The State School of Science I IK history of tin Stale School of Science go s hark to the clays of the ('onstitutionnl Convention, when an Academy of Science was located at Wahpcton and endowed with a substantial land grant. Only a few young people were going to school in the JM)'s hut with the opening of the new century, when the claim shacks of the homesteaders had given place to more comfortable homes, and these in turn were beginning to he replaced by the filler dwellings of a people who had lamed the frontier and paid the mortgages, the new generation of native-horn citizens desired better and higher training. Then, like the true child of the great northwest, the school opened its doors with no traditions to cramp its possibilities, but with the ideal of service to the people in return for the opportunity to work out its own destiny. The Legislature of l!MK{ authorized the opening of the school, (inventor White appointed (I. W. Morton and W. K. Purdon of Wahpcton, »l. II. Movius of Lidgerwood, George Cook of Page, and It. B. Cox of Wimbledon as the first hoard of trustees. A bond issue had been authorized by the legislature, but the Supreme Court declared this act unconstitutional. So. in rented rooms, the first faculty consisting of Karl (J. Burch, President (1903-11)10) and Professor of Zoology (1903-10121 and Physics: S. A. Skinner. Chemistry and Botany, (1903-1900), and Theodore Lindquist. Mathematics and Astronomy (1903-1907), opened the school. September 22, 1903. Four courses of study were offered: general science, electrical and mechanical engineering, teachers of science, and medical preparatory. In the first year the enrollment was sixtv-two students. In HUM. Mrs. Skinner was added to the faculty as teacher of drawing, and the course for teachers of science was discontinued. The year 15IOi brought many changes to the school. A building for the mechanical shops was erected, and the Bed River Vallex ("niversity sold its campus, building and equipment to the School of Science. The first summer session was held this year, and a three year preparatory course and a wider college course were added. Three professors were added to the faculty: Frank K. Moll, (1 90.V1909» for Modern Languages. Carroll I). Clipfcll, (190A-) for Mechanic Arts and Knginccring and Alice M. Sleeper, (190.7-1913) as teacher of Knglish and Bookkeeping. Also in the year an addition was built to the shop for the forge room. In 1900 a course of bookkeeping and stenography was added and Mr. Brock way was added to the faculty as teacher of the commercial subjects. In 1907 an extensive addition was built to the machine shop and used for some time as the gymnasium. A new statement of the purpose of the school was enacted into law by the legislature which has been the guiding principle of the school since that time, 'flic statement “the chief object being the training of skilled workmen in the most practical phases of applied science” has been interpreted to mean the giving of such training as will help the student to at once take his place in I lie industrial and social life of the community mi which he lives.

Til plans ami purposes of the school have followed a natural evolution as the demands have shown the way. The practical type of education has always been accorded special attention. Following the interpretation of the organic law for its crcatioii it has endeavored to live up to the ideals of a junior polytechnic school. 'I'lie courses have keen kept in balance by re |iiiring some cultural studios with the special arts. Itelicving that it is more profitable to learn to pound iron than to pound sand a course in iron was early introduced. The danger of going too much to "blooming ’ skirts, merry-widows and Welsh rarebits led the authorities to put in a thorough course in domestic science. To know how to draw sustenance best from “Mother Nature” a course in agriculture was offered the student, and that one could get a living as well as to look wise a line of trade courses were incorporated into the curriculum, 'flu-future of the school will develop the special lines of instruction that arc most needed in a great growing commonwealth in which the dignity of labor and the worth of man are reeongized in full measure.
