Excerpt from Report of the President of Bowdoin College, for the Academic Year, 1927-1928: Together With the Reports of the Dean, the Librarian, and the Director of the Museum of Fine Arts

The'committee on Religious Interests of which Professor Burnett is the chairman, has recently recommended that in creased opportunity for education in religion be offered the stu dents of Bowdoin College through the curriculum, and that there be Obtained the services of a full time instructor in the history of religion and in Biblical Literature. Apparently bow doin is one of the very few colleges in the country that offers practically no courses in the curriculum devoted to these sub jects. To be sure, there is some study and reading of the Bible in Freshman English; a few lectures on the Bible are given in my course in Literature; and every other year Professor Crook offers a course in sociology to a limited group of students on the Social Evolution of the Hebrew People. Nevertheless, it would be well for the College seriously to consider the enrichment of the curriculum along the lines recommended by our committee. In many colleges there is also clearly to be seen an increasing tendency to employ a College Chaplain. The Student Christian Association also makes a strong plea for the employment of a young graduate as full time secretary. The rather small group of undergraduates interested in Christian work has been carry ing on heroically; and their wishes should receive most sympa thetic consideration.

It is possible that as an experiment we may be able to use next year the Income of the Tallman Fund to bring to the College some distinguished English scholar in these fields.
