At the last meeting of the Corporation it was voted to open a summer camp in history for students especially interested in the subject, on Squam Lake, N. H., from June 24 to September 2. Professor H. J. Hughes will be in charge of the camp, and Mr. R. M. Johnston, instructor in history, will supervise the actual work. A tuition fee of $20 will be charged for the full period. Tents will be provided and meals will be served at the Engineering Camp, which is situated nearby. The charge for board and lodging will be $7.50 a week. In connection with the camp will be provided a library and all facilities for study.
The camp is intended only for such students in history as have attained a satisfactory grade in their studies. There will be no regular lectures and men will be masters of their own time. There will, however, be informal conferences and discussions on the larger aspects of history, or on such questions as may arise from individual reading. If the work accomplished is of a satisfactory kind students intending to take a degree with distinction in history may be credited with it at the discretion of the department under which they are working.
Application to join the camp should be made not later than June 1 to Mr. R. M. Johnston, 44 Shepard street.
