     Ayes:- Iessrs. Frazee, Terrell, Patterson, Metcalfe,

     Noes.- None

     The motion was carried.






     Thereupon Mr. Clay Chairman of the Committee on President' 8
Report, reported for said Committeeorally as follows.


     In the Report of the President there are two suggestions
calling for action: One is that we change the name of the
institution from State College to University; and the other
is if we have funds sufficient we add two more rooms to the
President's House, for the use of his library. The Committee
recommends the addition to the President's House as we have the
funds.

     In regard to the change in the name of the institution to a
University, we did not have much time to consider this question
and the lawyers of the Committee thought there was maybe some
legal question involved as to how it would affect our rights
with the National Government and the various acts of the Legis-
lature, and in the meantime to appoint the President a Committee
of one, to investigate and state the reasons for the change of
name, and also how it would affect our rights.


     (They said they did not have time to properly consider it,
and as the Legislature does not meet in two years, we thought
it would be wise to suspend action on that part of the report
until the meeting just before the meeting of the Legislature.)


     Upon motion of Judge Barker seconded by Mr. Smith and duly
carried the report of the Committee was received and adopted
Judge Kinkead voting no.

Association to the amount of tRl5.O0


     Thereupon Mr. McOhord moved that there be appropriated for
the work of the Y.M.C.A. of the College, the sum of $150.00.

     Said motion was seconded by Mr. Clay put upon its passage,
 and upon roll-call the vote stood as follows:

penter, Brooks, McOhord  Hopkins, Kinkead, Clay, Smith, Barker,

MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,Jun-6, 1906 Page 95(cont'd)



     Motion of President Patterson was duly seconded, put upon
its passage and carried.






     At this point President Patterson read to the Board a special
report on the matter of a pro-osed Carnegie library, which is
as follows:



Gentlemen of the Board of Trustees,   Lexington, Ky. May 25th 1906
        State College of Kentucky.
     About the latter part of March, or the first of April,1905.
I addressed a letter to 'Mr. Andrew Carnegie of New York City,
setting forth the origin and organization of the College, its
income and expenditures, what it has accomplished and what it
could accomplish with additional needed buildings, equipments
and other educational facilities.  I stated in this letter that
I was in doubt whether state institutions came within the scope
of his benefactions.  If so, the State College of Kentucky would
be glad to be the recipient of his favor in any direction which
might command itself to its judgment. If not, an answer in the
negative would content us. A few weeks thereafter I suggested
to the Chairman of the Board the expediency of addressing a
letter to Mr. Carnegie along kindred lines, which he did. I
discovered, after addressing him, that he has shortly thereafter
gone abroad. He did: not return until late in the autumn.
Several months passed after his return without hearing anything
from him, but in March of the present year, I received from
his private secretary a blank form, with the request that the P.96
questions contained thereon be answered. These related to
the date of foundation, organization, number of teachers, in-
come, expenditures, sources of income, number of students on
the first day of December of each year for the last five years,
average income for the five proceeding years, number of books
in library, annual appropriation for maintenance of a library,
with the request that a statement be made, setting forth some-
what in detail the most obvious necessity of the institution in
the way of a building.

     The blank form was filled up and returned. Some further
correspondence ensued, leaving me in doubt whether anything
tangible would result from the correspondence. Somewhat later
I received from his Drivate secretary a letter indicating the
willingness of Mr. Carnegie to make a donation for the erection
of a library building upon certain conditions which were laid
down.




 






MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TTRUSTEES,Jun-6,1906 Page 96(cont'd)



    At this juncture I thought it best to go New York and
seek a personal interview with Mr. Carnegie, if at home, and
if not, with his private secretary, Mr. James Bertram.  On
my arrival in New York early in April of the present year,
I ascertained from an architect who was evidently in the con-
fidence both of Mr. Carnegie and his secretary, and who had
written to me in advance of my visit to New York, that Mr.
Carnegie was not at home. He, however, kindly arranged an
interview with Mr. Bertram at which he himself was present.
I, in conversation with Mr. Bertram, learned that Mr. 0aflegie's
invariable condition was that in supplying the funds for
library buildings, he required that an amount equivalent to
the suma given by him should be raised by the corporation to
whom the library was to be given, which should constitute a
fund, the interest of which would be applied to the upkeep of
the instution. This seemed to place an insurmountable obstacle
in the way, as I did not see how we could proceed to raise
such, sum as would meet the condition indicated.. After con-
siderable conversation, however, the private secretary agreed
that Mr. Carnegie would waive these condition in behalf of the
State College, Providing that the governing board would guarantee
an annual sum equivalent to ten ner cent oL his Drooosed bene-
faction for the maintenance of the orooosed library. To this
proposition I took the liberty 6f signifying, provisionally at
least, the concurrence and assent of the governing board of the
State College of Kentucky.

     On my return I communicated with the Chaitran of the Execu-
tive Committee the result of the negotiations and suggested
that in as much as Mr. Carnegie was booked to sail for Europe
on the 15th of May that he call a meeting of the Executive Oom-
mittee to consider the results obtained.  The Executive Com-
mittee met on his call on the 26th day of April. I then laid
before this body a detailed statement of the negotiations from
beginning to end. I armi gratified to report that the Executive
Committee promptly ratiLied what I had d-one and passed the
following order:





                                 State College of Kentucky
                    Agricultural and Mechanical College
                              Lexinton,Ky. Apr. 26, 1906
     At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the State Col-
lege of Kentucky, held on this day, the following resolutions
were adopted:



     Be it resolved by the Executive Committee of the Board of
Trustees of the State College of Kentucky;




 





MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES,Jun-6,1906 Page 98(contid)



     First that it acceot with gratitude and with thanks the
generous benefaction of Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000.00)
which Andrew Carnegie, Esq. L.L.D. proposes to give to the
Trustee of the State College for the purpose of erecting a
Library Building for tle use of the State College of Kentucky,
on the conditions set forth by him in the letter of his pri-
vate secretary of March 12th 1906.


     Second- That the Executive Committee of the Board of
Trustees of the State College pledge themselves to provide Two
Thousand Dollars ($2,000.00), annually outside of the exist-
ing income of the College for the upkeep and service of the
Library Building thus provided for by the beneficience of the
donor.
      )Signed)

                                State College of Kentucky



     It is with pleasure and pride that I make the foregoing
report to the Board of Trustees. I trust that before the ad-
journment you will promptly ratify what has been done. The
amount of the donation for the erection of the Library Building
is $20,000.00. The letter received from Mr. Bertram about the
beginning of May, to notify me that Mr. Carnegie has instructed
his cashier, Mr. R. A. Franks, Home Trust Company, Hoboken,
New Jersey, to honor the calls of the State College of Kentucky
for sums needed to pay for the Library Building as work pro-
gresses. I respectfully request that the Board of Trustees
will pass a suitable resolution, recognizing the liberality of
the donor.
                               Respectfully,





                                                       Page 99
     Thereupon Judge Kinkead offered the following resolution:
     Resolved tihat the whole matter w ith reference to the
Library Building be referred to President Patterson with full
and complete power to act; and President Patterson be author-
ized to frame a proper resolution tendering the thanks of this
Board to Mr. Carnegie for his generous donation.
