MARYLAND'S COMPLETE GRID RECORD
By Bill Hottel
Here is Maryland's football record by years of collegiate games only.
Before the Curley Byrd coaching regime began in 1912 it was not un-
usual to play two or more high schools of the vicinity each season.
Some were practice games, others real contests but often the score
was not even recorded. The records were checked and rechecked during
the past summer and, if not 100 percent, doubtless are as correct as they
ever can be made!

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY
The history of the present University is the history of two in-
stitutions: the old privately-owned and operated University of Mary-
land in Baltimore and the Maryland State College (formerly Maryland
Agricultural College) at College Park. These institutions were merged
In 1807 the College of Medicine of Maryland was organized, the
fifth medical school in the United States. The first class was graduated
in 1810. A permanent home was established in 1814-1815 by the erection
of the building at Lombard and Greene Streets in Baltimore, the oldest
structure in America devoted to medical teaching. Here was founded
one of the first medical libraries (and the first medical school library)
in the United States. In 1812 the General Assembly of Maryland author-
ized the College of Medicine of Maryland to "annex or constitute facil-
ities of divinity, law, and arts and sciences," and by the same act de-
clared that the "colleges or faculties thus united should be constituted
an university by the name and under the title of the University of Mary-
land." By authority of this act, steps were taken in 1813 to establish
"a faculty of law," and in 1823 a regular school of instruction in law
was opened. Subsequently there were added: in 1882 a Department of
Dentistry which was absorbed in 1923 by the Baltimore College of
Dental Surgery (founded in 1840, the first dental school in the world) ;
in 1889 a School of Nursing; and in 1904 the Maryland College of
Pharmacy (founded in 1841, the third oldest pharmacy college in the
The Maryland State College was chartered in 1856 under the name
of the Maryland Agricultural College, the second agricultural college in
the Western Hemisphere. For three years the College was under private
management. In 1862 the Congress of the United States passed the Land
Grant Act. This act granted each State and Territory that should
claim its benefits an appropriate amount of unclaimed western lands,
in place of scrip, the proceeds from the sale of which should apply under
certain conditions to the "endowment, support, and maintenance of at
least one college where the leading object shall be, without excluding
other scientific and classical studies, and including nrlitary tactic?, to
teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and the
mechanic arts, in such a 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." This grant was accepted by the General Assembly of Maryland,
and the Maryland Agricultural College was named as the beneficiary
of the grant. Thus the College became, at least in part, a State institu-
tion. In the fall of 1914 control was taken over entirely by the State.
In 1916 the General Assembly granted a new charter to the College, and
made it the Maryland State College.
In 1920, by an act of the State Legis'ature, the University of Mary-
land was merged with the Maryland State College, and the resultant
institution was given the name University of Maryland,
