Statistics of Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges, 1916-17. Bulletin, 1918, No. 41
Andrews, Benjamin F.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The report of the agricultural and mechanical colleges for the year 1916-17 has more than ordinary significance on account of the important relation of those institutions to the war. From the beginning they have cooperated closely with the Government in furnishing a large quota of men with military training. Courses have been added which will further promote efficiency in the home and agricultural life of the community at large. Many colleges have added or adapted mechanical and engineering courses which will be of special service in war activities. The statistics here do not show the exact loss of students and instructors which resulted from the declaration war, but is has been estimated that the loss amounts to about 20 per cent of the total enrollment. This bulletin presents the statistics of agricultural and mechanical colleges from 1916-1917. (Contains 12 tables and 1 footnote.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
