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 

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 prac- 
tice 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 at- 
tending 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 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, being constructed 
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 repre- 
sents 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 ex- 
perience. 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 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 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 pow 7 er 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 

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 
14,819, the number graduated 4,542. Many evening students who attend regu- 
larly do not take the examinations, and therefore do not appear as graduates, 
though they may have a good record as students, especially in practice. This 
shrinking from examinations is natural, for many of them have little or no com- 
mand 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 school is situated in the center of the city of Xew Bedford, Mass., on the 
main car line of the city, which connects with the mill districts, and is readily ac- 
cessible 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 w T ho take up a temporary residence in the city. 

New 7 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 2,002,906; and looms, 42,877. 

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, marquisettes 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 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 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 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 build- 
ing 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 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 instruc- 
tion 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 con- 
sists 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 

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, 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. 

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 humidifying apparatus. The whole equipment 
is approved by the Massachusetts State inspectors of public buildings. 


The regular day diploma courses of the school are as follows : — 
General Cotton Manufacturing. 
Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing. 

Carding and Spinning. 
JCnit Goods Manufacturing. 

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 
cotton mills, dyeing and finishing plants, commission houses, etc., are many. 

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, 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. 

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 depart- 
ments, 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. Instruction in 
yarn calculations, spooling, warping, and slashing is also offered during the first 

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. 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 given instruction in steam 
engineering during the second year, while in the third year, work in elementary 
electricity and cotton mill construction is offered. Knitting and color are also 
given in the third year. Rayon is taken up in the second year and continued in 
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.

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 commis- 
sion 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 

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 general 
chemistry, inorganic and organic, are taught, the preparation and properties of 
various chemicals and dyestuffs, the properties of the various fibers, and the color- 
ing 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 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 com- 
pleted 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.

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 
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 drawr 
ing begins with instruction in the use and care of drawing instruments. The fol- 
lowing is a general outline of the work to be covered: plain lettering, geometrical 
constructions, orthographic and isometric projection, inking and tracing, stand- 
ards, 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 purpose of se- 
curing 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. Care- 
fully 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 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 con- 
ventions 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 drawing from detailed sketches, and also detailing parts from assembled 

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 engines, apparatus and equipment in the laboratory. Exer- 
cises 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 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 w r ork 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 underlying the design and construction of framed structures, in- 
volving 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 de- 
voted 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 

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, thorough- 
ness in observation, accuracy in arriving at conclusions and neatness are required 
of each student. The fundamental principles of the science are taught in connec- 
tion 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 advanced work in which the knowledge al- 
ready acquired is utilized. 

Textbook: Smith's "College Chemistry." 

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 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 laboratory and one hour in the lecture and recitation 

Textbook: Smith's "Elementary Chemistry." 

183. Inorganic Preparations 

The time in this subject is devoted largely to laboratory work, with an occa- 
sional explanatory lecture. First the student is taught the best methods of carry- 
ing 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. 

Textbook: Blanchard's "Synthetic Inorganic 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 prin- 
ciple of systematic qualitative analysis and the application of the principles to de- 
tect 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 inor- 
ganic materials ordinarily met with in the manufacture, dyeing and finishing of 
cotton piece goods. The student is required to analyze correctly a sufficient num- 
ber 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 
quantitative 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 term is spent in volumetric analysis involving the use of acids, alkalis, oxidizing 
and reducing agents and chlorimetry. 

Textbook: Talbot's ''Quantitative Analysis." 

203. Quantitative Analysis 

This course is a continuation of Course 202 and comprises gravimetric determi- 
nation of chlorine, sulfuric, carbonic and phosphoric acids, and iron, aluminum, 
calcium and magnesium. The work on chemical problems is also continued 
through this term, the problems being such as to apply the principles of gravi- 
metric analysis. 

Textbook: Talbot's "Quantitative 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 exhaustively treated. Then the stud} r 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 dyestuffs and 
their preparation. The constitutions of various typical dyestuffs are studied to 
determine their influence on coloring power, dyeing properties and fastness to light, 
acids, alkalis, bleaching, etc. In the limited time afforded, the number of dye- 
stuffs 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 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 appli- 
cation 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 con- 
venience 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 considered for the production of especial degrees of fast- 
ness 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 rayon. Lectures are 
given as the occasion requires, but most of the time is spent in the laboratory. 

Samples acquired in connection with the laboratory practice are mounted and 
bound with the above notes, which the}' 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. 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. 

225. Dyeing 

During 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. 

Construction and operation of jiggers. Speed of operation. Penetration of 
solutions used. Selection of dyestuffs. Preparation of dye liquor. Dyeing, wash- 
ing and after-treating. 

Construction of dye padders. Selection of material for rolls. Speed of ma-

226. Dyeing of Knit Goods 

The object of this course is to give the student an opportunity to dye 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 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 soap, mordants 
and other chemicals used in the textile industries. One lecture of forty-five min- 
utes' 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 com- 
pounds and textile fabrics. The commercial methods of obtaining the above sub- 


stances, their usual composition and application, is discussed in lectures. The 
laboratorjr work consists of the analysis of typical compounds, obtained from the 
consumers when possible. The detection of the various starches and fibers b}^ 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 appearance and con- 
struction 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.

Day Students. — A tuition fee of $20 a year is charged day students who are 
residents of Massachusetts. For non-resident students the fee is $150 a year, and 
for students from foreign countries $300 a year. All tuition fees are payable in 
advance in two equal installments, at the opening of each semester. No student 
shall be admitted 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. These deposits are 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 in excess of 25 cents is returned at the end of the year. 

To non-resident and foreign students a further charge of $10 for chemicals is 

A fee of $3 is charged each day student, to be used for assisting in the maintenance 
of athletics in the school. 

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

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. 

Evening Students. — No tuition fee is charged evening students who are residents 
of Massachusetts. For non-resident students the tuition fees are as follows: 
For courses, except those in the chemistry department: 
$6 per twelve week term, 2 evenings a week. 
$3 per twelve week term, 1 evening a week. 
For courses in the chemistry department: 

3 evenings a week for 12 week term: $11 for tuition and $1 for chemicals. 
2 evenings a week for 12 week term: $7 for tuition and $1 for chemicals. 

All students, whether resident or non-resident, who enroll in the chemistry de- 
partment courses, 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 in excess of 25 cents 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. 

Non-resident students and students from foreign countries, if attending the day 
classes, are charged no additional tuition fee if they desire to attend evening classes. 


The school hours for the day classes are from 8.30 to 12 each morning except 
Saturdays, with afternoon sessions from 1.00 to 4.00 except Saturdays. For ses- 
sions of evening classes see page 26. 


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, practi- 
cal demonstrations and student's books are taken into account in ranking students 
at the end of each j r ear and for graduation. Unsatisfactory progress necessitates 
the student repeating his studies. 

Diplomas are given on the satisfactory completion of a course of study extend- 
ing 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 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 examined by the instructors periodi- 
cally, and the care and accuracy with which they are kept is considered in ranking 


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 


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 sus- 
pension 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 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 $10 per week 


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 $50 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 and books may be loaned to students for a specified time. 


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 en- 
couragement and supnort to the furtherance of healthful recreation and manly 
sports for its students.

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 

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 accessible. 

The department is humidified by the system of the American Moistening Com- 
pany, Bahnson humidifiers, the Parks-Cramer Company's Turbo S} r stem and the 
American Air Purifying Company's portable humidifiers, automatic control.
