"Joseph Kennedy helped initiate UND's hosting of the annual Tri-County Educational Association summer institute in 1895. A hundred students enrolled for a month of refresher courses in elementary and high school subjects taught by Webster Merrifield, Kennedy Ludovic Estes, Melvin A. Brunne, and Walter L. Stachwell. The charges were reasonable: $1.00 for room for the term, $2.75 a week for board, and $1.50 tuition for each course. The faculty worked for nominal pay or none at all."
