MARYLAND AGRICULTUEAL COLLEGE.
HISTORY AND LOCATION.
The Maryland Agricultural College
Was the second of its kind, still in existence, in America, to open its
doors to students, and the first and only one established by the volun-
tary contributions of public-spirited citizens. The charter, "to estab-
lish and endow an agricultural college in the State of Maryland -^ * ^
in which tlie youthful student may especially be instructed in those
arts and sciences indispensable to successful agricultural pursuits,"
was granted in March, 1856, being more than six years before the
first Federal legislation for a similar purpose.
As a foundation, about five hundred liberal residents of Marv-
land, most of them directly interested in the agricultural property
and progress of the State, together with a few^ non-residents, sub-
scribed the amount necessary to purchase the farm and erect the
first buildings. Subsequently the State made special appropria-
tions to the College, which are still continued, and this institution
receives the benefits of the Congressional land grant to Maryland,
under the act of July 2d, 1862 ; also the liberal appropriations
directly from the Federal treasury under the acts of Congress of
March 2d, 1887 and August 30th 1890.
The College is located three-fourths of a mile from College
Station, Prince George's Co., Md., on the Washington Branch
of the Baltimore and Ohio Kailroad. Numerous trains daily
afford easy communication wntli all points. College Hill, on which,
stand the principal college buildings, is a beautiful eminence, over,
looking wide stretches of country. The surrounding farm embraces
two hundred and eighty-six acres ; sixty acres are in woodland, and
most of the remainder is under cultivation. Tlie conformation of
the farm and diversity of its soil offer excellent opportunities for
varied agricultural operations, and this, together with the beautj^ and
healthfnlness of the site, admirably adapts the location to the purposes
of an educational institution of this character. The city of Wash-
ington is onlj' eight miles distant ; this proximity to the ISTational
Capital gives the College exceptional advantages in the valuable aid
which it derives from the libraries and scientific collections of the
different Departments of the Government.
The post-office address is College Park, Prince George's Co., Md.
Telegrams and express matter should be sent to College Station
(B. and 0. K. K.)
MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.
BUILDINGS AND EQUIPMENT.
The main building, standing in the midst of a fine grove of
forest trees, is a massive brick structure of six stories, one hundred
and twenty feet long and fifty-four feet wide. It possesses accommo-
dations for one hundred and fifty students, apartments for professors,
class-rooms, chapel, museum, library, reading-room, armory, parlors,
dining-room, and the necessary offices. The dormitories are spacious,
well-ventilated, and heated by steam. Well water, forced to tanks in
the attic, is supplied to the several floors by a system of pipes ; the
water has mineral properties and is considered particularly healthful.
Every summer the building is repaired and renovated, so as to
keep it in a fresh and comfortable condition; sanitary precautions
receive constant attention.
The Chemical Laboratory, a separate brick structure close to the
main building, has been recently thoroughly refitted. It is furnished
with water, steam and gas, and with all the apparatus of a well
The Gymnasium, another detached building, erected for the pur-
pose, affords opportunity for healthful exercise and muscular develop-
ment, in addition to the military drill, and when the latter is prevented
by inclement weather.
The Agricultural Experiment Station has its offices and working
quarters in the substantial brick structures, formerly known as
"Rossburg," now completely renovated, and situated about sixty rods
from the college buildings, in the midst of the fields especially
assigned to experiment purposes.
The accompaning engraving re'presents the main Coll'ege building,
the Experiment Station and the President's house, which is located a
few hundred yards from the former.
Several thousand dollars have recently been expended for improving
the equipment of the College, and the facilities for instruction in al
its departments are now equal to those of any college in the State.
Particular attention has been given to providing the latest and most
approved models, materials and appliances for effectively teaching the
several branches of natural history and physical science. The work
shops and the college farm have been well supplied with tools, imple-
ments, machinery and typical animals of several breeds of improved
farm-stock. Further additions will soon be made to the illustrativ
material in the departments of agriculture and horticulture.
6 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.
Candidates for admission to the Freshman class are examined
orally and in writing upon the common English branches, namely,
reading, spelling, elements of English grammar, geography, common
school arithmetic, and history of the United States. These examina-
tions must be satisfactorily passed in order to entitle one to full
standing in the Freshman class, and give assurance of subsequent
The public educational facilities are believed to be such, in all
parts of the State, as to render it unnecessary for the college to
maintain a preparatory department, but if students present them-
selves, who, for lack of proper opportunities, are imperfectly pre-
pared, yet show willingness and ability to do extra work, they will be
admitted, conditionally, upon passing a reasonable part of the entrance
examinations, and an instructor will be assigned to assist them in
meeting the conditions and acquiring a full standing in their class.
^Applicants for admission to the higher classes must pass the
entrance examinations and also be successfully examined on all of
the studies completed by the classes they wish to enter, or on branches
No one is advised to apply until fifteen years of age, although
physical and intellectiiral development are regarded as more impor-
tant and will be considered rather than age. Every applicant
must furnish a certificate of good character satisfactory to the
Faculty ; this should be obtained from his pastor, or last teacher, and
presented on arrival at the college.
Candidates are advised to provide themselves, in all cases, with
certificates of their standing in the scliool last attended and present
these certificates to the examiners. Previous good scholarship will
be considered and given due weight at entrance examinations, and
a certificate of proficiency in any subject will be accepted instead
of an examination, if granted by a college authorized to confer
degrees, or by a high-school in Maryland, or Washington, D. C.
As stated in the Calendar, the regular examinations for admission
are held at the College on the day following the annual Graduation
Day, in June, and in September on the next day preceding that for
the opening of tlie Fall Term of the institution, beginning at nine
o'clock a. m, on these days ; but candidates may be examined and
admitted at any other time in the year.
MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. <
EXPENSES AND PAYMENTS.
Tuition is free to all students, whether residents of the State of
Maryland or not. To cover the necessary expenses of the year at
College, clothing excepted, a single charge is made of one hundred
and eighty dollars ($180). This includes board, room partly fur-
nished, heat, lights, washing and the necessary text-books.
One Free Scholarship is allowed by the College to every county
in the State and to each Legislative District in the City of Baltimore.
Particulars can be obtained on application from the nearest School-
Board, or from the Registrar of the College.
Students whose homes are in the neighborhood will be allowed
to attend the college exercises daily upon payment of twenty-four
dollars ($24) per annum. They will be assigned study-rooms, be sup-
plied all necessary books, and will be on a par with other students in
connection with all college duties and exercises. (See page 16.)
The text-books furnished will become the property of the student
if he completes the college year in which they are used.
No fees or other extras will be charged by the College except for
special expenses actually incurred on behalf of the student, such
as medical attendance, for stationery or for other articles supplied?
and for loss or damage of college property, for which the student is
All Charges and fees are due and must be paid, in advance.
For convenience of patrons the payments are arranged as follows :
On the day of entrance fifty dollars ($50) of the annual charge ;
fifty dollars ($50) of the annual charge on the loth day of Novem-
ber ; on the 1st day of February forty dollars ($40), and the 1st day
of April forty dollars (40).
The low rates at which the students are received can only be
maintained by purchasing all supplies at wholesale, for cash. This is
only possible when all payments are made as stated. The Registrar is
specially charged with the duty of making prompt collections, and
annoyance to all parties will be avoided by a careful observance of all
obligations in accordance with tlie terms above stated.
The general charge for the year is made against the student when
he arrives, and no allowance or rebate will be made for any absence,
unless specially agreed to, in advance.
A small deposit for room keys is required when they are issued, and
this will be repaid upon return of the keys.

Junior and Senior years, makes his course more literary in character,
the Degree of Bachelor of Arts may be confered.
10 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.
DEPARTMENTS OF STUDY.
The Act of Congress creating the endowment of the State Agricul-
tural College was passed July 2d, 1862, and is entitled "An act grant-
ing public lands to the several States and Territories which may pro-
vide colleges for the benefit of agriculture and the mechanic arts.'^
The aims of a college thus originated are defined as follows :
"Its leading object shall be, without excluding other scientific and
classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach such branches
of learning as are related to agricultui*e and the mechanic arts, in such
manner as the Legislatures of the States may respectively prescribe, in
order to promote the liberal and practical education of the industrial
classes in the several pursuits and professions of life."
The Act of August 30th, 1890, largely increasing the endowment
of the college, limits the expenditure of the new income by these words i
"To be applied only to instruction in agriculture, the mechanic arts?
the English language and the various branches of mathematical, phy-
sical, natural and economic science, with special reference to their
applications in tiie industries of life, and to the facilities for such
In accordance with these "acts" and corresponding legislation of the
State of Maryland, the trustees of this College recognize their
obligation to provide here, first of all, for thorough instruction in
"those branches of learning -which are relftted to agriculture and
the mechanic arts." The members of the Faculty are men chosen
with special reference to their fitness for duties in an institution of the
character above indicated. The course of study has been adapted to
the "leading object" of the College, and all appliances which are
correspondingly called for, will be provided. It is not intended that
the time of students shall he occupied with ordinary labor, which
could just as well be learned or practiced at home, but that, accom-
panied by their instructors, they shall spend certain fixed portions of
the day, at suitable seasons, in the fields or stables, gardens and
orchards, observing and performing such operations as may illustrate
and supplement the teachings of the class^ room, especially in the
departments of agriculture and horticulture. Instruction is the prim
ary object, labor properly incidental thereto, will be required.
But while these technical branches are strongly emphasized, "other
scientific and classical studies" are included in the course, so as to
make a range of instruction which is broad, truly liberal, thoroughly
practical and well suited to prepare those who complete it for "the
several pursuits and professions in life."
MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. It
It is now almost universally recognized that the business of farm-
ing and gardening requires a special preparation and training, or in
other words, a special education for its successful pursuit, just as is
found necessary for other gainful occupations.
The Maryland Agricultural College aims to supply this particular
line of education. It does not expect one of its students or grad-
uates to perform the manual labor of the farm any better than if he
had never attended college. But it does enable him to understand
better the reasons for such labor, and the right time and method
of its application, — to judge of skilled and unskilled labor and
manage it economically and w^isely, — to understond the principles
of the construction and use of labor-saving appliances so as to
select and operate them with judgment, — to know the natural laws
and their modifications, which should govern the cultivation of the-
soil, the production of crops and rearing of domestic animals, — and
the many wa3^s in which modern science can be brought to the aid
of agriculture, by preserving the natural fertility of the earth, restor-
ing the productiveness of w^orn lands, and by improved methods en-
larging the returns, while lessening the area and cost of production..
This class of instruction is not only becoming a necessity to-
those who must obtain a livelihood by farming, but it* is equally
useful and profitable to the retired merchant or professional man,,
the inheritor of large estates which have been impoverished by
long continued cropping, and the lover of nature and country life,.
whatever may be his special occupation.
In the effort to realize these aims and purposes, the laboratory,
museum, library, stable, fields, garden and orchards, are used to sup-
plement work in the class and lecture room. Practical illustration
or object lessons go hand in hand with theory and the teachings of
science. The Agricultural Experiment Station, provided for this
State by the Act of Congress, approved March 2d, 1887, has been
established upon the college farm, and although a distinct branch of
the institution, it adds greatly to the facilities for agricultural
instruction. Finely equipped, with a corps of scientific workers, the
operations of the Station, in original investigations and practical tests
and experiments, afford constant object lessons for the students.
In short, tlie Maryland Agricultural College is conducted in
accordance with its name and original object, as described in its com-
prehensive charter, and the subsequent legislation, both State and.
National, which so clearly defines its special pur]30se.
12 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.
The various branches of stiidv which are embraced in this general
title, are of the first importance to those who are constantly subjected
to the laws of nature in the operations of farm and grarden. And a
knowledge of them is of daily practical value in almost all pursuits.
Among these branches are Climatology, physical geography, geology,
mineralogy, botany, zoology, (including entomology,), comparative
anatomy, chemistry and physics.
These sciences are given the prominence whicli belongs to them, in
the work of the College. Six professors, specialists in their respective
-departments, teach these branches according to the latest researches of
modern science, b}" the most practical methods and aided by elaborate
and expensive models, appliances and apparatus, all nearly new.
The unsurpassed collections in Washington, at the Smithsonian
Institution, the National Museum, and the Department of Agriculture,
all easily accessible, are of the highest value in connection with the
instruction in this department. • ■
LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE.
An accurate and refined use of tlie mother toni>:ue is the chief aim
of the course in tlie department of English. In the earlier stages there
is a persistent drill in analysis of sentences, in word-building and deri-
vation, and in the elements of style, with constant practice in expres-
sion, oral and written. The history of the language is then taken up,
with respect to its vocabulary, grammar and different periods. This
is followed by the historical and critical study of English literature.
Throughout the course the text-books used are supplemented by con-
versational lectures and parallel reading. There are also practical
exercises in writing descriptions, essays and arguments, and in debates
and public speaking.
The related subjects of logic, rhetoric, mental science, general his-
tory, constitutional history and political economy are given proper
In order to add to the breadth and variety of his work, every stu-
dent is required to study one language besides English, and is per-
mitted, witli the aid of his instructors, to choose between German,
French and Latin. The ability to read the language is the main
object in view, but attention is also given to correct pronunciation
.and ordinary conversation, in the modern languages.
MA.RYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. IS
The study of niatheinatics is pursued only so far as tlie distinc-
tive aims of this institution require, the course conforming in gen-
eral to that adopted in the most approved Agricultural Colleges.
The aim is to make the mathematical work of the most practical
value in its applications. The arithmetic and book-keeping needed in
.ordinary business are taught, and then the course leads on to meas-
urements of every description, in Mensuration and Surveying.
The field work will afford much practice in the use of chain and
compass, transit and theodolite, surveying and leveling. This prac-
tice is continued in the Senior year with application in running old
farm lines, mapping farms, dividing lands, highway surveying and
road-making, with cuts and fills, draining and water w^orks. During
this year, also, the elements of Civil Engineering are taught, with
a consideration of the strength of materials and the general princi-
ples of building and construction.
Drawing is, for the present, assigned to this department, and
extends through three years, being taught in its practical aspects^,
rather than as an artistic accomplishment.
The Act of Congress which contributed a large part of the endow-
ment of the College, was accepted by the State under conditions
which make instruction in military tactics imperative. The students
are, therefore, organized as a corps of cadets under the commandant,
who is an officer of the Regular Army, detailed for this duty by the
War Department, and is, for the time, a member of the Faculty.
They are uniformed, and every one, unless physically debarred, is
required to attend such exercises as are prescribed and is subjected to
military discipline to a certain degree.
These exercises are believed to be decidedly beneficial, and the
tactical instruction is thoroughly given. The drills, which occupy
three or four hours a week, furnish excellent physical culture,,
insuring regular and healthful exercise at all seasons, and out of doors
whenever possible. Xeatness in dress, graceful carriage of the body
and dignilied bearing, are secured by the drill, and habits are acquired
of prompt obedience and self-control and the power to command.
While this department is administered to honestly meet the
requirements of law and to benefit the individual and the College, it
is not permitted to interfere with other educational interests and
duties, or encroach upon reasonable periods of recreation.
1L4 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.
DISCIPLINE AND REGULATIONS.
It is expected tliat all students attending this College will have
reached an age when their habits are so fixed and their characters so
matured as to cause them to appreciate the value of their time and the
•opportunities afforded at this institution. Without multiplying rules
and regulations, thej will, from the day of entrance, be placed upon
their honor to contribute to the general good order and studiousness
of the College, to promptly and cheerfully obey all instructions they
may receive from its officers, pay proper regard to the care of its
iproperty, refrain from all acts calculated to disturb the comfort and
work of their fellow-students, and in personal habits, conversation and
conduct, at all times and places, to act as gentlemen.
In general, exemplary deportment, attention to duties, and the
maintenance of good scholastic standing, will be required of all.
Should there be those who cannot be allowed full privileges because
of immaturity and thoughtlessness, rather than deliberate misconduct
or intentional neglect, they will be assigned quarters in a special part
of the building and placed more or less completely under military
discipline, as circumstance may require.
Such regulations as may be necessary will be promulgated from
"time to time, so as to be fulh'^ understood, and they must be observed
and complied with by all.
Discipline will be administered, as a rule, in a progressive manner,
by admonition, formal warning, notice to parents or guardians, and
strict probation, but at any time when such action is in the interest of
the individual or the College, any student may be sent home without
previous notice, or may, for cause, be suspended, dismissed or sum-
The fact of entering upon duty at the College, is to be understood
by all as an assent to these regulations on the part of the student and
liis parents, and as a pledge by the former to acknowledge and con-
form to the same.
Members of the Senior and Junior classes, and all students who
have attended the College for one year or more, will be required to
perform such duties as may be assigned them as officers, non-com-
missioned or guards, in connection with the military exercises or tlie
police and discipline of the College.
MARYLAND AGKICULTUKAL COLLEO?:. 15
Every student is required to provide himself with the full
uniform adopted for this department, before the close of the term in
which he enters the college, and thereafter to keep the same in
order and wear it upon all drills and stated railitarj^ exercises.
The uniform is a neat suit of cadet gray, suitable for all occasions,
and, at the reasonable prices which the institution is able to obtain,
by contract, it forms an extremely economical dress. It consists of a
dress coat, pair of pants, cap and gloves, costing just about twenty
<iollars ($20). Those wlio desire can obtain a fatigue suit, in addition,
for about ten dollars ($10), but this is not required. To insure
uniformity in quality and pattern and maintain low rates, the military
suits must be purchased from the contractor with the College and paid
for in cash, on delivery. No article of uniform dress will be per-
mitted to be worn, unless obtained under the supervision of the col-
lege oiRcers, and from the authorized contractor for the time being,
FURNITURE, BEDDING, Sue.
Each bed room is furnished with two single beds and mattresses
two clothes-presses, a table and a washstand. The student must
furnish chairs, looking-glass, chamber-ware, pillow and all other
articles of bedding ; also a study lamp, a broom, shoe-brush, towels,
table-napkins, clothes-bag and proper toilet articles. Clothing,
towels, bedding, itc, should be marked with the owner's name.
Such of the articles named as can be conveniently brought from
home should reach the College on the day the student enters. Some
of the heavier articles, like chairs and chamber-ware, can be obtained
at or near the College, at reasonable prices, for cash.
A safe will be provided at the office of the Registrar, in which
students may deposit money and small articles of value, and have
access to them at stated times. Care will be exercised to protect the
property of all, but the College will be in no case responsible for any
losses of money or valuables by students while at the institution.
16 MARYLAND AGRICULTUKAL COLLEGE.
Students who do not board at the College, must be present at the
opening exercises of the day and must remain until sunset, daily,
except Sunday, unless specially excused by the College authorities.
Such students will be received upon no other conditions.
All students are required to attend the daily morning prayers
and public worship on Sunday in the College Chapel. Arrangements
will be made for the Sunday services to be conducted by clergymen of
different denominations. Upon request of parents, students will be
permitted to attend religious services elsewhere in the neighborhood,
at hours not conflicting with exercises at the College.
JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY.
The officers of the Jolins Hopkins University authorize the
announcement, that the diploma of this College will be accepted in
lieu of the usual examinations, for admission to the advanced courses
of scientific study at the University, which naturally follow the work
at this institution.
A prize of ten dollars ($10), in useful books, is offered by the
President of the Faculty, to be awarded to that member of the
Senior class who sustains throughout the year, including examinations,,
the best record in the department of agricultural studies.
Other prizes are being arranged and will be duly announced.
Note. — As the law now requires an Annual Report to be made by the College,
which embraces the information usually given in the catalogue, the latter is
omitted and this Announcement issued instead. Any further information regard-
ing the College can be obtained upon application ; the Annual Report and the
Publications of the Experiment Station, will be mailed to all who ask for them.
