"1QQ YEARS EIF
PROGRESS <HND PRIDE"
With the strong support of the University of Maryland Board of Regents and Central Administration,
UMES has developed an academic program above and perhaps more impressive than any other higher
educational institution of its size in the East.
Today, the University offers not only a well-constructed and varied academic program, but a beautiful
setting that is conducive to learning. It provides each student a wholesome experience in a non-
threatening environment, an opportunity to develop into a well-rounded individual who is able to
assume leadership in today's society.
As the University enters its second century, there is no limit to the progress that can be made or the
educational apex that can be reached.
Dr. William P. Hytche,
In appreciation of ten years of outstanding service and achievements, the staff readily
selected Dr. William P. Hytche, as the honoree for the Centennial Yearbook.
As a campus, we are appreciative of his tireless service, his loyalty, his dynamic leadership,
his genuine concern for students and his personal commitment to the academic enhancement of
UMES through research and programs. His duties and responsibilities have carried him to many
countries abroad, and this has added to the international flavor that is prevalent on our campus.
This dedication page is our small way of saying, "Thanks for bringing this campus successfully
in another century."

The Process Continues
HARD AT IT . . .
while some consider it a
serious case of perpetration,
others know that they are hard
at their work. During class
everything is taken seriously
as students prepare
themselves for making the
grade here and eventually
making it in the real world.
AND TAKING IT EASY
And when it comes to a time for just
"cooling out," students tend to put the
books aside and make the best of their
free time. And when this happens,
sometimes studies are far from their
minds in an attempt to escape.
From the sometimes hot and dry yard,
to the cool comfort of the Student
Development Center, students find a
nice place to take a break. While some
engage in meaningful conversation or
playful moments, others enjoy the
solace of solitude. But everyone knows
that this free time does not last
forever, and it's back to being "hard at
OF OUR CAMPUS
U.M.E.S. has an array of per-
sonalities all rolled up into one
beauiful campus. The scenic
quiet setting of the yard and its
surrounding structures, as well
as, the jovial attitudes that the
students display give visitors a
sense of our beautiful "home
away from home."
Looking in Different Directions
As the year settles in and students enjoy
the campus, there appears to be an air of
diversity about. Even still, students from
different modes of campus life are able to
enjoy themselves, from the fraternal in-
volvement of "finding that diamond in
the sky" — to the Sigmas cooling out on
their plot — to the Alphas who simply
have a "chill effect." Who will ever real-
ly know "which way to go?"
It's Fall Festival Time. The Student
Development Center vi^as soaring with
action as various organizations and
^^^^^ groups joined together to make the
Fall Indoor Festival a success. There
was music to dance to, games to play, good food
to indulge in, and plenty of people to converse
with. A lot of energy was exerted by those who
had an active hand in making the Fall Festival
come alive, and the student body was able to
enjoy the experience to the fullest.
' -' --^Hi^^B^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^I
Continues . . .
Throughout the day as
students juggle their classes,
work and extracurricular
activities, they encountered
many different people.
Some were faculty
members who motivated
and challenged them.
Others were fellow students
out to fulfill dreams. But,
whether they were
students, faculty or staff
members they each brought
a special magic to the UMES

And thousands still shall praise thee.
All earth shall hear their swell.
And bind our hearts yet closer.
To thee we love so well.
We love thy spacious campus.
We love thy tow'ring halls.

We've learned within thy walls.
Stand thou forever glorious.
Full rob'd in living green;
Shine thou in endless splendor
Beneath thy trees serene.
Maryland, Maryland, home of Maroon and
Maryland, Maryland, thee we will love always.
All hail to thee fair Maryland
All glory be to thee!
Grow thou in strength and honor

University of Maryland Eastern Shore
Taking Pride in Our Long History
Residenls or Somersel County who like progress can ^J*^
point with pride to Maryland Stale College, the local
Eastern Shore Institution, which has grown from humble
origins to a great enterprise for the education of youth of
Maryland. The College is now a recognized landmark
rendering many worthwhile services to the citizens of the
The Old Milk House
Campus as it used to be .
Olney, Built In 1798
First Classes Held in Olney, Built 1798
Founded in 1886, the College held its
first classes in an old colonial dwelling called
Olney. This building was situated near the
outskirts of town on the unpaved road to
Salisbury. Ezekiel Haynie, a physician of
Snow Hill, built Olney in 1 798 when George
Washington was still alive.
With many claimants, Olney remained in
possession of the heirs of Haynie until a
court decision in 1867 ordered the property
to be sold under the trusteeship of Isaac D.
Jones, then a lawyer of Princess Anne and
Attorney General of the State. Jones sold the
entire Haynie estate to his friend James U.
Dennis, one of the wealthiest men of the
County. Eventually, Olney passed through
the hands of Louis W. Morris, Beulah Hirst,
Aaron D. Woodruff, and John A. B. Wilson.
Morris and Woodruff were local residents
and Wilson was presiding elder in the
Persuaded by Joseph Waters, a native of
Fairmount, Wilson sold the property to the
school despite some local objections. John
F. Goucher, after whom Goucher College
was name, made the down payment.
By the time Olney was deeded to the
school, it was badly in need of repairs, hav-
ing deteriorated to the extent of being used
as a granary. Trees, weeds, and tall grass
were all around Olney when the school first
opened. Inside the building the walls were
beginning to crumble. The elegance of
Olney in Haynie's day had passed, never be-
ing entirely recaptured or recreated. College
officials now say that Olney will be torn
down, but the building is still in use despite
some destruction by a fire in 1919 and the
telling effects of lime and age.

Third Principal 1899-1902
First Students and Teachers
The firsl sluderils enrolled in September of 1886 were put lo work cleaning ihe
grounds and making repairs on OIney. There were only nine students to enroll, there
were thirty-seven in attendance. Most of the firsl students came from the County, bear-
ing such well known family names as Dennis, Gale. Maddox. Tilghman. and Waters.
The firsl teachers were Benjamin 0. Bird, the principal, his wife Portia, and an assis-
tant named Jacob C. Dunn. Bird and his wife were natives of Virginia, but Dunn came
from Queen Anne's County. Bird was a faithful worker for school and community and
for many years the school preserved his memory through the Bird Lyceum, a student
organization that passed out of existence by 1930 ... In 1940. Crystal Bird Fauset. a
former member of the Legislature dedicated a new mechanic arts building in his
memory. Bird died in 1897 and was buried on the campus.
Most of the names were given when the school was under the control of the
Methodist Church. Methodists really look the lead in founding the school. They ad-
ministered it until the State took over completely in 1936. Early Methodists set up
the school as a Branch of the Centenary Biblical Institute of Baltimore with the idea
in mind that the school would be a preparatory one.
Receiving support from various Methodist Conferences during the early years,
the school look the name of the Delaware Conference in which it was located.
Although graduation certificates were given yearly beginning in 1887, there was no
four year graduating class unli' 1904. Methodist discipline and leadership were
planted early in the history of the school and continued until 1936.

College Given Many Names
The college has had many names in its history and the various names seem lo have
indicated the type of program and control in existence at the school. There have been
such names as the Delaware Conference Academy, Industrial Branch of Morgan Col-
lege, Princess Anne Academy, Eastern Branch of the Maryland Agricultural College,
Princess Anne College, and since 1947, Maryland State College. Oldlimers slip up
referring lo early names.

Federal and State Support
From High School to College
Most of the financial support after 1900 came from
I-ederal land-grant funds under the Morrill Acts and
the Nelson Amendment. In order for the State of
Maryland to continue to receive Federal funds under
an act of 1812, it was necessary for the State to give its
legislative assent to the Morrill Act of 1890. This act
set up the principle that no land-grant funds for
education were to be used in any state where a
"distinction of race or color is made." Land Grant
Funds went to the Maryland Agricultural College in
College Park, a predecessor of the present University
Receiving only six thousand dollars in appropria-
tions from the State, officials in College Park dicl not
wish to lose the badly needed funds which made up a
large part of the budget. Accordingly the President of
the Maryland Agricultural College, Henry E. Alvord.
was very interested in having Federal funds continue
at his college until the Assembly could meet and take
action on the Morrill Act of 1890. The Assembly was
then meeting biannually on even numbered year's and
would not hold its next session until 1892, two years
after the Morrill Act of 1890 became effective. This
would delay the receipt of funds at College Park. So
Alvord go in touch with Goucher and the two men
drew up a contract on December 31, 1890 designating
the Academy to receive Federal funds in compliance
with Morrill Act of 1890. The Academy was given the
name of the Eastern Branch of the Maryland
Agricultural College by this contract, and the institu-
tion in College Park was set up as the administrative
agency. But in reality control continued to be exer-
cised by the Trustees of Morgan College.
One month after the contract was signed, Alvord
reported to Governor Elihu Jackson of Salisbury that
the land-grant issue was of "utmost importance," and
that the Board of Trustees at College Park desired "to
fully meet the spirit of the new law" by designating
the Academy. Alvord's report contained the following
statement: To save time and economize expenditures,
advantage was taken of the existence of a school for
colored persons in Princess Anne, in Somerset Coun-
ty, known as the Normal and Industrial Branch of
Morgan College of Baltimore. A legal contract has
been made witn the representatives of that institution,
by which the school in Princess Anne, becomes the
Eastern Branch of the Maryland Agricultural College
and will so continue until the next meeting of the
General Assembly of the State, At the next Assembly,
legislators gave legal assent to the Morrell Act of 1890
and indicated approval of the contract.
Under the Nelson Amendment to the Morrell Acts,
the school's share of Federal funds was increased to a
sum of $10,000 by 1913. This sum with student fees,
made up practically all of the income of the Academy.
Yet, some persons in the State attempted to have this
income distributed among other scnools, including
the teacher's college at Bowie. But the United States
Bureau of Education insisted that the Academy and
the institution in College Park were to remain the sole
recipients of Morrill funds.
In 1936, the State agreed to pay the Trustees of
Morgan for their interests in the school.
In 1936, the old Academy had
been transformed from a high
school to a college. This transforma-
tion had been brought about during
the principalships of Frank J. Trigg
and Thomas W. Kiah.
A native of Virginia, Trigg served
as the principal of the Academy
from 1902 until 1910. Trigg brought
with him the influence of Hampton
Institute and Booker T. Washington,
his classmate. Trigg and his staff did
much to make the Academy a first
rate high school.
Thomas W. Kiah, a native of
Virginia served as principal from
1910 until his death in 1936. With
an increase in free public educa-
tion, there was a decline in the
Academy's enrollment after World
War I. A junior college program was
instituted under Kiah to meet the
competition from public schools.
This idea failed to bring desired
results so it was later abandoned to
make the Academy a full fledged
four year college. The State was
reluctant to make appropriations for
expansion and furthermore World
War II intervened with its inroads
into student enrollment.
A major program was instituted shortly after the end of World War II.
The program was designed to revolutionize life at the College. The
development added a new outlook at the school. By almost any yard-
stick, the changes made since the War have led to the establishment of
a first rate four year college program.
The changes have been for reaching, touching every aspect of college
life. For example the construction of many buildings has changed the
shape and size of the campus. Old timers who come back have been
amazed and well pleased with the progress. Buildings constructed dur-
ing the past two years include two dormitories for men, a classroom
building, a dining hall, a faculty apartment building, faculty cottages, a
dairy and poultry plant, and a splendid agriculture building. An
athletic field has been built; pavements have been laid; and several old
structures have been razed or moved. The face of the campus has been
lifted by landscaping, drainage, and changing the course of the old road
to Salisbury which passes by the campus.
There have been many other changes since the War: A competent and
well qualified staff was obtained to carry out the offerings in several
specialized fields. The staff was greatly enlarged under the new program.
The entire organization of the College was streamlined, being divided into
four major divisions of Agriculture, Arts and Sciences, Home Economics,
and Mechanical. Industries. A new curriculum was carefully devised for
each Division and published in new catalogues.
The student enrollment was increased considerably, to three times the
size for any given year since the school first opened.
Appropriations for maintenance nearly quadrupled those for pre-War
years and an Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corps was added.
The College Library increased fifteen times its number of volumes and
athletic programs became nationally recognized. An impressive list of na-
tionally known speakers has continually added much to the community.
The College received its present name as a symbol of its new program.
INDUSTRIAL ARTS AND AGRICULTURE
INDUSTRIAL ARTS AND HOME ECONOMICS
Activities and social events were encouraged. Football, homecoming,
cheerleading, and ROTC are some of the many programs thai are now
or have flourished over the years.

The Board of Regents of ihe Universily of Maryland
employed the flrsl presidenu Dr. John T. Williams. Dr.
Williams was a native of Oklahoma and a former dean
of Kentucky State College. Able as an administrator, he
provided leadership with distinction in making a newer
and better College in Princess Anne.
The College is intimately a part of the history of
Somerset and the Shore. Its roots are deep. Its work has
been a lasting contribution to the people of the County
and the State. Its future is more promising than ever
before. Us doors are always open to visitors and friends.
Maryland Stale College has truly become "The Peo-
In 1948, the Eastern Branch of the University of
Maryland popularly known as Princess Anne College
became officially Maryland Stale College, A Division of
The University of Maryland.
The first head of the institution to bear the title of
president had been employed in September 1947.
When the new administration of the college was begun,
the President was instructed by both the executive of-
ficer of the Board of Regents and the chairman at that
lime that he musl build a good college; the land-grant
function musl be carried out; and as well as possible the
graduates of the school must be of such caliber that
their educational status would be unquestioned.
Dr. John T. Williams and the Board of Regents
According to the catalog of 1947-48, the purpose of the
College is to offer training in theory and practice by
which a student can make advancement in his field of
study and develop his powers to understand the world in
which he lives; to choose wisely his life work, and to
function agreeably and effectively in the society which
he must help to maintain.
The realization of this purpose is sought through:
1. Carefully planned four-year curricula in
Agricultural Education, Home Economics Educa-
tion, Mechanic Arts and Industrial Education, and
two years of Arts and Sciences.
2. Wholesome extra-curricular activities for training
in good sportsmanship, health development, and the
proper use of leisure time.
The Legislature for the first time (Maryland
Legislature) almost quadrupled the annual appropria-
tions for maintenance of the College by raising it from
$33,183.00 to $113,633.00. This increase meant a better
paid faculty, a larger faculty, and more efficient teaching
for students and the beginning of research.
In September 1947, the President of the University and
the Chairman of the Board of Regents met in the office of
the President of the Princess Anne College (now
Maryland State College) and carefully emphasized the
importance of students and employees respecting the
mores and folkways of the people of the local geographic
area, and the immediate need of strengthening the offer-
ings of the college.
In 1947, Higher Education in Maryland made a recom-
mendation that Princess Anne College should be
abolished. The principal reasons being:
1. The college is unfortunately located, access is
2. The institution has no recognition by national or
regional accrediting agencies.
3. It can never hope to attract a student body for effi-
4. As a branch of the University of Maryland it has
been shamefully neglected.
5. The control of a negro college by a Board of Regents
w^hose main interest is in a State University for
white students is not likely to result in satisfactory
facilities for negro students.
On December 17, 1947, the Legislative Council met on
the campus of Maryland State College to consider for-
mally the necessity for continuing the existence of this
particular state-suppcrted institution.
The growth of the campus was accelerated during this time.
A general feeling of opposition was directed toward
the decision of the group that recommended that the col-
lege should continue its operation. Views expressed by
the news media and certain groups in the State were so
adverse that a newly elected Governor of Maryland in
his inaugural address included a statement to the effect
that there would be no increase in funds for the college
until certain answers were forthcoming and a number of
decisions had been made.
In 1947, the assertion rang so loudly throughout the
State, negro citizens organized the Eastern Shore
Citizens' Association in an attempt to defend the college.
The association sent 750 people to Annapolis to witness
the attempts of their elected officers to explain to the
Governor of the State their desire to have the programs
of the college continued and improved. The Maryland
State College National Alumni Association was
motivated to send several different small groups and
committees to seek the ear of the Governor and the
members of the Board of Regents. The Governor did not
see fit to grant or recommend funds for capital outlay for
the construction of buildings. Not one single appropria-
tion was granted the college over an eight-year period.
The years mentioned were crucial years for the Col-
lege. A new administration had just begun, and there
was almost universal questioning of the accreditation of
the college, in comparison with the status of the College
Park area of the University.
The State Legislature of 1957 made the first clear-cut
appropriation of funds for the construction of buildings
since 1949. By this time, there could be no question con-
cerning the accreditation of the institution, because in
1953 the Middle States Association, in a separate evalua-
tion, had given its approval for full accreditation of
Maryland State College.
By way of comment, the Middle States Accrediting
Association in its report of that year stated, in part:
"Finally to be noted is the extraordinary spirit of
cohesiveness and optimism which pervades the Princess
Anne campus. From the President to the last freshman,
these people are convinced that there is a job to do, con-
fident that they can do it, grateful for the resources
which have already been put at their disposal, hopeful
that their very considerable needs will continue to be
met by the University and State."

Within the "One Hundred Years" of
University history, there have been
many changes, both physically and
academically. For instance, Kiah Hall,
once a landmark on the campus
outgrew its usefulness and safety, as a
result, it was recently dismantled. For
"Maryland Staters" Kiah Hall holds
many memories of commencements,
cultural programs, homecoming
dances, and basketball games.
Waters Dining Hall is still standing,
noted not only for its scrumptuous
meals, but also for the opportunity it
offered to "meet and eat."
Wilson Hall and "Enghsh" are
synonymous so if one graduated from
UMES or Maryland State, they passed
through Wilson Hall.
If the walls of Murphy Hall could
talk, they would weave a best seller.

Profile of Her
Her majesty, Veronica Yvonne Brisco, is the second of four children born to Mr. and Mrs. John William
Brisco. She was born on June 3, 1964, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Business Administration is Ms. Brisco's major with a concentration in management. Upon completing
her education here at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Veronica plans to further her education
by going on to graduate school.
Ms. Brisco believes that God is always on her side in times of hardship and in glory. "Nothing comes to
you on a silver platter." One must strive for success and advancement in life; for he who toils tenaciously
for what he wants will learn to appreciate it more, because he has worked hard to get it. She also believes
that self-respect will flow from such individual effort and striving. Happiness comes from within, one
must believe in himself in order for others to believe in him.
Her motto in life is, "the bonds that chain the body cannot imprison the spirit, so fly as high as thy wings
will allow", and always remember the sky is the limit.
