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 years to acquir- 
ing 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 pro- 
duction 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 

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 improve- 

ments, 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 
opportunity 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 experience. 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 
graduated 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 years the school was a semi-private institution, but supported 
by appropriations made each year 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 Commonwealth, 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 Constitution. It is still maintained with appropriations made by the 
State and City. 

It is managed by a Board of Trustees consisting of eighteen members, the 
Commissioner of Education, ex officio, fifteen appointed by the Governor of 
the Commonwealth, 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 10,732, the number graduated, 2,927. 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 shrinking 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 
benefitted by the instruction given in the school, and have acquired a knowl- 
edge and skill that have enabled them to rise in the industry and improve 
their financial and social condition. 


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 
character. It is the largest cotton manufacturing city of fine yarns and fancy 
woven fabrics and novelties in the country. Its spindles number 3,491,942, 
and looms, 56,148; and employees, 39,595. 

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 manufac- 
ture 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 attributed 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 institu- 
tion in which to learn the mill business, as they have opportunity to observe 
their construction and operation, and to find employment 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 


The school is housed in two separate buildings connected by 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 
machinery building and the recitation building. 

The first now comprises the original building, erected in 1898-99, and the 
first two additions, erected in the years 1901-02 and 1905, respectively, and 
the latest addition 1922 and 1923. This building is 164 feet in length, with 
an average depth of 112 feet. It is three stories high, with basement under 
most of it, and contains a floor space of 59,600 square feet. In it are situ- 
ated the administration offices, the power house and all the departments 
comprised in a cotton yarn and cotton cloth 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 1911. 
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 supplies. 

The main building, besides being equipped with recitation and lecture rooms 
of various sizes, has a thoroughly equipped chemical laboratory, dyeing and 
finishing rooms, engineering laboratories, a commodious machine shop, draft- 
ing 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 gen- 
eral 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 planning 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. 

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, the Bahnson Humidifier 
Company and the Parks-Cramer Company have installed complete humidify- 
ing apparatus. The whole equipment is approved by the Massachusetts State 
inspectors of public buildings. 



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

General Cotton Manufacturing. 

Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing. 


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 posi- 
tions in 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 education. The opposite is the case where the primary 
object is to impart knowledge and to train in the correct method of doing 

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 experience 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, superin- 
tendents, assistant 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 hon- 
orable vocation, with many opportunities 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 Prin- 
cipal, stating his wishes. Whenever possible, special courses will be given 
in the various departments, 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, 
weaving, designing and cloth analysis. The study of mechanics, mechanical 
drawing and chemistry is also pursued the first year, the work in these 
subjects being designed 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 calculations, 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 special inter- 
est 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 extends 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 lenps, 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 sub- 
ject of commission 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

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 general chemistry, inorganic and organic, are taught, 
the preparation and properties of various chemicals and dyestuffs, the proper- 
ties 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 
principles are thoroughly taught in order that the student may understand 
the limitations 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 refer- 
ence 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 bleacheries, 
dye houses and finishing works. 

It is desirable that students entering this course shall have successfully 
completed a scientific course in high school or its equivalent. Any one, how- 
ever, who can show by examination his ability to profit by the instruction 
given is admitted.

machine construction. 

Textbook : "Practical Mechanics," Hale. 

172. Mechanical Drawing 

The object of this course in mechanical drawing is to give the student a 
good foundation for reading drawings and for making such sketches and 
drawings as he will be likely to be called on to make in practice. Thorough- 
ness, 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 iso- 
metric projection, inking and tracing, standards, conventions and tabula- 
tion 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 sketch- 
ing 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. 

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 machine 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, outside 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 tha first year. The work consists of proportioning of machine details 
as fixed by practice, making assembly drawing from detailed sketches, and 
also detailing parts from assembled machines. 

176. Steam Engineering 

A typical power plant, including the boiler, steam engine and all neces- 
sary auxiliary apparatus such as is found in a modern cotton mill, is studied 
in detail. Prepared outlines are discussed in lecture periods, and the details 
supplied by the student after reading assignments in standard text and 
reference books. Practice is given in handling engines, apparatus and equip- 
ment in the laboratory. Exercises consist in adjusting, starting and run- 
ning 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. Empha- 
sis 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 generate 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 lec- 
tures supplemented by work in the drafting room. Problems in design, 
construction and equipment of mills and factories are taken up. The sub- 
ject 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 underlying 
the design and construction of framed structures, involving the use of wood, 
steel, brick, stone, concrete and reinforced concrete, methods of lighting, 
ventilating and protecting 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 finding 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 laboratory work each week. The laboratory work is closely criticized by 
the instructor, and individual effort encouraged. Careful manipulation, 
thoroughness in observation, accuracy in arriving at conclusions and neat- 
ness are required of each student. The fundamental principles of the science 
are taught in connection with the descriptive chemistry of the elements. 

No previous study of chemistry is required for admission to this course, 
but the instruction is so arranged that students having already spent consid- 
erable time in chemistry in other schools are given advanced work in which 
the knowledge already acquired is utilized. 

Textbook : Smith's "General Chemistry for Colleges." 

182. General Chemistry 

The training afforded by a course in general chemistry is considered of 
value to all the students of the school, and also lays the foundation for the 
subsequent course in dyeing. Hence students taking courses in the cotton 
or knitting departments are require/! to take general chemistry during the 
first term of the first year. This subject covers the same ground as subject 
181, but in a briefer manner. Five hours per week are spent in the labora- 
tory, 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, pre- 
cipitates, filtering, evaporating and drying. This is followed by the prep- 
aration of several salts and industrial products, substances being selected 
that are of particular interest to the textile industry. The work is progres- 
sive 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 compounds of the bases and the acids. Especial 
attention is paid to the inorganic materials ordinarily met with in the man- 
ufacture, dyeing and finishing of cotton piece goods. The student is required 


to analyze correctly a sufficient number of unknown substances to demon- 
strate 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 requir- 
ing one term for its completion. Stress is laid on the accuracy and integrity 
necessary for quantitative work. Each student is required, under super- 
vision 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 gravimetric 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 involving 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 

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 paraffines 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." 

213. Organic Chemistry 

The work of the second term is devoted exclusively to the study of dye- 
stuffs and their preparation. The constitutions of various typical dyestuffs 
are studied to determine their influence on coloring power, dyeing proper- 
ties 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 experi- 
ments are carried out by the performance of which the student becomes 
familiar with the chemical and physical properties 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 mercer- 
izing, 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 
convience the dyestuffs, whether of natural or synthetic origin, are classed 
as either substantive, acid, basic or mordant. The best method of applica- 
tion 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 considered 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 consists 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 laboratory. 

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 dyestuff or on the dyed 
fabric, are considered. 

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 dye- 
stuffs 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 pro- 
duce the different finishes required by the trade. The lecture course during 
this term covers practically the same ground as the laboratory work, special 
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 reference 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.

processes are given, and the necessary calculations are taught in connection 
with this course. Scouring and bleaching are also taught. The student is 
required to make use of knowledge acquired in the previous courses in 

230. Cotton Manufacture 

Cotton Manufacture is the name assigned to a course of lectures given to 
the second year students in chemistry, so that they may become acquainted 
with the methods employed in the manufacture of cotton yarn and cloth. 
The various machines are thoroughly described and the methods of using 


them discussed in the lecture room. Because of the limited amount of time 
allowed for this subject the students are not 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 soften- 
ing compounds and textile fabrics. The commercial methods of obtaining 
the above substances, their usual composition and application, is discussed 
in lectures. The laboratory work consists of the analysis of typical com- 
pounds, obtained from the consumers when possible. The detection of the 
various starches and fibers by the microscope is taught, and their separation 
and estimation by chemical methods. Sizing and loading of fabrics is also 
discussed. This course is very practical in its application, and accurate 
work is required. 

235. Finishing of Cotton Fabrics 

The object of this course is to give to the designer a knowledge of the 
various methods used in finishing, and the effect of the same on the appear- 
ance and construction of the fabric. Simple methods of distinguishing be- 
tween different fibers and finishes, filled and pure starched cloths, are 
taught. The instruction is given by means of one lecture a week and two 
hours' laboratory practice.

books, design pads and notebooks, constitute the working material to be 
provided by students. 


Evening instruction, similar to the day, on the same machinery and by 
the heads of the day departments assisted by practical skilled men from the 
mills, is given for the benefit of workers in local mills and machine shops. 
The instruction in the evening classes is divided into sections so as to give 
the greatest possible facilities to the students in these classes. 

Certificates are granted to all students in the evening classes who have 
successfully completed the equivalent to two years' work, two evenings a 
week. The certificate states the subjects that the student has passed in, and 
the length of time he has devoted to the work. 

Evening students are enrolled at the commencement of both the fall and 
spring terms. The subjects taken up in the different evening courses follow 
the detailed topics as specified on pages 27 and 28. 

Students enrolling in the regular Chemistry and Dyeing Course are re- 
quired 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 end of the school year, but if the actual breakage 
exceeds this amount, an additional charge is made. 

The school is in session four evenings a week for twenty-four weeks, — 
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, from 7.30 to 9.15 for all classes 
except those taking the Chemistry and Dyeing Course. Those classes are

Applicants desiring to take up special studies in the school may be admit- 
ted, provided their applications are approved by the Principal. Such stu- 
dents shall be known as specials, and, upon satisfactory completion of their 
work in the school, shall be given certificates stating the work they have 
covered and the time they have been in attendance. 

No applicant is admitted to the regular courses of the school after the first 
four weeks unless he has already covered the work of the school for the time 
preceding the date of his application ; nor shall any change in any student's 
course be made after the first four weeks of admission except by permission 
of the Principal. 


The examinations for those desiring to enter the school at the opening of 
the fall term of 1926 will be held at the school only, on Wednesday, June 10, 
and on Friday, September 10, at 9 a.m. 

The detailed topics dealt with in the entrance examinations are as fol- 
lows : —

Candidates for admission to evening classes must be at least fourteen years 
of age. 

Those desiring to enter any of the courses in the various departments 
must satisfy the head of the department which they desire to enter that they 
have sufficient knowledge to be benefited by the instruction offered. 


Day Students. — No tuition fee is charged day students who are residents 
of Massachusetts. For non-resident students the fee is $150 a year, pay- 
able in advance 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 Chem- 
istry and Dyeing Course. A deposit of $5 is required of students taking 
chemistry in connection with any other course. A deposit of $2.50 is required 
of students taking converting. This deposit is to cover the cost of any 
breakage that may occur, but in case the actual breakage exceeds this amount 
an additional 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. Stu- 
dents enrolled 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 re- 
quired to supply themselves with such books and materials as are recom- 
mended by the school, but this charge is small. 


The school hours for the day classes are from 8.30 to 12 each morning 
except Saturdays, with afternoon sessions from 1.30 to 4.30 except Satur- 
days. For sessions of evening classes see page 27. 


Written examinations are held twice a year, and other tests from time to 
time to determine the standing of students in their work. 

The final examination is held at the end of the spring term. Results of 
these examinations, together with the student's marks recorded from reci- 
tations, practical demonstrations and student's books, are taken into account 
in ranking students at the end of each year and for graduation. Unsatis- 
factory progress necessitates the student repeating his studies. 

Diplomas are given on the satisfactory completion of a course of study 
extending over a period of three years in connection with each course, if the 
student's record is otherwise satisfactory. 

Students taking special courses, in most cases, are entitled to a certificate 
if they honorably and satisfactorily complete the course of instruction sched- 


Day students are required to spend as much time daily out of school hours 
in study, such as recording lectures and other notes, 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. 


Students are required to conduct themselves in an orderly and gentlemanly 
manner whilq 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 
performed, 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 dam- 
age or the result of gross carelessness. 


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 suspension and further action if cause is 

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


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, al- 
though 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 $12 
per week upwards. 


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 deposits on such as are loaned to them. The supplies required 
vary with the courses for which the students enter, the cost being from $20 
to $40 per year. 


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. 


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.

The National Association of Cotton Manufacturers offers a medal to be 
awarded each year to the student in the graduating class who shows the 
greatest proficiency in scholarship. This is determined by an examination 
of the records of the students' progress throughout their studies, which are 
recorded and reported upon by the instructors and kept permanently on file. 

The competition for this medal is open to all day students who graduate 
in the Complete Cotton Manufacturing Course, or to evening students who 
have completed studies comprised in that course and graduated therein. 
The association offering the medal has made it a condition of the award that 
at least four members of the graduating class be eligible to the competition. 


This medal is awarded to the member of the freshman class, taking the 
General Cotton Manufacturing Course, who ranks the highest in scholarship 
for the year. It is presented by Mr. Allen K. Remington, president of the 
Alumni Association, to commemorate the day of Mr. William E. Hatch's 
retirement from the presidency of the school. 


This medal is presented by Mr. Victor O. B. Slater, a graduate of the 
evening classes of the school, in memory of his father, Peter Slater, who was 
a loyal friend of the school. It is awarded to the student, graduating from 
the evening classes in Textile Design, who has attained the highest standing 
for the two-year course. 


The "Textile Colorist" of New York City has placed at the disposal of 
this school an annual sum of one hundred dollars for the purpose of encour- 
aging original investigations in the science of dyeing and similar treatments. 
This award is made to the student in the graduating class of the Chemistry, 
Dyeing and Finishing Course whose thesis based upon his personal researches 
and experiences indicates the greatest practical value to the dyeing, bleach- 
ing, finishing or textile printing industries. 



This department occupies nearly the entire first floor of the machinery 
building, and has approximately 9,000 square feet of floor surface. The 
equipment is large and diversified, enabling the students to become acquainted 
with practically all the leading makes of machines found in the carding or 
spinning departments of cotton mills. 

A special feature of the equipment is the large number of models of the 
principal parts of the different machines in this department. These models 
are so mounted that the different settings and adjustments can be made 
equally as well as on the machine itself ; and thus enable the student to 
grasp more readily the essential points, since the parts are much more readily 

The department is humidified by the system of the American Moistening 
Company, Bahnson humidifiers, the Parks-Cramer Company's Turbo Sys- 
tem and the American Air Purifying Company's portable humidifiers.
