One of the first results of this convalescence was the establishment of a School of Mines at her State University, under the direction of Professor Norwood, Chief Inspector of Mines and Director of the State Geological Survey. The growth of this Department has kept pace with the marvelous development of the mineral resources of the Commonwealth. The course offered provides the student with a thoroughly good training and a firm foundation for efficient work in any branch of the profession, and prepares him quickly to assimilate that knowledge of the details of practice which comes only with practical experience in mining. Theoretical discussion is supplemented by laboratory exercises and actual field practice. It is the object of the Institution to prepare Kentuckians to exploit the mineral wealth of their native State, and hence the course is intensely interesting from the viewpoint of development of home industry by home talent. The College enjoys the use of two large and well-equipped buildings which are the equals of any in the South. The laboratories of Assaying and Metallurgy are provided with the most modern apparatus, serving nol only the purposes of instruction, bu1 proving of great advantage as a testing laboratory to those engaged in actual lioili'f Tost Room 43
