During the summer of 1961, the National Science Foundation will support 395 summer institutes at 260 colleges and universities. Some 140 of the institutes will offer courses in multiple fields, with physics included in 122 cases. Other institutes will specialize in mathematics (88), biology (29), chemistry (22), and physics (17). Of the 139 summer institutes which will offer training in physics, 131 are for high‐school teachers only, six will accept both high‐school and college teachers, and two are for college teachers only. Seven of the multiple‐field institutes will include training in astronomy for high‐school teachers, and five will offer study in the history and philosophy of science. Two institutes will specialize in the latter subject and will be for college teachers only.
