- 
eral chemistry, inorganic and organic, are taught, the preparation and properties 
of various chemicals and dyestuffs, the properties of the various fibers, and the 
coloring of them. 

The third year is devoted almost entirely to the practical dyeing and finishing 
of cotton goods.' The best current practice is followed, but the underlying prin- 
ciples are thoroughly taught in order that the student maj^ understand the limita- 
tions and purpose of each process. 

The subjects of machine drawing, principles of mechanics, electricity and shop 
work are taught. These allied subjects are arranged with special reference to the 
major subjects, and are considered very important, as they give the student a 
first-hand knowledge of the construction of the various machines. 

The graduates of this course find employment with dyestuff makers and dealers. 
with manufacturers of chemicals used in dyeing, with blcacheries, dye hoi 
and finishing works.

Seamless Hosiery Knitting Course. 

The course in seamless hosiery knitting is adapted to the needs of those students 
desiring a thorough knowledge of the hosiery industry. 

The instruction given covers both the technical and practical parts of the business, 
including cost finding. 

A large part of the time is devoted to instruction work on the knitting machines. 

During the first year the student takes up the winding and preparation of cotton, 
lisle, wool, worsted and silk yarns for use on hosiery machines; also the principle 
of circular latch-needle knitting, and the setting and adjusting of different makes 
of rib-leg and rib-top machines. 

In the second and third years the time is given up to a study of the different 
makes of automatic hosiery machines, knitting men's half hose, ladies' hose, foot- 
ing children's and infants' hose, looping, welting and mending; method of han- 
dling and keeping track of goods through the mill; cost of manufacturing from 
yarn to the box. 

Instruction is also given in cotton yarn preparation, yarn calculations, cotton 
sampling, mechanics, steam engineering, chemistry and dyeing, the work in these 
different subjects being arranged to meet the special needs of the student. 

This course is recommended to those students who intend to become connected 
with a hosiery mill.

Latch Needle Underwear Knitting Course. 

The course in latch needle underwear knitting is adapted to those students in- 
tending to become connected with this branch of the textile industry. 

As in the case of the hosiery course, the larger part of the student's time is de- 
voted to instruction work on the knitting machines. Instruction is also given in 
cotton yarn preparation, yarn calculations, mechanics, steam engineering, cotton 
sampling, chemistry and dyeing. As is the case with all other courses offered, 
instruction in these correlated subjects is arranged best to meet the needs of each 
individual course. 

Both of the knitting courses are very thorough, and give the student a good 
working knowledge of the different processes and the machinery connected with 
the same. The knitting department of the New Bedford Textile School contains 
a larger variety of knitting machinery than is found in any similar school in the 
United States, and the courses offered in this department cannot fail to be of very 
great benefit to any one desiring knowledge along these lines.

given in a series of lectures. Practical problems illustrating these principles are worked 
out in the classroom. A study is also made of the strength and nature of the different 
materials used in machine construction. 

Textbook: "Practical Mechanics," Hale. 

172. Mechanical Drawing. 

The object of this course in mechanical drawing is to give the student a good founda- 
tion for reading drawings and for making such sketches and drawings as he will be likely 
to be called on to make in practice. Thoroughness, accuracy and neatness are insisted 
upon throughout the course. The work in mechanical drawing begins with instruction 
in the use and care of drawing instruments. The following is a general outline of the 
work to be covered: plain lettering, geometrical constructions, orthographic and isomet- 
ric projection, inking and tracing, standards, conventions and tabulation as used in 
the modern drafting room. Simple working drawings are to be made to scale, and the 
final work of the year consists of free-hand sketching of machine details from parts of 
textile machinery. This brings into use at one time all the work covered during the 
year, and serves as a test of the student's grasp of the subject. 



16 

173. Mechanism. 

In view of the large number of mechanisms used in textile machinery this course is a 
very important one. The subject is given by means of lectures and recitations, the 
work in the drawing room being closely related to the classroom instruction. This course 
includes studies and graphical solutions of cams, gears, etc. 

174. Machine Shop. 

Shopwork and drawing are organized as one department for the purpose of securing 
close correlation of the work. Many exercises are common to the drawing room and the 
shop. In the machine shop an effort is made, not only to train the student manually, 
but also to teach him correct shop methods and practice. Carefully graded exercises 
are arranged to teach him the use of measuring instruments, hand tools and then ma- 
chine tools. The different measuring tools and devices, with advantages, methods of 
use and limits of accuracy of each, are considered. Each cutting tool is taken up, its 
cutting angles and general adjustments are described, together with the "feeds" and 
cutting speeds suitable for each material worked and for each machine. The course 
includes instruction in centering, squaring, straight and taper turning and fitting, out- 
side and inside screw cutting, chucking, reaming, finishing and polishing, drilling, 
tapping, grinding, boring, planing flat and V surfaces, filing and gear cutting, including 
spur, bevel, rack and worm gears. 

When the student becomes proficient in handling the tools and machines, he is given 
work in fitting and assembling, and also repair work from the other departments. 

175. Machine Drawing. 

Machine drawing is a continuation of the mechanical drawing of the first year, and 
the work is dependent upon a thorough knowledge of how to apply the conventions of 
drawing which custom has made standard as given during the first year. The work 
consists of proportioning of machine details as fixed by practice, making assembly draw- 
ing from detailed sketches, and also detailing parts from assembled machines. 

176. Steam Engineering. 

A typical power plant, including the boiler, steam engine and all necessary auxiliary 
apparatus such as is found in a modern cotton mill, is studied in detail. Prepared out- 
lines are discussed in lecture periods, and the details supplied by the student after read- 
ing assignments in standard text and reference books. Practice is given in handling 
engines, apparatus and equipment in the laboratory. Exercises consist in adjusting, 
starting and running engines, taking and working out indicator cards, prony brake tests, 
pump and injector tests, etc. 

177. Elementary Electricity. 

The elementary principles of magnetism and electricity are taken up in lecture and 
recitation, and are supplemented by laboratory exercises. Emphasis is placed on the 
different wiring systems and electric drives as used in mills and factories. A general 
study is made of a typical electrical power plant, and of the apparatus required to gen- 
erate and distribute electrical energy. 

Textbook: "Essentials of Electricity," W. H. Timbie. 

178. Mill Engineering. 

Proficiency in this course depends on the thoroughness with which the work of the 
previous courses was carried on. The course consists of lectures supplemented by work 
in the drafting room. Problems in design, construction and equipment of mills and 
factories are taken up. The subject includes foundations, walls, floors, roofs and mill 
construction in general. The choice of location and the methods of transmitting power 
are discussed. The following outline shows the scope of the course: principles under- 
lying the design and construction of framed structures, involving the use of wood, steel, 
brick, stone, concrete and reinforced concrete, methods of lighting, ventilating and pro- 
tecting from fire. 

179. Figuring Costs. 

One and a half hours a week, during the last term of the general course, is devoted to 
methods of cost rinding in a cotton mill. A complete mill is taken for an illustration, 
and the reports of both the expense and production are used to work with. 

181. General Chemistry. 

This course comprises three lectures of one hour each and sixteen hours of labora- 
tory work each week. The laboratory work is closely criticized by the instructor, and 
individual effort encouraged. Careful manipulation, thoroughness in observation,

fundamental principles of the science are taught in connection with 
chemistry of the elements. 

No previous study of chemistry is required f<>r admission to bhu course, but 
instruction is so arranged that students having already spent considerable tin* 
chemistry in other schools are given advanced work in which the knowledge air. 
acquired is utilized. 

Textbook: Smith's "General Chemistry for College 

182. General Chemistry. 

The training afforded by a course in general chemistry is considered of value bo .-ill the 

students of the school, and also lays the foundation for the subsequent course is dyeing. 
Hence students taking courses in the cotton or knitting departments are required bo 
take general chemistry during the first term of the first year. This subject coven the 

same ground as subject 181, but in a briefer manner. Five hours per week arc spent 
in the laboratory, and one hour in the lecture and recitation room. 
Textbook: Morgan and Lyman's "Chemistry." 

183. Inorganic Preparations. 

The time in this subject is devoted largely to laboratory work, with an occasional 
explanatory lecture. First the student is taught the best methods of carrying on the 
usual laboratory operations, as forming of crystals, precipitates, filtering, evaporating 
and drying. This is followed by the preparation of several salts and industrial products, 
substances being selected that are of particular interest to the textile industry. The 
work is progressive in subject-matter, and so arranged as to be co-ordinate with the 
subject of general chemistry. 

191-192. Qualitative Analysis. 

This course comprises one lecture of one hour and twelve hours' laboratory work 
a week during the second term of the first year. The student is taught the principle 
of systematic qualitative analysis and the application of the principles to detect the 
base-forming elements, the acid-forming elements, and the various classes of com- 
pounds of the bases and the acids. Especial attention is paid to the inorganic materials 
ordinarily met with in the manufacture, dyeing and finishing of cotton piece goods. 
The student is required to analyze correctly a sufficient number of unknown substances 
to demonstrate his ability to detect any of the elements ordinarily met with. 

Textbook: Noyes' "Qualitative Analysis." 

202. Quantitative Analysis. 

The course in Quantitative Analysis is divided into two parts each requiring one term 
for its completion. Stress is laid on the accuracy and integrity necessary for quantita- 
tive work. Each student is required, under supervision of the instructor, to adjust his 
own balances, and calibrate the weights, burettes, flasks, etc., that he uses, that he 
may understand the nature and amount of error in his work, thus giving him confidence 
in his results. In connection with the course a thorough training in the solution of 
chemical problems is given. The course comprises one lecture each week, the remainder 
of the time being devoted to laboratory practice. The first term is spent in gravi- 
metric determination of chlorine, sulfuric, carbonic, and phosphoric acids, and iron, 
aluminum, calcium and magnesium. 

203. Quantitative Analysis. 

This course is a continuation of Course 202 and comprises volumetric analysis in- 
volving the use of acids, alkalis, oxidizing and reducing agents, and chlorimetry. The 
work on chemical problems is also continued through this term, the problems being 
such as to apply the principles of volumetric analysis. 

212. Organic Chemistry. 

This course is divided into two terms, the first term giving a general survey of the 
subject a thorough training being given in the reactions and properties of the various 
compounds met with in textile industries. The two lower members of the paraflincs 
and their derivatives are exhaustively treated. Then the study of the higher members is 
taken up the unsaturated hydro-carbons and their derivatives. 

Textbook: Remsen & Orndorff's "Organic Chemistry." 



18 

213. Organic Chemistry. 

The work of the second term is devoted exclusively to the study of dyestuffs and 
their preparation. The constitutions of various typical dyestuffs are studied to deter- 
mine their influence on coloring power, dyeing properties and fastness to light, acids, 
alkalis, bleaching, etc. In the limited time afforded, the number of dyestuffs studied 
is necessarily limited, but the training is made so thorough that the student is enabled 
to take up further investigation intelligently should his future work demand it. 

222. Textile Chemistry and Dyeing. 

These subjects open with a study of the chemical and physical technology of the 
fibers. Lectures are given descriptive of the action of heat, moisture, acids, alkalis, 
oxidizing agents, reducing agents, salts, organic ferments and coloring matter upon the 
fibers. Parallel with these lectures laboratory experiments are carried out by the per- 
formance of which the student becomes familiar with the chemical and physical prop- 
erties of the various fibers and the actions of the several agents upon them. 

This is followed by a series of lectures and experiments that illustrate the application 
of the above principles to practice. The student is taught how to scour cotton, wool 
and silk; how to bleach these fibers by the use of sulphur dioxide, chlorine compounds 
and oxygen compounds. The mercerizing, fireproofing and waterproofing of cotton, 
the chlorination of wool, and the waterproofing of silk are also demonstrated. 

Now the application of the dyestuffs to the various fibers is studied. For convenience 
the dyestuffs, whether of natural or synthetic origin, are classed as either substantive, 
acid, basic or mordant. The best method of application of each of the above groups 
is then taught. The dyed fibers are tested for their fastness to light, water, acid, alkalis, 
milling, stoving, chloring, crocking and hot finishing. Modified methods are then con- 
sidered for the production of especial degrees of fastness to certain agents by after- 
treating of the dyed fibers. 

223. Dyeing. 

This course is supplementary to the course in textile chemistry and dyeing and con- 
sists principally in the application of dyes to cotton and practice in color matching. 
Lectures are given as the occasion requires, but most of the time is spent in the labora- 
tory. 

At the end of the course the general principles of cotton matching are taken up, and 
experimental work is carried on demonstrating the proper method of obtaining a given 
shade by mixing several dyes. Obtaining the value of a dye is taught, and the detection 
of adulterants. Finally, methods for determining the dye, either in the form of a dye- 
stuff or on the dyed fabric, are considered. 

The lectures during this term are mainly descriptive of the converting of gray cotton 
piece goods into the finished state. Machinery used in connection with the processes 
of singeing, bleaching, scouring, mercerizing, ckying, mangling, dyeing, starching, 
tentering and calendering is explained. The effect of each machine upon the properties 
of the fabric is studied. Some time is devoted to the consideration of the use of starches, 
filling agents, soap and oil, and the filling, softening and stiffening action they produce. 
The student is required to take notes during these lectures, and from such notes write 
for his own reference a complete text on the subject. In this connection he is encouraged 
to consult various standard works to amplify his knowledge of textiles. 

Samples acquired in connection with the laboratory practice are mounted and bound 
with the above notes, which they serve to illustrate. 

224. Dyeing. 

The laboratory work of this term is mainly devoted to the printing of textile fabrics, 
especial emphasis being laid on cotton. The theory and practice of the various styles, 
such as the pigment style, the direct printing style, the steam style or metallic or tannin 
mordants, resist and discharge dye styles, the developed azo style, the printing of indigo 
and similar dyestuffs and aniline black, are studied. The student makes as many different 
prints as the time will allow. The course is concluded by experiments illustrating the 
practice of mercerizing cotton fabrics and a study of the various functions of the various 
stiffening and softening agents used to produce the different finishes required by the 
trade. The lecture course during this term covers practically the same ground as the 
laboratory work, especial emphasis being laid on the mercerizing and finishing of cotton 
yarns and cloth. During the entire course the student accumulates several thousand 
samples which he is required to mount in a specially designed sample book for his refer- 
ence in the future. Special stress is laid on quality rather than quantity of work done. 
As often as time permits and circumstances demand it, lots of yarn, hosiery, etc., of 
commercial size are dyed by the students for other departments.

taught to operate the machines, but are given an opportunity to examine them at rest, 
and later to observe them in operation. 

233. Textile Chemistry I. 

This subject comprises a study of the properties and analysis of water, coal, oil, soap, 
mordants and other chemicals used in the textile industries. One lecture of forty-five 
minutes' duration is given each week, and frequent conferences are held with the 
student in the laboratory. The student is required constantly to consult standard 
books of reference in connection with his laboratory work. While the limited time 
devoted to this course does not give enough time for the student to make many complete 
analyses, it does illustrate to him the application of the knowledge acquired in the 
previous subjects of qualitative and quantitative analysis and organic chemistry. 

234. Textile Chemistry II. 

This subject deals with coal, oil, soap, water, starches, sizing and softening compounds 
and textile fabrics. The commercial methods of obtaining the above substances, their 
usual composition and application, is discussed in lectures. The laboratory work con- 
sists of the analysis of typical compounds, obtained from the consumers when possible.

vance in two equal installments, — at the opening of the fall term and at the end 
of the first semester. No student shall be admitted to the classes until his tuition 
is paid. No fees are refunded except by special action of the Board of Trustees. 

The above fee includes admission to any of the evening classes in which there is 
accommodation, and which the day students may desire to attend. 

A deposit of $10 is required of all day students taking the regular Chemistry 
and Dyeing Course. A deposit of $5 is required of students taking chemistry in 
connection with any other course. This deposit is to cover the cost of any break- 
age that may occur, but in case the actual breakage exceeds this amount an addi- 
tional charge is made. Any unexpended balance is returned at the end of the year. 
To non-resident students a further charge of $10 for chemicals is made. 

Students are required to supply themselves with such books, tools and materials 
as are recommended by the school, and pay for any breakage or damage that they 
may cause in addition to the above-named fee. A fee of $3 is charged each day 
student, to be used for assisting in the maintenance of athletics in the school. 

Evening Students. — No tuition fee is charged evening students. Students en- 
rolled in the Chemistry and Dyeing Course are required to make a deposit of $5 
for breakage. In case the breakage caused by any student does not equal the 
amount of his deposit, the balance is returned to him at the close of the school year, 
but if the breakage is in excess of this deposit, the student is charged the additional 
amount. Evening students are required to supply themselves with such books and 
materials as are recommended by the school, but this charge is small.

at the end of each year and for graduation. Unsatisfactory pi 
the student's repeating his studies. 

Diplomas are given on the satisfactory completion of a COUI 
over a period of three years in connection with each course, if the studi 
is otherwise satisfactory. 

Students taking special courses, in most cases, are entitled to a certificate if I 
honorably and satisfactorily complete the course of instruction scheduled. 

Day students are required to spend as much time daily out of school hours in 
study, such as recording lectures and other note-, as may be necessary to maintain 
proper standing. The students' books are examined by the instructors periodically, 
and the care and accuracy with which they are kept is considered in ranking 
students. 

CONDUCT. 

Students are required to conduct themselves in an orderly and gentlemanly 
manner while in attendance at the school. When the conduct of any student is 
considered by the Principal of the school detrimental to its best interests, he will 
be suspended by him and the case reported to the Board of Trustees for action. 

Any student who presents at any time work as his own which he has not per- 
formed, or tries to pass an examination by dishonorable means, shall be regarded as 
having committed a serious offence. 

Students shall exercise due care in the use of the school apparatus and machinery. 
All breakages and accidents must be reported at once to the instructor in charge, 
and the student will be held liable for any wilful damage or the result of gross 
carelessness. 

ATTENDANCE. 

Day students taking the regular courses are required to attend every exercise of 
the school; special students, every exercise called for by their schedules. For every 
case of absence or tardiness students must present an excuse to the Principal. A 
certain number of unsatisfactory excuses will render the student liable to suspensii »n 
and further action if cause is sufficient. 

When the attendance of an evening student is unsatisfactory he will render 
himself liable to be dropped from the school. 

BOARD AND ROOMS. 

New Bedford is unusually desirable as a residential city, and students will find 
numerous houses of private families and boarding houses where they may obtain 
room and board. 

No requirements are made as to residence of out-of-town students, although 
facilities are given by having addresses of suitable houses on file at the school. 

No definite estimate can be made of the cost, as this depends entirely on the 
tastes of the student, but board and room may be obtained for from 812 per week 
upwards. 

TOOLS AND MATERIALS. 

Students are required to purchase such materials, textbooks, tools and apparatus 
as may be required from time to time by the school authorities, or make dep 
on such as are loaned to them. The supplies required vary with the courses tor 
which the students enter, the cost being from $15 to $25 per year. 



28 

LIBRARY. 

The school maintains a library that contains all the best works on carding and 
spinning, weaving, designing, knitting, dyeing and mechanics; also a consulting 
encyclopedia and an international dictionary. Catalogues and pamphlets dealing 
with machinery or processes related to textile work are also on file, as are all the 
leading textile journals and trade papers. The students have access to the library 
during school hours. 

ATHLETICS. 

The school has an athletic association, and the students participate actively in 
various sports and games. There are several athletic fields open to the students 
for their outdoor sports. The management of the school will give all reasonable 
encouragement and support to the furtherance of healthful recreation and manly 
sports for its students.
