Extract from the records of the Board of Trustees for February
18, 1895 :
"To, thc already long list of departed worthies who have been con-
nected with the Board of Trustees of the Adelphi Academy, must now
be added the name of Mr. Edwin Beers, one ofthe original members of
the Board and its Treasurer for two years. At tl1e'Board meetings he was
habitually a regular and punctual attendant, bringing there the- same
business capacity, the same circunispection, the same fairness which
characterized him as a successful merchant. We shall nmiss his quiet Ways
as much as We shall miss his Wise counsels. As individuals we all have
felt the infiuence of his unobtrusive goodness and of his devotion to duty.
To his family we extend our heartiest sympathy in their severe affliction,
and beg to assure them that the memory of his example will always go
with us as an incentive to a higher measure of faithfulness to the trust
committed to us, in which he has shared for more than a quarter of a

THE ADELPHI ACADEMY.
l. Origin and Development.-The Adelphi Academy sprang
from the school which was started by Mr. John Lockwood, in Septem-
ber, 1863, at 336 Adelphi Street. In 1867 the present site of the Acad-
emy was purchased, and the corner stone of the first building on
Lafayette Avenue was laid by the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, July
23, 1867. This building was formally opened for use on the fourth
day of the following February. The numbers in attendance had in-
creased more than forty-fold in live years. In December, 1869, the
school was incorporated as H The Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn."
The gentlemen who procured the charter and constituted the first
board of trustees were William S. Woodward, Buckley T. Benton,
Alfred S. Barnes, Alfred C. Barnes, William H. Wallace, Charles H.
Noyes, Charles E. Evans, Henry W. Slocum, Samuel M. Mills,
Thomas Vernon, Dr. Joseph C. Hutchison, Charles Hill, Enos
N. Taft, Rev. Dr. William Ives Budington, john Davol, Charles
Pratt, Samuel Crowell, Peter M. Dingee, Dr. Joseph B. Elliot, Samuel
Wright, Truman I. Ellinwood. Q
Many friends ofthe Academy came to its assistance, and in
1873 the Trustees built the western wing of the Academic Building.
In 1880 the eastern wing was added by the generosity of Messrs'
Charles Pratt and Hayden W. Wheeler, members of the Board of
Six years 'later the continued interest and liberality of Mr.
Charles Pratt enabled the Trustees to erect the new structure on
Clifton Place and St. james Place. It was ready for use in Septem-
ber, 1888, and was named in honor of its principal donor, the Pratt
Collegiate Building. While the Academy has owed, and does owe,
so large an obligation to individuals, it is emphatically the creation
and the property of the conxmunityin which it is. The list of its
benefactors is long and widely representative. It has become a potent
moral and educational in fluence in the lives of thousands of students
16 A1DI5I.P'HI AC7AlDEA13'.
from multitudes of Brooklyn homes. It has become a successful ex-
ponent of that moral safeguard and character-forming force, co-edu-
cation. Like all schools worthy of the name, the Adelphi com-
mands, for the development ofits pupils, opportunities which far out-
strip its financial powers. As with all live institutions, the more
good it does, the more it sees that it desires to do. Its new buildings,
itsgenerous equipment, and the disastrous fire of a few years ago,
have imposed upon the Academy the burden of a debt which its
friends should transform into the encouragement of an endowment.

ll. Departments of the Academy.-The Adelphi Academy pro-
vides the means for a thorough and systematic education from the
very beginning of school life to the time when the student is either
equipped for the active work of tl1e larger world outside of school
walls, or is ready, to enter upon the special training of university
studies. The Academy intends, therefore, to present a complete
school system in one group of buildings.
There are live divisions of the Academy: The Kindergarten, the
Academic Department, the Collegiate Department, the Art Depart-
ment and the Department of Physical Culture
The Kindergarten Course may extend through three years. It
forms an admirable preparation for the work of the primary grades.
Atraining- class for teachers, strictlylimited in numbers, is maintained
in connection with the Kindergarten? Into the Kindergarten itself
children who are at least four years old may be admitted. They have

careful attention from the time ofreaching 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 to the Kindergarten
rooms. Other visitors are requested to apply for admission in the
Bursar's otlice. The vacations are the same as in other departments
of the Academy.
' The Academic Department comprises eight classes, or grades,
each one year in duration, and also one intermediate class between
the Kindergarten and the first primary grade. Pupils may be admit-
ted to this department who have attained the age of six years or over.
The studies of the eighth, or last, year involve what is usually called
f- the High-School grade " of work in all branches. Rooms and
hours of the school session in this department are so arranged that
pupils of the four primary grades do not come in contact with other
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 Collegiate Course and the Scientiic Course.
Elective studies may be chosen in any of these courses, subject to the
approval of the Faculty.
The Classical Course affords a thorough preparation for any
American university, and graduates from this course who have had
the benefit of the whole Adelphi curriculum will be able to take ad-
The Collegiate Course offers a comprehensive and thorough
training in Languages, Literature, History and Politics, Philosophy
and the Fine Arts, and Natural Science.
The Scientiic Course prepares for a business career or for admis-
sion to any scientific or technical college. Graduates from this
course will have an assured practical knowledge of Physics, Chem-
istry, Mathematics and its applications in Mechanics and Surveying,
while the studies of History and Languages, including the mother-
tongue, receive due attention.
20 KLDELIJIJI ACADEAIX'.
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 uni-
versity, the diploma of the Academy may be granted to him or her
in due course upon evidence that an equivalent of the remaining
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 any special lines
of art work, under most advantageous conditions of light and space.
The Department of Physical Culture offers facilities for outdoor
and indoor exercise of all kinds and grades. From the beginning
of the Adelphi Academy this Department has performed an import-
ant and prominent work in it, The curriculum of this Department
is coterminous in years with that of the Academy, and special stu-
dents are enabled to pursue special lines of exercise under competent
III. Admission of Students.-Applications for admission should
be made on june I2, 1895, or on September 18, 19 and zo, 1895, at the
Academy. Admission at any time is granted to those who can show
evidence of ability to take up t e vvork of any class. Newly admitted
students are not finally graded by the results of examinations, but by
the evidence of their daily Work in class during the weeks immediately
following their admission. Every student in the Academy is assigned
to a teacher, who exercises careful and constant supervision. Stu-
dents from other schools who have not had all the studies offered in
the earlier years of the Adelphi, may be admitted under special con-
-ditions, enabling them to make up the omitted work. Pupils from
any other schools applying for admission to the Adelphi Academy
should, if possible, present records of rank and latest promotion in
the schools which they have been attending.
Persons who wish to enter the Academy for the purpose of study-
ing special subjects must give satisfactory evidence of ability to
pursue such studies, and must conform to all rules of order prescribed
for those in the regular courses. The privilege of pursuing special
subjects will be withdrawn from all who fail to comply with such
ADELPIiI A CADENI XT. 21
IV. System of Supervision.-Every student in the Academy is
directly responsible to some member of the teaching force, who exer-
cises control, subject to the sanction of the Faculty, over the daily
work of the students assigned to him or her. In the Collegiate De-
partment such officers are called H class advisers." The system of
Faculty organization enables the Principal to meet every teacher in
the Academy every week. In this manner it is intended to secure
prompt and accurate knowledge of the scholarship and deportment of
every scholar. Parents are requested to cooperate in this work of
supervision by communicating freely with the class officers or Princi-
pal, and especially concerning the nature and extent of the pupil's
study at home.
V. Attendance 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 attend-
ance and in all school duties. A teacher cannot be responsible for
the backwardness of those students who allow trifling causes to inter-
fere with their attendance. It is also particularly desirable that the
pupil should not lose time during the first few weeks of the school
year and at its end. A fortnight more of vacation in Autumn or
Spring cannot often be worth the risk of falling behind in studies.
Pupils who have been absent or tardy are expected to state the
reason therefor promptly to the teacher in charge of the room. If no
reason for absence or tardiness is known to the teacher, or the reason
given seems insufficient, notice of such absence or tardiness is imme-
diately sent home. lfVritten excuses signed by the parent are not
necessary unless specially requested. It is only desired that parents
should know the testimony of the roll books and should cooperate with
the teachers in correcting any possible carelessness or delinquency.
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 deficiencies by
the periodical reports or by special inforniation. 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
22 ADELPHI DEDJY.
who have charge of their children. At the close of each daily ses-
sion there is opportunity for conference between 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
thosevwho deserve and need help. Members of the Collegiate Depart-
ment and of the upper grades of the Academic Department are ex-
pected to study at home daily from one to three hours, according to
age and capacity. Every student who is able to pursue a regular
course of study is expected to do so.
VI- ReC0l'dS of Rank.-In the Academic Department of the
Academy carefully prepared reports are made monthly 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. In the Collegiate Department
similar reports are prepared and sent home at any time if the Faculty
orders it, or if the parent requests it.
The teacher uses no marking-book in recitation and no numeri-
cal marks are placed upon the reports. It is especially desired that
students shall not study merely to get marks or to make a favor-
able 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 reports of class-work which are presented to the Faculty
weekly throughout thepyear are made the basis of the final record of
scholarship in any subject. Formal examinations at the end of work
upon any subject are given only to students who have been absent
from the class for some portion of the time and to those who have
been delinquent. In thus abolishing formal examinations for the
mass of students, and in substituting therefor the evidence of daily
work in the class-room, the Faculty of the Academy feels that it is
promoting the right kind of scholarship, discouraging that pernicious
form of study known as 'fcrammingf' and establishing a wise
ADELPIJI A CADEDJY. 23
distinction between those who study faithfully from day to day and
those who do not.
At the same time it should be observed that the great frequency
of written tests in the ordinary class routine will in the end afford
the student all the necessary experience in the work of expressing
knowledge upon paper. Finally, it may be emphasized that promo-
tions from class to class in the Adelphi Academy are not the reward
of a lucky examination, but may be certainly secured only by
diligent and successful labor from one end to the other of the school
A Students who fail to do satisfactory work may, at the direction 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 Exaininationsn in june or 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
VII. Honors, Scholarships and Prizes.-Students in the Colle-
giate 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 year,
The "Charles Pratt Scholarship," the 'fl-Iayden WV. Wheeler
Scholarship," the HE. F. de Selding Scholarship," the HMV. S.
Woodward Scholarship," and the '+I-Iarold Dollner Scholarship,"
are given annually to such fit persons as may be nominated by the
President of tl1e Board, Hayden W. Wheeler, E. F. de Seldiug, Mrs.
W. S. Woodward, and the Treasurer of the Board respectively.
Candidates for said scholarships must have attained the age of
fourteen years, or, if under fourteen years of age, niust prove, upon
examination by the Principal, well qualihed to enter the Eighth
Academic Grade of the Adelphi Academy,
Scholarships will be renewed to those only who attain a high
standard in their work.
Scholars whose record has been and is entirely satisfactory, but
24. ADELPHI ACADED1 Y.
who find themselves prevented by lack of means from continuing
their education, are invited to consult with the Principal concerning
the possibility of making such arrangements as will enable them to
go on with their studies. So far as the resources of the Academy
may permit, it is the intention to extend a helping hand to every
worthy student who may need assistance.
By gift from Charles Pratt, the income of 51,000 is applied
annually to prizes for improvement in penmanship. These prizes
are open to students on full course in all departments.
The same benefactor also established a fund to encourage good
reading and elocution. The income is applied to awards for those
who have made the most improvement, and also to tl1e providing
of new matter for supplementary reading.
Vlll. Certificates for Admission to College.-Colleges and uni-
versities which admit students upon certificate will accept the cer-
tificates of the Adelphi Academy. Among the institutions with
which the Academy is thus related are the following: Amherst
College, Cornell University, Smith College, Vassar College, Wel-
lesley College, VVesleyan University, Williams College and the
W0111an's College of Baltimore.

26 AJDELPIJI ACADEMY.
THE COURSE OF STUDY.
The catalog of 1893-94 announced a new course of study for the
Adelphi Academy, and invited attention to certain salient and inter-
-esting features of the proposed curriculum. The new schedule has
now endured the test of a year of trial, and it is possible to speak with
.-some confidence of the results that have been obtained.
Those who desire for their children the best advantages ofa ra'
tional and liberal training are asked to observe these facts concerning
the Adelphi :
I. The study of the modern languages is begun in the primary
grades, and every Adelphi pupil may obtain afair knowledge of
French and German before entering the Collegiate Department,
2. The study of Latin is begun in the Sixth Academic Grade and
'the study of Greek, in the Eighth.
3. The important studies are continuous. Mathematics, English,
and the sciences show an unbroken progression. History is almost
equally honored. Moreover, German may be studied for eleven years,
French for nine years, Latin for seven years, Greek for five years,
Physics for live years, Chemistry for four and a half years, Biology
.and related subjects also for four and a half years, Spanish for two
4. The correlation of studies is systematically arranged upon the
basis of History and Geography, so that the student's attention is con-
centrated upon one subject, while he is receiving instruction in His'
'C0ry, Geography, Science, and Language.
5. Geometry is studied from the beginning by laboratory meth-
ods. It is made practical because it is introduced as a study of
6. To the former admirable laboratory facilities of the Academy,
a new biological laboratory is now added, and it is in complete work-
ing order. Biology is the science which deals with life, and is, there-
fore, most closely connected with the study of life in history and liter-
ature. It is also the science that is most intimately concerned with
woman's work in the world. The extended study of Biology with
laboratory equipment is the best possible preparation for the study of
A1DELPHI A CADEDI Y. 27
medicine, and hence this course is recommended to the careful atten-
tion of any one who thinks of entering subsequently into the ranks
of the medical profession. b
7. The plan of the new curriculum has enabled the Academy to
show to its classical students an impartialjustice. None of them may
as heretofore, graduate earlier than their classmates in the other
courses, and at the same time all of them who are successful and regu-
lar students in any of the classes will become Adelphi graduates in
'due course. In this way the Adelphi will retain in its companionship
and upon its roll of graduates many students who were formerly lost
to the Alumni Association because they left the Academy at the close
of some other year than the senior middle. The classical department
has also profited much by the changes which placed the beginning
of both Latin and Greek earlier in the course than formerly. There
is now ample time for that careful, painstaking introduction to the
elements of these languages which is the only sure passport to the
later successful study of the language and literature.
8. When the Pratt Collegiate Building was erected, a room
therein was destined for use as a manual training work room. Not
until this year, however, has the right moment presented itself for the
'realization of that intention. Heretofore a wide gap has been left
between the primary manual training in paper and clay, and the man-
ual training of the scientific laboratories ofthe Collegiate Department.
That gap has been filled by the establishment of a class in woodwork-
ing and design, which has been thrown open to all members of the
Academic Department above the third grade. Manual training of
this sort at the Adelphi is not intended to provide anything more
than a laboratory course for the Academic Department. It opens the
door for the new study of geometry in that department 5 it affords a
basis for the work in drawing g above all, it is only the natural and
rightful continuation of that eye-and-handdiscipline which distin-
guishes kindergarten and primary work.
Scienceestudy, form-study and number-study have now a visible
foundation in laboratory work and laboratory methods of study from
-one end of the Adelphi curriculum to the other.
9. Attention is invited to the list of reading-books adopted for
use in the academic grades. See pp. 61-65.

1. The Songs and Gaines of the Kindergarten introduce the study of Natural Science, stimulating the imagination, developing
a sympathy with nature, and suggesting the highest ideals in thought and action.
The Gifts form the basis of Mathematical Science, illustrating the solid. surface, line and point. The pupil acquires from the
Gifts a knowledge of geometric forms and of different combinations of number.
The Occupations apply the principles that underlie the Gifts and cultivate a taste for the beautiful in form and color, training
the eye and hand to work in unison with the mind, learning comes by doing. Color music is used, including also exercises
The Kindergarten training seeks to develop inventiveness, thoroughness, sympathy and generosity, power of concentration and
power of language and reason. The right beginning is half the battle.

SUMMARY OF STUDIES, BY DEPARTFIENTS.
I, Department of English.: LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE.
'The continuous English work in the Academy, from the First to the
.Seventh 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 English, so far as possible, by
the laboratory method, by reading, repeating, discussing. and if
possible, f66lZ'7Zg' many of the masterpieces of the mother tongue.
Above the Seventh Grade the English studies ot the Classical students
are, necessarily, partly governed by the requirements for admission to
college. In general, however, the plan for all Courses is substantially
as follows :
I. Eighth Grade. Selected Worlrs of XIX. Century authors,
American and British, Irving, Hawthorne, Longfellow, Whittier, Lowell,
Wa1'ner, Parkman, George Eliot, Scott, Kingsley, Tennyson. Composi-
tions. Three hours a week.
2. Junior Year. The Literature of the XIX. Century, with the
special study of Style. Compositions. In the Classical and Scientific
Courses, two hours a week, in the Collegiate Course, four hours a week.
3. Junior Middle Year. Origins and History of the English
language and study of the earlier literature, from Chaucer through the
XVI. Century. Compositions. Collegiate and Scientific Courses, three
hours a week, Classical Course, two hours a week.
4. Senior Middle Year. Literature of the XVII. and XVIII.
Centuries, from Shakspere through the Puritan period and the age of
Queen Anne. Special study of the Drama. Compositions. All Courses,
three hours a week.
5. Senior Year. Literature of the XVIII. and XIX. Centuries,
from the age of revolution to the present time. Special study ofthe
Essay and the Novel. Compositions. All Courses, three hours a week.
H, Department of Modern Languages. A, THE FRENCH LAN-
GUAGE AND LITERATURE. The French instruction in the Fourth and
Fifth grades is chiefly oral. Especial attention is given to the acquisition
AIJELPHI ACADENIY. 33
of a correct pronunciation, and of a vocabulary for common use. There
is some reading of easy French, as in Premieres Lectures des Enfants
and Anecdotes Nouvelles. There is practice in writing French and
in committing short passages to memory. The study of French in the
Academy is not a mere matter of memorizing. From the beginning,
it is treated as a valuable educational instrument, and it is used to
awaken and quicken the pupil's reasoning powers, and to enforce the
important lessons of other studies.
I. Sixth Grade, Reading and Conversing. Systematic drill, oral
and written, in the elements of the language. Drill Book A. Three times
2. Seventh Grade. Drill Book A finished. Reading and Con-
versingg simple compositions in French. Three times a week.
3. Eighth Grade. Drill Book B5 rapid reading of short stories
Ueune Siberienne, ,Chien du Capitaine, etc.jg translation from English into
Frenchg dictation exercises. Three hours a week.
4. junior Year. Reading of French histories, with discussions and
exercise in translation. Optional. Three hours a week. '
5. junior Middle Year. French Literature, XIX. Century CManuel
de Litterature Frangaisejg letter-writing, discussions. Optional. Three
hours a week.
6. Senior Middle Year. French Literature, XVIII. Century,
collateral readingg French compositions. Optional. Three hours a week.
7. Senior Year. French Literature, XVII. Century, as before.
Optional. Three hours a week.
B. THE SPANISH LAxoUAoE.
It is intended to provide sdfficient instruction in Spanish to enable the
pupil to tall-2 and read the language. The plan of work will have especial
reference to the probable use of Spanish in trade, and, as soon as possible,
the class is set to reading current newspapers published in Spanish. This
subject is optional for any Collegiate student, and the Course in Spanish
extends through at least two years.
C. THE GERMAN LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE.
Prior to the Sixth Grade, the Adelphi student may have instruction in
German through four years, and he should become the master of a consid
erable vocabulary. During the year 1895-96, on account of the necessary
transition from the old to the new course of study, there will be no instruc-
tion in German in the Fifth Grade.
The instruction in German in the second and third primary
34 ADE.T.PHI AOADI5llfl1'.
grades is begun with the use oflarge colored pictures, from which are
taught the names ofthe persons and objects portrayed, with appropri-
ate adjectives, verbs, and phrases of position.
Gradually, a few simple songs are learned, poems committed to
memory, and guessing games played. Later, simple stories are told,
and reproduced by the children. Object lessons on simple plant and
animal life are also given in German. H
From the beginning, the vvords learned are made the basis of
reading lessons, which are written on the board and read by the chil-
dren at sight.
As a result ofthe instruction in the primary grades during the past
year, the children have acquired the ability to use about two hundred
and fifty words in conversation and description, and to recognize one
hundred and ifty Words more when used in stories told to them. In
all over jhur hundred Words are recognized. The children are also
able to read over three hundred and Hfty words in lessons written on

ADELPIJI ACADEIXJ Y. 39
V, Department of Natural History. Prior to the Seventh
Grade there is continuous instruction of a concrete nature in Botany
and Zoology, as well as in the elements of general science. In such
classes the student's powers of observation have been trained by
the actual use of objects and of pictures, but after the Sixth Grade a
more formal study of Biology begins, and leads as rapidly as possible
to regular laboratory work. The object of the course in Biology is to
reveal the broad characteristic phenomena and the laws of life, as they
are illustrated by the thorough comparative study of a series of
plants and animals taken as representative types.
' Every effort is used to make the student discover facts and their
relations for himself, and to express them accurately by means of
drawings, written notes and oral descriptions.

VII, Department of Physics.-Particular attention is given to-
the proofs of principles and laws, numerous experimental illustra-
tions and applications are made, and the solution of many practical
problems is required. The doctrines of the correlation of forces and
the conservation of energy are made the center of the system. The
course aims to explain the phenomena of nature, to convey practical
information concerning the numberless 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

D. DELSARTE EXERCISES.
Instruction in Delsartian principles and exercises is given to the young
ladies who may be qualified to enter such classes.
XI. Department of Physical Culture.
The Academy provides, as it always has done, scientihc and system-
.atic'physical training for all classes of students. The Adelphi does not
seek to develop experts in playing athletic games, It desires only to give
to every student a rational plan of physical culture and a safe acquaintance
with its benefits. Athletic sports in our schools need direction and re-
straintg but a wise physical culture, the education of the body which will
support the education of the mind, needs direction and development. Be-
low the Seventh Grade the students- of each class perform calisthenic exer-
cises at regular intervals in the calisthenic room under the supervision of
the Director. The calisthenic exercises are arranged with regard to system
and progression, so that the weakest individual can exercise without danger
of overwork, The exercises are selected for their physiological and
physical effects, not for mere show and appearance. From the Seventh
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.
Each student before exercising in the gymnasium receives a thorough
physical examinationg anthropometrical measurements are taken, and the
-condition of heart and lungs is recorded. Witli 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 cor-
Class exercise in gymnastics is systematically and progressively
arranged from a knowledge of what is best in each and every system.
Beginning with the simplest and easiest movements the exercise increases
as the strength increases. The classes are graded according tc the strength,
skill and ability of the individual, and each class is limited to eight mem-
bers. 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 the individual.
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, Horizontal Bar, lVaist Bar, Vaulting Bar, Running High jump.
Flying Rings, Trapeze, Swinging Poles, Climbing Poles, Horizontal Lad-
-ders 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 Department.
The course extends through two years. Candidates for admission
must be atleast eighteen years of age,1nusthave had eitherahigh-school
training or its equivalent, and must satisfy the Director that they are
competent to study kindergartening with prospect of success. Stu-
dents Who complete the full course and give satisfactory proof of pro-
ficiency and ability will receive a diploma certifying to their attain-

' "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 sur-

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 themg not by cutting them to

The whole of the 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 forthe 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 ngure.

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 dues 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. CDeKalb or Greene Avenue Stationsj, or by the
Greene, DeKalb, Franklin, Vanderbilt and Fulton electric cars.
ll. The Library and Reading Room.-The Library of the
Academy now contains about six thousand volumes, It is well sup-
.QDELPHI ACADED4 Y. 51
plied with the most useful works of reference, encyclopaedias,
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 the Academy.
During the year the library has received considerable accessions
through tl1e gifts of Dr. Henry Zick, and of Mrs. Goodnow, in
memory of her son, Clarence D, Goodnow, of the class of '94,
Among the principal periodicals on file in the reading room are

HI. 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 remaining space,
besides dressing-rooms, bath-room and offices, contains two large
rooms well supplied with all modern apparatus. In these rooms are
found a hand-ball court and basket-ball field, chest weights, back and
loin attachments, intercostal machines, traveling parallels and a
quarter circle, a set of Swedish apparatus and of climbing apparatusg
twelve-pound shots and hammers, with vaulting apparatusg 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 Held, which is now in the possession of the Acad-
52 ADELPHI ACA DEMY.
einy, is situated near Classon Avenue, between Park Place and Pro-
spect Place. It is near the Franklin Avenue, Bergen Street and At-
lantic Avenue lines of cars, and is about twelve minutes' walk from
the Academy. Its dimensions are such as to afford suliicient room
for all the usual games. Inasmuch as the iield has but recently come
under the control of the Academy it is still in need of additional
equipment, and the hope is that the friends of theAcademy will be
glad to assist in this most indispensable work.
IV, Equipment of the Kindergarten.-The rooms for this de-
partment are all well lighted, conveniently situated upon the first
floor of the Academic Building, and very near to the Lafayette Ave-
nue and St. james Place entrances. The rooms are well supplied
with cabinets in which the materials of work are stored and the handi-
work 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-tive years of the existence of the Academy, a very consider-
able supply of materials to illustrate the teaching of History, Geog-
raphy, Natural Science and Number, has been accumulated. The
best physical and political maps and a great number of pictures and
charts for use in the study of Natural History, Geography and polit-
ical and social History have been imported from Germany and France.

LIST OF BOOKS FOR USE IN THE STUDY OF ENGLISH, as
reading-books, text-books, and materials for the study of English grammar
It is not expected that any class will, in one year, certainly make use of
all the books that are mentioned in this list under the class numeral. A
generous selection is made, and the selection is likely to vary somewhat
from year to year, as experience dictates or as new material is offered.
No part of the new work of the Academy has been the subject of more
study or the cause of more interest than this endeavor to improve the char

acter ofthe reading in English. The discipline in formal grammar does
not become less thorough, and, on the other hand, the interest of pupils in
good literature does become more evident. Above all, the plan of the
English work, which makes it a basis of other studies, has succeeded in ex-
citing and sustaining a commendable appetite for information in geo-
graphy, history and science. 1
The Library Section of the Department of Pedagogy in the Brooklyn
Institute, has been making, during this Winter season, a special study of
reading-books for children. The annual report of this section recommends
that reading-books which convey dehnite information should be chosen
that pathetic passages should be avoided out of regard for the healthy ner-
vous development of the child, that ethical lessons should be given indi-
rectly rather than directly, and that dialog which presents ungrammati-
cal or vulgar language should be banished. The report also contains this
statement: "This Circle has examined carefully the books in use in the
Adelphi Academy and most heartily commends them, several of the mem-
bers testifying to the value of the books from experience in their families
during the year just closing. The result of the use of these books has been
a marked improvement in reading, a better use of language, and a very
evident desire for more informationf,

years. The Bursar, Miss Morrill, should be informed of any changes

corrected to date.
The Academy is indebted to many members of this Association
for their earnest efforts during the current year to raise funds for the
equipment of the Adelphi Playing Field. It is largely due to their
labors that the field has been fenced and placed in condition for use
as a baseball ground this spring.

Professor Warren T. Webster has been in the Adelphi Academy
so long that people have rightly come to regard him and the Acad-
emy' itself as almost identical. He entered the school before it was
incorporated, and this is his twenty-eighth year of continuous ser-
vice. During this time, at the head of the classical department he
has won enviable fame, both as a teacher of the classical languages
and as an educator,whose strong and admirable personality has
made a deep and lasting impression upon all pupils who entered the
collegiate department of the Academy. It is not too much to say
that Professor VVebster has not only won the respect, but the affec-
tion of every class that has come under his supervision. After these
twenty-eight years of service, Professor Webster's health has become
much impaired. In recognition of his long labor and need of rest,
the Board of Trustees has granted him a year's leave of absence, dur-
ing which time it is his intention to go abroad, mainly in search of
health and recreation, and partly also for educational profit. The
active work of controlling and directing the whole course of the
classical study in the Academy must now be placed in other hands,
and it is believed that the best man within reach has been secured in
the person of Professor William Cranston Lawton.
Professor Lawton is already well known tothe public as a
teacher and author. He graduated at Harvard with the Class of 1873,
winning at that time a place in the Harvard Chapter of the Phi Beta
Kappa. He was placed immediately at the head of the classical
department of the New Bedford High School, and remained there
for seven years, gaining recognition as a most successful teacher
of preparatory Latin and Greek. He left this position in order
to enter upon an extended course of postgraduate study and
of travel, chieiiy in the old world. He was a member of the
Assos Archaeological expedition to Asia Minor in the year 1881.
He also lived and studied for several years in Germany and Italy.
Afterwards, for seven years more, he was Professor of classical
languages in one of the nnest preparatory schools in the city of
Boston, and was also actively engaged in the efforts to support the
ADELPHI ACADEMY. 85
American School of Greek at Athens, and to raise funds for the
purchase of the site of the temple at Delphi. After the school in
which Professor Lawton was engaged passed under a new manage-
ment, he left it and engaged in literary work and in lecturing. He
also did collegiate work in instruction at Bryn Mawr and Columbia
College. In the latter institution he now holds a lectureship, In
recent years he has been much interested in university extension
work, and his course of lectures on H The Literary Study of Homer "
attracted the favorable attention of audiences at the Brooklyn Insti-
tute. Mr. Lawton is a member ofthe American Philological Associa-
tion and of the Archaeological Institute, and for four years held the
position of Secretary to the latter organization. His literary talents
and fine aesthetic discrimination are well known to all readers of the
Atlamic Mofzilzbf, in which a large amount of his published work
has appeared. His extended travels in Greece and Asia Minor,
especially in connection with the Expedition to Assos, and with the
American Greek School at Athens, have enabled him to give a strong
local color to his studies of classical authors, and many of the obser-
vations which were the result of his sojourn in the East have already
become familiar to the readers of the Aflanizk. In 1889 he published,
through the house of Houghton, Miiiilin 8: Co., a scholarly and in-
teresting volume, entitled 'K Three Dramas of Euripidesf'
