HISTORY AND DESCRIPTION OF THE
Purdue University originated in the Act of Congress approved July 2, 1862, appropriating public lands to the various states for the purpose of aiding in the maintenance of colleges for instruction in agriculture and the mechanic arts.
The State of Indiana accepted the provisions of the Act of Congress by an Act of Legislature approved March 6, 1865, thus providing for the establishment and maintenance of the institution. Notable donations have been accepted in the same faith from the citizens of Tippecanoe county, from John Purdue, Martin L. Pierce, Amos Heavilon and Eliza Fowler.
Two subsequent Acts of Congress for the further endowment of the institution have been formally accepted under the stated conditions by the Legislature of the State, which has also fixed the name and location of the University.

The property of the institution is held in the name of the State and can not be disposed of without legislation.
The plan and purpose of the University is to provide liberal instruction in those arts and sciences relating to the various industries, and to conduct investigation and disseminate information concerning the principles and applications of agricultural science.
The scope and work of the University is fixed by law as set forth in the three Acts of Congress relating to the establishment of the institution as follows: The Act approved 1862, appropriating lands, states that
"The leading objects shall 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 man
