Committee on a Summer Session
Record Group Number: RG 16.3.034
The Committee on a Summer Session was appointed in 1918 to consider
benefits of a winter vacation and a summer session of college due
primarily to the difficulties in securing fuel for the winter months.
The final report of 1920 discourages a summer session at the College.
Description of Records:
The records include reports submitted by the Committee to the faculty.
They provide summaries of faculty opinions, and arguments both for
and against a summer session at Mount Holyoke.
