1.20 cubic ft., 1 digital objects

The Bouvé-Boston School of Physical Education, an institution that offered young women training in physical therapy as well as in the teaching of physical education, became an affiliate in Tufts' Division of University Extension in 1942. Even after the school's 1950 relocation to Tufts' Medford campus, its administration was independent and its students took classes apart from the rest of the student body. Bouvé-Boston courses concerned aspects of recreation, human physiology and public health. When pressed by the Tufts administration to merge with the university, Bouvé-Boston declined and, in 1964, affiliated with Northeastern University.
