Physics and Natural History
Physics and Natural History.
Instruction in these departments, in the past, has been distributed among the members of the Faculty. The Chair of Physics and Natural History was created last June. Some progress has been made towards systematic work.
In Physics, instruction is given by recitations, lectures on special topics, experiments, illustrations and practical problems.
The school has quite a large supply of Physical Apparatus but much repair is needed. We hope soon to have it in such a condition that a due proportion of time may be given to Physical Laboratory work.
The Natural History, at present, includes Physical Geography, Botany and Anatomy, Physiology and Hygiene. In each branch, special attention is given to those parts bearing directly upon the technical work of the school.
