The Services Performed By American Colleges and Universities for Agriculture and Industry.
Cowley, W. H.; Jacks, David
During the ninety-eight years since Abraham Lincoln signed the Land Grant College Act, American colleges and universities have prodigiously expanded and extended the activities begun even earlier by alert pioneers. No longer do they limit themselves to the polite learning of interest to the republic of letters. Their services for agriculture and industry sketched here illustrate developments and achievements not only in the "useful arts and sciences" but also in the fundamental knowledge underlying them and modern civilization generally. In sum, American higher education has become integrated with every concern of the nation that requires substantial intelligence and advanced training. (Author)
