This alone would be enough to make l9l2 one of the most important years in the history of the university. But the year was made even more memorable by the fact that the erection of two new buildings on the Campus was begun during this time. Of these, one, the first section of the dormitory for men, Kendrick Hall, has been completed, and the other, the Art Gallery, is still in the process of construction. These new buildings are important additions to the Campus, but still the raising of the million. dollars and more was the greatest event of the year. The need for additional funds to properly carry on the work of the university had been growing continuously for the previous twelve years. There was a great increase in the num- ber of students, but although the number of buildings to accom- modate them had increased, other facilities had not.

From the other point of view, as some of the alumni have expressed it, "the creation of separate colleges for -men and women will be of great advantage to all our students, and, in particular, ,it will strengthen the men's college both in numbers and efliciencyf' The accomplish- ment of this second object would necessitate further additions to the faculty, and for these the income of another quarter of a million dollars would be required, and one hundred thousand more for the building, as was later added. The great purpose of' raising one million dollars was publicly announced as the aim of President Rhees and the trustees in the I Q l H i I . 1 , , l", ,... , ..,,..,.. - pf lt f i li , ,Y , 1 l t,...-- . , - .. .nn 'K'-"'.'.', , 1,. 7 It 7159 .R .4 ' TN iight -1" 7 l if Li R wp w v'v,i5'6"-?'5'i fmlgu-hfvyfv 1 BQJAAQAQK A 49 .rift ..i.l' Gaia. 15 x i QKFN' 'Y Y
