ofiice and clerical work, and he did all his letter-writing in longhand. He even per-
sonally entered all the marks of all the students into the records. During his term a.s
President C1904-19115 the University enrollment increased sevenfold. The faculty
was correspondingly augmented by the addition of scholarly men and women. The
gains of the earlier years were now consolidated, and plans laid for future expansion.
President Huntington also successfullyiopposed a movement to shorten the four
years of study required for the baccalaureate degree.
Under Lemuel Herbert Murlin, who was President from 1911 to 1925, the Uni-
versity expanded rapidly. The College of Business Administration, the School of
Education, the School of Religious and Social Service Qnow the School of Religious
and Social Workj, the College of Secretarial Science fnow the College of Practical
Arts and Lettersj, and the Summer Session were inaugurated under his administra-
tion. President Murlin enlarged the University in every possible way, and the en-
rollment soared over the ten-thousand mark. The educational program of the Uni-
versity made its influence felt throughout New England. In making the community

HARTERED on llay 26, 1869, Boston University did not really begin to function
as a University until 1871, with theccadoption of the Boston Theological Semi-
nary. From a small unit consisting ofthe TheologicalSchool and a Female Medical
School, Boston Pniversity has grown into the largest university in New England.
It has not forgotten the high aims of its founders to promote virtue, piety, and
learning in the liberal artsand sciencesglts doors have always been open to men and
women alike, and nofdiscriininationremade because of the individual's religious
views. That it has lieengilabletto do thispis due to the work of its five Presidents-

Xvillilllll Fairfield the served from 1869 unt.il 1903, and
was in an academic sense the founder of the University, for he was a pioneer in edu-
cation, an organizer and culturist who inculcated those principles of liberal and pro-
gressive education still so evident i11 Boston University today. The impression of his
powerful personality and-character may be seen in the attitude of the administra-
tion regarding its responsibilities to tl1e'studentp,a.11d the community. During his
years in office the Departments of Law and 1NIedicine were added. The Graduate
School was created under the title of the School of all Sciences to allow the oppor-
tunity for further study to graduates of the newly organized College of Liberal
Arts. There was also a. College of Oratory which ha.s since been abolished.
President Wiilliain Edwards Huntington came to Boston University in 1891 and
served as Professor of History and Ethics. As Dean he had no secretaries to do the
