JOHN 5. CROHBIE,
JUNE 19th, I854.-APRIL 16th, 1893.
When the Adelphi opened its doors in Septeml r, 1892, there
sat at the desk in the Principals office, a man in the prime of life,
full of enthusiasm, eager to enter upon his new work, and hopeful
for the advancement of the Academy. Seven months later the
door of that office was locked g a wreath of ivy lay upon the closed
desk, which was draped with the emblems of sorrow. He who hail
looked forward to years of service here, had finished his work, and
having been faithful unto death, was crowned with glory and honor.
Mr. Crombie came to Brooklyn with a record of brilliant
scholarship and of sixteen years of successful work. He won all
hearts by his manliness, the gentleness which was born of Christian
love, and the faithfulness with which he performed every duty. In
February there came to him suddenly the illness which was to be
fatal. He was called to endure great suffering, which he bore with
calm resignation, never once murmuring that he must close his life-
work so early and be so soon separated from wife and children.
On the morning of April 16th, from his useful and happy life he
was exalted to a higher sphere of duty and felicity. The world is the
better for such a man's life in it, and every one of us ought
to be the better because he has lived and died among us. We can
best honor his memory by imitating his virtues and cherishing the
institution which lay so near his heart.
" I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, write, Blessed are the
dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they
may rest from their labors g and their works do follow them."

The Adelphi Academy.
Historical Sketch.-The Adelphi Academy derives a remote
origin from a school for boys which was projected in February,
1863, .by Edward Bunker and Aaron Chadwick. During the sum-
mer these gentlemen transferred their school to Mr. john Lock-
wood, a man of rare ability as a teacher, who began his labors in
September, 1863, in buildings upon Adelphi Street, with eleven
pupils. Under his management the increase of numbers in attend-
ance at the Academy was remarkably rapid. Systematic physical
training under Mr. T. I. Ellinwood was a marked feature of the
Academy life, and Mr. Ellinwood became associated .with Mr.
Lockwood in the management of the Academy. So much interest
was manifested in the development of a representative school upon
the Hill that a number of patrons took a pecuniary interest in the
acquisition of new grounds and buildings. The present site of the
institution was purchased and the corner stone of the original
Lafayette Avenue building was laid july z3d, 1867, by the Rev.
Henry Ward Beecher, after appropriate ceremonies in the Clinton
Avenue Congregational Church.
On the 12th of the following November Prof. Warren T. Web-
ster began his long connection with the Adelphi. Among the found-
ers ofthe Academy, Prof. Webster's name should occupy a very prom-
inent place. He has remained continuously in the Adelphi since
1867, and has contributed thereto all the unique force of his per-
sonality. When the Adelphi was preparing for removal to the
16 ADELPHI ACADEMY.
new site it expanded its character as well as its environment and
became coeducational. The change, viewed with a doubt at first
by some, has been amply justified by time and experience. In
February, 1868, the Academy first occupied its new home with num-
bers multiplied almost forty-four-fold beyond its initial attendance
five years before. Nevertheless the expense of maintaining the
equipment had become so great that Mr. Lockwood, in the summer
of 1869, relinquished the ownership of the institution to the gentle-
men who had already given him material support. They assumed
the responsibility with the intention of transforming the Adelphi
from a private into a public institution and of making it the property
of the community. Mr. Wm. S. Woodward and twenty other citizens
provided the necessary funds to establish the Academy upon its
new basis, and they also secured a charter of incorporation from the
Board of Regents of the University. These fathers of the Adelphi
were : William S. Woodward, Buckley T. Benton, Alfred S. Barnes,
Alfred C. Barnes, William H. Wallace, Charles H. Noyes, Charles
Evans, Gen. Henry W. Slocum, Samuel M. Mills, Thomas Vernon,
joseph C. Hutchison, M.D., Charles E. Hill, Enos N. Taft, Rev.
Dr. Wm. lves Budington, john Davol, Charles Pratt, Samuel
Crowell, Peter M. Dingee, Joseph P. Elliott, M.D., Samuel Wright
and Truman I. Ellinwood.
During the winter of 1870-71 a number of gentlemen, more
than one hundred in all, contributed 3355o,ooo for the benefit of the
Academyf By gifts from several of the Trustees and from other
friends of the Academy, the western wing was built in 1873, and in
1880 the eastern wing was added by gifts from Charles Pratt and
Hayden W. Wheeler, members of the Board of Trustees.
The increasing number applying for admission required still
larger accommodations, and in 1886 Mr. Charles Pratt, President
of the Board of Trustees, by a gift of 3B16o,ooo, provided means for
a new building upon the following conditions:
U That it should be the aim of the Institution to provide
improved apparatus and appliances for teaching, and to employ a
sufhcient number of the best instructors with adequate salaries, and
that the total number and the age of pupils should be limited to
correspond with the carrying out of this idea, and further, that when
ADELPHI AGADEMY. 17
this result should be accomplished, and the annual surplus revenue
of the school in any year should equal or exceed f155,ooo, then each
year in which the surplus revenue equals or exceeds the said
amount, at least 5,155,000 should be set apart towards forming a
permanent fund, equal to the sum donated, the income of which
should, as soon as sufficient, be applied to the support of a Depart-
ment of Physical Education and the Laws of Health."
This fund was accepted on the conditions proposed, and the
new building was substantially completed and ready for occupancy
at the beginning of the school year, September, 1888.
The Adelphi Academy during this first quarter century of its
corporate existence has grown to be the possessor of about a half-
million of dollars' worth of property and the -educational home of
about one thousand pupils. It is not a private speculation, but a
public benefaction. It belongs to no one man or set of men, but to
the whole community. Should the receipts be greater than the
expenditures the community alone will be the gainers. The con-
trolling purpose of the founders who have made these gifts to the
public was to advance the cause of education and the common Wel-
fare by bringing hundreds of our most 'promising children and
youth under influences that should foster in them a nobler manhood
and womanhood 5 to lay broad and deep the foundations of their
usefulness and happiness and so to plant in the heart of this great
city an institution that should go on expanding and blessing long
after its founders had passed away.
Great opportunities disclose greater needs. The Adelphi
Academy to-day can do more good and needs more help than at
any time during its twenty-Eve years of life.
Departments of the Academy and Terms of Admission.-
The courses of study and methods of instruction are designed to
furnish a thorough and systematic education from the very begin-
ning to the time when the student is either equipped for the active
work of mature life, or is ready to enter upon the special training
of university studies.
18 ADELPHI ACADEMY.
The Adelphi Academy comprises five divisions: The Kinder-
garten, the Academic Department, the Collegiate Bepantment, the
Art .Dfpartmerngiasnd fthe. Bepa'r1m'ren't 'OT Physical Culture.
The Kindergarten Course may extend through three years. It
forms an admirable preparation for the Work of the Primary grades.
A training-class for teachers is maintained in connection with the
Kindergarten. Into the Kindergarten itself children four years old
and upward are admitted. They have careful attention from the
time of reaching the building until they leave, and are trained by
the most approved methods. They are kept quite separate from
the main body of students. A Visit to the Kindergarten will prove
its best recommendation. There are skilful and approved teachers,
a large number of assistants and an ample supply of every needful
equipment. The hours of session are from 9 A. M. to I2 M.
Parents of the pupils are at all times welcome in the Kindergarten
rooms. Other visitors are requested to apply for admission in the
Bursar's office. The vacations are the same as in other departments
of the Academy.
The Academic Department comprises eight classes, including
the three Primary grades, formerly called "Preparatory" in the
Adelphi. Pupils may be admitted to this department who have
attained the age of six years or over. The course of study is com-
pleted in eight years. The studies of the eighth year involve what
is usually called 'fthe High-School grade" of work. Rooms and
hours of the school session in this department are so arranged that
pupils of the three primary grades do not come in contact with
The Collegiate Department includes four years of study, but
the student may select any one of three courses in the department,
viz., the Classical Course, the Literary thereafter to be called the
Collegiatej Course and the Scientific Course.
The Classical Course affords a thorough preparation for any
American university, and graduates from this course will have read
as much Latin and Greek as will satisfy collegiate requirements as
far as the end of Sophomore year.
-Wg, 2 ,--9,0
ADELPHI ACADEMY. 21
The 'Collegiate Course offers a comprehensive education in
Languages, Literature, History and Politics, Philosophy and the
Fine Arts, and Natural Science.
The Scientific Course gives a thorough preparation for any
advanced scientific or technical college, while graduates from this
course will have an assured practical knowledge of Physics, Chem-
istry, Mathematics and its applications in Mechanics and Surveying,
l-Iistory and Languages, including the mother-tongue. The choice
of elective studies in any of these courses is made subject to the
approval of the Faculty.
The diploma of the Academy is given to every student who com-
pletes any one of these prescribed courses?" If any regular student
in the Collegiate Department goes from the Academy to a college or
university, the diploma of- the Academy may be granted to him or
her in due course upon evidence that an equivalent of the remain-
ing work in the Adelphi curriculum has been satisfactorily performed
in the class-rooms of such a college or university.
In the Art Department students may follow special lines of
work, or may take a more systematic and comprehensive course,
four years in length.
The Department of Physical Culture offers facilities for out-
door and indoor exercise of all kinds and grades. From the be-
ginning of the Adelphi Academy this Department has performed an
important- and prominent work in it. The curriculum of this De-
partment is coterminous in years with that of the Academy, and
special students are 'enabled to pursue special lines of exercise un-
der competent direction.
Admission of Students.-The regular examinations for ad-
mission will take place on june 13, 1894, and on September 19, zo
and zr, 1894, at the Academy. Admission at any time is granted to
those Who pass satisfactory examinations in the work that has been
done by the classes which they propose to enter. Students from other
schools who have not had all the studies offered in the earlier years
rin the year 1894 the former usage of allowing classical students to graduate with
only three years of work in the Collegiate Department will be observed for the last time.

of the Adelphi, may be admitted under special conditions, enabling
them to make up the omitted work. Pupils from the Brooklyn
Public Schools will he exempted from examinations for admission to
the Academic Department on those subjects for which they present
a certificate showing a standing of not less than 75 per cent.
Persons who wish to enter the Academy for the purpose of
studying special subjects must give satisfactory evidence of ability
to'pursue such studies, and must conform to all the regulations pre-
scribed for those in the regular courses. The privilege of pursuing
special subjects will be withdrawn from all who fail to comply with
such regulations. . - Q
A ADELP1-11 ACADEMY. 23
The Course of Study.
The new course of study for the Adelphi Academy, herewith
presented, has been partly anticipated during the present year and
will be the normal curriculum of the school after the opening of
the next Fall term in September, 1894. Arrangements will be made
wherever necessary to facilitate the transfer of existing classes
from the old curriculum to the new one. For a year or two, conse-
quently, it will not be possible to avoid a few deviations from the
new curriculum in minor points of detail.
The attention of the community is especially invited to the
following principal features of the new Adelphi curriculum :
Firsl. The Early Study of Modern Languages. The study of
modern languages begins among the primary grades. During the
five years after leaving the Kindergarten the pupil will be enabled
to give four years to German. and two years to French, and he may
make the study of either language almost continuous, if he wishes,
from that time until graduation. German and French are taught
to the little ones conversationally, and the beginnings of Latin study
are introduced in a partly similar way. English, German, French
and Latin are thus closely associated as language studies rather than
as grammar studies, and they are all made to contribute together
to the acquisition of a copious and well-chosen vocabulary in the
mother-tongue. Latin and Greek are each begun one year earlier
Sammi. The Correlation of Studies. In the Academic grades,
especially, the studies of English, History, Geography and Natural
History, are closelyfaffiliated with one another' upon' a systematic
plan. The study of English reading and of English sentences will
be based largely upon historical, geographical and science readers.
These readers are selected with especial reference to the synchron-
24 ADELPI-II ACADEMY.
ous study of Geography and Natural History, so that, for instance,
the student will study at one time the Geography of Europe and the
flora and fauna of Europe, and will read the stories of English,
French and German History.
Third. Reform in the Study of Mathematics. The study of
Arithmetic is made, so far as possible, the study of a business man's
Arithmetic. Those portions of the Arithmetical text-books which
really belong to higher mathematics are brought in Where they
belong, under Geometry and Algebra. A change of prime im-
portance and benefit is the introduction of Elementary Geome-
try at an earlier grade than heretofore, and the relegation of
Algebra to alater stage. This change is desirable not only on
account of the highly imaginative character of Algebraic processes,
but also because Geometry is essentially fundamental in Mathe-
matics. The Elementary Geometry given in the Seventh Academic
grade is the study of actual constructions, which the student is to
perform with instruments in his hands. The work is not a drill in
memorizing, but an exercise in the production of original demon-
strations. This geometrical study, therefore, upon one side,
becomes a continuation of the drawing-study of the earlier years,
and upon the other side, it is the practical employment of mathe-
matical principles in an exercise in logic. In the later years
Mechanical Drawing, as an important part of the laboratory work
in mathematics, receives the prominence that it deserves.
Fazzrllz. A Comprehensive Education and Consecutive Studies.
The Collegiate Department of the Academy presents a-more com-
prehensive plan of education than heretofore. After the develop-
ment of character the chief aim of education is to secure a liberal
culture. With the course of study here adopted, although some
specialization is permitted, regular students in all courses will profit
by the consecutive study of liberal amounts of literature, history
and politics, and science. The classical student will not devote
himself too exclusively to Greek and Latin, neither will a scientific
training debar the student from literature and history.
It is noteworthy that the student who desires it may follow the
study of a single subject through many consecutive classes. Thus,
German may be studied for nine years, French for eight years,
ADELPH1 ACADEMY. 25
Latin for seven years, Greek for Hve years, while English study
holds the prominent place in every year of the twelve. History
and politics, in one form or another, extend through every year of
the course except one, and the study of the Fine Arts takes its
proper place by the side of History. Science-study is required of
all students, and especial attention is paid to this work among all
the earlier classes. Physics and Chemistry are each studied for
four years, while Natural History and its kindred topics are studied
throughout the whole course.
Particular attention is also invited to the opportunity for two
years' study of the Spanish language. This offer should be of
special service to young men who intend to enter a business career.
Finally, the advanced work of the Mathematical Department
receives more time and assumes a more systematic shape than ever
before. In conjunction with the required science of the Scientific
Course it insures a sound training in pure and applied science,
together with ample laboratory facilities.
Fzfflz. Biology in the Collegiate Course. Particular attention
is invited to the range and sequence of studies in the central course
of the Collegiate Department, the Collegiate Course. Every
thorough course of education should contain a strong sequence of
science study experimentally taught. Biology and its related
subjects are the scientific background of this Collegiate Course.
Biology is the science which deals with life, and is, therefore, most
closely connected with the study of life in history and literature. It
is also the science that is most intimately connected with wornan's
Work in the World, and hence this course of training will prove to
be exceedingly valuable for young women. On the other hand, the
extended study of Biology with laboratory equipment will be the
best possible preparation for the study of medicine, and hence this
course is recommended to the careful attention of young men who
are thinking of entering subsequently upon the study and practice
Moreover, the Collegiate Course is, in general, preeminently
a culture course in literature, language and history, and particular
emphasis is laid upon the study of the history and philosophy of
Art as a pendent to the study of History and Psychology. The
26 ADELPHJ ACADEM Y.
Art School already in the Academy makes this an especially fortu-
Szbctlz. The Continuity of Science Study. Natural Science is
to become as continuous a feature of the curriculum as 'History or
English. The study of the object or, where the object is neces-
sarily lacking, of the picture, is made prominent in every one of the
primary class-rooms. In each year of the lower grades the concrete
facts of elementary natural history and of the physics and chemistry
of daily life are studied and explained. Biology in the Collegiate
Department is based, therefore, upon a considerable equipment of
knowledge concerning Zoology and botany, and physics and
chemistry, when taken up, connect naturally with the preceding
study of life and its environment.
Sevenfh. Arrangement of the Studies in the English Language
and Literature. The mother-tongue is to be studied by the labora-
tory method. That means that the younger pupils are to become
familiar with the best books of juvenile literature. Such books will
be used as reading books, and the study of English grammar will
also be based upon them. The correct use of English, in other
words, is to be insured as much as possible by constant familiarity
with the best models. Formal grammar should be simplified, and
its terminology should be made plain and practical.
Similar methods will characterize the study of English Litera-
ture. The library is the laboratory, and the class carries in hand
not a description of the subject, but the subject itself. Practice in
writing the mother-tongue well is to be secured not so much by the
formal essay as by the writing of themes in the class, the natural
expression of the moment's thought. The list of books from which
reading books and texts in literature are to be chosen can be ex-
amined in the catalog of the Academy.
Ezghfh. Systematic Physical Training. Last, but not least in
importance, is the new requirement of uniform,,systematic physi-
cal training on the part of every student. Provision of time and in-
struction is made for every class. The younger classes, to the
Sixth Academic grade inclusive, are required to engage in the regu-
lar calisthenic exercises as at present. Above that class each stu-
dent must engage at least twice a week in systematic exercises un-
ADELPHI ACADEMY. 27
der the eye of an instructor. The student will be' told what exer-
cises are needful and suitable, where to begin and when to stop.
The different classes will be given such a physical training in field
or gymnasium, or both, as will insure a normal muscular develop-
ment, and under natural conditions the certainty of physical health.
This physical culture is by no means intended to secure merely ex-
pertness in playing games. It is rather the education of the body
which is intended to accompany the education of the mind. It
inures to the beneht of all students, and not to the sole benefit
of a few favored athletes.
The Adelphi Academy is not seeking for reputation in ath-
letics, but it is planning to shield its best students from the danger
of a break-down on account of insufficient or improper exercise.
The acquisition of a playing-field by means of the generosity
of the Trustees and Alumni has rendered it possible to make ade-
quate provision for this weekly physical culture. Through the
larger part of the year classes of both boys and girls can be kept
engaged at the same time, one in the gymnasium, and the other at
the Held. The more advanced classes will naturally obtain from
the latter convenience the highest degree of profit.

Summary of Class Work from the Sixth Grade
I. Department of English: LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE.
The continuous English Work in the Academy from the Ist to- the
7th Grade inclusive, carries the pupil through a large amount of
reading in History, Literature, Geography, and Natural Science.
It is expected that the scholar will study grammar in literature, and
not literature in grammar. The use of a formal English Grammar,
except as a book of reference, is discouraged, and effort is made to
teach English by the laboratory method, by reading, repeating, dis-
cussing, and if possible, feeling the finest masterpieces of the

II. Department of Vlodern Languages. A. THE FRENCH
LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE, The French instruction in the 4th
and 5th grades is chiefly oral. Especial attention is given to the
acquisition of a correct pronunciation, and of avocabulary for com-
mon use. There is some reading of easy French, as in Le Livre
des Enfants and Anecdotes Nouvelles. There is practice in Writing
French and in committing short passages to memory.

pupil to talk and read the language. The plan of work will have especial
reference to the probable use of Spanish in trade.

C. THE GERMAN LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE.
Prior to the 6th Grade, the Adelphi student has already had instruction
in German through four years, and should be the master ofa considerable
vocabulary. Next year the transition from the old to the new course of study
will compel the study of German in the 6th Grade instead of French, although
the latter study is called for by the schedule. The students of that grade will
next year be entering upon only their second year's study of German. The
modern language work of the 6th Grade next year, therefore, will be practice
in German conversation, and exercisein reading and writing easy German.

VH. Department of Physics.-The instruction in Physics
extends through the four Collegiate years in the Scientific Course,
and in the other courses through the junior Year. Particular at-
tention is given to the proofs of principles and laws, numerous ex-
perimental illustrations and applications are made, and the solution
of many practical problems is required. The doctrines of the cor-
relation of forces and the conservation of energy are made the cen-
ter of the system. The course aims to explain the phenomena of
nature, and convey practical information concerning the number-
less applications of this science to daily life as well as to discipline,
and to train the mind in the exact methods of modern science.
In the laboratory the work is mostly quantitative and demon-
strative rather than illustrative. Its purpose is to teach careful
manipulation and the methods by which physical determinations

The Academy has a useful collection of lantern slides in Astronomy,
and it is with these only that an idea of the telescopic features ofthe heav-
enly bodies can be given to the class. A telescope with an object glass, at
least eight inches in diameter, is much needed. A place for such an instru-
ment was prepared in the Pratt Collegiate building, but it still waits for the
generous donor to fill it.
A Post-Graduate Course of one year will be given when required.
VIII. Department of Mathematics.-In the 6th Grade
the study of Arithmetic is finished, save for the half-year of Arith-
metical Review, two years later.
I. Seventh Grade. Elementary Geometry. G. A. I-Iill's Elementary
Geometry for Beginners. Five times weekly. This subject is introductory
to the study of demonstrative geometry. Much attention is given to the ac-
curate construction of geometrical figures, to the calculation of areas and vol-
umes, and to discussions of the relation ofthe parts of the figures to each
other. The student is thoroughly drilled in the use of drawing instruments,
and is constantly required to solve problems graphically, and to verify his
work arithmetically. .

the Academy from the beginning to the 6th Grade, inclusive. The course in-
cludes instruction not only in free-hand drawing from the model, but also in
the elements of Mechanical Drawing in connection with the mathematical
studies. After the 6th Grade, drawing becomes an optional study, and may
be chosen by those who evince a special aptitude for it. In the Collegiate
Department Mechanical Drawing becomes a prominent part of the required
work in the Scientific Course.

company concurrent study of Modern History. Twice weekly.
B. VOCAL Music.
The study of music is required of all pupils in the Academy. They
acquire the ability to read music and receive instruction in voice culture also.
The Mason series of music readers is at present used, but it will be replaced
next year by a book prepared by the Principal and Mr. Frederic Reddall,
the Instructor in Singing. An Adelphi Academy Glee Club, numbering
twenty-five voices, has been formed.
Below the Collegiate Department, every student receives special
instruction and discipline in reading and declamation. In the Collegiate
Department the drill is continued, and more formal instruction in the principles
and theory of elocution is imparted.
XI. Department of Physical Culture.
Each student receives instruction in Gymnastics or Calisthenics, unless
excused on account of physical disability. Below the Eighth Grade, the
students of each class perform calisthenic exercises at regular intervals in
the calisthenic room under the supervision of the Director.
The calisthenic exercises are arranged with regard to system and pro-
gression, so that the weakest individual can exercise without danger of over-
work. The exercises are selected for their physiological and physical effects,
not for mere show and appearance.
From the Eighth Grade upward there are formed voluntary classes for
gymnastic training. At present the boys' classes meet three times a week
and the girls' classes twice a week. They are well attended.
Next year, under the new course of study, all students from the Seventh
Grade upward will receive systematic instruction in physical training, and
voluntary classes will be provided in addition.
Each student before exercising in the gymnasium receives a thorough
physical examination, anthropometrical measurements are taken, and the
condition of heart and lungs is recorded. With this examination as a basis,
a written prescription of exercise is given and followed, which is designed
to correct physical defects, to produce symmetrical development and to raise
the standard of health. Students who have certain physical defects are
allowed extra time in the gymnasium that the defects may be corrected.
Class exercise in gymnastics is systematically and progressively
arranged from a knowledge of what is best in each and every system. Be-
ginning with the simplest and easiest movements the exercise increases as
the strength increases. The classes are graded according to the strength,
skill and ability of the individual, and each class is limited to eight members.
ADELPHI ACADEMY, 43
By thus arranging and grading the classes or squads the exact amount of
exercise is controlled, and the allowance is in proportion to the strength of
Each class is in charge of a leader, who is carefully selected and specially
trained for the position by the physical director. Exercises are arranged in
progressive series in the following order : Chest and Pulley-weights, Hori-
zontal Bar, Waist Bar, Vaulting Bar, Running High jump, Flying Rings,
Trapeze, Swinging Poles, Climbing Poles, Horizontal Ladders and Tumbling.

The Kindergarten Training Class.
The Adelphi training class combines the advantages of practice
in the excellent kindergarten of the Academy with the same instruc-
tion in art, science, music, physical culture, psychology and history
that is offered to the advanced classes of the Collegiate Depart-
ment. The course extends through two years. Candidates for
admission must be at least eighteen years of age, must give evidence
of a good preliminary educational training and must satisfy the
Director that they are competent to study kindergartening with
prospect of success. Students who complete the full course and
give satisfactory proof of proficiency and ability will receive a
diploma certifying to their attainments.

" Do not think by learning the nature or structure of a thing, that you
can learn to draw it. Anatomy is necessary in the education of surgeons Q
botany in that of apothecariesg and geology in that of minersg but none of
the three will enable you to draw a man, a flower, or a mountain. You can
learn to do that only by looking at them g not by cutting them to pieces."
" AndQdon't think you can paint a peach, because you know that there's
a stone inside 3 nor a face, because you know a skull is."
The whole ofthe upper story of the new Collegiate Building
is devoted to this department. There is a spacious studio which is
furnished with full and half-sized statues, large and small torsos,
busts, masks, and reliefs. There is also a large room for classes in
drawing and in painting from life. Besides, there are three rooms :
for modeling, the making of casts, and for the use of small classes.
The professor in charge meets students once a month for criticism
in composition and design. A class in sketching meets once a week
in the evening. The Life Class meets three evenings a week to
draw from the ligure.
The students of this department are frequent exhibitors at the
annual exhibitions ofthe National Academy of Design, the Water
Color Society of New York, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine
Arts, and the Boston Art Club.
The regular course of study extends through four years, for
admission, applicants will be examined in outline drawing from solids
and geometrical Hgures, in the elements of perspective, in drawing
fragment shadows and half-tones from the bust and torso, with and
without background. These preparatory subjects are taught in
connection with the department, and they usually occupy two years.
A course of reading in History and Art is included in the regular
work. Instruction is given in the preparation of the materials for
painting in oils and in water colors, and in the special features of
drawing in charcoal and in crayon, in pencil, and in pen and ink.
Occasional examinations are set upon the work of the studio and
upon the required reading. For the last two years there is practice

in landscape painting, and for the last year, in drawing and painting
portraits from life. Botany and Anatomy are taught with special
reference to their connection with art.
Students who complete the full course and pass satisfactory
examinations will receive a diploma graduating them from the
department and certifying the extent and quality of their attain-
ment.. The preparatory studies may be omitted if the progress
required for more advanced work has been attained, and in all
cases a lit classification will be made. Special students will be
received as heretofore.

Equipment of The Adelphi Academy.
I. The Buildings.-The group of three buildings now occu-
pied by the Adelphi Academy iills the entire end of the block
between Lafayette Avenue and Clifton Place, zoox ISO feet. The
central building is an assembly hall, 5ox 72 feet, with sittings for
ADELPI-II ACADEMY. ' 47
about a thousand persons. In the basement extending across
the whole block is the gymnasium, occupying three large rooms
and covering a space zoo X 50 feet.
The ventilation of all the buildings is complete and perfect. A
large fan is placed in the upper part of each building, discharging
air from a reservoir which receives ventilating fiues from all the
rooms. These fans are driven by electric motors from a dynamo
connected with a forty horse-power engine. By this means the air
in both buildings can be completely renewed at least once every
half-hour in the most unfavorable weather.
The principal room in the gymnasium opens directly into the
outer air by means of large skylights in the roof, so that these
rooms are especially well lighted and ventilated.
The buildings are conveniently reached by the Brooklyn Union
Elevated R. R. QDeKalb or Greene Avenue Stationsj, or by the
Greene, DeKalb, Franklin, Vanderbilt and Fulton electric cars.
II. The Library and Reading Room.-The Library of the
Academy now contains more than tive thousand five hundred
volumes, and it is rapidly increasing in size. Through the generosity
of the Alumni Association an unusually large sum of money has
been applied this year to the purchase of books. The library is
well supplied with the most useful works of reference, encyclo-
paedias, dictionaries and atlases. The reading tables are well
stocked with the best papers and magazines for the use of the
members of the Academy. -The librarian is in constant attendance
and there is a complete card catalog. Both library and reading
room are at the service of the students in all the departments of
Among the principal periodicals on tile in the reading room are
the following :
The American Agriculturist, Anthonyis Photographic Bulletin, The
Atlantic Monthly, The Book Buyer, The Century Magazine, Child Garden,
The Congressional Record, The Contemporary Review, The Cosmopolitan,
Education, The Educational Review, The Fortnightly Review, The Forum,
The Geographical journal, I-larper's Magazine, I-Iarper's Weekly, Harvard

Magazine, The Yale Review, The Youth's Companion.
Ill. The Gymnasium and Playing:Field.-The gymnasium
is in charge of a Director who is a physician, and of a lady assistant
who is especially charged with the conduct of the girls' classes.
The calisthenium is a spacious room provided with a piano and
with the usual equipment of wands, clubs and bells. The remain-
ing space besides dressing-rooms, bath-room and ofhces, contains two
large rooms well supplied with all modern apparatus. In these
rooms are found a hand-ball court and basket-ball Held 5 chest
weights, back and loin attachments, intercostal machines, traveling
parallels and a quarter circle, a set of Swedish apparatus and of
climbing apparatus 3 twelve-pound shots and hammers with vaulting
apparatus, a full equipment for anthropometric work and all the
best appliances for gymnastic exercises, including rings, bars, horses,
parallels, ladders, mattresses and trapeze.
The playing-ield,which is now in the possession of the Academy,
is situated near Classon Avenue, between Park Place and Prospect
Place. It is near the Franklin Avenue, Bergen Street and Atlantic
Avenue lines of cars, and is about twelve minutes' walk from
the Academy. Its dimensions are such as to afford sufficient room
for all the usual games. Inasmuch as the held has but recently
come under the control of the Academy it is still in need of equip-
ment, and the hope is that the friends of the Academy will be glad
to assist in this most indispensable Work.
IV. Equipment of the Kindergarten.-The rooms for
this department are all well lighted, conveniently situated upon the
Hrst lloor of the Academic Building, and very near to the Lafayette
Avenue and St. James Place entrances. The rooms are well supplied
with cabinets in which the materials of work are stored and the
handiwork of the pupils displayed. Every necessary aid is supplied
for the games and music. Provision is made for the observation
of growing plants and of living animals.
V. Equipment of the Academic Department.-During the
twenty-live years of the existence ofthe Academy, a very considerable
supply of materials to illustrate the teaching of History, Geography
ADELPHI ACADEM Y. 49
Natural Science and Number has been accumulated. By the gen-
erosity of the Board of Trustees this supply has been materially in-
creased during the current year. The best physical and political
maps and a great number of pictures and charts for use in the study
of Natural History, Geography and political and social History
have been imported from Germany and France. On Founders'
Day, February 23d, 1894, this new collection was displayed, nlling six
rooms of the Academy. It is intended to place them on exhibi-
tion again during Commencement week in june. The principal
characteristics of this new equipment may be inferred from the

Clark cell, large Ruhmkorff coil, Toepler machine, besides other forms of
galvanometers and bridges, and much general apparatus. The apparatus
provides for practicing the various modes of measuring current, potential and
There is an electric lighting and power plant, consisting of a
40 horse-power engine, a 250-light U. S. direct current dynamo, and
three U. S. motors. During the hours of session these furnish cur-
rent in the lecture-room and laboratories, and drive the Ventilating
fans. At other times connection is had with the Edison 3-wire
system, giving a constant potential of 230 volts.
The department is provided with a good photographic outlit, a
6552185 camera with a Dallmeyer lens, a Ioxrz copying camera,
and a dark room Well ventilated and lighted by the electric light,
equipped with every necessary appliance.
The lecture-room, with a seating capacity of one hundred, is
on the south side of the building, and has all the approved arrange-
ments for its special use. It is darkened by shutters sliding from
the walls. The sunlight, the calcium or the electric light may be
used for projection or experiment.
The lantern is provided with vertical attachment, polarizing
elbow and microscope, and there is a large set of objects for pro-
jection. Colt's electric arc lamp has recently been added to it.
Wires connect it with the lecture table so that electrical experiments
performed there may be projected on the screen. Several thousand

lantern slides are used here each year in illustrating geography and
history to the Academic classes studying those subjects.
The cabinet of apparatus both for lecture and laboratory use is
enlarged each year. Among recent additions are a D'Arsonval
galvonometer, a spectrometer, an electric lamp for the lantern,
calorimeters, a sonometer, vernier gauges, balances, a 'tangent gal-
vanometer, an astatic needle galvanometer, a Wheatstone's wire
bridge, a deflection magnetometer, etc., and apparatus for measur-
ing focal length and magnifying power of lenses and mirrors.
VIII. The Biological Laboratory and Collections for use
in teaching Natural History. The Biological Laboratory is to be
equipped during the coming season. It will occupy rooms adjacent
to the Chemical Laboratory, and will be provided with whatever is
necessary for the work of the next year. The Academy is already
provided with the facilities for botanical study, including dissecting
and compound microscopes, a herbarium, mounting apparatus and

be accommodated. There is a large collection of geometric models
and machine types. There are many large photographs of loco-
motive and stationary engines, besides numerous blue prints and
detail drawings of a large array of machinery.
X. The Studio. See Art Department, cuzle. p. 45.
I. Attendance, Excuses and Discipline.-In order to form
systematic business-like habits and to make the most of the time
devoted to education, pupils are required to be regular and punctual
in attendance and in all school duties. A teacher cannot be
responsible for the progress or thoroughness of those who allow
triiiing causes to interfere with their attendance. It is also particu-
larly desirable that the pupil should not lose time during the nrst
few weeks of the school year and at its end. A fortnight more of
vacation in Autumn cannot often be worth the risk of falling
behind in studies.
Absence, tardiness or imperfect lessons can be excused only
upon a written statement from the parent or guardian, showing the
existence of illness or of some other imperative necessity. Such
excuses should be presented at once by the pupil on entering the
schoolroomg otherwise notice of the absence or tardiness will be
sent to the parent or guardian.
There is no system of demerit marks used as penalties.
Students who persist in wrong conduct, or who fail in diligence, will
be carefully and kindly warned of the consequences of wrong-doing
or of indolence. Parents will also be notified of such deficiences by
the periodical reports or by special information. Students who are
disobedient or wilfully inattentive after warnings will be removed
from the Academy. It is hoped that parents will become acquainted
with the teachers who have charge of their children. At the close
of each daily session there is opportunity for conference between
ADELPHI ACADEMY. 57
parents and teachers, but such interviews should not occur during
the school session. Time is allowed in every class for some study in
school hours. Teachers will remain after the close of a day's
session for the purpose of aiding those who need help. Members
of the Collegiate and Academic Departments are expected to study
at home daily from one to three hours, according to age and capacity.
Except in extraordinary cases, every student is expected to pursue
a regular course of study.
II. Reports, Vlarks and Promotions.-Below the junior
Middle Year of the Academy carefully prepared reports are made
mQnthly to the parents, showing the scholarship, punctuality and
conduct of each pupil. Parents are requested to examine these
reports regularly, sign them promptly, and return them to the
Academy. A summary of these reports is kept as a permanent
record. From the beginning of the junior Middle Year onward,
reports are not sent home unless the attention of the parent is par-
The monthly reports give evidence of scholarship as shown
not by formal examinations, but by oral or written tests selected at
frequent intervals by the teacher without the foreknowledge of the
pupil. Formal examinations are held only whenasubject is finished
or at the end of a year. The teacher uses no marking-book in
recitation and no numerical marks are placed upon the reports. lt
is especially desired that students shall not study merely to get
marks or to make a favorable comparison of percentages. Letters
instead of figures are therefore used on the reports, in the belief
that they allow more room for a teacher's judgment, afford an
equally satisfactory record, and operate less as an unhealthy stimulus.
The system of letter-records now in use is as follows :
H fpassed with lzozzarj signilies that the record of the student
is especially good.
C fpassefi wifh fredilj signifies that the record of the student
is very satisfactory.
P fparsezij signines that the record of the student is clear.
This rank, as a rule, admits .the student to any studies dependent
on the subject in question.
58 ADELPHI ACADEMY.
F Cfailfd fojmsrj signifies that the progress of the student is
not at all satisfactory. If incurred at a hnal examination, this
record implies that the student is conditioned, and must at the ap-
pointed time make his record clear before he can continue in the
subject, or in a dependent study.
FF ffazkri complffebfj signihes that the student must drop or
repeat the subject. Absence from an examination, if unexplained,
or failure to make up a condition at the time appointed, is equiva-
lent to a record of FF.
Averages of the monthly records are combined with the results
of the final examinations in estimating the comparative standing of
the student. Final examinations are set as a benencial exercise for
the student 1'ather than as a means of determining rank, In no
case is the rank of a student nxed solely by a mechanical process of
Students who fail to do satisfactory work may, at the discretion
of the Faculty, be required to discontinue a study at any time, to
make up deficiencies after the close of the school year if possible,
and to present themselves for "Condition Examinations " in Sep-
tember. The promotion of each student from one year to another
is determined by the Faculty of the department or grade to which
the student belongs.
Honors, Scholarships and Prizes.-Students in the Collegiate
Department and in the Academic Department, pursuing a regular
course of study, who have been present through an entire year,
with a record of highly creditable Work, and Whose conduct has
been satisfactory, will receive honorary certificates at the close of
The N Charles Pratt Scholarship," the ff Hayden W. Wheeler
Scholarship," the HE. F. de Selding Scholarship," and the H W. S.
Woodward Scholarship," are given annually to such fit persons as
may be nominated by Charles M, Pratt, Hayden W. Wheeler, E. F.
de Selding and Mrs. W. S. Woodward respectively.
The "Dollner Scholarship " and five other Scholarships are
given annually to such nt persons as may be approved by the
ADELPHI ACADEMY. 59
Candidates for said scholarships must have attained the age of
fourteen years, or, if under fourteen years of age, must prove, upon
examination by the Superintendent of the Academic Department,
well qualified to enter the Eighth Academic Grade of the Adelphi
Scholarships will be renewed to those only who attain a high
standard in their work.
By gift from Charles Pratt, the income of 31,000 is applied
annually to prizes for improvement in penmanship. These prizes
are open to students on full course in all departments.
Mr. Pratt established another fund to encourage good reading
and elocution. The income is applied to awards for those who
have made the most improvement, and also to the providing of new
matter for 'supplementary reading.
