LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL.
DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,
SIR: I am transmitting herewith for publication as a bulletin of the Bureau of Education the manuscript of the report of a survey of the system of higher education of the State of North Dakota, including the University of North Dakota; the North Dakota Agricultural College; the normal schools at Mayville, Valley City, and Minot; the Normal and Industrial School at Ellendale; the School of Science at Wahpeton; the School of Forestry at Bottineau; and the State Library Commission, which has its offices in the Capitol at Bismarck. The survey has been made, as stated in the body of the report, under my direction and at the request of the State board of regents. The investigations in the field were made by Dr. William T. Bawden, the bureau's specialist in vocational education; Dr. Edwin B. Craighead, formerly president of the University of Montana, employed by the board of regents; and Dr. Lotus D. Coffman, dean of education of the University of Minnesota, serving at my request.
In this report no attempt has been made to appraise the ability of any individual teacher, the work of any department, or the contents of any particular course of study; only the spheres and functions of the several institutions have received primary consideration.
The SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR.
P. P. CLAXTON,
