      Governor Cox reported orally for the Committee on the President 's Report

 as follows: We wish to commend the most excellent report of President Patter-

 son. There is one feature of the report that we most especially desire to

 commend, and that is the consolidation of the Agricultural Department and the

 Experiment Station. We think this is very necessary, and the time has came when

 such a thing should be brought about.  We commend the report in its entirety.





      The report of the Acting President we also commend.  rThe recommendations

made hy him in regard to salaries, we asked be referred to the Committee on Salaries.

We approve the report.

     Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the report was received and

approved.

      The part of the Report with reference to the relations between the Agricultural

Department and the Experiment Station is referred to the Special Committee com-

posed of the Executive Committee and the Board of Control, for the purpose of con-

solidating and re-forming the Agricultural Department.





     At this point President Patterson stated that the Committee which had been

appointed at the meeting in Frankfort on February 3rd, to notify Judge Barker of

his election to the position of President had not made a formal notification to

Judge Barker, and that Judge Barker had expressed his desire that the formal

notification be postponed until the meeting of the Board in June; that Judge Bar-

ker was now present, and ready to come before the Board, and that this would seem

to be an appropriate time to make the formal notification in the presence of the

whole Board.

      Thereupon the Board stood upon one stde of the room; Judge Barker came into

the room, and standing on the other side, President Patterson made the formal




 




MMUTES OF ME, BOARD OF TRUSTEES



notification in these words:


                                     Lexington, Ky., Feb. 7, 1910.

Judge Henry S. Barker, L.. D.,

  Kentucky Court of Appeals,

Dear Sir:-

         Messrs. Richard C. Stoll, Louis L. Walker, William H. Cox, TIbbis

Carpenter and James K. Patterson have been appointed a committee by the Board of

Trustees at meeting held in the city of Frankfort, February 3rd, 1910, to inform

you that you were upon the date above mentioned elected to succeed James K. Pat-

terson as President of the State University of Kentucky, and to request that your

pleasure in the premises shall be made known to the Board at its annual meeting

in June of the current year.   This duty we now have the pleasure to discharge.

     The most responsible office in the University has by the Board of Trustess

(Trustees) been conferred upon you, an office second in dignity and in importance

and in far-reaching consequences to none in the Commonwealth.   The foundations of

the University have been well and securely laid.   Its period of probation is

already past.    It has established a prescriptive claim to life and maintenance.

Its organization is compact and effective, its staff of instruction able and

energetic, its revenues increasing every year with the growing resources of the

Conmonwealth and the increasing liberality of the General Assembly.   While dif-

ferences of opinion have existed upon policies and expediency, there are no em-

barrassing line of cleavage and factions are non-existent.   It will be with you

to perfect and enlarge this organization, to stimulate and encourage its staff of

instruction, to augment its revenues and to prevent the growth of faction and

mutual distrust, to co-ordinate all its activities to the attainment of the end

for which it exists.

     The University is an agency created by the Commonwealth for a definite end,

viz:  The education of her sons and daughters.   It differs in kind from all Other



Tune 1, 1910




 




MflTUES OF TEE BOARD OF TUSTEES  -  une 1, 1910



institutions created and maintained by the State. It is neither penal, nor re-

formatory, nor eleemosynary.   Sentiment may and should occupy a prominent place

in the management of these but in the up-building and conservation development of

a State University, it occupied quite a subordinate place.   All the activities of

the University are based upon the principle of a quid pro quo of competency, economy,

efficiency, a definite quantum of capable services for a definite cash equivalent.

Sentiment finds no place in the loans and discounts of a banker, in the Judicial de-

liverances of the bench, in the operations of the stock exchange, in the management

of steamship and railroad companies.   All these transactions are based upon the ex-

change of equivalent values.   So with the conduct of i University. Trustees and

governing agencies appointed by them apply to public uses funds not their own but

the property of the public.   They administer a trust, not for their own benefit, and

the benefit of their friends, but for the benefit of the public at large.   The idea

of trusteeship and all that it involves is often ignored.   Trustees and their em-

ployees are appointed too often on other grounds than integrity, capacity, efficiency.

The public too has come to believe that a public institution is a legitimate object

of public plunder, that it owes to unfortunates and incompetents and favorites and

dependents a living and feel agrieved if sinecures are not provided for them.    The

appeal is made to the sentimental and sympathetic side.   If conceded, the object of

the foundation is frustrated and the public, in whose behalf the trust should be

administered, suffers.   I have not been devoid of experience along this line,   Neither

will you.   The remedy is that the policy of the University should be dictated by a

sense of duty alone and that economy and efficiency and integrity should be the guid-

ing principles of action.

     You can make or mar the State University.    If you hold the reins with a strong

hand, if your colleagues know you govern discreetly, wisely and firmly, that you are

not simply primus inter pares, but master, you will secure a ready acquiescence and

co-operation, but to this end your colleagues and your trustees must know that you




 




MINUTES OF [Et BOARD OF TRUSTEES  -     June 1, 1910



are dominated by a sense of justice and of duty and that your path is a path of

rectitude.   Then will the State University grow  and flourish, lengthen its cords

and strengthen its stakes, rooting itself in the affections of the public and receiv-

ing from a generous Legislature and from an intelligent executive and from an appre-

ciative public all that it needs to make its work effective and glorious.  You have

a great opportunity.   You are called to preside over the destinies of an institu-

tion which ought to be a cheif (chief) factor in the progress and development of

Kentucky.  -Within these walls will be educated the men and the women who will realize

for themselves, for their contemporaries and for posterity and vast resources, agri-

cultural and mineral, which a bountiful nature has provided.   Within these walls

will be educated the men and the vomen who by moral power and cultivated intellect and

spiritual insight shall interpret nature in harmony with the principles of a rational

philosophy, recognizing the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man.   It will be

your duty to instruct, to guide, to direct, to co-ordinate all these activities,

material, mental and moral, to the end that latent potencies may be vitalized, moral

instinct quickened, spiritual insight deepened and strengthened and purified and

exalted.

     With intellect of a high order, you will bring to the discharge of your respon-

sible duties a judicial mind, a knowledge of men and of affairs, business capacity,

a sound morality, courtesy and integrity, important qualities in administration, and

when you shall have completed your work and laid down the duties of your office, to

be succeeded by another, may the verdict of your contemporaries and of posterity not

be that of the greatest of Roman historians or one of the best of Roman Emporors:

"Major privato visus dum privatus fuit et ominum consensu capax imperii nisi imper-

asset."

     Deeply conscious of the responsibilities of the hour, while congratulating you

on your election, this committee pledge the support of the Board of Trustees to make

your administration successful, hoping and believing that with the aid of the Devine

Providence, you will make good and upon your retirement leave the University on a

higher level than it has yet attained, loved at home and respected abroad.





     Judge Barker replied to the notification as follows:

                                              Lexington, Ky., June 1st, 1910.

To the Board of Trustees of

     State University of Kentucky.

Gentlemen:-

     Having been this day formally notified by the Committee appointed for that pur-

pose, of my election to the office of President of the University to succeed Presi-

dent James K. Patterson, resigned7  I hereby except (accept) the high honor thus

conferred upon me, and with rtur permission will assume the duties of the Presidency

at the expiration of my term as Appellate Judge, January 1, 1911.  The reason for

postponing the assumption of the duties of the Presidency to the date named, is that

I feel that it is due the people who elected me to the office of Judge that I should

fulfill the implied contract on my part to serve them for the full term to which

they elected me.

     In accepting the position so long and so ably filled by President Patterson I

recognize not only the natural difficulties of discharging the arduous and respon-

sible duties of the office, but I also recognize and appreciate the additional dif-

ficulty that must necessarily come to his successor, of being contrasted unfavorably

with one so splendidly endowed both by nature and accomplishment for the place he

filled so long and so well.   I have, however, put aside my own fear of a want of

ability to discharge the duties of the office, and rely rather upon my confidence in

your superior judgment. If the Board of Trustees, composed as it is of the ablest

men of the State, having only the welfare of the University at heart, and well know-

ing what my qualifications are, have elected me to the position of President, I feel

that I am Justified in accepting the place without regard to my own apprehension for



Tune 1, l9lo




 




MINUTES OF THE BOARD OF TRUIMSn19



a want of qualification.

     I am too much comforted in the knowledge that we have not entirely lost the

services, nor in any wise the deep interest and solicitude of our loved Ex-President,

who under the blessing of God, will be with us for many years as emeritus President,

and his supervising care and advice will be at our service in every time of need and

trouble.

     I do not deem it wise or expedient to unduly extend this letter of acceptance.

It seems to me sufficient at this time to assure you that I will give to the Insti-

tution my whole time and energy in order that it shall grow and prosper as it de-
