By the Federal Land Grant Act of July 2, 1862, each State received a grant of land for the purpose of endowing at least one college of agriculture and mechanic arts. The second Morrill Act of 1890 provided for an annual appropriation to each State which was increased by the Nelson amendment of 1907. Since 1911 each State has received $50,000 annually from the United States Treasury for salaries and for facilities of instruction in certain specified subjects in the land-grant colleges and universities. Annual reports on these funds and on the condition of the colleges are required by law to be made to the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Agriculture. These reports are edited, consolidated, and interpreted for the benefit of those interested in the progress of the land-grant institutions. This report includes three parts: (I) General: Survey of land-grant colleges and universities, Association of land-grant colleges and universities, and New Federal legislation; (II) Land-grant colleges attended by white students; and (III) Negro land-grant colleges. An index is provided. (Contains 25 tables.) [The best copy of this document available has been provided.]
