On October 2nd 1903, the Lowell Institute of Boston opened an evening school for giving instruction in the principles of applied science to men who were working at their trade and had not had an opportunity to attend college or a technological institution. For over twenty-five years the School has gone on, until now it is no longer an experiment but a highly valued part of the educational resources of Greater Boston. Its story is here told for the benefit of its friends as well as for the information of educators in all parts of the country who are interested in the extension of educational opportunities to the adult public. Of particular interest are the chapters dealing with students’ experiences and recollections, the positions obtained by graduates, the details of various courses, and the present status of the School.
