The Legislature of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in the act 
under which the Trustees of the New Bedford Textile School were in- 
corporated, gives as the purpose of the incorporation that of establish- 
ing 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 acquiring the theory as well as the practice of 
cotton manufacturing in all its details, from the raw cotton to the fin- 
ished 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 em- 
ployed 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 spe- . 
cial lines of work, and become more efficient workmen. The courses of 
instruction for these two classes of students are given fully on other 
pages of this catalogue. 

The whole of the machinery in the school is absolutely modern, beine 
constructed especially for the school. It is all high grade, has la* 


improvements, and is especially built to afford facilities for all kinds 
of experimental work, and represents all the leading types of ma- 
chines from the best builders in the United States, and several English 

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 ma- 
chines and methods than could be found in any one manufacturing 

Each instructor in the day school is a man who is thoroughly con- 
versant 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 

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 mem- 
bers, the Commissioner of Education, ex officio, fifteen appointed by 
the Governor of the Commonwealth, and two, the Mayor and the Super- 
intendent 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 11,243, the number graduated, 3,104. 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 knowledge 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 there- 
fore conveniently situated for non-resident pupils who take up a tem- 
porary 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 3,492,478, and looms, 56,249; and employees, 39,670. 

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 man- 
ufacture of fine shirtings, muslins, lawns, sateens, lenos, checks, piques 
and other fancy fabrics to an extent unknown elsewhere. New Bed- 
ford's great advantage in this respect can be attributed principally to 
the fact that her mills are nearly all of recent construction, with the 
mo3t 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 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 man- 
ufacturing 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 school is housed in two separate buildings connected by a tunnel 
in the basement and by covered bridges overhead. They are con- 
structed 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, respec- 
tively, 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 situated 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 base- 
ment, 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 lec- 
ture rooms of various sizes, has a thoroughly equipped chemical lab- 
oratory, dyeing and finishing rooms, engineering laboratories, a com- 
modious machine shop, drafting rooms, a designing room especially 
fitted, an exhibition room, and an assembly hall that will seat 400 

Both structures are of the slow-burning mill construction type, ap- 
proved 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-protect- 
ing mills. Great attention has been paid to the planning and arranging 
of these buildings for the school, to make them suitable for the pur- 
poses 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 com- 
pany, 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 Com- 


pany, the Bahnson Humidifier Company and the Parks-Cramer Com- 
pany have installed complete humidifying apparatus. The whole equip- 
ment is approved by the Massachusetts State inspectors of public build- 


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

General Cotton Manufacturing. 

Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing. 


Carding and Spinning. 

Circular 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 tex- 
tile manufacturing and allied establishments. 

The advantages of these courses to qualify men to hold responsible 
positions 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 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 ac- 
quired 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, 
superintendents, assistant superintendents, designers in mills and com- 
mission 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 ap- 
plications are constant for men of the school — more than can be sup- 
plied. 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 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 
Principal, 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 prepara- 
tion, 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. 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, de- 
signing and analysis are continued. Practical work in the machine 
shop is entered upon the second year. 

Dyeing is begun the first year, the work being such as is of special 
interest to the student of cotton manufacturing. The student is also 

A OCf?QCi 

given instruction in steam engineering during the second year, while 
in .the third year, work in electrical engineering and cotton mill con- 
struction is offered. The study of color is taken up during the third 

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 impor- 
tance to call for a separate diploma course, extending over three school 

























years. Since the major subjects in this course are confined to design- 
ing, cloth analysis and weaving, the work is somewhat more inten- 
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 con- 
tain designs similar to those being studied in the designing lessor. 

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 lenos, are studied, both in designing and 
analysis, while much of the work in the weave room consists of put- 
ting original designs into the looms and weaving a short length of 

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 design- 
ing in both the designing and weaving departments. During this year 
the subject 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 complete.

Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing Course 

The object of this course is to give to the student a thorough knowl- 
edge of the chemistry of the textile processes involved in the manu- 
facture 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 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 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 reference to the major subjects, and are considered very im- 
portant, as they give the student a first-hand knowledge of the con- 
struction 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 success- 
fully completed a scientific course in high school or its equivalent. 
Any one, however, who can show by examination his ability to profit 
by the instruction given is admitted.

tion in the engineering courses, are given in a series of lectures. Prac- 
tical problems illustrating these principles are worked out in the class- 
room. 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 stu- 
dent 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. 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, geomet- 
rical constructions, orthographic and isometric 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. 

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 pur- 
pose 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 de- 
vices, 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 cut- 
ting 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 ma- 
chines, 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 stand- 
ard as given during the 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 
necessary 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 en- 
gines, apparatus and equipment in the laboratory. Exercises consist 
in adjusting, starting and running engines, taking and working out in- 
dicator 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 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 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 construc- 
tion in general. The choice of location and the methods of transmit- 
ting 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 com- 
plete mill is taken for an illustration, and the reports of both the ex- 
pense and production are used to work with. 

181. General Chemistry 

This course comprises three lectures of one hour each and nine and 
one-half 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 ar- 
riving at conclusions and neatness 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 considerable time in chemistry in other schools are given ad- 
vanced 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 required to take general chem- 
istry 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 laboratory, and one hour in the lecture and reci- 
tation room. 

Textbook: Smith's "Elementary 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 fol- 
lowed by the preparation of several salts and industrial products, sub- 
stances being selected that are of particular interest to the textile in- 
dustry. 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' lab- 
oratory 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 ma- 
terials 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 re- 
quiring one term for its completion. Stress is laid on the accuracy and 
integrity necessary for quantitative work. Each student is required, 
under supervision of the instructor, to adjust his own balances, and cali- 
brate the weights, burettes, flasks, etc., that he uses, that he may under- 
stand the nature and amount of error in his work, thus giving him confi- 
dence 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 

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 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 paraffines and their derivatives are ex- 
haustively treated. Then the study of the higher members is taken up, 
the unsaturated hydro-carbons and their derivatives. 

Textbook: Remsen & OrndorfFs "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 dye- 


stuffs are studied to determine their influence on coloring power, dyeing 
properties and fastness to light, acids, alkalis, bleaching, etc. In the lim- 
ited 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 w T ith a study of the chemical and physical tech- 
nology 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 lec- 
tures laboratory experiments are carried out by the performance 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 

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 mer- 
cerizing, 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 consid- 
ered 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 print- 
ing style, the steam style, or metallic or tannin mordants, resist and dis- 
charge 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. During the entire course 
the student accumulates many 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.

commercial size lots of knit goods and hosiery. Lectures describing the 
various 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 dyeing. 

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 ac- 
quainted 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 lim- 
ited 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 labora- 
tory. 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 applica- 
tion 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 applica- 
tion, is discussed in lectures. The laboratory work consists of the 
analysis of typical compounds, obtained from the consumers when 
possible. The detection of the various starches and fibers by the micro- 
scope is taught, and their separation and estimation by chemical meth- 
ods. 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 appearance and construction of the fabric. Simple methods of 
distinguishing between 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.

ing the work in detail, muitigraphed, and sold to the students at cost. 
These, with design books, design pads, color supplies 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 30 and 31. 

Students enrolling in the regular 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 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 held three nights a week, — Monday and Tuesday, from 7 to 
9.30, and Thursday, from 7.15 to 9.15.

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 benefitted by the instruction offered. 


















Day Students. — No tuition fee is charged day students who are resi- 
dents of Massachusetts. For non-resident students the fee is $150 a 
year, payable 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 ad- 
mitted to the classes until his tuition is paid. No fees are refunded ex- 
cept 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. 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, except first year Juniors, to be used for 
assisting in the maintenance of athletics in the school. 

All fees are due at the beginning of each school year. 

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 stu- 
dent 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. 


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 Sat- 
urdays. For sessions of evening classes see pages 29 and 30. 


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 
recitations, practical demonstrations and student's books, are taken into 
account in ranking students at the end of each year and for graduation. 
Unsatisfactory progress necessitates the student repeating his studi» 

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 certifi- 
cate if they honorably and satisfactorily complete the course of instruc- 
tion scheduled. 

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 ex- 
amined 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 gen- 
tlemanly 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 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 damage 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 sufficient. 

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


New Bedford is unusually desirable as a residential city, and stu- 
dents 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 $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 sup- 
plies 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 me- 
chanics; 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 


The school has an athletic association, and the students participate 
actively in various sports and games. The school is equipped with a 


gymnasium, locker room and shower baths. 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. 
For fee for same see page 33 of this catalogue.

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 examina- 
tion of the records of the students' progress throughout their studies, 
which are recorded and reported upon by the instructors and kept per- 
manently on file.

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 ac- 
quainted 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 stu- 
dent to grasp more readily the essential points, since the parts are much 
more readily accessible. 

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