About the cover:  The Chautauqua Institution, located on the shores of Chautauqua Lake, New York, was founded in 1874 as an educational experiment in out-of-school, vacation learning. Today, the 750-acre educational center offers formal and informal courses in music, the arts, and religion, while maintaining a symphony, ballet company, conservatory theater, and opera company. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1989, the Chautauqua Institution served as wonderful backdrop to the 2005 Middle States meeting.
