10 ROYAL PURPLE ioio passed the examination for a life diploma as a Swiss teacher. He then returned to Canton College and finished the five-year technical course. He then took a course in Civil Engineering in the Uni- versity of Berns, after which he worked for a time as a geodetic surveyor. In 18 ' 68 he landed in New York without resources other than perseverance and willingness to work. How well he succeeded may he judged from the fact that nine years after landing in Xew York he had become the head of the Department of Industrial Drawing at K. S. A. C. During lv ' s long period of service here, his ability as an instructor and as an advisor in building matters has moved him stead : lv upwards. At the time of the organization of the four- year course in Architecture, in 1904, he was made head of that De- partment, which position he now holds. JULIUS TERRASS WILLARD, D.Sc. Dean of Science, Professor of Chemistry Professor Willard is a native of Kansas of whom the state should be proud. His work in the College ranges from student to Dean, the intermediate portions always indicating a steady climb toward the top. Dean Willard received Irs B. S. degree at K. S. A. C. in 1883; was Assistant in Chemistry, 1883-87; student : ' n Johns Hopkins University, 1887-88; received his M. S. at K. S. A.

Sc. from K. S. A. C, 1908. He is a member of a dozen or more of the leading National Scientific Societ: ' es and his work has earned for him a prominent place in " Who ' s Who in America. " At the time that he became head of the Chemistry Department, in 1901, the total number enrolled in all the Chemistry classes for the year was 031 ; in 1909 and 1910 the number was 2,417. Since 1901 Lhe Experiment Station work has greatly increased, and several lines of State work have been assigned to the Chemistry Department. The

ROYAL PURPLE igio Faculty and Assistant Professors DEAN WEBSTER, B.S.Agr., M.S. Dean of Agriculture, Director of Experiment Station Ed Webster is a native of the Sunflower State. He is one of the few Kansans who have won national distinction. After being- granted an M.S. at K. S. A. C. Mr. Webster added B. A. to his name at the Iowa State College. Mr. Webster has made rapid advancement, beginning as As- sistant in Dairying at this institution in 1901, he was soon promoted to Professor of the Department. From this position in 1903 he was called to Washington, D. C, to act as Expert in Dairying. This position he held until 1905, when he was chosen to fill an opening in a large field, as Clr ' ef of the Dairy Division. When the chair of Director of the Experiment Station was vacated several likely candi- dates were considered for the position. Mr. W ' ebster was chosen as the one best fitted to bring the work of the Department into harmony with the students and the Agricultural interests of the state. With this in view, Dean Webster has reorganized, added to, and improved the work of the station. This " big man " with his pleasant demeanor has won the confidence of the student body. JOHN D. WALTERS, M.Sc, D.A. Professor of Architecture and Drawing Professor Walters has the distinction of being the senior of the professors on the hill, both in age and in years of service. He was born in Unterramsem, Switzerland, and received his early educa- tion in that country, graduated from the High School of Buchegg- berg in 1863 at the head of his class. He then entered Canton College, but on account of finances was compelled to drop out and teach for a couple of years. During the time, however, he made up a year or two of his college work by private study and in 1866

ROYAL PURPLE igio 11 Professor of Chemistry is now an advisory member of the State Board of Health and one of the food analysts for the Board. The Chemist of the Experiment Station is in charge of the analysis and inspection of fertilizers under the State laws relating to those articles. He is also authorized to make analyses for the State Dairy Commis- sioner. The great increase in the number of students and hence in the number coming to the Chemistry Department, together with the great enlargement of the Experiment Station and official Chemistry work has more than filled the capacity of the Chemistry and Physical Science Hall. At present there is probably no department so badly crowded for space as this. Among the more important lines of work undertaken in the de- partment during the last nine years have been digestion and nutrition experiments with prairie hay and alfalfa, milling and baking tests of wheat and flour, comparison of the digestibility of bleached and unbleached flour, investigations concerning the percentage of water and the occurrence of copper in oysters, and a beginning has been made in a chemical investigaton of Kansas soils. BENJAMIN L. REMICK, Ph-.M. Professor of Mathematics Along about the time of Cleveland ' s administration, when things were rather dull, the professors about Cornell College amused them- selves by watching a young magician pick all sorts of mathematical paraphernalia right out of the air. Eater they employed him as In- structor of Mathematics. Thus began the career of Professor Remick as a teacher. After resigning his position at his alma mater, he held positions of interesting importance with several of the large Western Universities and Colleges, eventually landing at K. S. A. C. as Pro fessor of Mathematics. When he assumed his present position, three teachers were able to take care of the work. At present twelve teachers, with a number of student assistants, are working over time in order to start the embryo mathematicians onward to fame.
