“CLARKE INSTITUTION (NORTHAMPTON).
Miss Caroline A. Yale, Principal.
…In June a class of four pupils graduated from the school — Bertha H. Dutton, Heber N. Haynes, Mary K. Trainor, and Alice L. Ware. The work done by this class was of a higher grade than that done by any graduating class for years and their diplomas indicated that fact. It is expected that at least two members of this class will enter other schools — one is already in a public high school and the other will enter a private school for young ladies.”
