NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE INSTITUTE 

1898-1951 

The New Bedford Textile Institute was established and incorporated by the 
Board of Trustees of the New Bedford Textile School on August 1, 1895, under 
Chapter 475 of the Acts of 1895 of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

The first meeting of the Board of Trustees was held on January 27, 1896 and 
committees were appointed to supervise activities with relation to building, finance, 
machinery, education and other necessary executive functions. During the year 
1897 the city of New Bedford appropriated $25,000 for the use of the school and 
the Commonwealth of Massachusetts appropriated an additional $25,000 the fol- 
lowing year. With these funds the first of the present five buildings was con- 
structed. 

The first building, consisting of three stories and a basement, comprised about 
22,000 square feet of floor space. During the first 25 years of the school's existence, 
four buildings were added; three in the form of additions and one, the recitation 
building, a separate structure, was connected to the others by an overpass and 
tunnel. 

The present Institute has approximately 110,000 square feet of floor space. It 
is one of the most modern and best-equipped textile institutes in the world. 

The first course offered by the Institute was entitled, "General Cotton Course." 
In 1902, two additional courses in Knitting and Chemistry were offered. A me- 
chanical engineering department was added in 1905. This department offered 
courses in mechanical drawing, machine shop practice, shop mathematics, me- 
chanics, electricity and steam. These courses at first were offered only in conjunc- 
tion with the general cotton course. Later, a separate course in Junior Mechanical 
Engineering was offered and it was from this beginning that the present engineering 
department evolved. 

Today the following courses of study are offered : 

Degree Courses — 4 years 

Bachelor of Science in Textile Engineering 
Bachelor of Science in Textile Chemistry 
Bachelor of Science in Machine Design 

Diploma Courses — 3 years 

General Textile Manufacturing 
Textile Designing 
Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing 
Knit Goods Manufacturing 

Certificate Courses — 2 years 

Textile Technology 

Drafting and Machine Shop Practice 

Along with the development and expansion of the curricula, there has been an 
almost complete renewal of equipment and a modernization of working facilities, 
i.e., laboratories, lighting, etc. It is estimated that during the past ten years ap- 
proximately 450,000 dollars have been spent for new equipment and modernization. 

At the present time, extensive additions to the school plant are being planned. 
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has recently appropriated funds toward the 
purchase of considerable property adjoining the institute. Engineers are now work- 
ing on tentative plans for a large addition which will house more laboratories and a 
modern library. 

The New Bedford Textile Institute is proud of its professional standing and of 
the recognition it receives throughout the world. This recognition is evidenced by 
the large number of foreign students who attend each year. The current enrollment 
consists of students from approximately fifteen states and twelve foreign countries. 
Among the latter are France, Palestine, Chile, Bolivia, Mexico, Canada, China, 
Haiti, Egypt, Brazil and Greece.

ENVIRONMENT 

The Institute is situated in the city of New Bedford,, Massachusetts. It is located 
along the main bus line; both the bus terminal and railroad station are within walk- 
ing distance. 

New Bedford, being an industrial city is an especially suitable location for a school 
of this type. For many years it has been recognized as the worlds largest manu- 
facturer of fine cotton yarns and fancy fabrics. In recent years the industry of this 
city has become more diversified. Many new industries have found New Bedford, 
with its skilled manpower, particularly suited to their type of work. These indus- 
tries include the world's largest manufacturers of electronic equipment along with 
an important manufacturer of condensers. One of the world's most important manu- 
facturers of rubber equipment has long been established here and more recently a 
leading manufacturer of machine tools has migrated to this industrial city. 

Textile, machine tool and rubber manufacturing or processing do not constitute 
the whole of New Bedford's diversified industry. This historical city has long been 
recognized as a leading fishing port. Each year, millions of dollars worth of fish are 
brought into this port, either for direct shipment or for New Bedford's large fish 
processing houses. 

These industries, both old and new, afford the Institute many opportunities for 
planned inspection trips. This, we feel, is an invaluable aid in acquainting the stu- 
dent with the practical phases of his academic work. 

Students wishing to remain in New Bedford during the summer recess will find 
many opportunities to work during this period. Because of the nature of the city's 
industry, the student often finds work which is in his chosen field, thereby gaining 
practical experience as well as financial aid to meet the expenses incurred during 
the school year. 

The civic center of New Bedford is a few minutes walk from the school grounds. 
Here the student will find the municipal building, the main library, veterans ad- 
ministration building and many other city and county buildings. Close to the civic 
center he will find the city's largest shopping and theater district. 

COLLEGE FACILITIES 
Library 

The institute maintains a main library and several small departmental libraries. 
The present main library contains approximately 4,000 volumes, all of which per- 
tain, for the most part, to textile manufacturing, chemistry and general engineering. 
Present plans call for a library in the new addition to house a minimum of 15,000 
volumes. 

Each of the smaller departmental libraries contain volumes pertaining to the 
work of each particular department. Included among these are bound volumes of 
some twenty publications which are received monthly. These volumes make a very 
important reference for those students engaged in research. 

The students also have access to the New Bedford Public Library. This library 
contains a very comprehensive collection of about 250,000 volumes. All courses 
offered at the institute require the student to make full use of all these facilities. 

Bookstore 

The institute maintains a bookstore on the second floor of the administration 
building. This store is operated on a non-profit basis. All supplies, books, etc., are 
sold at very little above cost — this difference covering the cost of maintaining 
the store. 

The student will find all the supplies he needs in this bookstore. Although the 
student is not required to purchase these supplies, he is advised not to buy else- 
where until he is certain those things he will buy are approved by the person in 
charge of the course in which the equipment is to be used. All supplies in the book 
store are approved. 

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS 
Student Council. This is a body consisting of elected representatives from 
each of the twelve classes, and one faculty representative. Its purpose is to study 
problems of the student body, class activities and the various matters of student 



organizations. This body represents the student body in proposing changes or mak- 
ing recommendations to the college authorities. 

Interfraternity Council. An organization consisting of members representing 
each of the men's and women's fraternities. One member is chosen from the faculty. 
This body determines the rushing season and the rules which control rushing. It 
has charge of enforcement of all institute rules regarding membership in fraternities. 

Fraternities. There are three national, professional and social men's fraternities 
and one women's sorority. These are: * 

Phi Psi Delta Kappa Phi Sigma Tau Phi 

The women's sorority is: Phi Zeta Sigma. These fraternities maintain chapter 
rooms and all play a major part in the social and athletic affairs of the institute. 

Athletic Council. This is a body consisting of representatives of the Board of 
Trustees and representatives of the faculty. The purpose of this group is to deter- 
mine all athletic policies. The athletic council determines the budgets for each sport 
and all schedules must meet their approval.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

1. Requirements 

The requirements for graduation are the satisfactory completion of all courses 
in one of the prescribed curricula of the Institute, a total of not less than 160 term 
credits, with not fewer than 160 honor points. 

2. Grading System 

The following grading system shall be used in determining the above: 

A. Excellent, 90-95 

B. Good, 80-90 

C. Passing, 70-79 

D. Passing without credit points, 60-69 
F. Failure, below 60 

Abs. Absent from examination 

Inc. Incomplete. Cannot be given unless student has average "C" on the course 

Wi. Withdrew officially from course 
"Dropped." Dropped without permission or after final date 

3. Explanations 

a — A student absent from a final examination shall not be allowed to make up 
the examination until the instructor receives a notice from the Dean indi- 
cating that the absence was excused. An unexcused absence from examina- 
tion becomes "Fa" on the students record. 

b — "Incomplete" indicates that the student has had an average of "C" or 
above, but has not completed the work specified for the course, has been 
allowed an extension of time by the instructor. The grade of "Incomplete" 
must be replaced by a regular grade the next time the course is given during 
the student's residence, or the "Incomplete" will become a "Failure" "Fi." 

c — A grade of "Fd" is posted if the instructor reports a student has dropped 
a course for which he was scheduled. The student may not have dropped 
the course officially or he may have dropped it after the final date for drop- 
ping courses. 

d — A "Failure" may be made up only by repeating the subject. Such a repeat 
course may be regularly scheduled on the students roster. 

4. Credits and Averages 

The Institute operates on the credit point system. Term credits represent the 
number of hours of work completed successfully; honor points are determined by 
the grade earned; (A) 3 honor points for each credit hour; (B) 2 honor points for 
each credit hour; (C) 1 honor point for each credit hour. In order to be graduated, 
each student is required to have a minimum number of honor points equal to the 
number of credit hours required for graduation in his curriculum. 

a — The scholastic average of each student is determined by the following 
formula: 
(Net honor points minus the number of hours failed) 10 , 

Credit hours earned plus the number of hours failed 

b — Transfer credits and points are not included in scholastic averages. 

c — Grades of absent count as failures. Grades of incomplete do not count 
at all. 

d — The roster of the student's courses, duly approved, and copies filed with 
the Dean of the Institute, must contain every subject for which the student 
is allowed credit. 

e — No student may exceed a load of 24 hours without the approval of the Dean 
of the Institute, and no student may schedule less than 15 hours without 
the permission of the faculty committee. In computing student loads, non- 
credit courses are included. 

5. Attendance Regulations 

a — Absence 

(1) Being absent from any ONE class shall constitute ONE absence. 

(2) After THREE absences from any one class, the Institute office shall 



be notified by the head of the department in which the absence occured. 

(3) Any absence shall be considered an unexcused absence unless excused 
by the Dean. 

(4) Each THREE unexcused absences from any one class shall auto- 
matically reduce the earned term mark for that subject, ONE grade. 
Example: An "A" will drop to a "B." 

(5) Any recorded unexcused absence shall be corrected to an excused ab- 
sence on the written order of the Dean. 

(6) In case of an absence from any examination and/or quiz period, no 
student shall be permitted to take a makeup one without written per- 
mission of the Dean. 

(7) When THREE UNEXCUSED ABSENCES are reported to the office, 
any student so reported shall be subject to such disciplinary action as 
is deemed necessary by the Dean. 

(8) Only the Dean shall have authority to grant excuses. 

b — Tardiness 

(1) Entering any lecture, laboratory or shop period after the hour that 
class was scheduled shall constitute a tardiness. 

(2) Entering any lecture, laboratory or shop period which* is more than 
ONE THIRD in progress shall constitute an absence. 

(3) Three tardy arrivals in any one class shall constitute an absence from 
that class. 

c — Dismission 

Under certain circumstances, an instructor may dismiss any student or 
students from any class, if in the instructors opinion, the student or students 
work is satisfactorily completed and/or his or their presence is not con- 
ducive to the best efforts and interests of the other students in the class or 
group. 

EXPENSES, TUITION AND FEES 

The tuition for all courses varies according to the residential status of the student. 
For residents of Massachusetts, the rate is one hundred dollars per year, for resi- 
dents of other states, the fee is two hundred and fifty dollars. The rate for all 
foreign students is five hundred dollars. 

All students pay a registration fee of two dollars and fifty cents. 

Students majoring in chemistry pay a laboratory fee of ten dollars. Those stu- 
dents majoring in Textile Engineering or machine design pay a laboratory fee of 
five dollars. In addition to these laboratory fees, all non-residents of Massachusetts 
must pay a ten dollar fee for chemicals. 

All students are assessed a $15.00 athletic fee. 

The cost of books and supplies varies with the type of course and the year in 
which it is taken. This cost is more emphasized during the first year and less em- 
phasized during the remainder of the instructional program. This cost varies from 
approximately fifty dollars to one hundred dollars per year depending, of course, 
on the aforementioned factors. 

Under prevailing conditions it is impossible to estimate the living costs for stu- 
dents. There are many variable factors and much depends on the standard of living 
of the student. 

ENDOWMENTS AND SCHOLARSHIPS 

The New Bedford Textile Institute is wholly supported by the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts and has no endowments. 

There are four scholarships offered and controlled by the school authorities. 
There are also available about ten other scholarships which are controlled else- 
where. Those which are controlled by the school authorities are as follows: 

William Firth Scholarship Fund : 

A 3,000 dollar fund deposited in the New Bedford Five Cents Savings Bank. 
Only the interest of this fund may be used for scholarships.

Major — Machine Design 





Due to the increased demand for men skilled in the field of machine design, the 
original two-year course in Junior Mechanical Engineering has been increased to a 
four-year course. The course has been greatly broadened in scope and includes many 
new academic and technical subjects. The addition of these new subjects, we be- 
lieve, will give the student the necessary background for one who will compete in 
the field of Machine Design. 

The student is trained thoroughly in the field of mathematics, beginning with a 
review of high school algebra and continuing through a practical course in applied 
calculus. These courses in mathematics, particularly the course in trigonometry, 
are designed to meet the problems ordinarily encountered by one engaged in the 
various fields of engineering. 

Full courses in mechanical drawing, geometry of engineering drawing, mechan- 
isms, jig, fixture and tool design are undertaken. As an aid in the better under- 
standing and application of the principles involved in these courses, other subjects 
such as applied engineering mechanics, strength of materials, metallurgy, etc., are 
included in the curriculum. 

In the past few years we have received several requests for men skilled not only 
in machine design but who also had a good basic knowledge of textile machinery. 
With this in mind we have arranged a special course in the textile division of the 
school, to be pursued by all taking the course in machine design. This, we believe, 
will train the student in the general field of machine design and also in the particular 
field of textile machine design. 

As in the past, the student will make frequent trips to a wide variety of industrial 
plants, thereby gaining a first hand knowledge of actual working conditions and 
methods.

Bachelor of Science 
Major — Textile Engineering 

This course, of four years duration, is especially designed to equip the student 
with the technical and practical background necessary for one who is to enter one 
of the various fields of textile manufacturing, i.e., textile engineering, fabric pro- 
duction, converting, selling, testing, factoring, etc. 

Many years of experience in the field of textile education have resulted in a sys- 
tematically arranged course of study. In order that the student will thoroughly 
understand and intelligently apply the principles involved in modern manufacture 
of fabrics from both natural and man made fibres, he will, in his first two years, 
pursue these courses of study which are basic to all engineering, i.e., mathematics, 
chemistry, physics, engineering drawing, English composition, etc. In the interim 
he is gradually introduced to the more elementary phases of fabric construction. 

He is thoroughly instructed in both the theoretical and practical phases of pick- 
ing, carding, drawing and weaving. This work begins with elementary stages in the 
first year and continues through four years to the most advanced stages. Designing 
and cloth analysis are introduced during the second year and the scope is gradually 
broadened through the third and fourth years. The blending of natural and man- 
made fibres of cotton, wool, worsted, rayons, etc., is considered. During the fourth 



15 

year the student studies the processing of rayons, nylon, vinyon and other con- 
tinuous filaments. 

The student must complete other courses of study necessary for one who would 
compete successfully in the textile field. Among these are thorough courses in 
knitting, textile dyeing, merchandising, economics, applied electricity, machine 
tool laboratory practice and modern industrial plant construction. 

A review of the curriculum will reveal a rigid four year schedule. However, past 
experience and the results achieved by our graduates have warranted such a sched- 
ule and have shown that its successful completion is well within the grasp of those 
who will succeed.

DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY 

Ch 1 Inorganic Chemistry 

This course is required of those students enrolled for the Bachelor of Science in 
Chemistry Degree. The course is divided into two sections. Section I is taken 
during the first three months of the first semester and during the second semester 
and comprises a thorough study of basic chemical facts (study of matter, atomic 
structure and its applications to chemical reactions, the states of matter, solutions 
and equilibrium; certain elements and their compounds are studied in order to show 
more clearly the relation between theory and practice). Section II is taken during 
the last month of the first semester and comprises a study of the manufacture of 
chemical materials of importance to Textile Chemists (acetic acid, sulfuric acid, 
soda-ash, caustic soda, the artificial fibers, etc.). The laboratory work associated 
with Ch-1 is designed to accompany the lectures very closely and thus enable the 
student to better learn the facts and theories they are studying. 
Prerequisite: Hio-h school chemistry
