On March 25, 1907, Governor George R. Carter signed a bill establishing the College of

ln 1911, the College was transferred from its original site near Thomas Square to Manoa
Valley, where Hawaii Hall, its first permanent building was erected. It was during this year that a
legislative act changed the name ot the institution to College of Hawaii.

Dean, then president of the College, observed that "the study of history, government, ethics, and
related subiects was essential." This was the beginning of a suggestion that a full-t1edged univers-
ity be instituted.
