SCHOOL OF NATURAL HISTORY.
OBJECT OF THE SCHOOL.
The aim of this School is to educate practical geologists, collectors and curators of cabinets and museums of natural history, and superintendents of scientific explorations and surveys. It seeks to acquaint the student with the latest researches in respect to the structure of the earth and to the origin and distribution of its organic products, to collect and preserve specimens and arrange them for study, and to conduct original investigations.
The instruction is given by lectures and text-books, and excursions, when practicable, made under charge of the professors. Botany.— Candidates for admission to this School are examined upon Gray's "Lessons in Botany," or an equivalent, and are expected to be able to analyze, readily, common wild flowers. Beginning with the Fall Term of the first year, systematic and structural Botany is continued by illustrated lectures and practical laboratory work upon fresh, dried and alcoholic specimens. Students, throughout the course, are required to observe for themselves, and to make notes and drawings of their investigations. A series of these drawings, upon a uniform scale, together with the accompanying descriptions, are deposited in the library of the Laboratory. Each student provides himself with suitable pencils, drawing pens and paper, needles in handles, glass slides for mounting objects, and razor for making thin sections. For the first term, a Manual of Botany
