NEW BEDFORD INSTITUTE 
OF TEXTILES AND TECHNOLOGY 

1898-1954 

Hi STORY 

The Institute of Textiles and Technology, one of the most modern 
and best-equipped institutes of its kind in the world, was established 
and incorporated by the Board of Trustees on August 1, 1895, under 
Chapter 475 of the Acts of 1895 of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

The ftrst 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 
S25,000 for the use of the school and the Commonwealth of Massachu- 
setts 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, com- 
prised 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. 

Since its founding the Institute has attempted to organize and conduct 
programs in technology which will equip the student to cope success- 
fully with problems relative to industrial development, manufacturing, 
and research. It has been its policy to provide consistently instruction 
in both the theory and practice in all phases of dyeing, manufacturing, 
and distribution of textiles. 

In addition to its program in textile education, the Institute has over 
the years introduced programs in technology relative to industrial areas 
other than textile manufacturing. These include courses of instruction 
in textile chemistry, mechanical engineering, textile design and fashion, 
and industrial electronics and electricity. 

The New Bedford Institute of Textiles and Technology 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 stu- 
dents from approximately fifteen states and twelve foreign countries. 
Among the latter are Mexico, Israel, Ecuador, Salvador, Korea and Paki- 
stan. Others came from France, Chile, Bolivia, Canada, China, Haiti, 
Brazil and Greece. 

THE NEW SCIENCE HALL 

The new science hall, which will be completed in the fall of 1955, 
comprises the major portion of the Institute's expansion program for 
more adequate classroom and laboratory facilities. This new addition, 
involving an outlay of approximately one million dollars, will supple- 
ment the present facilities of the college with modern engineering, 



10 

science, and research laboratories. These will include mechanical engi- 
neering, electrical engineering, physics, physical chemistry, and micro- 
biology laboratories. In addition, this new construction will house all 
administrative offices, additional classrooms, an amphitheatre, and a 
modern gymnasium. Plans are now being completed to add a new audi- 
torium to the present expansion program. 

COLLEGE FACILITIES 

Library 

The Institute's library contains approximately 6,000 volumes, all of 
which pertain for the most part, to textile manufacturing, chemistry, 
and general engineering. Present plans call for a library in the new addi- 
tion to house a minimum of 15,000 volumes. The library currently 
subscribes to approximately one hundred journals and publications pub- 
lished periodically by professional societies and industrial organizations. 

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 admin- 
istration building. This store is operated on a non-profit basis. All 
supplies, books, etc., are sold at very little above cost— this difference 
covers the cost of maintaining the store. 

The student will find all the supplies he needs in this bookstore. Al- 
though the student is not required to purchase these supplies, he is advised 
not to buy elsewhere until he is certain those things he will buy are ap- 
proved by the person in charge of the course in which the equipment is 
to be used. All supplies in the bookstore are approved. 

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 walking distance. 

New Bedford, 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 industry of this city has become more diversified. Many new 
industries have found New Bedford, with its skilled manpower, par- 
i icularly 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 manu- 
facturers 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, mil- 



11 

lions 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 oppor- 
tunities 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 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, \eterans administration building and many other city and county 
buildings. Close to the civic center he will find the city's largest shopping 
and theatre district. 

STUDENT EXPENSES 

Tuition and General Fees 

The tutition for all courses varies according to the residential status of 
the student. For residents of Massachusetts, the rate is one hundred dol- 
lars 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 $2.50.

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS 
Student Council 

This is a body consisting of elected representatives from each of the 
four classes, and one faculty representative. Its purpose is to study prob- 
lems of the student body, class activities, and the various matters of 



12 

student organization. The council represents the student body in pro- 
posing changes or making 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 rush- 
ing. It has charge of enforcement of all institute rules regarding mem- 
bership 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 Phi Tau, Kappa Sigma 
Phi. These fraternities maintain chapter rooms and all play a major 
part in the social and athletic affairs of the Institute. 

Athletic Association 

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

College Glee Club 

For all students interested in music, a Glee Club has been organized. 
The Glee Club is supported by the Student Council. The purpose of 
the Club is to furnish both a musical and social outlet to its members, 
who meet weekly with a capable director, preparing a repetoire of songs 
for different functions during the school year. 

Engineering Club 

This organization is available only to those students majoring in 
mechanical engineering.

13 

Fabricator 

The student annual illustrated publication sponsored by the senior 

class. 

ACADEMIC PROMOTION 

In general, a student to be classified as a Sophomore must have ob- 
tained at least two- thirds of the semester hours prescribed in his Fresh- 
man program plus an equal number of quality points; as a Junior at 
least three-fourths of the prescribed semester hours for the previous two 
years plus an equal number of quality points; and as a Senior at least 
nine-tenths of the prescribed semester hours for his previous three years 
plus an equal number of quality points. 

STUDENT CONDUCT 

It is to be assumed that students matriculating in any one of the vari- 
ous programs offered by the Institute have attained sufficient maturity 
and developed those attributes conducive to an adequate preparation for 
professional careers. This means that the administration at the Insti- 
tute expects that each student will have developed an ability to get along 
well with others and to maintain a personal high standard of honesty 
and moral conduct. The Institute has not established any rigid rules 
restricting the conduct of individuals or groups of students. However, it 
will be understood that a student may be dropped from the rolls or sub- 
jected to other disciplinary action, for conduct which is illegal, immoral, 
or not in keeping with the best interest of the Institute. 

GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING 

Because the Institute is a small college, a close personal relationship 
is maintained between the student body and the faculty. Through the 
Dean of Students and Faculty Advisors, assistance is given to students 
during the year in the scheduling of their classes and in solving problems 
which may arise during the year. Whenever it is deemed necessary, 
correspondence and interviews are entered into between the Dean of 
students and families of those students whose performance is not con- 
sidered satisfactory. 

The freshman year begins with a Freshman Orientation Period im- 
mediately preceding the fall term. Registration, general intelligence and 
aptitude tests are completed, orientation lectures on campus and pro- 
fessional life are given. Interpretive results of the intelligence and apti- 
tude tests are available to the students, to the Dean of Students, and to 
the faculty advisors to aid in the making of decisions throughout the 
student's college carrer. 

Laboratory and drawing courses are arranged so that the average stu- 
dent will not find it necessary to supplement the scheduled hours with 
outside preparation. 

An average of one and one-half hours of preparation for each hour 
of lecture or recitation will be required of freshmen.

Honorabli S.wn i i Ross Memorial Medal: 

This medal is presented to the outstanding evening student lor the 
current year. This medal is presented by Miss Beryl I. Ross in memory 



17 

of her father. Mr. Ross had in mind the value of textile education and 
its necessity for the mill employee to advance. 

New Bedford Institute of Textiles and Technology owes a debt of 
gratitude to Honorable Samuel Ross who, for fifty years, served as a 
member of the Trustee Board, many years as its president. The records 
indicate that Mr. Ross originated the idea that New Bedford should have 
a textile school. Through his untiring efforts to have textile school fa- 
cilities provided for the people of New Bedford and vicinity, a bill was 
filed by Mr. Ross to secure same. On June 5, 1895 Governor Frederick 
T. Greenhalge signed the bill providing for the establishment of New 
Bedford Institute of Textiles and Technology. Honorable Samuel Ross 
may well be called the original founder of the New Bedford Institute 
of Textiles and Technology. 

ATHLETICS 

The New Bedford Institute of Textiles and Technology, its adminis- 
tration and faculty, approve and encourage a full program of inter-col- 
legiate and intramural athletics. The Athletic Association plans and 
provides for the fullest possible program of inter-class and inter-fraternity 
sports. 

Varsity teams include football, baseball, basketball, tennis, 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 Institute is an active member in the Southern New England 
Coastal Conference in all sports. The southern New England Coastal 
Conference consists of many of the smaller colleges in Southeastern New 
England. 

ADVANCED STANDING 

Undergraduates of other recognized colleges who apply for admission 
to New Bedford Institute of Textiles and Technology as transfer students 
with advanced standing must present an official statement of honorable 
dismissal, a transcript of their college record, and a marked copy of the 
college's catalog to describe courses completed and offered for transfer 
credit. Only those courses will be accepted which fit the curriculum re- 
quirements of the Institute, and for which the earned grade was "C" or 
better. 

GRADES AND 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 points not less than the minimum number of credit hours 
required in the individual curriculum. 

2. Grading System. 

The following grading system shall be used in determining the above: 
A — Excellent (90 and above) 
B - Good (80-89) 



18 

C - Passing (70-79) 

D — Passing without credit points (60-69) 

F — Failure (below 60) 

1 — Incomplete— A grade of incomplete may be assigned by the in- 
structor Avhen a legitimate reason exists for the failure to com- 
plete the work on the date required. This grade indicates credit 
is withheld without prejudice to the student's rating pending 
completition of the required work. A grade of "I" must be re- 
moved within 30 academic calendar days after the completion 
of the course. 

W — Withdraw— A student may voluntarily withdraw from a course 
without prejudice not later than the mid-semester. A with- 
drawal after the mid-semester is recorded as "F" or failure. 

A deficiency resulting from failure may be removed by (1) repeating 
the course the next time it may be re-scheduled, (2) securing transfer 
credit in a comparable course from some other accredited institution. 
Only grades of "C" or better are accepted for transfer credit. Such 
courses for transfer must be approved in advance by the Dean of Stu- 
dents. When a subject which has been failed is repeated at the institute, 
the new grade is entered on the student's record in addition to the 
original grade. 

3. Credits and Averages. 

The Institute operates on the credit-point system. Term credits rep- 
resent 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 required for 
graduation in his curriculum. In other words, he must obtain an overall 
average of "C" 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 we was registered. 

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

4. Eligibility. 

No student who fails to maintain a scholastic standing of "C" or 1.00 
is eligible to participate in athletics or to hold an elective office in non- 
athletic activities. A students scholastic standing is computed at the 
micl-semester and at the close of each semester. 

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.

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 re- 
ported to the Dean of Students.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING 

Mechanical Engineering extends into practically all branches of manu- 
facturing and processing industries, as well as power generation, trans- 
portation, and plant construction. 

In each industry there are several functions which the Mechanical 
Engineer may perform; that is, he may be assigned to general research, 
or to testing of materials or the testing of machine elements. He may be 
employed in the design of machinery relative to the development of 
manufacturing processes and plants. The Mechanical Engineer may also 
be engaged in the construction of machinery and in the production of 
goods. He may become involved in the plant efficiency or in the prob- 
lems of management, or he may be attracted to the excellent opportuni- 
ties in sales engineering. In most cases, placement in these fields lead to 
important executive posts. 

The training which this Institute provides with respect to Mechanical 
Engineering comprises a basic study of the scientific and mathematical 
subjects; this includes those subjects fundamental to an engineering pro- 
gram, such as electronics, metallurgy, hydraulics, and electrical engineer- 
ing. 

The department of mechanical engineering offers exceptional oppor- 
tunities for training in the fundamentals of machine design. A 
laboratory program including design, machine shop, and engineering 
laboratory experiments, provides association with the practical applica- 
tion of engineering operations. 

Technical Report writing, industrial phychology, and labor relations 
complete the program of preparing the graduate for the engineering pro- 
fession.

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE 

Major — Textile Engineering 

This course is especially designed to equip the student with the techni- 
cal 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 production 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 in- 
volved in modern manufacture of fabrics from both natural and man 
made fibres, 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 construc- 
tion. 

He is thoroughly instructed in both the theoretical and practical 
phases of picking, carding, drawing and fabrication. 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 
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 textile dyeing, merchandising, economics, applied 
electricity, machine tool laboratory practice and modern industrial plant 
< onstruction. 

The Manufacturing and Knitting Options comprise programs of study 
specially arranged for the student's choice of a major course in weaving 
01 knitting phases, respectively. The Engineering Option has been 
designed in compliance with the scientific advances relative to the 
met hods and procedures in textile manufacturing and its curriculum 
offers a broader basic: engineering foundation than do the Manufactur- 
ing or Knitting Options.

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE 

Major — Textile Design and Fashion 

In keeping with the current scientific advancement in American tex- 
tiles, and to fulfill the requirement relative to competent textile design- 
ers, the New Bedford Institute of Textiles and Techonogy has added a 
new Department of Studies in Textile Design and Fashion. 

Spectacular advancements in textile technology and engineering dur- 
ing the past decade point up a paramount need for a co-ordination of 

the special techniques 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 princi- 
pal subjects in the Freshman year. Other courses in the first year include 
lettering, fundamental textile subjects, 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 included 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.
