REPORT TO THE SECRETARY OF AGRICULTURE AND
THE SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR.
Name of Institution, Purdue University; Postoffice, La Fayette; State, Indiana.
Report of the President of said institution to the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Agriculture, as required by Act of Congress of August 30, 1890, in aid of Colleges of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts.
I. CONDITION AND PROGRESS OF THE INSTITUTION FOR THE
YEAR ENDED JUNE 30, 1900, ESPECIALLY
1. The Winter Course in Agriculture put into active operation for the first time industrial courses especially designed for women, as follows: Floriculture; Household Economy; Household Sanitation, Domestic Economy; Botany; Drawing; Studies in Literature. About twenty women attended one or another of these
2. (a) A portion of the Men's Dormitory has been remodeled for recitation rooms; eleven additional rooms are thus made available for class work.
(b) Over 11,000 square feet of cement walks have been laid on the campus completing the work so far as present needs go.
(c) The equipment in all departments has been added to, to the value of not less than $10,000.
3. Eight hundred and forty-nine students were enrolled, an increase of 100 over any previous year. This increase was largely distributed between the freshman class--numbering 241, and the winter class in agriculture-numbering 92. The graduating class was somewhat smaller than that of the previous year, the class of '99 having been exceptionally large.
During the year we have published the Annual Report of the Experiment Station—150 pages, illustrated; four regular bulletins, and ten newspaper bulletins.
The State appropriation of $5,000 has been inadequate of late years to meet the increasing demands of Farmers' Institutes. This sum is supplemented by appropriations from the University funds which pay the salary of the Superintendent and the general expenses of administration. The University also places its corps of professors at the disposal of the institutes as lecturers.
During the past year there were held under the direction of the Superintendent, 104 regular institutes, and, in addition to these, about 45 independent or supplementary institutes.
