The Summer School
The Summer School had one of its most successful years during the past summer. The attendance was the largest on record. There were over 700 students in the Cambridge Department, not including those who attended the courses on Medicine and Dentistry in Boston,. In general the students were very enthusiastic, and a high standard was maintained in the courses.
The largest courses were those in English Composition, the course, on Education by Professor Hanus, and a course on the Principles of Design by Dr. Denman Ross. A number of new courses were introduced, which proved very popular, Advanced Latin and Greek were given for the first time, and the former attracted the greater number of students. A new course on Shakespeare by Professor Baker was also very well attended. These new courses will all be repeated next year. Other large courses were psychology by Dr. Robert MacDougal, Geology, under Prof. N. S. Shaler, and Geography, under Dr. R. A. Daly.
