Biographical / Historical

The New Bedford Textile School (NBTS) was devoted to the theory and practical application of textile technology, specifically related to cotton. It was located on Purchase Street in New Bedford, Massachusetts which, in 1909, was the second-largest cotton manufacturing city in the country. This, and its proximity to textile manufacturing centers such as Fall River and Providence drew many students who hoped to work, or be promoted in, the nearby mills. Students studied in programs such as Designing, Cloth Calculation and Analysis, Weaving, and Chemistry, for periods ranging from one term to two years. Frank Kallish attended NBTS from 1909-1911, earning a diploma in General Cotton Manufacturing in 1911. He is listed in later NBTS catalogues as an alumni working as a designer at the Beacon Manufacturing Company in New Bedford.
