` - ‘ 2 THE s'1‘A'1‘1i L‘N1VlLRsITY.
_i_ The city of Lexington offered to the Commission (which was al- _
Y so authorized to recommend to the General Assembly the place ;
which, all things considered, offered the best and greatest induce- h
. ~ments for the future and permanent location of the College) the City _]
;Pa~rk, containing fifty—two acres of land within the limits of the city,  
__ \ and thi1·ty thousand dollars of city bonds for the erection of build- 0
A y L ;ings. This offer the county of Fayette supplemented by twenty
  ,; jtlrousand dollars in countybonds, to be used either for the erection
ii" ·~< > if buildings or for the purchase of land. The offers of Lexington
·- r; .; mid the county of Fayette were accepted by the General Assen1bly.` iv
‘ V     By the act of incorporation and the amendments thereto, consti- ll
  ` ;tuting the charter of the Agricultural and Mechanical College of  
I l ` Kentucky, liberal provision is made for educating, f1·ee of tuition,  
l V the energetic young men and women of the Commonwealth whose E
  means are limited. The present General Assembly of Kentucky I
A _. passed an act, which was approved March 16, 1908, changing the  
i· style and title of the institution from "Agricultural and Mechanical 1
v College" to that of "State University," the oiticial designation by
  which it will hereafter be known. The University, with the addi-
·‘ tional depart1nents··.vhieh_shall,. fliOl1)_ti1!)€_tf) time, be opened as the E
· __ ;¤ means placed at the Qisposa·lQof—the Tijmstsleé allow, will, it is hoped, `
‘ in the 11ot distant t'uture`do a greatwork in" advancing the educa-

, its character, it‘will_ appt-algwigthQc_o`1}tieiei1ce`tQo·_the people of allcreeds  
‘ » ._ ‘ and of no creed, and will endeavorhin strict conformity with the re-
  quirements of its oijganic law, its atZf2>r¢l equal advantages to all, ex-
· " elusive privileges to none. Tile liberality of the Commonwealth, i11
in supplementing the inadequate annual income arising from the pro-
[ ceeds of the land—scrip invested in State bonds, has enabled the Trus-
` ii tees to begin and carry on, upon a scale commensurate with the
{ wants of our people, the operations of the institution whose manage-
3 ment and oversight have been committed to them by the General
Q Assembly of Kentucky.
_- Scope 0f Studies.
L ln the act of Congress making provision for the class of institu-
tions to which The State University belongs, it is declared "tliat
  their leading object shall lie, without excluding other scientific and
w classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach such branch-
_Q cs of learning as are related to agriculture and the mechanic arts,
in ordcr to promote the liberal and practical education of the indus-
i _ trial classes in the several pursuits and professions of life." To the
_ three departments ol' agriculture, the mechanic arts, and military

it science, contemplated in the act as indispensable, an Experiment
3G_ Station has been added by·the·Un1ted States, while liberal provision
ity has been made 101‘·11`l'Sl71'l1C‘lilOI1 in all branches ot science and 111 tl1e
jy classics,. so that this institution IS far more than a11 agricultural and
mi mechanical college, embracring, as 1t does, 11ot merely the three
nty original departments, but eighteen others.
OH Dcpartxnent 0f Education.
OD ln 1893 the college authorities, in response to a (161112.11d for ad-
_y_— ·vanced instruction for teachers, organized a full collegiate course
M_ leading to tl1e degree of Bachelor of Pedagogy. In 1906 two full
Of collegiate courses, each with Education as a major, were substituted
,,1, for the course established in 1893. One leads to the degree of Bach-
SG elor of Arts in Education and the other to Bachelor of Science in
ky Education. Students are admitted to tl1e Freshman Class of eitherof
he these courses upon tl1e co1npletio11 of the course in Arts and Scie11ce
,,,1 in tl1e Academy, or 2].11 equivalent course i11 an Accredited School.
by The Kentucky Experhucnt Station.
H_ The Agricultural Experiment Station of the State University was
he established by the Executive Committee of tl1e Board of Trustees in
d, September 1885, when tl1e Departnient was organized a11d a Director _
a_ appointed. In 1886 the Station was recognized and named by the
in General Assembly of Kentucky. In 1887 it became tl1e bcnelieiary
ds of the lirst annual 2l])])l'O])1`liltlOll of $15,000, under the Hatch Act
,G_ providing for tl1e establishment of Agricultural Experiment Stations
X_ tor tl1e States a11d Territories. 1111900 "for the lI101'€ complete e11—
in dowment" of Agricultural Experiment Stations, a11 act of Congress,
,O_ known as the Adams Act, appropriated to each State tllld T€l'l`ll3()1'y
,S_ $5,000 for the year ending June 30, 1906, Etlld tl1e same sum with till
he increase of $2.000 per an11u1n for tive yca1·s, after which the maxi-
_€_ n111m of $15,000 shall continue without change.
M The work of tl1e Station is directed to two objects: 1. To acou-
stant succession of experiments made by specialists, inordcr to learn
what applications of science will insure the best returns from tl1e
U- farm, the garden, tl1e orchard, tl1e vineyard, the stockyard illld the
at dairy. 2. To tl1e publication of bulletins announcing such results
ld of the experiments as are found to be valuable to the people of Ken-
h_ tucky who seek proiit from any one of those prime sources of wealth
SS, —tl1c soil, the llock, and the herd.
,S_ Results of experiments have been published i11 eighteen annual
he reports Etllll one hundred and thirty-tl1ree bulletins, illlil general
ry appreciation of their utility is shown in tl1e fact that, while no bulle-

 V ‘. I
  tin is sent except upon application for it, the mailing list of the W
_IVV " Station contains about 13,000 names, and is ever increasing. fo
With an ample endowment, a large and commodious building w
planned for the purpose, adequate apparatus, a good experimental
farm conveniently situated, and a stafif of 17 scientists engaged i11 7 Ol
L_ divisions of research and in correspondence with other stations, the hi
, Z. Kentucky Experiment Station is not only an important adjunct to Sl
‘   the University in the education of students for the leading industrial te
YZ pursuits, but, directly or indirectly, through the continual diftusion_ sy
  ol? knowledge for the benefit of so large a proportion of our popula- oi
' * tion, it is bound to be extremely useful to the Commonwealth. cl
  Location. Ul
° ’i The State University   located in the former City Park, in the
  southern part of the city of Lexington and nea1· the Cincinnati
»,.— Southern Railway. The site is elevated and eonnnands a good view fe
_ _ of much of the city and of the surrounding country. B
ii. Lexington, now a growing city of forty thousand inhabitants, is al
I .--‘ in the heart of the far-famed Bluegrass region, a region distin- in
  guished for fertility and healthfulness, wealth and beauty. Numer- Tl
  ous schools and churches, an intelligent and refined population, well
,- .; paved streets, handsome buildings, extensive water—works, and an th
`ii , unsurpassed system of street electric railways make Lexington lil
¤ Q attractive as a seat of learning and place of residence, while the 0<
.. splendid stock farms scattered over the large body of fertile country Sl?
1   around it afford advantages hardly equaled elsewhere for the student
V   who desires to become familiar with thebest breeds of horses, cattle, 20
.   sheep, and swine in America. Moreover, with railroads diverging in fil
i Z seven directions, Lexington is the railroad center in Kentucky, and
QQ in direct connection with Louisville, Cincinnati, Maysville, Hunting- dt
` M ton, and Chattanooga, and with more than seventy counties of the in
{ Commonwealth. And when to the electric railways now i11 operation Tl
- to Georgetown, Paris, Versailles, and Frankfort, those projected to **1
ZZ \Vinchester, Richmond, and Nicholasvillc shall be added, the hourly In
p   trains of these roads will enable students residing near them to at- is
tend the University conveniently from their ho111es.
_ Grounds. SU
  The campus of the University consists of fiFty—two acres ofland, lil?
{ located within the corporate limits of Lexington. The South Lime- Bl
.; stone electric car line extends along the western border of the cam-
- pus, affording opportunity to reach i11 a few minutes any part of tl1e F0
‘ __ city. The campus islaid outin walks, drivesand lawns, and isplant-·  
. ed with a choice variety of native and exotic trees and shrubs, to ll

 enocxns. 5
@118 which additions are constantly being made. Two and a half acres,
forming the 1101‘bl1·9£LSi] portion of the campus, inclosed and provided
iliiig with a grand—stand, are devoted to the field sports of the students.
ntal About three·quarters of a mile south of tl1e campus, on the Nich-
11 7 olasville pike, is the Expe1·iment Station Farm, consisting of two
the hund1·ed a11d forty-three ac1·es. He1·e the field expe1·iments of the
t to Station are conducted, and students have opportunities to witness
zrial tests of varieties of field crops, dairy tests, fertilizer tests, frnit·
sion_ spraying tests; in short, all the scientific experimentation of a thor-
ula- oughly organized Station. The front of the farm is pasture and or-
chard. The rear portio11 is divided off into two hundred one-tenth acre
plots, for co11venie11ce in making crop tests.

an inviting place for exercise, for which ample provision has also  
_Y j_ been made in the rear lawn, with tennis court and croquet grounds,
_ n as well as in the large gymnasium. S
Section 4 of the act approved March 21, 1900, appropriating money c
. for the purchase of the grounds and the erection thereon of this 1*
. building, provides: v
_   "The Board of Trustees shall appoint three prudent, discreet, in- (3
I‘ telligent women; members in good standing of one of the 1·eligi0us _
it organizations recognized by the laws of the United States, who shall `  
  constitute a board of supervision or control to manage and superin— (
‘- tend, under the direction of the Board of Trustees, the do1·n1itory `
`,‘' for young wo1nen."
  The Hall is under the immediate direction and management of an (
_' A experienced and competent Matron, appointed by the Board of
  Supervision. It contains sixty-eight commodious and well furnished (
_ ` _. rooms, affording accommodation fo1· one hundred and twenty—four ‘
  persons, for whom excellent board and lodging are furnished at  
Q? three dollars ($3) per week, the occupants furnishing their own l
‘   napkins, towels, and bedding, except mattresses and pillows, and _
jE- paying for their own laundry. 1
I { U Built durably of stone, brick, wood and iron, and practically fire-
_ _" proof; with adequate provision for safety, heat, light, ventilation,
i   bathing and exercise, this Hall offers all the comforts and conveni·
1 U ences of a well—appointed home.
  County appointees are first supplied with rooms, and these, by
.   act of the Legislature, are assigned by lot.
  The ground, building and equipment cost $00,000, and the Hall
LY has been occupied since January 1004. Probably no educational
_' institution in the South affords a more attractive home for young
i· women. Those who are favored with a county appointment, the
ij inode for obtaining which is set forth elsewhere in this catalogue,
5 will find that residence at the State University is brought within the
.   means of any young woman who earnestly desires to fit herself for a
life of usefulness.
‘  Development.
; The growth of the University from year to year is shown as follows:
_ l . 1802. To establish and endow a college, chiefly for instruction in
— agriculture and the mechanic arts, an act of Congress apportioned to

also each State, fo1· each of its Senators and Representatives in Congress,
lds 30,000 acres of the public land.
’ 1865. The General Assembly of Kentucky having accepted the
State’s portion under the conditions prescribed, established the Agri-
'-l€5’ cultural and Mechanical College, making it one of the colleges of
this Kentucky University, then recently united with Transylvania Uni-
versity and located at Lexington, citizens of Lexington and its vicinity
iU_ donating $110,000 to the Curators of the University to buy a site for
DHS the College. The General Assembly having authorized the Connnis-
mu · sioners of the Sinking Fund to sell the 330,000 acres apportioned to

H.}, State realized for its land only $165,000.
1866. The College opened with a President, four Professors and
an a Commandant.
Of 1878. Dissatisfied with the management of the College by the
gd Curators, who were engaged in a long factional strife, the General
ur Assembly severed the connection with the University, and appointed
at a committee to re-locate the College, to provide for its continuance
