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. The annual income was not only inadequate for the expenditures as they were, but there was also the need of more fully recompensing the members of the faculty for their faithful services and of securing new teachers to assist in departments already overloaded. To meet these requirements the income from three quarters of a million dollars was necessary. But progress was not to stop there, for there was another project in view. The plan had been formed of establishing a co-ordinate college for women, to be separate from, but in every way equal to, the college for men, This, involving the erection of a new academic building, would give the women an opportunity for college life and effective education distinctly superior to any possible under the present conditions. 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

Three-fifths of this amount . 1 3 had already been pledged, upon the condition that the balance be raised before the expiration of the year. Alumni and friends who 5:-N.. A+- J .lil - 9.11. 1-.X . n , , , .V '-iii' h ,..,. J, V had not already subscribed now came forward and responded generously. By the time of the 1912 Commencement the total pledged was within one hundred thousand dollars of the original million mark. The amount previously fixed upon as the goal was then raised by one hundred thousand dollars more, to cover the cost of the proposed academic building, not included in the Hrst total. Wfhen the linal time limit for the securing of the million was reached at the end of the year that much was certain, and also more than half of the additional sum. Further, a site for the women's academic building has been provided by the gift to the university of the property at the corner of Prince Street and University avenue, diagonally across from the Campus. The success which has attended this project has been so com- plete that the significance of it has perhaps not been fully realized by all the alumni, undergraduates, and friends of Rochester. This enterprise can well be classed as the greatest ever undertaken by the university since its establishment. A comparison of figures can show to some degree its real significance. The productive endow- ment has been increased from S945,000 to 31,945,000 This increase makes possible, first of all, the proper rewarding of the men who Qi.':,.' 1 , iff . jx . fm Quill',am.- 5- 1 ,.4.1xa.- ,V ,W':ti P.

This is really of greatest consequence, for the college is made, not by its grounds and buildings, but by the strong men who are its faculty. l, To them first consideration and provision is fittingly due. The other R.,.ft,,lf' phase of this enterprise, which is possibly of wider general interest, the creation of the co-ordinate college for women, will meet the need which has been growing gradually more apparent since women were first admitted upon a co-educational basis in 1900. The suc- cess of the entire undertaking, brought about under the thorough fijlt and conscientious guidance of Dr. Rhees, makes possible the "more perfect discharge of the obligations of the university to all its stu- dents and to the community." Coming almost co-incident with the beginning of this move- qll ment to double the productive endowment were the announcements about the two new buildings. The completion of the first section of the proposed dormitory system marks a step towards broadening il, the field from which Rochester can draw men as students, in pro- viding accommodations for them. It is expected that Kendrick Hall will not only lead to a greater number of out-of-town students lt' in this way, but may also add to the spirit and life of the college. 1,1 The other new building, the Art Gallery erected by Mrs. James .l -i f -.. . . m ....., , ,,,. f:iLEI5lTF....'913.-l'1..'-Q
