The document presents the history of the Chautauqua Institution, begun in 1874 as a Sunday school assembly and now a summer community involving the arts, education, religion, current events, and sports. Section 1, "Origins and Early Development," discusses the setting; founders; institutional beginnings; from Sunday school to university; home reading, the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle; and leaders William Rainey Harper and George Edgar Vincent. Section 2, "World War, Economic Crises, and Social Transformation." Discusses the presidency of Arthur E. Bestor; Chautauqua as a music center; ventures in other arts; and tents and tabernacles, an examination of the many independent and imitative Chautaquas throughout the country. Section 3, "Continuity in a World of Upheaval," includes discussion of the Chautauqua since World War ii and tradition and evolution as well as an epilogue by President Oscar E. Remick. Section 4, "Chautauqua in Photographs," presents a pictorial study of Chautauqua's place in time, the arts, education, personalities, architecture, and leisure. President Oscar E. Remick states, "The record suggests that Chautauqua is first and foremost an expression of faith in education and its ability to resolve the disharmony and strife which frequently mark the relationship between the old and the new."
