- National High School Institute (Organization)
The National High School Institute at Northwestern University was established in 1930. The first journalism institute was held the summer of 1934. The Medill School of Journalism's division of the Institute is traditionally a five-week course for high school students which touches on almost all phases of journalism, including reporting, creative writing, contemporary thought, feature writing, editorial writing, news editing and layout. The program consists of lab sessions, lectures and seminars, workshops, field trips, panel discussions, film clinics and evaluations by staff members. The records contain expense records, brochures, questionnaires, curricular materials, schedules, and grade lists.
The collection is arranged chronologically, with separate categories within each year's session. The categories include budgets, correspondence, bulletins, student lists, award lists, reports, activities and publicity.
