Lebanon Valley College originated in the action of East Pennsyl- 
vania Conference at its annual session held at Lebanon in March, 
1865. Resolutions were passed deciding the question of establishing a 
higher institution of learning to be located within the bounds of the 
East Pennsylvania or of the Pennsylvania Conference. One year 
later the committee appointed recommended in its report : first, the 
establishment of a school of high grade under the supervision of the 
church ; second, to accept for this purpose the grounds and buildings 
of what was then known as the Annville Academy, tendered as a gift 
to the Conference ; and third to lease the buildings and grounds to a 
responsible party competent to take charge of the school for the 
coming year. School opened May 7, 1866 with forty-nine students. 
By the close of the collegiate year one hundred and fifty-three were 
enrolled, thus demonstrating* at once the need of such an institution 
in this locality and the wisdom of the founders. 

In April, 1867 the Legislature granted a charter with full univer- 
sity privileges under which a College faculty was organized with 
Rev. Thomas Rees Vickroy, Ph.D., as president and Prof. E. Benja- 
min Bierman as principal of the Normal Department. In this same 
year the Philokosmian Literary Society was organized by the young 
men, eleven acres of additional land were purchased and a large 
brick building erected thereon with chapel, recitation rooms, presi- 
dent's office and apartments for sixty boarding students. The build- 
ing was not furnished and fully occupied till the fall of 1868. 

The first regular commencement occurred June 16, 1870, v/hen 
the first three graduates, William B. Bodenhorn, Albert C. Rigler 
and Mary A. Weiss received their diplomas. 

About two years later opposition to the school manifested itself 
and President Vickroy stated in his report to the annual Conference 
that the attendance of students was reduced from one hundred to 
seventy-five, and the cause of this diminution was persistent opposi- 
tion on the part of certain brethren. 

President Vickroy directed the affairs of the institution for five 
years from 1866 to 1871. During his administration the charter was 
prepared and granted by the State Legislature, the laws and regula- 
tions for the internal workings framed and adopted, the curriculum 
established and two classes — those of 1870 and 1871 — were graduated. 
In June, 1871, Prof. Lucian H. Hammond was elected president. 
During his term of office five classes were graduated, the Clionian 
Literary Society organized by the ladies, and the College made steady 


and substantial progress, but failing- health compelled him to resign 
in June, 1876. 

Rev. David D. Belong, D.D. became the third president. He 
found it necessary to reconstruct the faculty and retained but two of 
the former teachers. The Kalozetean Literary Society was instituted 
to awaken interest in literary work among the young men by means 
of a healthy rivalry and the music department was organized. In 
the summer of 1883 a large two story frame building was erected on 
College Avenue, containing art room, music rooms, the department of 
natural science, a museum and the College library. During his presi- 
dency one hundred and seven students were graduated, fourteen in 
music and ninety-three in the literary department. 

After an interregnum of several months Rev. Edmund S. Lorenz, 
A.M. was elected president and took up the work with energy and 
ability. Enlargement was his motto and the friends of the College 
rallied to his support. Post graduate studies were offered. The 
College Forum made its appearance under the editorship of the Fac- 
ulty. With a devotion that won the admiration of his friends he 
labored incessantly for nearly two years to make the College the peer 
of any in the State but under this strain his health failed and he was 
obliged to retire at the close of the collegiate year of 1889. 

The fifth president. Rev. Cyrus J. Kephart, D.D., assumed the 
duties of his office at the opening of the fall term in 1889. He secured 
creditable additions to the endowment fund but because of discourag 
ing conditions declined re-election at the close of the first year. 

The question of re-locating the College agitated its constituency, 
divided its friends and greatly hindered its progress. Some were 
almost in despair, others were indifferent, while others hoped and 
waited for the best. Under these conditions the Board of Trustees 
met in special session July 28, i890, and called Dr. E. Benjamin Bier- 
man to the presidency. He was inaugurated on the evening of the 
sixth of November following. Buildings were renovated, a larger 
number of students enrolled and the Mary A. Dodge Fund of ten thou- 
sand dollars received, " the interest of which only is to be loaned with- 
out charge to such pious young people as the Faculty of the College 
may deem worthy of help as students. ' ' The Silver Anniversary of the 
College was celebrated June 15, 1891, when money was raised to 
purchase four acres of ground to be added to the college campus- 
With the experience of twenty-five years of earnest effort to combat 
opposition and overcome error and misconceived notions of higher 
education and to build up an institution of learning creditable to the 
United Brethren Church the friends of the College entered upon the 
second quarter ot a century with new hope and aspiration. 


President Bierman served successfully until the spring of 1897 
when he was succeeded by Rev. Hervin U. Roop, Ph.D., who held the 
office till Jan. 1, 1906, after which time the administration was in the 
hands of the Executive Committee and the Faculty until the election 
of Rev. A. P. Funkhouser, A.M., March 9, 1906. 

The presidency of Dr. Roop stands out as the period when the 
group system in the College curriculum was introduced, when the 
athletic field was acquired, when the disastrous fire of December 2-1, 
1904 occurred, sweeping away the Administration Building in a few 
hours, and when several new buildings arose on the campus. — Engle 
Music Hall 1899, and the Carnegie Library and Ladies Dormitory in 
1904. The recuperative powers of the institution were put to the test 
by the destruction of the main building. At a meeting held January 
5th, 1905, the friends of the College resolved, amid unusual enthu- 
siasm to rebuild at once and with the stimulous of a gift of fifty thou- 
sand dollars from Andrew Carnegie received by the President, plans 
were matured by which to raise one hundred thousand dollars for this 
purpose. The erection of three new buildings was projected — the 
Men's Dormitory, the Central Heating Plant and the new Administra- 
tion Building, the latter being completed under the supervision of 
President Funkhouser, whose term of office is marked also by a 
strenuous effort to straighten out the tangled threads in the financial 
skein and to meet the debt which rose to almost or altogether ninety 
thousand dollars. Bonds were issued to the amount of fifty thousand 
dollars and the co-operative college circles organized to relieve the 
financial conditions. 

Rev. Lawrence Keister, S.T.B.,D.D.,was elected president of the 
College June 10, 1907, at the. annual session of the Board of Trustees. 
On the 12th of June he assumed the duties of the office bringing to 
the task an earnestness and devotion that awakened a new interest 
among the students, the Faculty and the friends of the institution and 
also solicited the money to secure the much needed equipment for the 
Science Department. When school opened September 11, 1907 the 
sky above Lebanon Valley College was bright with promise. A new 
chord of hannony had been touched and with the ideal of the Christ- 
ian College ever before its managers and patrons and a holy purpose 
forever within them their desire is unitedly to move forward confid- 
ing in Him who says to His followers to-day : ' ' All power is given 
unto me in heaven and on earth." 


Buildings and Grounds 

There are seven buildings on the campus in use, the Carnegie 
Library, the Engle Music Hall, the Women's Dormitory, the Men's 
Dormitory, the Academy Building, the Heating Plant, and the 
Administration building. 

THE CARNEGIE LIBRARY, a building of the Gothic style of 
architecture, was erected in 1904. It contains reading rooms, stack 
rooms, and seminar rooms, together with a large assembly room, at 
present used for general lecture purposes, and later intended to be 
converted into a stack room. 

THE ENGLE MUSIC HALL, of Hummelstown brownstone, 
erected in 1889, contains the college chapel, used for all large college 
gatherings, a director's office and studio, practice rooms, and a large 
society hall. The building is well equipped with pianos and a large 
pipe organ. 

THE WOMEN'S DORMITORY was erected in 1905, and is a 
building of beautiful proportions. In addition to rooms which will 
accommodate forty-:five students, there are a society hall, a dining hall, 
a well equipped kitchen, and a laundry. 

THE MEN'S DORMITORY is a modern structure of brick with 
Indiana limestone trimmings. It contains single and double rooms 
and sixteen suites of two bed rooms with a separate study room. 
These afford accommodations for eighty-five students. This building 
was also erected in 1905. 

THE ACADEMY BUILDING, the original building of the in- 
stitution, and acquired by gift in 1866 when the College was founded, 
is now used as a dormitory and recitation hall for the academy 

THE HEATING PLANT, erected in 1905, is in harmony with 
the buildings above described. It contains a low pressure heating 
system of the most perfect construction and supplies the heat for all 
the buildings on the campus. It is constructed with a view to the in- 
stallation of a light plant. 

THE ADMINISTRATION BUILDING, is the most important 
and central of the buildings. It is built of buff brick with terra cot- 
ta trimmings, three stories high. It contains the recitation rooms of 
the College and the laboratories of the science denartment. The 


department of art has here commodious and modern quarters. The 
administration offices of fire proof construction are on the first floor. 

To accommodate all these building's, the campus, orig-inally of 
ten acres, has been recently enlarged by purchase. It occupies a 
hig-h point in the cenlre of the town of Annville and is within easy 
access of all trolley and railroad lines 

The athletic field of five and one half acres is well located and 
admirably adapted to the purposes for which it is intended. On it 
are erected a good grand stand and bleachers. 

Religious Work. 

Recognizing that most of its students come from Christian fam- 
ilies, the College has always tried to furnish religious training. It 
believes in cultivating the heart as well as the mind, and encourages^ 
all wholesome means of promoting Christian influence. 

Each school morning, a regular service is held in the college 
chapel, at which the students are required to be present. At this 
service there is singing, reading of scripture, and prayer. Members 
of the Faculty conduct this service. 

A students' prayer meeting is held once a week, and opportunities 
for Bible study and mission study are ofl'ered by the Christian asso- 
ciation in addition to those afforded by the regular curriculum. 

A Bible Normal class is conducted to train Sunday school teach- 
ers. The course extends over one year and a diploma is granted to 
all who complete the course. 

All resident students of the College are required to attend public 
worship in churches of their choice every Sunday. 

The religious life during the past year has been earnest and help- 
ful, and patrons may feel satisfied that high, moral influences are 
being exerted constantly over their children. 

College Orgcii^izatlons. 

p, , . The College has flourishing Young Men's and 

Young Women's Christian Associations, which hold 
Assocaations. regular weekly devotional services and conduct 
special courses of Bible and mission study, often in charge of mem- 
bers of the Faculty. 

These organizations frequently are visited by the general secre- 
taries, who infuse enthusiasm into the work. Membership is volun- 


tary, and the success of these societies is an almost certain index of 
the real condition of the religious life at Lebanon Valley College. 

Under these auspices numerous public lectures, entertainments, 
and socials are held, so that they contribute incalcuably to the plea- 
sure of the student body. They are the centre of the spiritual wel- 
fare of the students and deserve the hearty support of all connected 
with the College. 

Excellent opportunities for literary improvement 
Literary ^^^ parliamentary training" are afforded by the societies 
Societies ^^ ^^^ college. There are three of these societies — one 
sustained by the young ladies, the Clionian, and two by the young 
men, the Kalozetean and the Philokosmian. They meet every Fri- 
day evening in their well furnished halls for literary exercises con- 
sisting of orations, essays, and debates. These societies are con- 
sidered valuable agencies in college work, and students are advised 
to unite with one of them. 

The Athletic Association is composed of all stu- 
. . dents and others connected with the College, who 

Association ^^^ ^^^q required athletic fee. It elects besides its 
own officers, the managers of the various athletic teams. 

The direct supervision of athletics is in the hands of the committee 
of the association, called the executive board of athletics. This 
board is made up of seven members as follows : Two members of the 
Faculty of the college ; the president of the association, who is ex- 
officio president of the board ; the base ball, foot ball, and basket ball 
managers, and the treasurer of the association. 

The Biological Field Club offers to any student of 
mo ogica ^j^g College an opportunity to collect, study, and discuss 
objects of interest in the field of living nature. Fre- 
quent excursions are made to places of special interest to members of 

the club. 

The Historical Society of Lebanon Valley College 
IS onca ^g organized by the students who have elected the his- 
ocie y torical-political group together with such others as 
may be especially interested in historical studies. The purpose of 
the organization is to stimulate among the students the spirit of his- 
torical research. Members of the society are collecting material for 
a museum, which will be arranged in proper form as soon as suitable 
provision can be made in one of the new buildings. The society 
holds stated meetings, at which papers are read and subjects of his- 
toric importance are discussed. The members of the society from 
time to time visit places of historic note. 


In order to stimulate interest in the study of the 
® ®*'" ^"" modern languages, at the request of the junior and 
guage a senior students of the modern languag'e group, a club 
has been formed under the direction of the adviser of the group. 
The club meets every third Saturday afternoon or evening as occa- 
sion suggests. Student programs alternate with lectures by the 
teachers in the department. 

Library and Recadmg R.ooms 

The beautiful new Carnegie Library Building furnishes commo- 
dious quarters for the growing library of the College. Each depart- 
ment has its particular books for reference in addition to the large num- 
ber of volumes for general reference and study. An annual amount 
is appropriated by the Board of Trustees for the purchase of new 
books, and plans are being made for the enlargement of the library 
in order to meet the growing needs of the College. 

Two large reading rooms on the first floor, splendidly lighted and 
ventilated, and beautifully furnished, are provided with the leading 
magazines and daily papers. Periodicals devoted to the special work 
of each department are here, as well as magazines of general litera- 
ture. On the second floor are six seminar rooms designed to be 
equipped with the special works of reference for the various depart- 
ments, where students doing the most serious work may study undis- 


The northern half of the Administration Building is fitted for 
work in science. The Chemical laboratory occupies the first floor, 
the Physical the second, and the Biological the third. Each depart- 
ment has its general laboratory seventy feet by twenty eight. These 
rooms are planned for practical working laboratories and the student 
will find everything arranged for his convenience. Stock rooms 
join the laboratories and the lecture rooms have seats with tablet 
arms. Risers g'ive each student full view of the lecture table. 

Literary ai^d Musical Advai^tages 

During the college year, the student body has the privilege of 
hearing lectures and talks delivered by resident professors and men 
of note in church and literary circles. 


The department of music tog-ether with the department of 
public speaking- presents a number of prog-rams during- the year for 
the pleasure and benefit of the general student body. Concerts and 
recitals by prominent musicians are given under the patronage of 
the department of music with the aim of creating in the student an 
appreciation for the best in art. 

For the last two years a lively interest in dramatics has been 
aroused and sustained largely through the production of Shakes- 
perean plays under the direction of the department of public speak- 
ing. Various college organizations have likewise presented plays of 
a high grade. These efforts in production help to broaden the 
interests of the student and to increase his powers for aesthetic ap- 

A further means of enjoyment and education is the evening course 
of five numbers including lectures and concert performers under 
the management of the Christian associations of the College. 


The College offers a limited number of one-hundred-dollar free 
tuition scholarships to honor graduates of State Normal Schools and 
approved high schools and academies. One scholarship is alloted to 
the first honor g-raduate of our own academy. 

Graduates of high schools and academies whose standard is not 
equal to that of our own academy, may enter the senior year of the 
academy and become competitors for our own academy scholarship. 

Honor graduates of preparatory schools who have conditions may 
be allowed to make them up in the freshmen year. If the first 
semester's work shows a majority of [A's and nothing less than B in 
all work including conditions, a scholarship may be awarded. 

The Faculty and Executive Committee shall make all scholarship 

Graduate Work 

Since all its members are fully occupied with undergraduate work, 
the Faculty deems it unwise to offer any work for the degree of Mas- 
ter of Arts during the coming year. In rare cases sufficient resident 
work upon certain advanced courses given may be outlined. But as 
special action would be required in each case, no detailed announce- 
ment can be made here. All inquiries about graduate work should 
be addressed to the Dean. 



^ , . The following are the advisers for the students in 

each of the five groups in which courses of instruction are 
offered: For the classical group, Professor Spangler; for the mathemat- 
ical-physical, Professor Bender ; for the chemical-biological. Professor 
Derickson ; for the historical-political, Professor Shenk ; for the 
modern language. Professor Engle ; for the freshman class, Professor 
John^ and for the Academy, Professor Spessard. The students of 
each group are amenable to the advisers in all matters of conduct, 
study and discipline. He is to grant leave of absence, permission to 
go out of ,town, and excuses. His approval is necessary before a stu- 
dent may register for or enter upon any course of study, or discon- 
tinue any work. He is the medium of communication between the 
Faculty and the students of his group, and in a general way stands 
to his students in the relation of friendly counsellor. 

. It is earnestly desired that students may be in- 

*^ fluenced to good conduct and diligence by higher 

motives than fear of punishment. The sense of duty and honor, the 
courteous and general] feelings natural to young men and women 
engaged in literary pursuits, are appealed to as the best regulators 
of conduct. It is the ^policy of the administraticn to allow in all 
things as much liberty as will not be abused, and the students are 
invited and expected to co-operate with the Faculty ; but good order 
and discipline will be strictly maintained and misconduct punished 
by adequate penalties. The lav/s of the College are as few and 
simple as the proper regulation of a community of young men and 
women will .permit. The College will not place its stamp or bestow 
its honors upon anyone who is not willing to deport himself becom- 
ingly. No hazing of any kind will be permitted. Every unexcused 
absence from any college duty, every failure or misdemeanor of a 
student is reported to the Faculty, and a record made of the same. 

The maximum number of hours, conditioned, 
dasss ica 30i\ permitted for senior standing is four ; for junior 
standing six, for sophomore eight, and for freshman — to be decided 
for individual student by the committee on classification. 

The permitted number of extra hours of work above that pre- 
scribed by the curriculum is limited by the student's record for pre- 
vious years as follows : 

(a) Majority of A's, nothing less than B — no limit. 

(b) Majority of B's, nothing less than C — four hour?. 

(c) Lower record than (b) — no extra hours. 


The scholarship of students is determined by 
Class Manning result of examinations and daily recitations 
combined. The grades are carefully recorded. 

Reports of standing- will be made to parent or guardian at end of 
each term when desired by them, or when the Faculty deems it 
expedient. The standing is indicated generally by classification in 
six groups, as follows : 

A signifies that the record of the student is distinguished. 
B signifies that the record of the student is very good. 
C signifies that the record is good. 
D signifies the lowest sustained record. 

E (conditioned) imposes a condition on the student. Conditions 
incurred in January must be made up by June ; conditions incurred 
in June must be made up by September. Failing to make up a 
condition at the time appointed is equal to a record F. 

F (failed completely) signifies that the student must drop or 
repeat the subjects, and cannot be admitted to subjects dependent 

If the student's record as a whole is poor, he may be required to 
repeat certain subjects, to repeat the year, or to withdraw. 

The degree of bachelor of arts is conferred, by 
uegree ^ ^^^^ ^^ ^j^^ Board of Trustees on recommendation of 

and Diploma i]^q Faculty, upon students who have satisfactorily 
completed any of the groups.

German Language and Literature. 


The courses in this department are designed to give the student 
a general knowledge and understanding of the German language, 
life, literature and thought. They bring the student into touch 
with the character and genius of the German people. 

Special emphasis is laid upon social conditions and political 
events, and upon the relations of the German to the English and to 
the classical languages. 

To this end systematic attention is paid to pronunciation, read- 
ing, etymology and conversation. In the advanced courses special 
emphasis is laid upon the study of the literature. The idiomatic sen- 
tence and modern colloquial language form the basis of the work in 
composition. In order to give students an opportunity to become 
familiar with the spoken idioms, the translation into English is dis- 
continued as soon as possible and expressive reading of the German 
text with free reproduction is substituted ; the students begin early 
to use the German in recitations, and several of the advanced courses 
are conducted almost entirely in German. Reading and translation 
at sight are cultivated. Private reading of assigned texts accom- 
panies the work in the advanced courses. 

Other texts may at- times be substituted for some of those indi- 

1. First Year German — Five hours. First Semester.

The courses of instruction cover four years, They are recog- 
nized as being as valuable in developing the powers of the mind as 
the other courses in the college curriculum, in that they develop the 
powers of observation and thought essential to the understanding of 
all phases of the phenomena of human existence. 

The courses have been outlined with a three fold purpose in view. 

First, to meet ths demand for a general training in biology, 
caused by the recently established conclusion among educators, that 
a knowledge of the principles of biology is not only a useful but an 
essential factor in any course of training in which social and moral 
questions are to be considered. 


Second, to meet the demand of the high schools for college 
trained teachers in biology. 

Third, to lay a broad foundation in the science for those who 
desire to pursue post graduate courses in universities and medical 

Students desiring to elect a single year's work in biology are ad- 
vised to elect 1 — b ; if two years, 1 — a and 1 — b or 1 — b and 3 and 4, 
depending on the object in view. Those contemplating a career in 
medicine, or the profession of teaching biology or a post graduate 
course in biology, are urged to complete all the courses offered. 

Description of Courses

and two laboratory periods of two hours each, each week. Through- 
out the year. The object of the course is to give the student a broad 
general knowledge of the plant kingdom. The form, structure and 
functioning of one or more types of each of the divisions of algae, 
fugae, liverworts, mosses, ferns and flowering plants, are studied. 

Special attention is given to the ontogeny and phylogeny of the 
several groups suggestive of evolution. 

Experiments are performed in the physiological laboratory to de- 
termine some of the relations of plants to water, gravitation, temper- 
ature and light. Several types of seeds are studied as to their struc- 
ture, germination and development. The principals of classification 
are learned by the analysis and identification of representatives of at 
least-twenty-five orders of spermatophytes. 

The laboratory and class room work is supplemented by frequent 
field trips. 

Each student is supplied with a compound microscope, dissecting 
instruments, note and drawing materials and portfolio. 

Required of freshmen in chemical-biological group. Elective for 

Biology i-b. General Biology. Four hours throughout the year. 

To be preceded by course 1 in drawing. Three lectures and two 
laboratory periods of two hours each, each week. 

The principles of biology are learned by making a careful com- 
parative study of representatives of several phyla of plants and ani- 
mals. In the laboratory particular attention is given to animal forms 
The amoeba, euglena, paramoecium, vorticella, hydra, starfish, earth- 
worm, crayfish, grasshopper, mussel and frog are studied. A careful 
study is made of the embryology of the frog. The process of develop- 


ment is closely watched from the segmentine of the egg until 
metamorphosis takes place. Each student is taught the principles of 
technic by preparing and sectioning embryos at various stages of 
development. From these and other microscopic preparations the 
development of the internal organs is studied. 

Each student is required to keep a record of all work done in the 
laboratory in carefully prepared notes and drawings.

Departmei>kt of Oratory and Public Speaking 


The art of oratory rests upon certain laws of nature, and it is 
the purpose of the department to present the work with this aim in 
view. The value of public speech is recognized and emphasized as 
a most powerful agency and as an avenue to usefulness. 

In the instruction special stress is laid upon originality and the 
development of individuality. Elocution is taught as the oral inter- 
pretation of literature — and a high standard of selections is main- 
tained. The full course consists of three years — including the re- 
quired year in the College. Students with previous training may 
finish it in less time.

Lebano!\ Valley Academy 

The Academy was established in 1866. For forty-two years it 
has cherished the ideals of full and accurate scholarship, and the de- 
velopment of character that fits one for the larg^est service to society. 
From its inception eolleg"e preparation has been its main purpose. 
But its curriculum has been well adapted to the needs of those who 
have entered immediately on practical life or professional study. 

The Academy is an integral part of the College and profits by the 
proximity of students engaged in higher studies ; by the ready access 
to the library, athletic field, literary societies, dormitory and labora- 
tory privileges and by the facility in combining courses of study in 
the Academy with others in the College and Conservatory. 

Its instructors have been chosen with reference to the above 
named ideals and mutual confidence and service have been maintained 
between faculty and students. 


The applicant should be at least twelve years of age. It is desir- 
able that he shall have completed the ordinary common school 
branches. Classes however are sometimes formed in language, 
arithmetic, history, and geography when deemed necessary. In gen- 
eral it is for the student's advantage to enter in September, or less 
preferable at the beginning of the second half year. However the 
applicant usually finds enough work if he should enter at any time. 

Each student for admission shall bring with him a certified state- 
ment of work done in the school last attended. Credit will be given 
for work thus certified. Should an applicant fail to present this 
certificate, he shall take an informal examination in the common 
school branches. He will then be assigned work at the discretion of 
the Principal. No student will be admitted until his registration is 
completed at the office, room number one. 


Examinations are held at the close of each half year. At this 
time reports are sent to parents or guardians. More frequent reports 
are sent when requested by parents. In the Academy records, A 


signifies excellent ; B, very good ; C, fair ; D, low but passing ; E, 
conditioned; F, failing; R, repeat in class. An "E" record may be 
removed by a test on any part of the course in which the record is 
poor; an "F" record may be removed by an extended examination 
on the payment of a special fee of two dollars. 


If, in any semester, a student have two absences in any subject 
he shall either take a test on the subject matter passed over in his 
absence or by doing specially assigned work satisfy the professor in 
charge that he has a creditable knowledge of the work passed over. 
If the two absences in question are unexcused the student shall take 
the test and pay a fee of one dollar. For detailed information, see 
the absence rules of the College.

Electloi^ of Studies 

While there are two definitely prescribed courses in the Acad- 
emy, there is considerable room for election of courses that have 
special value to students intending to specialize. 

The Principal advises the students what subjects are fundamental 
to professional and engineering courses. 


The required credit for graduation, as outlined in the Classical 
and Scientific Courses, is sixteen units. Provided that the student 
shall have completed at least the three units in Mathematics, the 
three units in English, four units of Latin, two units of German, one 
laboratory science, and one unit of history. 

In general the pursuance of a four or five-hour subject per week 
per year constitutes a unit. Corresponding credits are given for 
recitations reciting fewer times per week. However, all credits are 
based upon the report of the committee of the Association of Teach- 
ers of Secondary Schools. In short, the completion of seventy-two 
hours of work as above outlined entitles the student to a diploma of 
graduation. If said student desires to continue work in Lebanon 
Valley College he shall arrange his work so as to meet the entrance 
requirements for the several courses. 

Sub-Preparatory Course 

Sometimes students of mature age come to us not fully prepared 
to enter the Academy. They have for various reasons attended 


school but a short time and find it embarassing to enter the public 
schools with scholars so much youngfer than themselves. For these 
we make provision. However, at least sixteen hours of regular 
Academy work is required for classification. 

Arithmetic, U. S. History, Grammar, Book-keeping-, and Ele- 
mentary Physiology are positive requirements for academic regis- 

Facts to be Considered 

A one hundred dollar scholarship is awarded each year to the 
Academy graduate who has, according to the vote of the Faculty, 
made the best class record and deported himself in accordance with 

Academy students are admitted to all social privileges of the Col- 
lege. Excellent opportunities are offered for self improvement in 
the Literary societies and Christian associations. 

The Normal Department 

The object of the Normal Department is to give special instruc- 
tion to young men and women who desire to teach in our public 

All the fundamental branches in which teachers are required to 
be examined are systematically and thoroughly reviewed and daily 
instruction is given in the principles of teaching and the art of school 

The work in this department is continued throughout the year. 
During the spring term, which begins about the time public schools 
close, special teachers are employed to accommodate the increasing 
numbers. These teachers are the best public school teachers obtain- 
able who know just what points to emphasize in preparation.

Location and Equipment 

The Engle Music Hall is a handsome three-story stone 
structure. It contains a fine auditorium witli large pipe organ, 
director's room, and nine practice rooms, waiting and writing room 
for student's use, large society rooms, lavatories, etc. The whole 
building is lighted by electricity and heated by steam, and designed 
and furnished with a view to having it complete in every respect for 
the study of music in all its branches. A complete musical education 
from the very first steps to the highest artistic excellence may be 
secured. The director will use every effort to obtain positions for 
those students who have finished the courses, and who may wish to 
teach or perform in public. 


The department has for its object, the foundation and diffusion 
of a high and thorough musical education. The methods used are 
those followed by the leading European conservatories. The courses 
are broad, symstematic, progressive, and as rapid as possible, and 
the conservatory offers the means for a complete education in 
musical art at a moderate cost. 


Herbert Oldham, Director 

Director Oldham was born near London and educated there. He 
was choir boy in Christ Church Cathedral from the age of six years 
to that of seventeen. Studied the pianoforte, harmony, pipe organ, 
and voice, under Sir R. P. Stewart. After completing the academic 
course in Trinity College, Dublin, he studied pipe organ and com- 
position with Sir John Stainer, organist of St. Paul's, London, the 
pianoforte with Sir Walter McFarren, of Cambridge University, and 
voice training with Signor Randegger, London. Later he went to 
Frankfort, where he studied under Joachim Raff ; from there to 
Paris, studying under Emil Haberbier. In 1883 Professor Oldham 
toured through the United States as solo pianist to Camilla Urso, 
playing in two hundred and ninety-seven cities and towns. He then 
located in Toledo, Iowa, as director of the conservatory of Western 
College. Later he lived in Lincoln^ Nebraska, and left Le Marsj 
Iowa, to take the direction of Ivebanon Valley College Department 
of Music. 

Miss Florence A. Roach 

Miss Roach, a diploma pupil of Madame Pittoria Coppi Baldisseri, 
of Florence, Italy, is well equipped for her position as instructor of 
voice. Upon her graduation from High School she entered De Pauw 
University, Greencastle, Indiana, and after a course of study in the 
academic and music departments there, she went abroad with one of 
her teachers for more advanced work. While abroad Miss Roach 
studied in Florence, Italy, with Madame Baldisseri of the famous 
Marchesi School, and aside from the development of her own voice 
she made a specialty of studying the placement and tone production 
of different voices under the personal training of Madame Baldisseri. 
Upon her return to America Miss Roach accepted the position as 
vocal instructor in Albany College, Albany, Oregon. From there 
after another course of study of tone production and oratorio with the 
Masters, Grosh and Dr. Allum, of Chicago, she took up her work in 
Lebanon Valley. Miss Roach has appeared in concert work through- 
out the East and West and has always been prominent in glee and 
choir work. 


The course is divided into sixteen grades, equalling four grades 
per annum for four years work. A comprehensive study of the stand- 
ard literature of instructive piano work is absolutely necessary to 
the piano student and these are studied through the various grades. 


The new school of studies edited by Carl Thumer and published in 
sixteen grades, along with Koeler's and Plaidy's Teehnical Exercises 
are the basis for the technical and etude work through all the grades. 


It is the aim of this department to build up the voice, beginning 
with the simplest forms of pure tone production and proceeding sys- 
tematically to advanced vocalization. Perfect breath control, relaxa- 
tion and correct tone placing are the cardinal points in voice culture, 
and these are carefully and rigidly insisted upon. Phrasing, enunci- 
ation and resonance are also given important consideration in the 
course. Special attention is paid to the needs of individual voices, 
and the studies are varied accordingly. 


The Director has had twenty-five years' experience as concert 
and church organist, and has studied and played in Great Britain, 
Germany and the United States. 

The student must be advanced to at least the sixth grade in the 
pianoforte course before taking up the study of the organ. 

The course prepared is based on the best methods of England, 
France and Germany, and with a view to educating the student in 
the most thorough manner. Special attention is given to the proper 
modes of service playing, organ accompaniments, etc., as well as 
concert or recital playing.
