ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

Cornell University is the land grant institution for New York State. The University was founded in 1865, and much of its original land and endowment came from the Morrill Land Grant Act. In subsequent years, the State Legislature established four statutory colleges at Cornell: Veterinary Medicine in 1894; Agriculture in 1904; Home Economics (now Human Ecology) in 1924; and Industrial and Labor Relations in 1944. While the statutory colleges are affiliated with the State University system and receive state funding , they are not state-run.

COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

A series of reports on the statutory colleges of Cornell University, completed for the New York State Department of Education in 1928. The statutory colleges during this period included the College of Agriculture, the College of Home Economics, and the New York State College of Veterinary Medicine. The New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva was also a statutory unit. The individual reports were written by Edwin West Allen, E. T. Ashbaugh, Fred Englehart, Edward Lord, Albert Russell Mann, E. T. Perine, and Harlan Updegraff.
