Theme -- School Life
gton, Maine, State Normal Sch I
We the students of 1T2l.1'lNl1lg'tOl'1 State
Normal School, dedicate the 1936
Elflflzssimizss to our principal,
VVILBVERT G. MALLETT,
in honor of the liftieth 2l1lI1lVCI'SZ1I'y of his
grzlcluzition from this school.
It is our hope that we. as teachers, may do for
others even in 21 small degree that which he has
clone so willingly and unsellishly for us.
XVILBERT G. MALLETT, A. M
As we look hack over our experiences in l":irmington State Normal
School, we hurl that the life of the school holcls fully as great 11 sig-
nificance to us as do the classes which we have zittenclecl.
ln planning the il 513115 Eiflfr:ssliNi2ss, we have zittenipted to capture.
in passing, some of the phases of school life which have seemed out-
standing. W'e hope that in making this hook we have created Z1
permanent record of the scenes and activities which we shall most, want
to remeniher in the years to come when our days at Fzirniington Normal
will be only memories.

THE NORMAL SCHOOL IN 1865
OVERNOR ABNER COBURN signed an act of the Legislature,
March 25, 1863, authorizing the establishment of two normal
schools, one in the eastern and one in the western part of Maine.
The trustees of Farmington Academy offered their building with
an additional room and their offer was accepted. Ambrose P. Kelsey,
A. M., principal of Farmington Academy, became the head of Maine's
first normal school which opened on August 24, 1864, with an enroll-
ment of 31.
,vi :ti W - ..T - , id ,
1-IE Normal School as it appeared from 1888 to 1896 is shown
here. In 1888 the wooden ell was removed and is now a dwelling
on Middle Street. The new ell which is shown here was added at a cost
of 158,000 George C. Purington, A. M., was principal at that time.
The largest number of students attending school during any term of
this period was 192 students in 1895 to 1896.
NORMAL SCHOOL MAIN BUILDING
I-IE building of a new brick front was the Hnal step in the remodel-
ing of the Farmington Academy building to the present form.
This took place from 1895 to 1898. The tower which had stood in the
center of the front was replaced by a new and finer one, which is featured
as the frontispiece of this book. p
NORMAL SCHOOL ENTRANCE
HE broad cement steps and covered portico which now form the
entrance to the main building replaced the old steps and narrow
doorway to the building of 1805. The vines now covering the walls
were planted by graduating classes at various Arbor Day observances,
as were the trees which line the walks leading to the steps.
HE Alumni Gymnasium was made possible by the Cooperative efforts
of alumni of the years 1866 to 1930, the student body of 1931 to
1935, and the State.
The ground was broken on Arbor Day, May 1931. The building
was first used in December, 1931, when only partially Hnished. The
interior was completed in 1932 and the stage equipped in 15333 to 1934.
I-IE Training School was built by the town of Farmington and
equipped by the State at a combined cost of S106,000. It was first
used in the fall of 19322, replacing the Model School which had been
housed on the first Hoor of the Normal School building and the town
grade school on Middle Street. All eight grades of the village and a
kindergarten are located here.
URINGTON HALL, the oldest dormitory, was built by a special
appropriation of the Legislature of 1911. It is named for George
C. Purington, A. M., principal from 1883 to 1009. The land on which
the building stands was a part of the former home lot of Mr. Purington.
The building was occupied for the hrst time at the opening of the
school year of September, 1914. The cost of the building was approxi-

OUTH HALL was built to take care of the increased enrollment
following the World War. It was first occupied by students in
the winter of 1925.
The general plan of the building is much like that of Purington
Hall, somewhat modified in the interior. Its student capacity, 105, is
the same. The recreation room in the basement is a special feature of

HE Annex provides administration offices for the Home Economics
department as well as classrooms, library facilities. and quarters
for the nursery school. The nursery playground adjoins.
The building was formerly a private home but has been adapted
for school use. It was purchased in 1930.
HE Home Economics cottage, the senior practice house, was first
occupied in 1916. It was a private home before that time. The
cottage becomes the home of half of the senior class at a time, directed
by Miss Doris Lake. Spacious foods and clothing laboratories are in the
rear of the main building. Adjoining is the Mary Palmer Garden.
COTTAGE LIVING ROOM
HE practice house is a home where senior girls live for a semester
in order that they may gain experience in the phases of work made
necessary by a family of six adults and a baby. Each girl serves in turn
.as general manager, assistant cook, cook, waitress, housekeeper, nurse.
Major emphasis is given to social functions within the home, including
,guest luncheons, dinners and teas.

ALMER HALL has been maintained as the junior and senior dur-
mitory of the Home Economics department since 1029. It was
named in honor of Miss Mary Palmer, IIICINIJCI' of the Home Ifcunmnics
faculty from 192-L to 19251, and benefactor of the school at her death in
1513-L by her bequest Lnown as the Helen E. Lockwood Melnurial lfuncl.

HE VVILLQXVS, built for a private school for girls in 1870, main-
tained as a hotel after the great fire of 18815, was purclmsed for
the use of the Normal School in 151223, From then until the present
year the NVillows has been occupied by about sixty girls. lt did not
open in the fall of 19235 due to the decreased school membership.
HE general assembly room, known as Merrill Hall, was named for
I. NVarren Merrill, former trustee, through whose efforts a Legis-
lative appropriation made possible the changes in the building from
1895 to 1898. Mr. Merrill was the father of Carleton P. Merrill, pres-
ent chairman of the board of trustees, and of Mrs. Hortense Merrill
Keith, for many years a teacher here. Mr. Merrill's picture hangs over
the teachers' room door.
Merrill Hall has been decorated by the gifts of successive classes
and groups of classes. Examples of Greek art in statue and bas-relief,
classic pictures of art, enlarged portraits of former principals and others
conspicuous in the life of the school are found. Outstanding is a bronze
has-relief of George C. Purington, principal from 1883 to 1909.
SCHOOL LIBRARY SCENE
ITH the removal of the Model School from the lirst Hoor of the
main building in 19372, room space for library facilities was
made possible. Since that time there has been a continual increase in
the number of volumes by both purchase and gift. Students and alumni
have given at least 500 books within the past two years, including the
Encyclopedia Britannica presented by the Massachusetts Alumni Asso-
ciation. The library is managed by joint teacher and student activity..
HE aims of physical education are threefold, physical, educational,
social. The purpose of every gymnasium class is to work toward
'these aims: physical, muscle toning for posture and health through cor-
rective rhythins, exercises, mimetics, stunts, mat work, har work and
pyramids, educational, line self-control, poise, inhibition, and concen-
tration gained through well organized activities, games and dancesg
social, through games and dances, learning friendliness and fairness
to all. '
Three-fourths of the first year is spent in acquiring a foundation
in physical education for the student teacher herself. The last quarter
is an introduction to teaching. Second year emphasis is placed on
'teaching and also on acquiring more difficult skills and methods. In the
third year a course in coaching major and minor sports is offered to
'those who have acquired the necessary skills in games and are particu-
.larly interested in this phase of work.

PPORTUNITY to do practice teaching in rural schools is afforded
this year at the Red Schoolhouse and at Allens Mills. In former
years the schools at Fairbanks, West Farmington and Farmington Falls
have also been used.
Red Schoolhouse pupils participate in a school improvement league,
are building up a school library and improving the playground, and are
taking part in the safety campaign. The school is a blue ribbon school

TRAINING SCHOOL CLASSROOM SCENE
Training School Activities
HE training school of eight grades numbers about 330. The new
building, thoroughly modern, provides for varied curriculum
The girls of the seventh and eighth grades have a model kitchen
and dining room, where, under the members of the Home Economics

of the same grades have classes in industrial arts in the normal school
The library is one of the most inviting rooms of the building.
There children read for fun as well as information.
