The Social Basis of the New Education for Women

by Frederick H. Sykes - 1917

The opportunity that your invitation accords me to address you to-day I have accepted with the alacrity born of many happy memories.1 That I am able to greet to-day the first households arts alumnae of this School, in the organization of which I was privileged to have a part, wreathes roses around the occasion. I miss, be assured, the fellowship of my old fellow-workers; I wish you had not an incomparably better director in Professor Bigelow and could miss me. My benediction goes to this memorable first class, now carrying the message and training of this School with beneficent activity into life. What I wish this address could be is just an interpretation of this School of Practical Arts, as I look back on it, as I look out on society that needs it, as I look forward with a dim conception of the potentialities of this School and of the work of its disciples.
