FOREWORD
This year book serves the double purpose of helping the students of Chevy Chase preserve a record of the principal happenings of the past year, and of enabling alumnae and former students to keep in touch with the changing conditions of life at the school. Incidentally it shows prospective patrons and students a less formal side of the school than that portrayed in the pages of the catalog.

Copies of the catalog and other material relating to the school will be sent in response to a request addressed:

CHEVY CHASE SCHOOL, WASHINGTON, D.C.

Chevy Chase was opened in the fall of 1903 under the name of Chevy Chase College for Young Ladies. The institution was subsequently known as Chevy Chase College and Seminary and later as Chevy Chase Seminary, while under the present administration, which dates from June, 1917, the name has been Chevy Chase School. Throughout all these changes, the significant part of the name, CHEVY CHASE, has been retained.

In clinging to the best of the old traditions, and in developing the school in accordance with the changing conception of modern education, we hope to widen still more the influence of Chevy Chase and make it a factor in girls' education in this country.

--- FREDERIC ERNEST FARRINGTON, Headmaster.
