NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE INSTITUTE 

1898-1953 

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, fi- 
nance, 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 following year. With these funds the first of the present five 
buildings was constructed. 

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 General Court of Massachusetts in 1950 appropriated $750,000 to be 
used in expanding the Institute's classroom and laboratory facilities. After 
numerous unavoidable delays, ground will be broken for it during the coming 
year. 

The present Institute has approximately 110,000 square feet of floor space. It 
is one of the most modern and best-equipped 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 con- 
junction with the general cotton course. Later, a separate course in Junior Me- 
chanical 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 Chemistry 
Bachelor of Science in Textile Design and Fashion 
(Tentative) 

Bachelor of Science in Textile Engineering 

Textile Engineering Option 
Textile Manufacturing Option 
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 facili- 
ties, i.e., laboratories, lighting, etc. It is estimated that during the past ten years 
approximately 450,000 dollars have been spent for new equipment and moderni- 
zation. 

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- 
working on tentative plans for a large addition which will house more labora- 
tories 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 en- 
rollment 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 lo- 
cated along the main bus line; both the bus terminal and railroad station are 
within walking 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 world's largest 
manufacturer of fine cotton yarns and fancy fabrics. In recent years the in- 
dustry 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 industries include the world's largest manufacturers of electronic 
equipment along with an important manufacturer of condensers. One of the 
world's most important manufacturers of rubber equipment has long been es- 
tablished 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 consti- 
tute 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 
student with the practical phases of his academic work. 

Students wishing to remain in New Bedford during the summer recess will find 
many opportunities to w T ork 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 administration 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 engineer- 
ing. 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 25,000 volumes. All courses 
offered at the institute require the student to make full use of all these facilities. 



7 

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 maintain- 
ing 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 
making recommendations to the college authorities. 

Interf raternity 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 member- 
ship in fraternities. 

Fraternities. There are three national, professional and social men's fraterni- 
ties 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 de- 
termine all athletic policies. The athletic council determines the budgets for each 
sport and all schedules must meet their approval.

8 

Requirements for entrance: 

All applicants must have a high school diploma or its equivalent. 
Subjects required for entrance will be determined by the courses to be 

taken. 
All applicants must present with their application a certified transcript 

of their secondary school record. 

Advanced Standing 

Applicants will be admitted to advance standing if the following conditions are 
fulfilled: 

The Faculty Committee on admissions must be satisfied that his secondary 

school record meets the entrance requirements of the institute. 
He must present a certified transcript of the work completed at the previous 

college. 
He must have completed all work required of those classes previous to the 

class in which he wishes to enter. 
He must show that work completed at the previous institution is equivalent 

to that given at this institution. 
A minimum of two years resident study must be completed at this institution 

in order for the applicant to receive a degree. 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

1. Requirements 

The requirements for graduation are the satisfactory completion of all courses 
in one of the prescribed curricula of the Institute, with a total of credit hours 
not less than the minimum number of credit points required in the individual 
curriculum. 

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 be required to make 
up the examination within thirty (30) days. The date for the examina- 
tion in such a case will be left to the instructor's discretion. 

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 "Incom- 
plete" 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 
dropping courses. 

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

e — A student is to be marked late if he enters any class period (lecture or 
laboratory) before one-third (Ya) of the period has elapsed. If he en- 
ters after one-third (%) of the class period has elapsed he is to be 
marked absent. 



4. Credits and Averages 

The Institute operates on the credit-point system. Term credits represent the 
number of hours of work completed successfully; credit points are determined 
by the grade earned; (A) 3 credit points for each credit hour; (B) 2 credit 
points for each credit hour; (C) 1 credit point for each credit hour. A student is 
not required to repeat a subject in which a grade of D is obtained; he receives, 
however, no credit points to be counted toward the minimum number required 
for graduation. In order to be granted a degree, a student is required to have a 
minimum number of credit points equivalent to the number of credit hours re- 
quired for graduation in his curriculum. In other words, he must obtain an over- 
all average of Q or 1.00. 

a — Standing for any period of time is the result obtained by dividing the 

number of credit points received by the student by the number of 

credit hours for which he was registered. 

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 Students, must contain every subject for which the 
student is allowed credit. 

e — No student may exceed a load of credit hours greater than that listed 
for his curriculum without the aproval of the Dean of Students; nor 
may he schedule less without the approval of the Dean of Students. 

5. Dean's List 

A student who at the end of a semester has a high scholastic standing will be 
placed on the Dean's List. This list will be posted on the official bulletin boards. 

6. Degrees with Distinction 

With highest distinction 
With high distinction 
With distinction 

7. Attendance Regulations 

Daily attendance records are to be kept by the instructor in charge of each 
lecture or laboratory class. For each semester, a student is allowed three (3) 
credit-hour absences from each lecture or laboratory class. One (1) lecture hour 
is equivalent to one (1) credit-hour; two (2) laboratory hours is equivalent to 
one (1) credit-hour; that is, a student is allowed to absent himself from three (3) 
lecture hours or six (6) laboratory hours in any one course for each semester. Any 
student exceeding three (3) credit-hours absences from any one class (lecture or 
laboratory) will be reported to the Dean of Students. Any credit -hour absence 
immediately preceding or succeeding a holiday will be equivalent to two (2) 
credit-hour absences. All instances of unreasonable tardiness will also be reported 
to the Dean of Students. 

EXPENSES, TUITION AND FEES 

The tuition for all courses varies according to the residential status of the stu- 
dent. For residents of Massachusetts, the rate is one hundred dollars per year, for 
residents 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 Massachu- 
setts must pay a ten dollar fee for chemicals. 

All students are assessed a $10.00 athletic fee. 

The cost of books and supplies varies with the type of course and the year in 



10 

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

Under the prevailing conditions it is impossible to estimate the living costs for 
students. 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. 

The Manning Emery, Jr., Scholarship Fund: 

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

The Neuss, Hesslein & Co. Scholarship Fund: 

A 5,000 dollar fund set up by the Neuss, Hesslein and Co. of New York City. 
This is a recent contribution and no action has yet been taken in regard to the 
scholarships to be awarded. 

Everett H. Hinckley Scholarship: 

This is an annual award of 100 dollars made by the New York Chapter of the 
New Bedford Textile Institute Alumni Association. It is offered in memory of 
Everett H. Hinckley, former head of the Institute's Chemistry Department. The 
other scholarships which are offered and controlled elsewhere are offered by the 
New England Textile Foundation and the Berkshire Fine Spinning Company. 

AWARDS 

The National Association of Cotton Manufacturers Medal 

The National Association of Cotton Manufacturers offers a medal to be 
awarded each year to the student in the Textile Engineering graduating class 
who shows the greatest proficiency in scholarship. This is determined by an 
examination of all students records and the medal is awarded to that student hav- 
ing the highest average according to the credit point system of determining 
averages. 

The competition for this medal is also open to all evening students who have 
completed the full course of study required for a degree in Textile Engineering. 
The association offering the medal has made it a condition of the award that at 
least four members of the graduating class be eligible to the competition. 

The William E. Hatch Key 

This award is made to the member of the freshman class of Textile Engineer- 
ing, who has the highest credit point average for the year. It is awarded by the 
Alumni Association of the Institute, to commemorate the day of William E. 
Hatch's retirement from the presidency of the Institute. 

The Morris H. Crompton Award 

This key is awarded to the student of the graduating class of Machine Design, 
who has the highest four year average according to the credit point system of de- 
termining averages. It is awarded in honor of Morris H. Crompton, former head 
of the Department of Engineering. 



11 

The Fred E. Busby Award 

This key is awarded by the Alumni Association to the student of the graduating 
class of chemistry, who has attained the highest four year average according to 
the credit point system. It is presented in honor of Fred E. Busby, former head 
of the Department of Chemistry. 

ATHLETICS 

The New Bedford Textile Institute, its administration and faculty, approve and 
encour«age a full program of intercollegiate and intramural athletics. The Athletic 
Council, in cooperation with the student council plans, and provides for, the full- 
est possible program of inter-class and inter-fraternity sports. 

Varsity teams include football, baseball, basketball and soccer. The Institute 
schedules for its games, most of the recognized colleges of its athletic class. These 
schedules include many varied and interesting road trips. 

The Faculty Committee on Rules and Regulations strictly enforce the eligibility 
code for membership on athletic teams. This code is based on the Institute's 
credit point system of determining averages. Under this system the student must 
have an average of 65% or better in order to take an active part in athletics.

Bachelor of Science 

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 
believe, 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 sub- 
jects 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 particu- 
lar field of textile machine design. 

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

Bachelor of Science 

Major — Textile Engineering, Manufacturing Option 

This course is especially designed to equip the student with the technical and 
practical background necessary for a graduate who is to enter one of the various 
fields of textile manufacturing. That is, yarn and fabric development and produc- 
tion, converting, selling, testing, research, etc. 

Many years of experience in the field of textile education have resulted in a 
systematically 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 fibers, he will, in the 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 
picking, 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 na- 



17 

tural and man-made fibers of cotton, wool, worsted, rayons, etc., is considered. 
During the fourth year the student studies the processing of rayons, nylon, vinyon 
and other continuous 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 
schedule and have shown that its successful completion is well within the grasp 
of those whp will succeed.

Bachelor of Science 
Major — Textile Engineering, Engineering Option 

In compliance with the scientific advances relative to the methods and pro- 
cedures in textile manufacturing, this Engineering Option curriculum offers a 
broader basic engineering foundation than does the Manufacturing Option cur- 
riculum. 

Included in this curriculum are pure engineering subjects not a part of the 
Manufacturing Option, viz., statics, advanced thermodynamics, strength of 
materials, mechanisms, dynamics and statistics. Other than a necessary adjust- 
ment of class hours, to allow for the addition of the foregoing engineering sub- 
jects, the Engineering Option is similar to the Manufacturing Option in technical 
textile courses.

Bachelor of Science 

(tentative) 

Major — Textile Design and Fashion 

In keeping with the current scientific advancement in American textiles, and 
to fulfill the requirement relative to competent textile designers, the New Bedford 
Textile Institute has added a new Department of studies in Textile Design and 
Fashion. 

Spectacular advancements in textile technology and engineering during the 
past decade point up a paramount need for a co-ordination of the special tech- 
niques of fabric and garment designers. 

The styling, designing, and development of fabrics and textures now require an 
extensive technical knowledge on the part of those concerned with the artistic 
and functional elements of textile materials. 

This course of study has foundation design and drawing as the principal sub- 
jects in the Freshman year. Other courses in the first year include lettering, fun- 
damental textile subjects, elementary chemistry and dyeing, U. S. history, English 
and sociology. 

Courses in applied textile design, art history, drawing and painting, plus theory 
and practical studies of textile manufacturing, dyeing and finishing comprise the 
major part of the second, third and fourth years. 

Courses in dress design, pattern drafting and fashion illustration are given in 
the Junior and Senior years. Academic subjects (required for a degree) are in- 
cluded throughout the curriculum. 

Other than in the Freshman year, projects are required whereby the student 
creates and executes his own original designs, in both fabric and apparel. 

The New Bedford Textile Institute shall request the State' Board of Collegiate 
Authority to grant the right to offer a college degree to the students completing 
this four year course in Textile Design and Fashion.

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 labora- 
tory 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: High school chemistry 
Mr. Fiocchi 

Ch-2 Qualitative Analysis 

This course enables the student to tell what inorganic, and a few organic, sub- 
stances are present in a compound. The latest semi-micro technique of analysis is 
used. In the laboratory the student applies what he has studied in the analysis of 
both "known" and "unknown" materials. Problem work dealing with equilibrium 
and the other important phases of qualitative analysis is stressed and the student 
is taught how to think for himself. 

Prerequisite : Ch-1 
Mr. Fiocchi 

Ch-3 Quantitative Analysis 

The lectures in this course comprise a thorough and complete discussion of the 
theories of solutions, a quantitative approach to oxidation-reduction reactions 
(redox reactions) and a study of some precipitation methods. The laboratory 
work is an application of the lectures. It consists of the calibration of the volu- 
metric ware used and the analysis of materials by neutralization, oxidation- re- 
duction and precipitation methods. Quality rather quantity is stressed. 

Prerequisites, CH-1 and CH-2 
Professor Fenaux 

Ch-4 Quantitative Analysis II 

This course is a continuation of Ch-3 and consists of a study of the gravi- 
metric methods of analysis. 

Prerequisite: Ch-3 
(Instructor) As for Ch-3 

Ch-5 Advanced Quantitative Analysis 

Ch-6 Advanced Quantitative Analysis II 

These are primarily laboratory courses in which the student analyzes many 
materials of a more advanced nature than encountered in Ch-3 and 4. He employs 
many methods used in commercial practice and alalyzes steel, copper alloys, ores, 
silicate rock, minerals, etc. The student uses electroanalysis, potentiometry, 
photometry colorimetry and gas analysis. He also studies more at length and more 
deeply certain special topics of Quantitative Analysis (indicators, redox equilibri- 
um, etc.). Frequent reference is made to recent advances and discoveries in cur- 
rent chemical literature. 

Prerequisites : Ch-3 and Ch-4 
Professor Fenaux 



26 
Ch-7 Elementary Dyeing 

This course consists of (1) a study of the physical and chemical constitution of 
the textile fibers, both natural and artificial; (2) a study of the action of physi- 
cal and chemical agents upon the fibers; and (3) a study of the methods of appli- 
cation and the effects of the various classes of dyes upon fibers. 

Prerequisite: Ch-1 
Professor Dupre 

Ch-8 Elementary Dyeing II 

This course, which is a continuation of Ch-7, teaches the student how to process 
the various fibers; how to test the dyed fibers for the various characteristics and 
how to enhance certain of these characteristics by special treatment of the fibers, 
before and /or after dyeing. 

Prerequisite: Ch-7 
Professor Dupre 

Ch-9 Advanced Dyeing I 

This course is taken concurrently with Ch-20 in order that the special attention 
necessary in preparing ground shade for discharge printing and the details of over- 
dyeing resist printed fabrics may be better understood by the student. The theory 
of the selection of dyes for those purposes and the need for the addition of special 
chemical agents to the dyebaths is studied in detail. 
Professor Dupre 

Ch-10 Advanced Dyeing II 

The theory and practice of color matching are principally emphasized in this 
course. The student is taught proper method of obtaining a given shade by using a 
combination of several dyes. The testing of various classes of dyestuffs for their 
coloring powers and money value is included. The characteristics of the various 
dyestuff combinations is considered. 

The more important AATCC tests procedures are also carried out. 

Prerequisites: Ch-7 and Ch-8 
Professor Broadmeadow 

Ch-11 Advanced Dyeing IV 
(Dyeing and Finishing of Knit Goods) 

Preparation for and dyeing of hosiery and other knitted fabrics. This course 
includes the theory and reason for preboarding nylon hose and the presetting of 
nylon and other synthetic fiber fabrics. The finishing and drying of hosiery and 
other knitted fabrics are studied. 

Text: Lectures and assigned reading of selected articles from trade journals. 
Professor Dupre 

Ch-12 Chemistry of Textile Fibers 

A course emphasizing: the relationship between the chemical structure and 
physical properties of fibers ; the nature of the chemical reactions which produce 
degradation of fibers; the production of synthetic fibers. The short laboratory 
period is devoted to tests that serve to identify the types of fibers and their 
degradation products. 
Professor Dupre 

Ch-1 3 Organic Chemistry 

This course consists of a study of those compounds of carbon comprising what is 
known as the "aliphatic" family. Particular stress is placed upon structual formu- 
las the while a classification of properties and group reactions is made. The labora- 



27 

tory course comprises a study of more common methods of synthesis, the pre- 
parations exemplifying the principles studied in the lectures. 

Prerequisites: Ch-1 and Ch-2 
Professor Broadmeadow 

Ch-14 Organic Chemistry II 

This course is a continuation of Ch-12 in which compounds of carbon consti- 
tuting the "aromatic" family and also certain heterocyclic compounds are studied. 

Prerequisites: Ch-1, Ch-2 and Ch-13 
Professor Broadmeadow 

Ch-15 Organic Chemistry III 

Manufacture of Dyes and Intermediates 

This course is a specialized continuance of Ch-13 and Ch-14. It deals with the 
chemical nature of dyes, their preparation as well as of their intermediates. In 
the laboratory, the student prepares certain intermediates and dyes. He then tests 
them by comparing material dyed with his dyes to fibers dyed with commercially 
prepared dyes of the same class. 

Prerequisites: Ch-13 and Ch-14
