THE 1934 PERUVIAN
Historical Sketch of Departments
The history of the scholastic departments in Peru is a checkered one. The organization and classification of subjects in the early curricula seem hardly logical to us today in the light of the present organization; still, in the early curricula appeared the seeds from which, rapidly or slowly, depending upon the deportment, grew the present arrangement. So gradual or halting have been some advances that the assigning of definite dotes is impossible or inaccurate.
The Normal School proper began in 1867 with a faculty of two teachers, Mr. J. M. McKenzie, who taught chemistry, mathematics, natural science, and Latin, and

Historical Sketch of Departments
Mrs. C. B. McKenzie, who taught history, geography, and rhetoric. Soon all of the subjects taught were classified into four divisions or departments, mathematics, natural science, language, and history and philosophy.
Thus it may be seen that mathematics, language, and the sciences were fairly well established with the school. Mathematics from the beginning held a fairly large share of the curriculum. Latin, Greek, German, and French have been taught at various times. The sciences hove grown gradually, the most important single step in their history probably being their division into deportments in 1892. The separation of

very early informally, it was not until 1896 that a faculty member, Henry H. Bagg, was appointed to devote his entire time to instruction along that line.
The department of commerce, as such, was organized in 1906, under the present Dean of Men, W. N. Delzell. The work in home economics was begun at nearly the same time, under Alice M. Loomis.
Work definitely in instruction in the industrial arts began about 19 12, under F. C. Smith. Hygiene instruction originated in other classes, but not until 1915 was it added to the curriculum.
