This issue of a graduate catalogue of the Farmington Normal School is published at the solicitation of many of the Alumni
and is made possible by the generous subscription of over one-half
of the living graduates.
The older graduates still think of the school as the Western
State Normal School, its first name. When the Normal school was
established at Gorham, it was legally designated the Western State
Normal School and the name of this School was changed to the
Northern State Normal School, and so it is to this day as far as
legal designation goes. But with the establishment of a Normal
school at Presque Isle, "Northern" as applying to this School lost
significance even though the new school was called the Aroostook
State Normal School. So the legal designation has been dropped,
and the name of Farmington has been generally adopted.
The type appearance of this catalogue is a departure from all
previous graduate catalogues. The change has been made wholly
as a matter of economy of paper. We hope it rnay be acceptable
to the subscribers.
The larger part of the routine work in its preparation has been
performed by the principal’s secretary, Miss Ruth E. Gould, ’19, to whom we will all make acknowledgements.
Many personal letters have come with the catalogue data, all of
which the principal herewith acknowledges and wishes he might
have answered with a personal reply.
Whenever two addresses are given the reader will understand that the last given is the more permanent, or home address.
