some years the names of the chaperones and social directors were
published. The first was Mrs. B. F. DeLoatch for 1922. In 1923 Miss
Bertha Carroll, who had been serving as Dean of Women in Watauga
College, Tennessee, held that office in the summer school, and was
also designated Social Director, in which capacity Miss Pauline
Sawyer also served in 1926 and 1927.
Such was the faculty provided for the summer school, 1921-42. It
was designed to serve two classes of students: regular college students
working for a degree, graduate or undergraduate, and teachers
working to secure certificate for work in the public schools or to raise
a certificate already
In the early years of the school the
ratio of academic students to teachers was about one to two, but in
1927, the last year for which distinction is made, the ratio had risen to
about two to three. Since that time many of the teachers already have
degrees, and are working for the Master of Arts degree, and many
others are working for a Bachelor's degree, so that any accurate
classification is impossible. According to the regulation of the State
Department of Education, effective July 1, 1941, certificates will be
granted only to those who have a Bachelor's degree. Accordingly,
most teachers now attending summer schools in the State are either
seeking advanced degrees, or taking courses, academic or
professional, to meet deficiencies they may have in the requirements
for certain certificates, while a smaller number are pursuing special
studies without immediate reference to either a degree or certificate.
No account is taken here of the Summer School of Law, which is told of in a
separate chapter.
