Excerpt from Lowell Textile School, Lowell, Mass: Programme for the Half Session of 1897; One Term
The success attending the Textile School which is developing at Philadelphia, and the benefits derived by the industry from the Lowell School of Applied Design, established and maintained at Boston by Augustus Lowell, Esq., who is one of the representatives of the State of Massachusetts in our corporation, left no room for doubt that American conditions were favorable to the establishment of, in fact imperatively demanded, a textile school here.
The Trustees of the Lowell Textile School are incorporated under a special act of the Massachusetts legislature, for the purpose of establishing and maintaining a Textile School for instruction in the theory and practical art of textile and kindred branches of industry.
