Dickinson College students given a day off classes to attend the local Agricultural Fair

Old West, Dickinson College, 1860, detail
10/08/1860
In Carlisle, Pennsylvania, the five faculty members, including the president, of Dickinson College met in their weekly meeting.  The only recorded item of business was to decide whether to call off classes on the upcoming Thursday so as to permit students to attend the local Cumberland County Agricultural Show.  The vote was in the affirmative, with authority to the President to change the free day to a Friday if the students preferred that.  (By John Osborne)
