Summary:
". . . Oswego had latched onto a current fad, the open-air school. According to the catalogue, it was for 'teaching frailer children who didn't look rugged'. Such schools were generally intended for anemic children with a tendency to tubercular troubles. . . Children were provided with Eskimo suits, double wool blankets, and sleeping bags and were taught while sitting swaddled in robes with the windows of the room wide open. . . the experiment lasted only a few years."
