In carrying out the University's program for acceleration of all College and University work during the war, students in Harvard College who are in residence during the Summer term will work under the supervision of the Dean of Harvard College. Similarly, Radcliffe College students will have their work supervised by the usual administrative officers of Radcliffe College. Likewise, the Deans of the several Graduate Schools will be in charge of scholastic arrangements for graduate students. Men and women not regularly enrolled in any of the Departments of Harvard University will be under the supervision of the Director of the Summer School.
The assignment of many dormitories in Harvard Yard and the Harvard Union to Navy personnel makes it impossible to provide enough dormitory space to meet the expected demand from Summer School students. All Harvard undergraduate students, including new Freshmen, will reside in the Houses outside the Yard. All Radcliffe College undergraduate students, including temporary transfers from other women's colleges, will reside in Radcliffe dormitories. Only Wigglesworth, Grays, Farlow, and Walker will be available for other Summer School students.
Seminar on Youth Standards in Wartime
This non-credit seminar under the direction of Eleanor T. Gleuck, assisted by Mrs. T. Grafton Abbott, Consultant in Parent Education of the Division of Child Hygiene of the Massachusetts State Department of Public Health, is intended to provide a forum for the exploration and understanding of the increasing difficulties besetting youth on the path to wholesome self-management. It will meet throughout the month of July from 2:30 to 4:30 o'clock in Room 211, Emerson Hall, except on July 8, 9, and 10 when the Harvard Summer School Conference on Tomorrow's Children is in session. For the majority of its meetings, the seminar will convene as a whole for a one-hour lecture followed by three-quarters of an hour of questions and discussion. For some of its meetings, the seminar will be divided into six workshops for intensive consideration of practical programs, under the leadership of specialists in various phases of the youth problem. It is expected that each person registering for the seminar will participate in one of these workshops.
The course fee is $10, and application blanks for admission to it may be secured at the Summer School office, Wadsworth House. Individual sessions of the seminar may be attended upon payment of a registration fee of 75 cents. Regularly registered students in the Summer Term of Harvard University, who are studying in the Graduate School of Education or are enrolled in graduate courses in the Department of Sociology and Psychology, may attend the lecture discussion meetings of the seminar without payment of any fee. Such persons should present their Bursar's receipt to the seminar's registration clerk.
