Program of the 28th Annual Assembly,

July 3 – August 29.

During the many years of Chautauqua’s history there has at no time been so marked a growth in all branches of its work as that shown in the last three years. 1899 marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Assembly and also the advent of a new régime in the management and organization of the many departments of the Summer City. Interests theretofore divided were amalgamated and administered from a common center. Wide interest was awakened by the infusion of new life into the various channels of the work and marked and radical changes were instituted in the physical side of Chautauqua as well as in its administrative policy. At that session the increase in attendance over previous years amounted to twenty per cent, and last season, under more adverse conditions, the visitors were equal in number. Again 1901 promises to be the greatest in Chautauqua's history. There is an especial national interest in the Pan-American Exposition to be held at the very gates of the Assembly, and the Chautauqua program is in every way worthy of the attention which it is attracting. The names of Governor Odell, President Harper, Joseph Jefferson, General Lee, John McNeil. Dr. Talmage, Senator Fairbanks, Dr. Gunsaulus, Dr. Francis E. Clark and Dr. W. S. A ment, add unusual strength to an otherwise strong array of men of prominence in the educational field who will speak at Chautauqua this summer.

As this is the German-Italian year in the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle, these subjects will receive special attention in the popular program. Among the lectures of fered will be a series on Rome by Mr. Percy M. Reese, lecture on Italy by Prof. George E. Vincent, and a lecture course on the German Influence in American Literature by Prof. M. D. Learned of the University of Pennsylvania. Also Round Tables by Prof. F. J. Miller of the University of Chicago, Prof. Otto Hel

ler of Washington University, and Dr. Geo.
D. Kellogg of Yale.
The Summer Schools have been strength-
ened in proportion to the growing demands
made upon them. A summer school for libra-
ry training has been added as a distinct depart-
ment. It will be directly in charge of libra-
rians of wide reputation. Special classes in
Spanish and English for visitors to the Ex-
position have been added to the School of
Modern Languages. Radical changes have
been made in the nature study work in which
the Nature Study department of Cornell will
directly coöperate with Chautauqua and in-
structors from that institution will be in im-
mediate charge. Instruction for children has
also been unified and graded for all ages from
the kindergarten to the graduate adult. Spe-
cial courses in manual training, nature study,
history and music will be offered in the Boys'
and Girls' Clubs, and vacation classes will be
organized for children between the ages of
the kindergarten and the clubs. In the other
departments new courses have been added and
additional instructors engaged.
It is interesting to note that there were more
than 42,000 visitors at Chautauqua last season
who were free to attend the 300 public exer-
cises, and 2,634 students attended 112 courses
in the summer schools conducted by 74 in-
Chautauqua is becoming more and more a
convention center. The International Execu-
tive Sunday School Committee will meet at
Chautauqua on Friday, August 2. The Hon.
Hoke Smith of Georgia is president of the
International Association: B. F. Jacobs of
Chicago is chairman of the Executive Commit-
In addition to the usual Chautauqua excur-
sions it will also be possible this year for visi-
tors to the Assembly to take advantage of
the Pan-American rates to Buffalo, which is
but two hours distant.
