             Minutes of Meeting of the.
 Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky
                   June 4, 1918




     The Board of Trustees of the University of Ken-

tucky met in regular session at 11:00 o'clock a. m.,

on June 4, 1918, with the following members present:

Governor A. 0. Stanley, J. I. Lyle, R. Cn Stoll, P. P.

Johnston, Or., J. R. Rash, Rainey Wells, and Superin-

tendent V. 0. Gilbert, the seven members present con-

stituting a quorum of the present membership of the

Board.   The meeting was called to order by Governor

Stanley, who feeling obliged to go to the barber shop,

called. Mr. Stoll to take charge of the meeting, and

authorized President McVey vote in his place on all

matters requiring a vote.

     The minutes of the previous meeting were read and

adopted, and the Board proceeded to the election of of-

ficers.   On motion made by Mr. Lyle and seconded by

Mr. Gilbert, the offi cers elected at the previous meet-

ing were continued for theensuing year.    These officers

were:

     R. C. Stoll, Vice-chairman
     Wellington Patrick, Secretary
     John R. Dovniing, Treasurer,
     R. S. Stoll, Chairman, Executive Committee, and
Messrs. Ernst, Gordon, Elliston, and Johnston as membears.




 







     The President was then called on to report

any matters which he might have to present to the

board.   President MoVey then presented the names

of the candidates for degrees, which were as follows:





                   Insert





     Mr. Lyle: Mr. President, I note in the list that

you have just read, that you are presenting the names

of a number of candidates who are receive the degree

of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering.   Why

should the words "Bachelor of Science" appear in thiB

degree?

     President McVey:  To more nearly conform with the

customs that nrevail elsewhere.   I think it distinctly

superior for it to appear in this way.

     President McVey:   Gentlemen, I recormendthat the

degrees herein presented be authorized.

     On motion made by Mr. Wells and seconded by Mr.

Rash, the granting of the degrees recommended by the

President was authorized.

    President McVey then proceeded with his report to

the Board, which was as follows:

     The President further reported that Mr. John

C. Olmsted of OlmsLed Brothers had visited the Uni-

versity grounds two or three times and that he ex-

peeted to receive a preliminary r4port on plans for

the campus from him in a few days.  He further

stated that Mr. Olmsted had recommended that Mr.

Arthur Cooledge of Boston be employed as advisory

architect to work jointly with Olmsted Brothers.

     A discussion of the report of the President

then followed.

     Mr. Stoll: Mr. President, I am opposed as

a general proposition to building temporary build-

ings at the University.   President McVey mentions

the possibility of building wooden dormitories that

would cost perhaps $50,000, and they would be fire

traps.  We should have permanent buildings, for we

have too many bad buildings as it is.

     President McVey:   I agree with the proposition

that the erection 2f temporary buildings is a very

bad thing to do, but it is necessary to take care of

the boys and such buildings would be more fit than

what we now have.   I should not make this recoimenda-

tion except that at the present time it would be prac-

ticably impossible to secure labor and material to

build permanent buildings.   Of course these buildings

would be replaced by permanent structures later.




 









     A general discussion of the plans followed,

and the point was made by Governor Stanley that

there is too much heterogenity in architecture at

the University, and that some type of architecture

should be worked out and conformed to in the future.

Governor Stanley further advanced the idea that the

old dormitory might be rearranged and. used for housing

drafted men.

     President McVey said on this point: This plan

might be feasible if it were not for the fact that

there are a number of other matters that have to

be taken care of at the same time.    In addition,

the old dormitory would not care for more than 150

men and we should have to build barracks anyway.

     On motion rmade by Mr. Lyle and seconded by Mr.

Stoll, President McVey was authorized to make ar-

rangements with Mr. Arthur Cooledge of Boston to

act in the capacity of an advisory architect.

     On motion made by Mr. Stoll and seconided by

Mr. Wells, the President was authorized to enter

into a contract with the United States Gvernment

-for the training of enlisted men.   The arrangement

of the details was left to the President.




 











     With reference to the building program pre-

sented by the President, the following motion was

made by Mr. Gilbert:   I move that the whole matted

of rearrangement of buildings be referred to the

President and Executive Committee with power to act.

     Mr. Lyle: I d3&sire to offer an amendment to

-the motion that it is the sense of the Board that

a gallery should not be built in the Chapel unless

there is an outside stairway leading to it.

     Mr. Stoll: I desire to offer further amend-

ment that it is the sense of the Board that except

for the use of drafted men, that it is the sense of

the Board that no temporary or wooden buildings be

built unless it should become a matter of necessity.

     After discussion, the motion as amended was

adopted.

    2resident McVey then continued his report by
recommending
offering the following appointments, resignations,

transfers, and leaves of absence, which were approved:



Insert




 












     The roster of salaries was presented to the

Board by the President, and on motion duly made

and seconded, adopted by the Board as the salary

roster for tAhe coming year.

     The president then presented the following

appointments, resignations, transfers, and leaves

of absence, which were approved as presented:




 












     The President's recommendation regarding

Dean Anderson was taken up and discussed, after

which the President said:   "I desire to modifgy

my recommendation, and recommend that he act

as Dean of the Col1ege of Engineering at the sait

rate salary that he now reoeives for a period

0o one year .Lrom the time I came to the Univer-

sity, which would be until next September.   This

will give me time to read the fourth volume of

the testimony given before the Probe Committee,

which T have not read, and it will also give me

time to make further investigations regarding the

criticisms which have been made against Dean An-

derson.




 
















     The President then said: The matter of

the Dean of Women is a ques tion that has been giV-

ing considerable concern, and after careful consid-

eration, I desire to make the following recommenda-

bion: That Miss Anna J. Hamilton, Dean of Women,

be granted leave of absence for one year on full

pay, and that at the end of that time her connection

with the University shall cease.    in view of her

long service and the difficulties under which she

has worked, the recon aendation is made that she

be granted this leave with pay.

     After discussion, motion was made by Mr. Stoll

and seconded by Mr. Gilbert that the President's rec-
                          On vote
ommendation be 8ecepted.   the motion was carried

unanimous.

     The hour having arrived for the Installation

exercises, the Board adjourned.
