Research Post #3

The three-year degree program was discontinued by April of 1946, and by the same time about half of the faculty that had been on leave for military service had returned.

Closer examination of the pictures of the classrooms for dual capacity women (those who wanted to be both wage-earners and home-makers) showed a variety of courses.  A typing class (obviously for secretarial work) had invididual desks for each student with a typewriter.  A class for phone operators had its students have office desks that included a mock operator set-up.  Sewing class had tables for groups of about eight students.  Cooking class had two rows of sinks, plus an oven at each end of the rows.  And a science class (probably biology, judging by the microscopes), with tables designed for groups of four.
