by Departmental notes - 1916
A Shakespeare exhibit has been arranged to be given at the College the week of the Alumni Reunion. Many of its features will be of exceptional educational interest. Various departments of the College will exhibit material characteristic of Shakespeare and his age. The dining room of the foods and cookery departments will be decorated and arranged to represent an Elizabethan banquet-hall, and members of that department, appropriately costumed, will keep open house, and offer their friends Elizabethan cheer. Throughout the Household Arts Building will be pictures, utensils, and demonstrations representing the arts of the home. The industrial arts departments are planning a similar exhibit; the fine arts department is making designs for textiles, furniture, and other objects based on Elizabethan motifs. The costume of the period will be abundantly illustrated not only in the Festival, but also in prompt-books and sketches for plays, and in other ways. Amateur production of the plays in schools and colleges will be illustrated by a collection of prompt-books and of stage and costume sketches or photographs; the teaching of Shakespeare, by an exhibit of the schoolbooks studied in schools of the age, and by one illustrating the various stages through which Shakespeare teaching has gone in modern schools.
