MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. 

,...*■-»■ . - 

BISTORT 

An act to establish and endow an agricultural college in the 
State of Maryland was passed by the legislature of the State in 
1856 (see Laws of Maryland 1856, Chapter 97). At that time no 
other institution of a similar character existed in the United 
States. Its express purpose was defined to be, "To instruct the 
youthful student in those arts and sciences indispensable to suc- 
cessful agricultural pursuit." Under the charter thus granted to 
a party of public-spirited private individuals, the original College 
building was erected, and its doors were opened to students in 
the fall of 1859. 

For three years it was conducted as a private institution, but 
in 1862, the Congress of the United States, recognizing the valu- 
able work in the cause of practical education which such colleges 
could achieve for the country, passed the "Land Grant Act." 
This Act granted each State and Territory which should claim 
its benefit a proportionate amount of unclaimed Western lands, 
in place of scrip, the proceeds from the sale of which should 
apply under certain conditions to the establishment and main- 
tenance of at least one college in which the "leading object" 
should be, "without excluding other scientific and classical 
studies, and including military tactics, to teach such branches of 
learning as are related to agriculture and the mechanic arts, in 
such manner as the legislatures of the States" might "respectively 
prescribe, in order to promote the liberal and practical education 
of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and professions of 
life." This grant having been formally accepted by the General 
Assembly of Maryland, and the Maryland Agricultural College 
being named as the beneficiary of the gfrant, the College thus 
became, in part, at least, a State institution, and such it is at the 
present time. 

In 1892 the Federal Government passed a second act for the 
benefit of the agricultural and mechanical colleges. By the act of 
Congress of that year an annual appropriation of $15,000, to be 



lO 

increased by $i,ooo each year until the sum of $25,000 should be 
reached, was granted .each State, to be applied to the further 
equipment and support of these colleges. The primary object of 
this legislation was the development of the departments of agri- 
culture and the mechanic arts, and the branches kindred thereto. 
Maryland, in order to comply with the terms of the Act of Con- 
gress, divided this fund between the State Agricultural College 
and a somewhat similar institution for the education of colored 
students located at Princess Anne, on the Eastern Shore of 
Maryland, 

In 1887 the Federal Congress passed an important act in aid of 
the agricultural interests, appropriating $15,000 a year in each 
state and territory, to be increased by $5,000 each yea.v until the 
agricultural experiment stations. The Maryland Station was lo- 
cated on the College farm, and was made a department of the 
College. In 1892 the Board of Trustees so far separated it from 
the College as to put it under a special Director, who is imme- 
diately responsible to the Board. The function of the Experiment 
Station is the investigation of those agricultural problems of 
most interest and concern to the farmers of the State, and the 
publication and dissemination of the results of such experiments 
in the form of bulletins, for the information and guidance of 
those interested in agriculture. Since the organization of the 
Experiment Station, its influence has steadily increased, and its 
sphere of usefulness has constantly widened, until it is now a 
well recognized factor in the agricultural development of Mary- 
land. 

In 1906 Congress passed the Adams Act, a m.easiire of further 
assistance for the experiment stations of the several States. By 
this act there is granted a gradual increasing appropriation for 
the experimental work of the stations, until such grant shall 
equal $15,000 per annum. 

On March 4, 1907, the Nelson Bill became a law, whereby 
$5,000 was appropriated to aid the agricultural college in each 
state and territory, to be increased by $5,000 each year until the 
sum of $25,000 should be reached. This Act was in the nature

of an amendment to the Morrill Act of 1892, and will materially 
add to the efficiency of the latter. 

During recent years the College has made a steady growth. 
This fact is evidenced by the increased number of students avail- 
ing themselves of its facilities; by the erection of many new 
buildings — the library and gymnasium buildings, the chemical 
laboratory, Morrill Hall, the sanatarium, the administration 
building and barracks, and the new engineering building; as 
well as by the establishment of the Dicpartment of Farmers' 
Institutes and the State Departments of Horticulture, Entomol- 
ogy and Vegetable Pathology, and Ch,emistry (Fertilizer and 
Feed Control), Under such favorable auspices the institution 
has continued to grow, and has become the most important 
factor in the agricultural and industrial development of the State. 

The State Bureau of Forestry, recently created, cooperates 
with the College, the Director being, by the terms of his appoint- 
ment, Lecturer on Forestry at the Agricultural College. 



L.OCATIOW AND DESCRIPTION 

The Maryland Agricultural College is located in Prince George 
County, Maryland, on the line of the Washington Branch of the 
B. & O. R. R., eight miles from Washington, and thirty-two miles 
from Baltimore. At least nine trains a day from each city stop at 
College Station, thus making the place easily accessible from all 
parts of the State. Hyattsville is the telegraph station. Telephone 
connection is made with the Chesapeake and Potomac lines. 

The College grounds front on the Baltimore and Washington 
turnpike. The suburban town of Hyattsville is two and one- 
half miles to the south, and Laurel, the largest town in the 
county, is thirteen miles to the north on the same road. Connec- 
tion with these towns and with Washington may be had by 
steam and electric railway. The site of the College is particularly 
beautiful. The buildings occupy the crest of a commanding hill, 
covered with forest trees, and overlooking the entire surround- 
ing country. In front, extending to the turnpike, is a broad, 



12 - ._■ r ■ . -.:.--■■■ 

rolling campus, the drill ground and athletic field of the students. 
In the rear are the farm buildings and barn. A quarter of a mile 
to the northeast are the buildings of the Experiment Station. 
The College farm contains about three hundred acres, and is de- 
voted to fields, gardens, orchards, vineyard, poultry yards, etc., 
used for experimental purposes, and demonstration work in 
agriculture and horticulture. ' ;-..-. 

The general appearance of the College grounds is exceedingly 
attractive. They are tastefully laid off in lawns and terraces, with 
ornamental shrubbery and flower beds, and the view from the 
grove and campus cannot be surpassed. 

The location of the College is healthful; the sanitary condi- 
tions are excellent. No better proof of this can be given than 
that there has been practically no serious cases of illness among 
the students for twelve years.

COL.I.EGE: BUILDINGS ♦ 

The original barracks, erected in 1859, is a five-story brick 
building, containing the student quarters and the Domestic De- 
partment. The dormitories are large, well ventilated and pro- 
vided with fire escapes, bath and water rooms. All the buildings 
are lighted by gas and electricity and heated by steam from the 
central plant on the College grounds. ; - 

In 1894 the building used as the gymnasium and library was 
erected. The gymnasium, on the ground floor, is well furnished 
with modern athletic appliances. The library and reading room 
is on the second floor, and is large, well-lighted and convenient 
for the purpose. 

In the fall of 1909 the Departm^ents of Civil, Electrical and 
Mechanical Engineering and the department of Physics will be 
located in the two story brick building erected in 1896, th,e brick 
annex erected in 1904, and the brick addition now in course of 
construction. This latter, which consists of a main building four 
stories in height and a wing three stories in height, is so arrang- 
ed as to form with the buildings previously erected, a concrete 
whole. In this group of buildings will be found laboratories of 



13 

various kinds, wood and machine shops, a forge room and foun- 
dry, drawing rooms, blue print rooms, instrument rooms, lecture 
rooms, offices, a library room, lavatories, etc. The equipment will 
be modern in every respect and the facilities for work in the 
above named departments will be greatly increased. 

The chemical building was completed in 1S97, and is now 
thoroughly equipped. It contains several lecture rooms and labo- 
ratories for practical work and the analysis of fertilizers and 
feeding material for domestic animals. This work is assigned by 
an Act of the General Assembly to the Professor of Chemistry 
at this College, who is thus the State Chemist. 

Another addition to the group of College buildings is Morrill 
Hall erected in 1898. This building provides accommoda- 
tions for the Departments of Agriculture, Hbrticulture, Ento- 
mology, Vegetable Pathology and Veterinary Science. A green- 
house for work in entomology and vegetable pathology was 
erected in 1904. 

The College Sanitarium, completed in 1901, has proved a most 
efficient means of isolating, infectious diseases which might other- 
wise have become epidemic, thus seriously embarrassing Col- 
lege work. It contains ample room for all emergencies, and 
is furnished with modern hospital facilities. An experienced 
nurse is in constant attendance, and the College surgeon is 
present every day at a fixed hour to prescribe for any cadet 
requiring his services. 

Appreciating the needs of the institution, the State Legisla- 
ture has from time to time appropriated funds wherewith build- 
ings could be erected or renovated and equipment secured. 

Among recent improvements are the dormitories, accommodat- 
ing twice the number of students, an auditorium and offices in 
the Administration Building, added in 1904; a complete renova- 
tion of the original College barracks; a modern steam heating 
plant; gas and electric lighting; lavatories; steam laundry; 
forced ventilation, etc., all of which furnish quarters and class- 
rooms with unusually good sanitary arrangements. 



H 

GKKBRAIi AIM AND PURPOSE: 

The Agricultural College is the State school of science and 
technology. While seeking, first of all, to perform the functions 
of an agricultural college, its sphere of work has been widened 
to embrace all the sciences akin to agriculture, and all the arts 
related to mechanical training. To these sp.ecial and prominent 
lines of work have been added such branches of study as are 
necessary for a liberal education, for the development of the in- 
telligent citizen and the making of general culture. The purpose 
of this college is to give to young m,en anxious to prepare them- 
selves for the active duties of life such training in the sciences 
or in the mechanical workshop as will enable them to take their 
places in the industrial world well prepared for the fierce compe- 
tition of the day. 

Recognizing that such an education, in order to be of practical 
advantage to many, mxust be offered at a cost within the means 
of all, the expenses for the year to the student have been reduced 
to the point where his college dues are not in excess of his ordi- 
nary daily expenses. It is to be remembered that the College is 
a State institution, in part supported by the State, in part by the 
Federal Government, through its several endowment Acts, and 
that it is in no sense a money-making institution, but simply a 
m.edium of disbursement by the Government to those classes 
upon whom the safety and prosperity of the State so largely de- 
pend. 

While the College provides, as will hereinafter be explained, 
several distinct courses of instruction, looking to the special 
training of the student in agriculture, engineering and the 
sciences, the fact is clearly kept in view that a sound foundation 
must be laid for each and every course. Successful specialization 
is only possible after the student has prepared for it by a 
thorough training in the essentials. All education must be nar- 
row and one-sided which does not provide for the general culture 
of the student, and which does not look first to the natural and 
normal development of the individual. The general working plan 
of the College may b,e thus described: 



15 

It begins with the student in his first, or Freshman, year with 
^ systematic and carefully adjusted scheme of work, differing 
but little in the several courses, and looking to his general devel- 
opment in mental strength, range of information and power of 
expression and thought. At the beginning of his second, or 
Sophomore, year the differentiation may be said to begin along 
those lines in which he shows most natural aptitude. This grad- 
ual specialization continues during his third, or Junior, year, 
until in his last, or Senior, year, his work consists chiefly of a 
few closely connected topics, in which he is thus able thorough- 
ly to prepare himself. With the present equipment of the labo- 
ratories and work-shops a student is able to become so proficient 
in his chosen line of work that when he leaves the College a suc- 
cessful career is open to him if he chooses to avail himself of it. 

The Agricultural College is, legitimately, the crowning point 
of the public school system of Maryland. Its aim is to provide a 
higher education for the graduates of the county schools. To this 
end its curriculum is adjusted to meet the preparation of such 
students. It is this class of young men that the College is es- 
pecially desirous of reaching. Experience has shown that our 
most satisfactory students come as graduates from the county 
schools, and no efforts will be spared to make the transition from 
the high school or grammar school to the College a possible one 
for all those actuated by an earnest desire to complete their 
education.

The Agricultural Department offers three courses : 

I, A four-year course leading to the degree of B. S. 
II. A two-year course, for proficiency in which a certificate 
is awarded. 

III. A ten-week winter course, for which credit is given to- 
ward the two-year or four-year course. 

Education is transforming the farms into veritable workshops, 
whose products, in the aggregate, more than equal those of any 
other industry of the country, and under the influence of more 
general intelligence are capable of indefinite extension. In this 
work there is need of the trained investigator to discover the 
natural laws which underlie the phenomena of plant and animal 
life, and there is also need of educated farmers with skill and in- 
telligence to receive these principles and apply them in practical 
farming. - 

These courses are so arranged as to furnish a good foundation 
upon which the student may build a successful career as a farmer, 
or develop into a specialist along some line pertaining to the 
farming industry. The studies to be pursued are recognized as 
being necessary to fully equip the student for the highest order 
of work, and for the greatest usefulness. 

The College farm consists of two hundred and sixty-five acres 
of land, which is operated by the Maryland Experiment Station. 
Students of the agricultural course are made acquainted with the 
work of the Station from time to time, and because of the Col- 
lege and Station's close association an excellent opportunity is 



i8 

afforded the student to study the cultivation and growing of 
crops, the application of manures and fertilizers, the care of 
stock, the selection of seed from gprowing crops, the judging of 
the several classes of animals, and all the work of the practical 
farmer. 

DIVISION OF AGROirOMT 

The division of Agronomy takes up the agricultural work per- 
taining to the field and its crops. A number of courses are offer- 
ed. These treat of farm crops, their classification, adaptation to 
soil and climate and methods of culture; solis, their properties, 
and how to care for them and make them more productive and 
fertile by crop rotation, and by the application of manures and 
fertilizers ; farm management, how to make the farm a source of 
pleasure and profit by employing economic business principles 
and practices ; farm machinery, the kind of tools to use for pre- 
paring the land, cultivating and harvesting the crops. A new 
soil laboratory has been added to this department. In this labora- 
tory the student has an excellent opportunity to study the physi- 
cal properties of the different kinds of soil. A separate desk and 
ample apparatus is provided each student to perform icxperiments 
for himself. 

COURSES OFFERED. 

1. Farm Crops. In this course the production of farm crops 
is considered in detail as to history, uses and requirements, local 
adaptations, varieties, fertilization, cultivation and harvesting, A 
special feature is the study of crop improvement by breeding and 
selection. Very much of this work is of a practical nature in the 
laboratory or on the farm. 

The texts used are Morrow and Hunt's "Soils and Crops," 
Shaw's "The Cereals In America," Shamel's "Corn Judging.'*' 

Freshman Year, Third Term ; 6 practical periods per week. 
Sophomore Year, Third Term ; two theoretical and four practical 
periods per week. 

2. Soils. The study of the physical and chemical conditions 
of the soil in their relation to profitable agriculture. The soil is 



19 

the basis of all agriculture, and a knowledge of its properties and 
functions cannot be too highly emphasized. The study of this 
important subject is conducted by means of lectures, text-books, 
laboratory and field work. No State in the Union possesses a 
greater variety of soils than Maryland, and great attention is paid 
to the study of soil types in their relation to profitable agricul- 
ture. 

A well equipped soil laboratory and the wide variety of soils 
found on the College farm offer exceptional advantages in the 
theoretical and practical study of this important subject. 

The text-book used is "The Soil," by King, 

Sophomore Year, First Term; 2 theoretical and 2 practical 
periods per week; Second Term; 2 theoretical and 4 practical 
periods per week. 

3. Farm Drainage. Practical work in open ditching and 
under drains is provided for the students on the Experiment 
Station farm. Special attention is given to the principles and 
practice of tile drainage. 

The text-book used in this course is Waring's "Drainage for 
Profit and Health. 

Sophomore Year, Third Term; 2 theoretical and 4 practical 
periods per week. 

4. Plant Production. This course is intended for those 
students only who are specializing in agronomy. It consists of 
field and laboratory work in the study of the handling of fall 
sown and fall harvested crops. Great attention is given in this 
course to a careful note-taking and study of the results obtained 
in breeding work in corn and other fall maturing crops on the 
Experiment Station farm. 

Senior Year, First Term ; 3 theoretical and 4 practical periods 
per week. 

5- Fertilizers, Of vital interest to the eastern and southern 
farmer of the present day, is the fertilizer question. Between it 
and the profit and loss account is a very close connection, and fre- 
quently a lack of knowledge of the subject entails upon the 



20 



farmer both the loss of money paid and of the possible increase 
of the crop. In this course the subject is developed logically from 
the needs of the plant and the efficiency of the soil to the selecting 
of the proper plant foods for each crop under varying conditions 
of soil and climate. Special attention is given to the home mix- 
ing of fertilizers.

half of the second term is devoted to the geology of Maryland, 
especially as affecting the character of the soils, mineral wealth 
and other economic conditions of th,e State. Instruction is given 
by means of text-book work, lectures and field excursions. 

Shaler's "First Book in Geology," is used as a text-book. The 
reports of the Maryland Geological Survey are used for refer- 
ence. '• ■ •*• • • ■ ^ ■ -- ■•■ '■- :. ■

DIVISION OF AIVIMAI^ HUSBANDRY 

• • • . - f ». ■ . ' * 

The division of Animal Husbandry stands for all lines of work 
which pertain to the judging, selecting, breeding, feeding, de- 
velopment, care and management of the various breeds and 
classes of domesticated animals. Good herds of stock are being 
established at the Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station 
which are of use to the student in his studies. In addition to the 
supply of stock on the farm the proximity of the College to 
Washington, Baltimore and the Government Quarantine Sta- 
tion, near Baltimore, makes it possible for the student to get 
excellent material for study. The Heurich dairy farm, close by, 
furnishes an excellent example in dairy farming. It is quite evi- 
dent that there is but one way to make a young man a proficient 
judge of livestock, and that is by training the eye. In all of the 
lecture and laboratory work outlined in the courses the work is 
demonstrated with living specimens. 

New dairy barns are erected at the Experiment Station. These 
are models of sanitation. A class-room for judging live stock is 
being planned for occupancy in the near future. 

A growing library of herd-books is available to the student of 
pedigrees. These books give a fund of information concerning 
heredity, fecundity, and other breed characteristics. 

COURSES OFFERED.

20. Breeds and Scoring. This course is devoted to the de- 
tailed study of the breeds of live stock. The practical work com- 
mences with a study of the animal form by the use of the score- 
card. Especial attention is givien to the relation of form to func- 
tion. First, the productive types are firmly fixed in the student's 



mind; then he takes up more particularly breed characteristics. 
Judging occupies two double periods two afternoons per week.

DEPARTMENT OF BOTANY AND VEGETABLE 
>.^-^ U'-- PATHOLOGY. 

J. B. S. NORTON^ PROFESSOR. 
ALVAH J. NORMAN, INSTRUCTOR. 

The courses in Botany are intended to give such knowledge 
of the vegetable kingdom as is a proper element in general cul- 
ture ; to train the student mind in observation, comparison, gen- 
eralization, and other mental processes essential to true scientific 
methods in any work, and to furnish a basis for practical studies 
directly connected with agriculture ; for since plants are the sub- 
jects dealt with in the field and garden, the study of plant life 
must be one of the fundamental sciences upon which such work 
is based. In addition to the courses in pure botany, others of 
special economic trend are given. These are especially for stu- 
dents in the Agricultural and Horticultural courses, and take up 
such botanical studies of cultivated plants, plant diseases, etc., 
as may be useful in practical life to the professional farmer or 
gardener. . . f ' 

The equipment and means for illustration and demonstration, 
consist of a reference library containing the principal botanical 
works needed by students, charts and maps, compound and dis- 
secting microscopes, preserved specimens for illustration, a rep- 
resentative collection of Maryland plants ; microtome and other 
instruments, reagents and apparatus for histological work and 
physiological experiments; a culture room, sterilizers, incuba- 
tors and other facilities for the study of plant diseases. 

Advanced students have opportunity to observe the work be- 
ing done in the laboratory of Vegetable Pathology and green- 
house of the State Horticultural Department, and, if competent, 
to assist in the same. Special attention is given to students wlio 
wish practice in the treatment of plant diseases, as it is the 
desire of the Department to encourage young men to engage in 
this work as a business, 

60. General Principles. An elementary course in the gen- 
eral principles of anatomy, morphology and physiology of the

,«•. ' ■*■ 

higher plants. The structure and types of seed, root, stem, 
leaves, flower and fruit are studied in the laboratory, with a brief 
consideration of the functions of the different plant organs, a 
more complete course in plant physiology (62) being given 
later. 

Also field work, with the manual on the native flora, designed 
to give a knowledge of the names of the common Maryland plants 
and their position in the classification of the vegetable kingdom. 
The ecology of the plants examined in the field is also taken up, 
considering their relation to soils, water supply, light and other 
factors in their environment, cross pollination, dissemination of 
of seeds, plant societies, etc. Each student makes a collection of 
at least fifty plants from some part of the State. 

Bergen and Davis' "Principles of Botany" is the principal text- 
book used.

DEPARTMENT OP CHEMISTRY. 

DR. H. fl. MCDONNELL, PROFESSOR AND STATE CHEMIST. 
I. v. STONE, INSTRUCTOR. 
FRANK COLE, R. B. DEEMER, ASSISTANTS IN STATE WORK. 

This department is charged with two distinct classes of work, 
(i) The State fertilizer and food inspection, and (2) the in- 
struction of students. The State work necessitates the publica- 
tion of the "Quarterly" bulletin, which is usually made up of 
the results of the analyses of fertilizers or feeding stuffs, and is 
sent free of charge to all Maryland farmers who apply. Students 
do no part of the State work, the assistants being invariably 
college graduates. However, this work serves as a valuable 
object lesson to the advanced students. 



29 

The Chemical Laboratory Building is devoted entirely to 
chemistry. It is new and, not including basement, is two stories 
high. On the first floor are the laboratories for the State, ferti- 
lizer and food control work, office, lecture room and balance 
room. On the second floor are three laboratories for the use of 
students — one for each class — a student's balance room with 
first-class chemical and assay balances and a supply room. The 
assay furnaces are in the basement. Each student is provided 
with a working desk, lockers, reagents and apparatus. Additional 
apparatus and materials are provided from the supply room, as 
needed. 

The department is provided with a small, but well-selected, 
library of standard reference books on Chemistry, to which ad- 
ditions are made from time to time. 

Instruction in Chemistry is begun with the Sophomore year, 
four hours per week being devoted to lectures and recitations, 
and three to four hours to practical work in the laboratory by 
the student, under the supervision of the instructor. In this 
way he comes in direct contact with the substances studied, 
having at hand ample facilities for learning their properties. 
Special attention is given to the elements and compounds of 
practical and economic importance, such as the air, water and 
soil, the elements entering into the composition of plants and 
animals, the useful metals, etc. The course in the Sophomore 
year is intended to give the student that practical and theoreti- 
cal knowledge of elementary chemistry, which is essential in the 
education of every man, no matter what his vocation. It also 
serves as a foundation for advanced work in Chemistry, if such 
a course is chosen. ... 

Advanced work in chemistry begins with the Junior year, if 
the course in chemistry is selected, and the larger part of the 
student's time is devoted to some branch of theoretical or prac- 
ical chemistry during the rest of his course, as outlined else- 
where. 

The object of the full course in chemistry is to prepare the 
graduate for positions in agricultural colleges, experiment sta- 
tions, the United States Department of Agriculture, or in vari- 



30 

ous industries that required the services of trained chemists. 
The demand for our graduates for such positions is far in excess 
of the supply.

BliKCTRICAI^ ENGINBBRING 

For the session of 1909-1910, the Electrical Engineering 
course is offered to the members of the Freshman, Sophomore 
and Junior Classes. The work of the course is so arranged as 
to give the student a thorough understanding of the fundamental 
principles of the various branches of electrical engineering, 
and at the same time to teach him to apply these principles to 
the practical problems with which the engineer has to deal. 
This purpose is carried out by means of lectures and recitations 



37 

in the class-room, supplemented by practical work in the labora- 
tories and drawing room. 

Equipment. At the beginning of the session of 1909-1910, 
the Electrical Engineering Laboratories will be located in the 
basement and first floor of the east wing of the new Engineer- 
ing building. The rooms on the first floor will be used for lec- 
tures, recitations, and experimental demonstrations by the in- 
structor; and the basement will contain the dynamo room and 
the electrical engineering testing room. 

The electrical engineering testing room will be fitted up with 
such appliances as are used to the best advantage in engineer- 
ing practice. Special effort has been made to purchase only the 
best instruments, as the use of poorer grades influences the stu- 
dent unfavorably. With poor instruments he cannot be taught 
to do satisfactory work, and he becomes careless in the hand- 
ling of them. 

Among other things the following apparatus has already been 
purchased for the testing laboratory: 

A Queen & Co. standard photometer, for measuring the dis- 
tribution of light from incandescent lamps, with all the neces- 
sary instruments and adjustments, including a Lummer-Brod- 
hun photometer screen and carriage, and a universal rotating 
socket for the test lamp ; a number of direct current and alter- 
nating current voltmeters ranging from o.oooi to 150 volts; am- 
meters ranging from 0.0004 to 50 amperes; a Siemens' electro- 
d3mamometer of 60 amperes capacity; and an integrating watt- 
meter. The above instruments are made by "Weston and Queen 
& Co. In addition there are D'Arsonval galvanometers, both bal- 
listic and light movement, furnished with lamp scales ; standard 
resistance boxes and bridges, including a very accurate decade 
resistance box ; double and single contact keys and commutating 
keys. 

The arc lamps which have been purchased, include both direct 
current and alternating current multiple arcs and a luminous arc 
lamp with an inverted concentric diffuser. • ■ " 

• The laboratory will be so wired that connection ma}'^ be made 



readily with any part of the College lighting plant and with any 
of the apparatus in the dynamo room. 

The dynamo room will contain the following: — A 10 kilowatt 
General Electric rotary converter of the latest type with speed 
limit and end play devices, to be nsed as a synchronous motor 
and as an alternating current generator for testing purposes; a 
5 horse-pOAver General Electric commutating pole motor with 
controller for varying speeds ; and a Westinghouse 5 horse-power 
compound direct current motor. These motors are to be lised 
both as motors and generators. 

A blue Vermont marble panel will be used to mount the neces- 
sary circuit-breaker, rheostats, switches, etc., to control the ro- 
tary converter as well as the various circuits in the dynamo room 
and testing laboratory. Wire and water rheostats will be ar- 
ranged for load and regulation. Incandescent lamp-boards will 
be so arranged that they may receive, at the proper voltage, 
from 0.04 to 20 amperes current. In addition to the special elec- 
trical engineering equipment, the College lighting plant will be 
used for illustrative and experimental purposes. This plant con- 
tains, together with other apparatus useful in teaching electrical 
engineering, two Bullock generators of 40 kilowatts total capa- 
city, and a switch-board equipped with a number of Weston am- 
meters, voltmeters, and circuit-breakers, and various types of 
rheostats. 

An 8-inch Waltham bench lathe, with all the necessary at- 
tachments, is to be installed in the dynamo room for the use of 
students in practical thesis work, and for making small articles, 
such as binding posts, connectors, etc., for use in the labora- 
tories. 

Such other apparatus as is necessary for carrying on the work 
with alternating and direct current, will be purchased as the 
funds permit. 

COURSES OFFERED. 

The subjects outlined constitute the work in Electrical En- 
gineering through the Junior Year.

week. 

121. Electro-Magnetism and the Construction of Dynamos. 
Beginning with the Junior Year and extending throughout the 
course, the principles involved in the construction and operation 
of both direct and alternating current dynamos and motors are 
taught. In teaching this subject, especial care is exercised that 
the mathematical and graphical developments shall be concise 
and logical. The direct current machine is first examined, and 
this results in a discussion of the different forms of armature, 
their windings, cores, commutators, etc. : the various fields ; the 
methods of arranging the windings for different purposes ; the 
shape and material of the magnetic circuits : the bearings, shafts, 
and bed-plates, and the methods of insulation ; a full description 
of the materials of construction ; the selection of types suited to 
the performance of specific duties; and the proper method for 
installing and operating. The characteristic curves and efficien- 
cies of the different types are also illustrated at some length.

DEPARTMENT OF ENiGLISH AND CIVICS. 

F. B. BOMBERGER, PROFESSOR. 
CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

This department, as its name implies, covers the work of two 
distinct cotirses of instruction. It seeks to prepare the student 
by systematic training in the history, structure and use of the 
English language, for the highest development of his mer.tal 
powers and for the complex duties and relations of life: and, 
further, to fit him for the active and intelligent exercise of his 
rights and duties as a man and citizen. 

The course in English, of a necessity, lies at the base of all 
other courses of instruction. Clear and comprehensive knov.-i- 
edge of his mother tongue is absolutely necessary to the student 
in pursuing any line of college work. Nor is this all ; for aside 
from the practical value of the English instruction as an aid to 
other branches of study, and as a preparation for business and 
profession, it is to his training in this department, in connection 
v/ith his study of history and the classics and modern languages, 
that the student must look for the acquiring of that general cul- 
ture that has always been the distinguishing mark of the liber- 
ally educated man. The English work, which is common to all 
courses, consists of the study of the structure of the English 
language, English and American literature, theoretical and prac- 
tical rhetoric, logic, psychology, critical reading and analysis. 



42 

and constant exercise in expression, composition and theme 
writing. 

The course in civics is especially designed to prepare young 
men for the active duties of citizenship. The first year is de- 
voted to the study of general history, follov/ed by the principles 
of civil government, constitutional history, political econoni)'-, 
with special reference to current, social and industrial prob- 
lems, and, finally, lectures on the elements of business law.

DEPARTMENT OF ENTOMOLOGY AND ZOOLOGY. 

T. B. SYMONS, PROFESSOR. 
L. M. PEAIRS, INSTRUCTOR. 

Instruction is given in this depatment with a view of giving 
the student, first, a general knowledge of invertebrate and ver- 
tebrate zoology, which is necessary as a foundation science for 
an agricultural education. Second, to fit the student in elemen- 
tary and advanced entomology, both economic and systematic, 
in order that he may pursue this specialty after graduation. A 
course in economic entomology and zoology is given to provide 
those students who are specializing in any of the allied agricul- 
tural sciences with that information which is necessary to their 
ideal development. 

Students wishing to take advanced work in invertebrate 
zoology are advised to select some subject in entomology. As 
the State and Experiment Station entomological work is con- 
ducted through this department, there are special advantages for 
students in applied entomology.

DEPAIiTMENT OF LANGUAGES. " 

THOMAS H. SPENCE, PROFESSOR. 

The Department of Languages embraces the study of three 
branches : Latin, French and German, All students are required 
to take the courses in German. Students may elect to take Latin 
in the Freshman year in place of History. 

The course of study in Latin is given with two ends m view — 
first, to train the mind into accurate and close methods of rea- 
soning ; second, the give the student a more thorcrtigh and com- 
prehensive knowledge of his own language than he could othcp- 



wise acquire. Especial attention is paid to Latin forms an.l 
terminations and to the derivation of English words from Latin 
roots. 

So large a proportion of modern scientific literature is in Gei 
man and French that a reading knowledge of these languages 
has become almost essential to the student pursuing advanced 
courses in the various spheres of scientific research. Instruction 
in these branches is given, therefore, to enable the student to 
* translate intelligently the works of French and German masters 
in the domain of science, for, frequently there are no English 
versions of their works. As the student becomes more familiar 
with foreign scientific terms and construction, he is required to 
translate treatises bearing upon the special line of work which 
he may be pursuing. The study of French is oflfered as an option 
in the Senior Year. 

1.ATIN COVRSEJS 

260. Grammar and Composition. For students of the Fresh- 
man class who elect Latin in place of History.

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS. 

R. W. SILVESTER, PROFESSOR. 
HENRY T. HARRISON, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

Mathematics is the basis upon which scientific information 
rests. A knowledge of the study is necessary, as much from the 
utilitarian point of view as from the mental training its acquisi- 
tion gives. Its importance as a factor in our College course 
takes its rise from the former consideration. All instruction in 
this work is with a view to the equipping of students for the - 
more practical work soon to follow. 

The class work in Mathematics in the several courses con- 
sists of arithmetic, bookkeeping, algebra, geometry (plane and 
solid), trigonometry, descriptive geometry, differential and in- 
tegral calculus, in their application to mechanics, engineering, • 
physics and surveying. 



54 

In the applied mathematics, bookkeeping is taught every stu- 
dent. No matter what vocation a man intends to follow, a knowl- 
edge of business forms and methods of systematic accounts is a 
requisite to success. To be able to use an ordinary compass or 
transit, for the purpose of laying out, dividing and calculating 
the area of land, or of running outlines and leveling for the pur-

DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENiGINEERING. 

HARRY GWINNER, PROFESSOR. 

HOWARD L. CRISP, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

FREDERICK F. MASON, INSTRUCTOR. 

This department offers a four-year course in Mechanical En- 
gineering leading to the degree of B. S, in Mechanical Engineer- 
ing. It prepares young men to design and construct machinery, 
to superintend engineering establishments, to become superin- 
tendents of construction and to teach mechanical engineering 
and manual training. 

The record of its graduates shows that the course is equipping 
such for immediate usefulness in the technical field. 

Instruction is given by means of lectures and recitations, ac- 
companied by a large amount of practice in the drafting rooms, 
shops and experimental laboratory. 

The program of the department is arranged to embody the 
two-fold belief that a thorough fundamental training is best se- 
cured by a study of the practical application of the principles 
involved, as well as of the principles. 

Equipment. The Mechanical Engineering Laboratories are 
situated in the Engineering Building; which contains the wood- 
working and machine shops, drafting and lecture rooms. The 
foundry and blacksmith shops as well the power plant, are in 
annex buildings. 

The wood-working shop contains accommodations for 14 stu- 
dents in bench work and wood turning. The power machinery 
in this shop is a band and circular saw, five 12-inch turning 
lathes, a grindstone and wood trimmer. 

In the forge shops are sixteen power forges, two hand forges 
and a pressure fan and exhauster for keeping the shop free of 
smoke. There is a full assortment of smiths tools for each forge. 

The foundry is equipped with an iron cupola, which melts 
1,200 pounds of iron per hour, a brass furnace, one core-oven, 
and the necessary flasks and tools. 



•Vn 



56 . •- 'S \l. ■ ^T-. ' ^ v.. 

The machine shop equipment consists of one lo-inch speed 
lathe, one 22-inch engine-lathe with compound rest, one 12-incli 
combined foot and power lathe, two 14-inch engine-lathes, one 
24-inch drill press, one No. 4 emery tool grinder, and an assort- 
ment of vises, taps, dies, pipe-tools and measuring instruments. 

The machinery of the pattern and machine shops is driven by 
b 9 by ii4-inch automatic cut off, high speed engine, built by 
members of the Junior and Senior Mechanical Engineering 
classes, after the standard design of the Atlas engine. An 8 by 
12-inch engine drives the machinery of the blacksmith shop and 
foundry. It was presented to the College by the City of Balti- 
more, and secured throtigh the efforts. of Rear- Admiral John D. 
Ford, United States Navy, retired. 

The drafting rooms are well-equipped for practical work, being 
well-lighted and of ample size.

THE MILITARY DEPARTMENT. 

captain EDGAR T. CONLEY, 15th. INFANTRY, U. S. A., PROFESSOR. 

This department is under the direction of a regular army 
officer detailed by the War Department, and it is in a decidedly 
flourishing condition. The military element enters largely into 
the general discipline of the College, and is an important factor 



6o • ... 

in the moral and physical development of the student body. The 
importance of regular daily exercise for boys during the forma- 
tive period, cannot be overestimated, and nothing else conduces 
so perfectly to effect this as military drill under competent in- 
structors. 

The military drill produces an erect and graceful carriage, and 
a manly and self-respecting bearing towards others, while the 
military discipline inculcates habits of reglilarity, neatness of 
person and quarters, promptness, and self-control. 

OBJECT OF MIMTARY INSTRUCTIOIf 

In return for certain money given the institution by the U. S. 
Government, the College authorities agree that all cadets shall 
receive such military training as may be given them by the rep- 
resentative of the government, the Professor of Military Science 
and Tactics. 

The object of this training is to perfect the military education 
of each graduate to such extent as will make him capable of per- 
forming the duties of an officer of the regular army, U. S, Volun- 
teers, or militia, especially in time of war. 

The regular army of the United States is so small that the 
Ccver:iment realizes it is necessary to have a body of citizens 
whose military education fits them for positions as officers in 
time of war, and it is with the idea of forming such a reserve of 
officers, that the Government is doing so much to improve the 
military departments of all military institutions of the United 
States. 

ORGANIZATION 

The corps of cadets is organized as a battalion of three com- 
panies, staff and band, the drill and administration of which con- 
form as far as possible to that of the regular army. 

All students, unless physically disabled, are required to drill, 
and upon entering are enrolled in one of the companies of the 
battalion. 

IJISTRUCTION 

The instruction in this department is both practical and theo- 






. < ' 6t 

retical. The practical instruction includes School of the Soldier, 
squad, company and battalion drill, close and extended order, 
ceremonies of guard-mounting, review and inspection, dress 
parade, and escort to the colors, advance and rear guard work, 
patrolling and scouting, marches and target practice. 

The theoretical instruction is given to all members of the 
Senior Class, and the non-commissioned officers of the Junior 
Class, and consists of instruction in Infantry Drill Regulations, 
guard duty, firing regulations for small arms, and field service 
regulations, supplemented by lectures on tactical subjects, army 
regulations, field engineering, first aid to the injured, company 
books, papers, messing, cooking, and tactics. 

Equipment. The battalion of cadets is equipped with the U. 
S. magazine rifle, 30 cal., known as the Krag-Jorgensen, with 
side arms and cartridge boxes. The cadet officers and non-com- 
missioned staff officers are equipped with the reg'ulation West 
Point cadet sword and sash. The Government has also supplied 
the battalion with the new regulation sub-calibre target rifle for 
gallery practice, and has been very liberal in the allowance of 
ammunition, both ball and blank, for gallery practice and field 
exercises. Stud,ents are held strictly accountable for arms and 
equipment issued them. 

" UNIFORM 

The uniform worn by members of the battalion, is of cadet 
gray, of the pattern worn at the U. S. Military Academy at West 
Point, and is furnished by the tailors having the contract, at a 
much lower price than it could be furnished to individuals. The 
student's measure is taken after he arrives at the College, and the 
fit is guaranteed. The uniform consists of cadet gray coat, trous- 
ers, and cap, with white web waist belt, and white web cross- 
belt for all military formations. 

In summer the field service uniform is worn, consisting of the 
khaki shirt and trousers, campaign hat and canvas legginf^s. 

The members of the battalion must wear the prescribed uni- 
form at all time, except when on leave of absence, and at such 
times when other dress is permitted. . , . u, ,...;. ^ , - ■ •

PROMOTIONS 



The officers and non-commissioned officers of the corps are 
selected with reference primarily to their fitness for the duties 
they will be required to perform. Their general deportment, 
and proficiency in academic work is also given weight in making 
such selection. Commissioned officers are selected from the 
Senior Class, sergeants from the Junior Class, and corporals 
from the Sophomore Class. 

Senior officers are required to serve for the year, performing 
all duties imposed by the regulations of the College, as part of 
their regular course of training. Failure to perform such duties 
shall constitute a deficiency, catising forfeiture of both diploma 
and commission. 

Recommendation for promotion will be based upon the stand- 
ing of a cadet at the end of the year, and the possibility of his 
being able to work off conditions during the summer will not be 
considered. 

The discipline of the institution is under the charge of the 
Commandant of Cadets at all times. All rules and orders relating 
to the organization and government of the corps of cadets, the 
appointment, promotion, and changes of officers, and all other 
orders affecting the Military Department are made and promul- 
gated by the Commandant of Cadets, after having been approved 
by the President. 

Cadets upon entering, are each required to pledge their word 
of honor that they will comply with all the rules and regulations 
of the instituion. They are then given a copy of the Rules and 
Regulations of the College and are held responsible for all vio- 
lations thereof. 

Trivial braachcs of regulations, absences from classes and for- 
mations, are punished by awarding demerits, confinements, 
walking extra guard hours, etc 

For aggravated offences the punishment may be arrests, with- 
drawal of privileges, suspension or expulsion, at the discretion 
of the Faculty and the President 



•J- 



Demerits will be awarded for every unremoved report, the 
number depending upon the nature and degree of the offense. 

For each month during which a cadet's conduct is perfect he 
will be given five (5) credits, which will cancel any five (5) de- 
merits he may have standing against him. 

Any cadet who shall accumulate more than an average of one 
demerit per day for any calendar month, shall be deprived of all 
privileges to leave the College for th,e following period of 30 days. 
Any cadet who shall accumulate more than an average of one de- 
merit per day for any term, shall be suspend,ed for the following 
term. Any cadet v\'"ho having been once suspended, returns ; 
and again in any one term accumulates more than an average of 
one demicrit per day, shall be dismissed. 

Smoking by any cadet of the Sophomore, Freshman, or Pre- 
paratory Department is strictly prohibited. 

Any cadet who shall drink any spirituous or intoxicating liquor, 
or cause the same to be brought wnthin cadet limits, or have the 
same in his possession is subject to immediate expulsion from 
the College. 

Every applicant for admission, before he is allowed to matric- 
ulate, is required to give a special pledge to refrain from what is 
popularly known as "hazing." Parents should impress upon 
their sons that failure to live up to this pledge is a dishonor 
which unfits them to be students of this College. "Hazing" is 
invariably punished by instant dismissal, 

THB CADET BAHD 

The Cadet Band has come to be recognized as a feature of the 
institution and one of the popular adjuncts of the battalion, and 
affords students of musical abilitv an excellent opportunity for 
musical instruction and practice, without cost 

The band is equipped with a set of first class instruments, fur- 
nished by the College, and under the direction of an experienced 
and competent bandmaster is rapidly being brought to a high 
state oi efficiency. Members of the band are excused from cer- 
tain military drills, but in other respects arc subject to the usual 
military regulations. Rehearsals are held each day at the regular 



64 , , ■ V 

drill period, and absence, without excuse is equivalent to ab- 
sence from any class. 

The band furnishes music for all ceremonies, such as guard 
mounting, review and inspections, dress parades, retreats, etc.

DEPARTMENT OF ORATORY. 

CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, PROFESSOR. 

The object of this department is to give a thorough training 
in public speaking. The work is begun with easy lessons in 
elocution, and this is continued "until the student has acquired a 
mastery of vocal expression, and a pleasing and forcible delivery. 
The student is then required to deliver both extempore and 



65 

prepared speeches, covering a wide range of subjects, in this 
yfny not only securing practice in delivery, but also developing 
the power of logical thought. , 

COURSES OFFERED. 

320. Oratory. Articulation, accent, modulation, inflection,

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL CULTURE. 

CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, DIRECTOR. 

The physical culture of the students is provided for by a regu- 
lar course of instruction in the Gymnasium. The course is care- 
fully planned, so as to develop gradually and scientifically the 
physical powers of each student. Beginning with the simplest 
calisthenic exercises, the instruction covers the whole field of 
light and heavy gymnastic and field and track athletics. 

Tlie equipment and arrangement of the Gymnasium is very 
complete, and the interest manifested by the students is a suffi- 
cient proof of the success of this department. While desiring to 
make the work in the Gymnasium of practical value to all the 
students, the required work only extends through the Prepara- 
tory and Freshman years. 

Three periods per week. Preparatory and First and Second 
Terms, Freshman Year. 

One of the most valuable features of this department is a 
complete anthropometry outfit, by means of which measure- 
ments and strength tests of students are taken at the beginning, 
and also at the end of each scholastic year. By means of these 
measurements and tests the exact physical condition of each in- 
dividual student can be ascertained, and such special exercises 
given as will produce a symmetrical development of the body. 

A valuable adjunct to this department has been the College 
Athletic Association, of which mention is made under the head 
of "Student Organizations." - 

Athletic Council. The Athletic Council consists of three 
members of the Faculty, appointed by the President, and five 
students, namely, the managers of the foot-ball, base-ball, track 
and tennis teams, and the President of the Athletic Association. 

This Council, in conjunction with the Student Athletic Ass> 
ciation, manages all athletic affairs.

- PREPARATORY SCHOOL. 

HENRY T. HARRISON, PROFESSOR IN CHARGE. 
CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, ASSOCIATE. 

This department was established in 1892. and reorg^anized in 
1909; and is designed to meet the requirements of those stu- 
dents who have not had the advantages of a thorough grammar 
and high school training, with a view to equipping them to enter 
the regtilar collegiate department. 

Only such students are desired as will be able to enter the 
Freshman Class within two years, and who are fifteen years of 
age. This course is recommended especially to students who 
have not been to school for several years ; for the progress in the 
regular collegiate course, by virtue of such a drawback, would 
be seriously impeded. It is to be remarked that as a rule the 
students who have taken this course make excellent progress 
in their later college work. Students in this department are sub- 
ject to the same military regulations as other students. 

For outline of courses see pages cSg, 90. 



VETERINARY DEPARTMENT. 

SAMUEL S. BUCKLEY, PROFESSOR. 

This department offers instruction in the elements of the vet- 
erinary art. The course embraces the study of the .external form 
as well as the internal structure and functions of the domesti- 
cated animals. It is intended to supplement animal husbandry 
instruction, and does not have for its obj,ect the training of stu- 
dents for veterinary practice. The preservation in health of ani- 
mals is more aimed at than their restoration from disease. When 
studiously pursued the courses offered are of great value to the 
breeder, feeder or manager of live stock. 



68 

The accompanying brief descriptions indicate the scope of the 
covirses offered: — 

340. Farm Buildings. This course has for its object the de- 
velopment of proper ideas in the construction and arrangement 
of buildings for the housing of stock; the storage of food ma- 
terials, animal and dairy products; and incidentally the storacre 
of harness and implements. Convenience, economy and proper 
sanitation are especially considered in the study of plans and lo- 
cation. The course is made as practical as possible by the study 
of plans, specifications and photographs of existing structures, 
and by drawing simple plans to express individual ideas. 

Sophomore Year, Second Term ; i theoretical and 4 practical 
periods per week. 

341. Anatomy and Physiology. This course embraces a 
general consideration of the structure and functions of the ani- 
mal body, with especial reference to animal production and 
dairying. 

Junior Year, Second Term; 3 theoretical periods per week. 

342. Bacteriology. The practical study of bacteria, includ- 
ing their microscopic examination, cultivation and sterilization, 
is made. The intimate relation which this subject bears to fer- 
tilization, dairying and plant and animal diseases makes it im- 
portant in the list of agricultural subjects. 

Junior Year, Second Term; 2 theoretical and 4 practical pe- 
riods per week. 

343. Bacteriology. This course completes course 342 begun 
in the Junior Year. 

Senior Year, Second Term; 8 practical periods per week. 

344. Animal Diseases. A general review of the course on 
diseases of the domesticated animals with instruction in sanita- 
tion, practical bacteriology, nursing, administration of medicines 
and use of common medicinal substances. The aim of this course 



69 

is to enable the student to perceive the early appearance of dis- 
eases and intelligently care for them under proper veterinary su- 
pervision. 

Senior Year, Second Term ; 5 theoretical and 6 practical pe- 
riods per week. 



THE COLLEGE LIBRARY. 

F. B. BOMBERGER, LIBRARIAN. 

The College Library may be properly regarded as one of the 
departments of the institution, as its aid for purposes of refer- 
ence and its influence upon the mental development of the stu- 
dents must always be felt throughout all courses. The present 
quarters of the Library, while adequate for its immediate needs, 
will necessarily be too limited in the course of time. The read- 
ing room is well arranged and lighted, and is in all respects com- 
fortable and convenient. 

While the Library is not large, the collection of works has 
been carefully chosen, and the shelves contain a fair supply of 
work of reference, history, biography, essa3^s, poetry and the 
standard works of fiction. Several thousand volumes of bound 
United States Government Reports comprise an important addi- 
tion to the reference works of the Library. I\Iost of the leading 
magazines and a number of newspapers are subscribed for ; tech- 
nical periodicals and works of reference relating to specific 
branches are deposited in the libraries of the various depart- 
ments. 

The works in the Library are classified according to the mod- 
ern Dewey Decimal System of classification. As rapidly as pos- 
sible the sets of Government Reports that are most valuable are 
being completed and catalogued. At present there are on hand 
completed to date, or nearing completion, sets of the reports and 
bulletins of the United States Agricultural Department, the 
Geological Survey, the Fish Commission, the Smithsonian In- 
stitution, the National Museum, the Bureau of Ethnology, the 



70 / • ; 

Bureau of Education, the Labor Bureau, the Census Bureau and 
the Bureau of American Republics. There are also nearly com- 
pleted sets of the Consular Reports, Special Consular Report? 
the Engineers Reports of the United States Army, the War of 
the Rebellion Record and Messages and Documents, besides 
many other miscellaneous publications of great value. Many 
valuable State publications are also on file. 

It is the aim of the Librarian to render all these valuable 
works available for easy reference by the students. 

Grateful acknowledgement is made to the officers of all the 
departments and bureaus above noted for their publications, and 
especially to the United States Superintendent of Documents, 
though whose aid many public documents have been received. 
Thanks are likewise due the following for valuable additions to 
the Library: Johns Hopkins University, the Geological Survey, 
the Weather Service, the Highway Commission, and the Bureau 
of Statistics and Information. Especial thanks are due the county 
press for their liberality in sending their publications free to 
the Library.

COURSES OF STUDY. 

In order to systematize the work of the different departments 
of the Colleg-e, and as far as possible arrange for specialization 
within limits consistent with the normal development of indi- 
vidual students, eight distinct courses of study have been pre- 
pared, one of which the student is expected to choose upon en- 
tering the regular college work. 

These courses are Agriculture, Horticulture, General, Biologi- 
cal, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering 
and Civil Engineering. 

A continuous and progressive course of work, beginning in 
the Freshman year, with a nearly uniform course for all students, 
and gradually separating in the three succeeding years until the 
class work is almost wholly specialized, has been found to be 
most satisfactory. A broad and liberal foundation in English, 
mathematics and history is laid in the Freshman and Sophomore 
years, and then the particular line of study desired is emphasiz- 
ed more and more until the end of the course. 

In the tabular statement of the courses the hours per week 
are given, the numbers in parenthesis denoting practical or la- 
boratory periods, others theoretical or recitation periods. 

AGRICUIiTURAIi COURSES 

The four-year agricultural course is designed to fit the student 
for conducting practical operations on the farm, or, should 
taste or circumstances so direct, to successfully prosecute ad- 
vanced scientific research along the lines of agronomy or animal 
husbandry. With this end in view, the course has been made at 
once comprehensive and technical, comprehensive enough to in- 
clude whatever is necessary fpr the complete development of the 
work, yet technical enough to make the student feel that he is a 
specialist and equipped for special work. 

This course is the result of development. While a man must 
specialize to attain any eminent success, yet in agricultural

science it is not possible to specialize to the same degree as in 
some others, because it is itself made up of many sciences. Ex- 
perience has clearly shown also that in agriculture the practical 
must keep even pace with the theoretical, that true education 
trains the eye and hand as well as the intellect, and should give 
to the student the abilty not only to acquire and originate ideas, 
but also to express them in words and deeds. 

In the Junior year the course is divided into two sections, 
known as the Division of Agronomy and the Division of Animal 
Husbandry. This arrangement enables the student to specialize 
along whichever line accords with his interests or desires, while 
at the same time he is taught the fundamental facts of both. 
This enables him to see most clearly, and to harmonize his work 
to, the relations which must exist between these great branches 
of agriculture. 

TWO-YEAR COURSE IN AGRICULTURE. 

A large number of young men seeking to better themselves in 
their chosen profession of farming are calling for instruction in 
those courses pertaining to practical agriculture. Many of them 
have neither the time nor means at hand to take the full four- 
year course, but while away in school they wish to gain the 
greatest possible amount of instrliction and assistance which is 
particularly applicable to the farm. The farm can no longer be 
run in the old-time haphazard w^ay. There is a demand for skill 
and the highest order of intelligence to make a success on the 
farm, as in any other line of human endeavor. Brains must be 
planted with each little seed, and again put into the feeding 
trough for the animal. To meet the demand for instruction along 
these lines, and for a better understanding of the underlying 
principles of successful agriculture, a short course of two years 
has been provided. 

It embraces much of the technical work of the four-year 
course, and is especially designed to lay a foundation that will 
secure success in practical farming, which, as it must be con- 
ducted today, is a union of many interests. To enter this course 
a working knowledge of arithmetic, including fractions, mensu- 
ration and percentage, and a common-school training in Eng- 
lish, is required. ; . 



76 

Upon completion of this course a certificate is granted, taking 
the place of the diploma for the four-year course. See outline of 
course on pages 89, 90. 

SPECIAL WINTER COURSE IN AGRICULTURE. 

A ten-w,eek course designed for those who are unable to take 
one of the longer courses, and including the largest amount of 
purely practical information about farming in all its phases. This 
course is invaluable to the young man desiring that information 
on agricultural topics so necessary to meet the sharp competi- 
tion of the present day. The College authorities have remov- 
ed the nominal charge of $5.00. We are anxious to have the 
young men of Maryland who intend to remain on the farm, em- 
brace this opportunity. Many cannot afford a four-year course; 
this solves the problem for them. 

Each student will be required to take not less than two hun- 
dred and fifty hours of work. Two hundred of these must be 
devoted to the following specified studies: 

Soils, 22 hours. Agricultural Chemistry, 20 hours. 

Farm Dairying, 20 hours. Farm Live Stock, 30 hours. 

Manures, 20 hours. Stock Feeding, 15 hours. 

Plant Production, 25 hours. Hbrticulture, 40 hours. 

The other fifty hours will be devoted to such topics as the stu- 
dent may elect from the following : Veterinary Science, 40 hours ; 
Tobacco Culture, 5 hours; Plant Physiology and Pathology, 15 
hours ; Economic Entomology, 20 hours ; Carpentering and 
Blacksmithing, 45 hours; Farm Accounts, 12 hours; Road Con- 
struction and Leveling, 5 hours ; Civil Government, 10 hours. 

Tuition and room free. No expense for use of laboratories or 
supplies. Good board at moderate rates can be secured in the 
neighboring villages of Berwyn, Lakeland, Riverdale and Hyatts- 
ville — all within a short distance of the College and Experim,ent 
Station. Electric cars make frequent connections. A limited 
number can be accommodated at the College at $40.00 for the 
course. Students will be expected to furnish their own bed 



clothes, pillows, towels, napkins and overalls for dairy work. 
Short course students are not required to drill or wear uniforms. 

BIOLOGICAL, COURSE 

The Biological course, while oflfering a general education and 
special training in the natural sciences is outlined in particular 
for those who wish to specialize in some branch of botany or 
zoology. It aims to fit men for practical work in the field of plant 
pathology and entomology, but will also give training for special 
work in the pure sciences. 

There are many opportunities for scientific workers in connec- 
tion with the agricultural investigations of the federal govern- 
ment and the state experiment stations, as well as in the state 
inspection work, for which this course gives training. In fact, 
it is now difficult to secure men trained for such work. Full op- 
portunity is given for the student to develop his natural resources 
and to learn to do work on his own responsibility. A large part 
of his time is spent in both practical and theoretical biological 
studies without neglecting the cultural studies which are a 
necessary foundation for every specialist. Upon completion of 
the four year's work the degree of Bachelor of Science is con- 
ferred. 

CHEMICAL COURSE 

The Course in Chemistry is essentially the same as the other 
Science Courses until the beginning of the Junior Year, though 
any of the four-year courses would prepare for this, as the 
amount of chemistry is the same in all courses to the end of the 
Sophomore year, and the demands on the agricultural or tech- 
nical chemist are now so varied that a foundation with more of 
the essentials of the agricultural or the mechanical courses is 
often desirable. 

Beginning with the Junior year the major part of the student's 
time is devoted to chemistry, the practical work in the laboratory 
occupying approximately half of his time. The course is essen- 
tially a course in agricultural chemistry, fitting the graduate for 
positions in agricultural colleges, experiment stations, or the 
United States Department of Agriculture.

CIVIIi ENGINEERING COURSE 

This course offers a young man an opportunity to obtain train- 
ing in civil engineering that will enable him to engage in practi- 
cal engineering work in the field or in the drafting room with the 
assurance that he has the necessary preparation to profit by the 
experience thus afforded; or that will entitle him to advanced 
standing, if he desires to pursue a more extended course at a 
technical school of a higher grade. The curriculum, which is out- 
lined on the following pages, includes not only studies having 
culture value, but the sciences which form the basis of engineer- 
ing. Students who have found themselves deficient in ability to 
learn mathematics are not advised to enter an engineering course. 
Upon the satisfactory completion of this course the degree of 
Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, is conferred. 

A thesis dealing with some problem in Engineering will be 
required of all applicants for the degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Civil Engineering. 

All engineering students in the Junior and Senior Classes will 
be required to spend a portion of their time in the reading of the 
current engineering magazines. 

ELECTRICAIi ENGINEERING COURSE 

This course is being introduced because of the great demand 
for young men who are not only well trained in the practical 
construction and operation of electrical machines, but who have 
a thorough knowledge of the principles and laws controlling the 
phenomena and forces with which they have to deal. 

The general plan of the course will be to make the student 
thoroughly acquainted with the scientific laws which are the 
basis of the profession, and at the same time to train him to adapt 
the laws to practise, to use his own judgment, and to apply 
honest and accurate methods in all his work. 

The clirriculum, as outlined in the following pages, for the 
Freshman, Sophomore and Junior Classes of the Session 1909- 
1910, includes those studies which provide a broad general cul- 
ture, as w,ell as a good foundation for the engineering w^ork 
which follows. From the beginning of the Second Term of the 
Sophomore Year the electrical training will extend continuously 
throughout the course.

^ GESNERAIi course: 

The general course is offered to those young men who have 
not chosen as their vocation in life any of the technical profes- 
sions, but who are seeking for such general culture as will fit 
them to become, after graduation, useful members of society. 
Young men desiring to study law, or medicine, or the liberal 
arts, or to become teachers, will find in the curriculum of this 
course a highly satisfactory preparation for such work. While 
emphasis has been placed upon the cultural subjects, such as 
English, Language, Literature, History, Mathematics, etc., the 
natural sciences occupy a prominent place in the course and the 
range of electives beginning in the Junior year will enable each 
to choose for himself, under certain necessary regulations, such 
a group of studies as will be best adapted to his own peculiar 
requirements. 

FOUR-YBJAR COURSfi IN HORTICUIiTURB 

The Hbrticultural Course is designed to give practical and 
scientific instruction in the great productive occupation of Hor- 
ticulture. Practical work in orchard, garden and greenhouse is 
made a prominent feature of the course, especially in its early 
part, which is designed to train young men in all the details of 
general fruit and truck growing. In this work the orchards, 
nursery and vineyard of the College and Experiment Station, 
which contain a great many varieties of all hardy commercial 
fruits, are used for practice and demonstration. 

In the Freshman and Sophomore years the work is not ma- 
terially different from that of the Agricultural and Biological 
courses, but in the Junior and Senior years the subjects of the 
course become grouped and specialized, and include a thesis 
upon some horticultural topic. 

The advanced work in horticulture is btiilt on thq practical 
-work before outlined, but tends to the scientific side, and the 
training of men for scholastic and experimental work in colleges, 
experiment stations, or in the Department of Agriculture. Ex- 
cursions are made by the students to floral establishments in 
Baltimore and Washington to note and study the commercial

aspects of floriculture. Models in landscape architecture and 
treatment are furnished by the parks and government grounds 
in and about the national capital. The State Horticultural So- 
ciety, by its meetings and exhibitions, affords the horticultural 
students of the College excellent training in the work of identi- 
fying, noting and judging fruit and vegetables. 

TWO-YEAR COURSE IN HORTICULTURE. 

The two-year course in Horticulture is intended for young 
men who wish to devote themselves to fruit and vegetable grow- 
ing, or to commercial nursery or flower business, and who can- 
not afford the time required for a regular college course. 

The cour&e includes practically all of the subjects given in the 
Department of Horticulture, and those of the courses in Agri- 
culture that are of importance for the study of general horticul- 
ture. Besides these, there is also a good training in English lan- 
guage, botany, entomology and chemistry. 

Upon finishing the Course the student gets a certificate which 
gives him credit for the work he has completed at the College. 

For outline of course see pages 89, 90. 

MECHAIflCAIi ENGINKERIITG COURSE 

The work of the several years of this course differs from the 
preceding courses (Agricultural, Horticultural, Biolop^ical and 
General) mainly in the omission of those subjects of a biological 
character and inclusion of mathematics and shop work. The shop 
work supplements the mathematical, especially in the last two 
years, when problems in machine design are worked out, so far 
as time allows, in the actual construction of the parts designed. 
The practical work of this course is most thorough. The student 
is familiarized from the first with the use of tools and imple- 
ments used in wood and iron work. He is given daily practice 
in the shops, and is encouraged to develop whatever inventive 
talent he may have. Results have shown that students complet- 
ing this course have no difficulty in securing employment im- 
mediately upon graduation in the field of mechanics or mechani- 
cal engineering.

GENERAL INFORMATION. 



RECtVIRBKBIVTS FOR ADMISSION 



For admission to classes other than the Freshman, an exami- 
nation is required. This examination is not a memory test, but 
is rather a series of questions offered with a view of ascertaining 
the applicant's general knowledge of the principles involved. 
Examinations for 1910 will be held at the College on Tuesday, 
September 14th, and Wednesday, September 15th. Morning ses- 
sions will begin at 9:30; afternoon sessions, at i :oo o'clock. To 
candidates for admission to the Freshman class who have not a 
diploma, .examinations will be offered in English grammar, com- 
position and analysis. United States history, arithmetic complete 
and algebra complete. 

Examinations for the Sub-Freshman class will be less rigid 
in English and history, with algebra required up to quadratics 
and arithmetic complete. 

For entrance to the Preparatory class, the requirements are: 
English Grammar, elementary; arithmetic as far as percentage, 
a general knowledge of the facts of United States history, and 
geography. 

Applicants who desire assignment to class.es more advanced 
than the Freshman must be prepared to take an examination 
equivalent to that given at the College for promotion to the class 
they desire to enter. Experience has proved that it is almost 
impossible for a new student to succeed in the work of the me- 
chanical course as a Sophomore ; and such assignment will be 
made only upon the candidate presenting satisfactory evidence 
of proficiency in drawing and wood work. 

Every applicant for admission to the College must bring satis- 
factory testimonials as to his character and scholarship from his 
former teacher. This will be absolutely insisted upon. No stu- 
dent need apply for entrance v/ho cannot furnish such credentials. 



io8 

Students from newly acquired territory or any foreign country 
must have a guardian appointed with parental powers, with 
whom the President can deal in any case of emergency. Students 
who cannot speak English are undesirable, and are advised that 
satisfactory progress at this College on their part cannot be ex- 
pected until they hav,e familiarized themselves partly, at least, 
v/ith the English language. 

EXAMINATIONS AND PKOMOTIONS 

In order to pass from one class to the next higher a student is 
required to pass an examination in each study pursued by a 
mark of at least sixty per cent., and to have a combined mark in 
each branch (daily and examination) of at least seventy per cent. 
A failure in not more than one branch will enable a student to 
pass to the next class with condition in that study in which he 
has failed ; but in every case the student is required to make good 
such failure during the next year. Hbwever, no student in the 
Engineering Courses will be promoted to the Junior Class, who 
is deficient in Sophomore mathematics. 

For rules for military promotions see Military Department. 

REPORTS 

Detailed reports are sent to parents and guardians at the end 
of every quarter. These give the grade of the student in every 
branch of study, his attendance record, and his conduct record 
with comment by the President upon each item. 

In addition to this, monthly reports are issued for October, 
November, January, February and April. These give general in- 
formation as to scholarship, conduct, attendance and health, and 
call attention to deficiency in any one of these particulars.

SCHOLARSHIPS. 

COMPBTITITB SCHOIiARSHIPS 

The College offers a number of scholarships — one for each 
sectional district of the State. These scholarships are awarded 
to the successful candidate in competitive examinations, con- 
ducted in Baltimore City, by the Superintendent of Public In- 
struction, and in the counties by the County School Superin- 
tendent. All scholarship students must be prepared for en- 
trance to the Freshman class, and are required to take the reg- 
ular entrance examination. Each scholarship is good for four 
years, or for such part thereof as the holder remains at the Col- 
lege. It is then again open for competition. The cost per year 
for scholarship students will be found under the head of "Stu- 
dent Expenses." The following is an extract from the require- 
ments of the Board of Trustees, relating to scholarships : 

"Persons holding certificates of scholarship must present them- 
selves at the College, or other designated place, at the date which 
may be named in the September or January next follov/ing the 
award, and be examined by College authorities for entrance to 
the Freshman Class. Alternates are to be thus examined, as well 
as principals, and in case of a failure of the principal to secure or 
hold the scholarship, the alternate will have the first right to the 
place declared vacant, if within a year from date of the certificate 
of award. 

"Persons holding certificates of scholarship must, in order to 
secure the same, pass the entrance examination of the College, 
and (if entering in January) such other examination as may be 
required to join the Freshman Class. To hold a scholarship, the 
student must make all payments promptly, and meet such re- 
quirements of the College as to scholarship and deportment as 
may be prescribed by the President and Faculty. By passing 
special examination, or by presenting satisfactory certificates, 
candidates for scholarship may be permitted to enter the Sopho- 
more Class/' A student who fails of promotion, thereby for- 
feits his scholarship and the School Board which granted such 
scholarship will be notified accordingly. 



113 



INDUSTRIAIi SCHOLARSHIPS 



There are also offered b)- the College a limited number of "In- 
dustrial Scholarships." Th,e holder of such a scholarship is re- 
quired to work as a waiter or janitor a definite number of hours 
alternate days ; these hours are so arranged as to conflict as little 
as possible with his time for study or recitation. 

In consideration of their work a rebate of $140 a year is grant- 
ed each of these students. 

A selection is made from applicants for these scholarships on 
the basis of mental preparation, physical ability and moral char- 
acter. Preference will be given to the sons of citizens of Mary- 
land. Applications for this scholarship specifying age, weight, 
mental advancement and enclosing testimonial of moral charac- 
ter must be made in writing to the President of the College prior 
to September ist, and the successful applicants for this scholar- 
ship will be notified to report in person at the College in Sep- 
tember. 



STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES. 

A limited amount of money csn be earned by students by t3k- 
ing advantage of the opporttirities arising from tiiTie to time to 
do clerical work, tutoring, and such other labor ,is ma}- not in- 
terfere with regular scholastic duties. Those in need of helc to 
continue their work, and Vv'hose course is marked by an earnest 
desire to succeed, are always given the preference. 

F-ACIMTIES FOR REI.IGIOtS ^VORSHIP 

The College is undenominational in character. The dailv exer- 
cises of the College are opened with religious v.^orship in the 
College Chapel. 

Students are encouraged to attend the church of their choice 
on Sunday mornings. There is an Episcopal chn''ch at College 
Park; and at Bervv-yn, one mile north, and at Riverdale, one mile 
south, are Presbyterian churches. In Hyattsville, two miles 
south, may be found Catholic, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Baptist 



114 



and Methodist churches. In the city of Washington are churches 
of all denominations, and leave is granted to students to attend 
service in this city on Sunday mornings. 



COLLEGE REGULATIONS. 

The attention of parents is earnestly called to the following 
rules in force at this College : The College authorities can suc- 
ceed in conferring the maximum amount of training upon the 
student only with and by the active support and earnest co-oper- 
ation of the parent. The President of the College is always ready 
and willing to discuss any failures in a student's record with his 
parent or guardian, and correspondence on this subject is always 
welcome. 

No student will be accepted as a matriculate until the contract 
card containing the following agreement for matriculation is 
signed by parent or guardian, and received by the President of 
the College: 

"It is understood that the President of the College as the exe- 
cutive of the same, and acting for the Board of Trustees, a party 
to this contract, has the right to ask the withdrawal of a student 
at any time, v/hen in his judgment such withdrawal may be 
necessary either for the interest of the young man or the institu- 
tion which he attends. It is further understood that a parent or 
guardian can at any time withdraw his son or ward, subject to 
regulations herein set forth." 

A cadet manifesting an indifference to the observance of the 
rules and regulations of the institution, or wanting in proper at- 
tention to the preparation of his work, will be cautioned to im- 
prove in these particulars. Failing to do so his parents, upon 
notice given by the President, must withdraw their son. 

A special pledge to refrain from what is popularly known as 
"hazing," and taking unfair means in examinations is required 
of every applicant for entrance, before he will be allowed to ma- 
triculate. Parents should impress upon their sons that failure 



*: ' 



II ; 

to live up to this pledge is a dishonor which unfits them to be 
longer students of the College. "Hazing" is invariably punished 
by instant dismissal. 

Frequent absences from the College are invariably of great Aiz- 
advantage to the student, in breaking in upon the continuity of 
his work, and in distracting his mind from the main purpose of 
his attendance at the institution. Parents are therefore earnestly 
asked to refrain from granting frequent requests to leave the 
College. 

Students will not be permitted to leave classes or quarters dur- 
ing study hours to answer telephone calls, unless they are ur- 
gent. 

Students will not be permitted to make contracts or to sell any 
article to their associates without the approval of the President. 

The sale of second hand furniture or clothing to nev/ cadets is 
prohibited unless the sale be approved by the commandant of 
cadets. 

The College will not be responsible for articles left in the bar- 
racks during vacation, nor for valuables left by students in their 
rooms at any time. They should be deposited with the College 
Treasurer, who will place them in the College safe and give a 
receipt therefor. 

RULES OF COMMITTEE ON COLLEGIATE ROUTINE, ENDORSED BY THE FACULTY. 

1. A Student mzy not change his course of study unless at the written re- 
quest of his parent cr guardian, and after said request has been endorsed by 
the dean of the course abandoned, and the dean of the cour?e requested, and 
approved by this committee. 

2. Examinations to make up conditions will be given only at times set apart 
by this committee. These dates will be just before the regular quarterly ex- 
aminations in December, March and June ; also the day before the resumption 
of college work in September. Notice of intention to take these examinations 
must be filed in writing with the chairman of the r':hedule committee at least 
10 days before examinations commence. Should, for anj- reason, a special 
examination be requested at any other time, a charge of $2.00 will be made 
for each subject on which the applicant is examined. 

3. To attain proficiency a student must make an examination grade of 60 
per cent; also a term average of 70 percent. In case of failure^ upon re- 
examination, a grade of 70 per cent, is required.

12. Senior students must submit subjects for graduating theses prior to 
February 1, and all theses for graduation must be completed prior to May 15. 

13. No special courses are permitted save by consent of this committee. In

comply with this requirement will subject the student to much 
inconvenience. Any unexpended balance will be returned 
promptly. 



STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS. 

Students' clubs for religious, social, literary and athletic pur- 
poses are encouraged as a means of creating class and college 
pride, and developing an esprit de corps among the students. 
Each class has its own organization, in which matters relating 
to the class are discussed and directed. Officers are elected and 
the unity of the class preserved. This has been found to be a 
decided aid to discipline and tends to raise the standard of stu- 
dent honor. 

YOUKG MEWS CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 

President, W. M. Aikenhead. 

Vice-President, M. Koenig, Jr. 

Secretary, F. J. Maxwell. 

Treasurer, D. W. Glass. 
Much encouraging work has been done by this organiztaion 
during the past year, and much interest has been shown in the 
meetings. 

MTERARY SOCIETIES 

These societies are invaluable adjuncts to college work. 
Through them a good knowledge of parliamentary law is gained, 



I20 

as well as a readiness of expression and activity in thought, qual- 
ities particularly valuable to the American citizen. 

The literary society work is under the general supervision of 
the Professor of Oratory, who is always ready to advise with the 
members in matters of parliamentary law and train them in the 
delivery of their orations and debates.

couraged and supported by the President and Faculty. The en- 
tertainments have been marked by a spirit which emphasizes the 
wisdom of its continuance and justifies its encouragement.

THE ORATORICAL ASSOCIATION OF MARTIaAND COIjIjEGBS 

The Maryland Agricultural College is a member of this Asso- 
ciation, which is composed of St. John's College, Washington 
College, Western Maryland College and Maryland Agricultural 
College. Contests are held annually at these colleges in rotation, 
and a marked improvement is to be observed as a result of its 
organization.

THE ALUMIfl ASSOCIATION 

"The Alumni Association is steadily growing in two ways; 
that is to say, recent graduates almost invariably become active 
members, and the graduates of the earlier days of the College 
are becoming more active and more interested in all that pertains 
to the welfare of their Alma Mater. 

The Association has continued the offer of medals for worthy 
students in the several collegiate departments, and there is no 
doubt regarding the wisdom of stimulating in this way the ener- 
gies of the students. The enrollment of the Alumni Association 
is now reaching a point where some definite accomplishni,ent can 
be effected, and each individual should be ready to suggest a de- 
sirable project, at the same time to assist in the execution of that 
object which is most feasible and popular with the Association 
at large. 

The entire institution as viewed from the Alumni standpoint 
is worthy of the confidence of its patrons and the public. Each of 
us should feel that every step in advance of that achieved in our 
day, should give us a feeling of pride, that it is in a manner the 
result of the successful completion of the work then offered, and 
should bind us more closely to the work of the present and the 
broadening of its future." 

The officers for the year are: President, F. W. Besley, '92; 
Vice-President, A. S. Gill, '07; Secretary-Treasurer, T, B, 
Symons, '02; Executive Committee, members at large, J. Enos 
Ray, '92; S. H. Harding, '95. 

Graduates and m,embers of the association are requested to 
keep the Secretary-Treasurer, T. B. Symons, College Park, Md., 
informed of any changes in their addresses. Any information 
concerning the older graduates which will enable the officers to 
locate and communicate with them will facilitate their efforts 
and -will tend to further the success of the Association.
