Kansas State Agricultural College Records, 1868-1920

Scope and Contents Note

The collection (1868-1920) was stored in three boxes labeled "Building papers, correspondence, etc. 1875?-1900," "Correspondence, etc. 1875-1900" and "Old papers--Pres's Fairchild & Anderson" in Special Collections for many years. The papers, consisting of approximately 1000 items, were organized into six document boxes by Evan Williams in 1984.

The collection is arranged in 12 series: 1) correspondence, 1868-[1898?]; 2) physical improvements (building program), 1872-1897; 3) bonds; 4) surety bonds, 1878-1904; 5) petitions, ca. 1890; 6) reports, 1873-ca. 1890; 7) minutes, 1897; 8) legal documents, 1873-1889; 9) financial documents, 1870-1897; 10) notes, drafts and lists, ca.1890-1920; 11) printed material, 1881-[ca. 1900]; 12) reports of loan commissioners, 1871-1898.

Much of the correspondence in the first series is addressed to KSAC Presidents Joseph Denison, and to John A. Anderson and George T. Fairchild in particular. There are many letters of application for positions at KSAC, letters of appointment and resignations. U.S. Army officers wishing to join the Military Science Department wrote quite a few letters to President Fairchild. William A. Kedzie wrote John A. Anderson numerous letters concerning Kedzie's illness and absence from KSAC, his travels in Europe, his engagement to be married and resignation. The Manhattan Street Railway and leasing land are mentioned.

Physical improvements (building programs), series 2, is divided into two sub-series: 1) buildings, 1872-1897; and 2) utilities, 1884-1891. The buildings sub-series contains papers on Domestic Science Hall (now Old Kedzie Hall), Anderson Hall, Agricultural Science Hall (now Fairchild Hall), President's House (burned 1895), Science Hall, Horticulture Hall (later Illustrations Hall, razed 1959), Mechanics Hall (later Farm Machinery Hall razed 1963), a machine shop, a barn and a laboratory. The utilities sub-series concerns sanitary engineering on the campus, water mains, boilers and a stone wall.

Bonds, series 3, originated in 1871 with a resolution of the Board of Regents of KSAC ordering the sale of school bonds. There is some interesting correspondence regarding a bond of School District No. 77, Linn County, Kansas, forged by R. B. Bryan. As well as papers relating to school bonds, this series contains municipal and railroad bonds, some of which KSAC bought.

Surety bonds, series 4, were drawn up for Loan Commissioners and Treasurers of the institutions. In some cases the financial worth of the individuals signing the bonds is given.

Kansas State Agricultural College students signed the petitions in 1890 that make up series 5. The students ask for "better equipment and a more suitable room for physical training," new uniforms for cadets and the addition of German to the curriculum.

The reports in series 6 cover diverse topics. One folder concerns the Instrumental Music Department, two are grade and conduct reports on students at colleges other than KSAC and two are on tuberculosis tests of cattle.

Minutes, series 7, is limited to one folder containing a record of two faculty meetings in 1897.

Legal documents, series 8, concerns the Kansas Legislature, the biennial system for appointing regents, and a water supply for the college.

Financial documents, series 9, consists of merchant's bills, lists of vouchers, an act of the Legislature appropriating money for KSAC and "college greenbacks," a type of banknote issued in denominations of one hundred dollars.

The more important subjects of notes, drafts and lists, series 10, are the philosophy of the curriculum at the college, facts about the achievements of KSAC, and industrials (a nineteenth and early twentieth century form of work-study at this institution).

Highlights of series 11, printed material, are announcements of individuals seeking positions; reprints from the Lansing Daily Journal concerning a professor and the suspension of two of his students; an illustrated advertisement for the Kalamazoo [animal] Food Cooker; a request, 1891, for one telephone at KSAC; a clipping concerning the college during the Populist Period; and literature from the National Refining Company of Cleveland, Ohio, about its gasoline and kerosene.

Series 12, reports of loan commissioners, includes a resolution setting forth their duties. The reports themselves indicated the amounts for which they drew warrants and which bonds they purchased.
