Item Information

Physical Department Circular (1907)
This Physical Department Circular, published in 1907 by the International YMCA Training School, now Springfield College, explains the importance of physical training and the importance of this training during the industrial age. The circular includes photographs of individuals that have been pioneers in the physical education world, and leaders in amateur sports. It also includes photographs of training school directors in public schools, secondary schools, christian associations, and colleges and universities. The circular also discusses the general course requirements and the technical courses, such as anatomy, physiology, and hygiene that must be taken as a basis. It then goes on to discuss the time required for training, the equipment available to students, the type of men that are desired as students at the school, the expenses, the entrance requirements, and a brief overview of the dormitory life. The circular closes with an overview of the Alumni of the Training School that are involved and engaged in Physical Work.
