should actually have been so significant a year. For it was in 1900 that Rush Rhees became the new president of the University, and the school entered upon the period of expansion that trans- formed it from a good local college into one of America's great institutions of learning. An indi- cation of Rochester's new status was offered at President Rhees' installation, present were the presidents of Colgate, Vassar, Hobart, Cornell, Saint Lawrence, Alfred, Columbia, Chicago, and Smith. Rally at the old Alumni Gymnasium In 1903 the University gained a new bene- factor-George Eastman, who gave 860,000 in that year for the laboratory, finished in 1906, which bears his name. In 1905 Andrew Carnegie gave 8100,000 for a science building, and in 1909 the Morgan Fund assured adequate education for women in the University. The story becomes one of continuous plant addition and endowment growth after this. A million dollars was given by john D. Rockefeller's General Education Board in 1912. Kendrick Hall, then used as a men's dorm, and the Art Gallery were built in 1913, the latter enlarged in 1926. Catharine Strong Hall was opened in 1914.

Early in the 1920's it became apparent that the Prince Street campus would not be able to absorb the rapidly growing men's and women's colleges. A movement to establish a new men's campus culminated in the purchase of the Oak Hill Golf Club for the new site. A ten-day drive for the raising of funds toward the financing of the new campus netted over seven and a half million dol- lars from 13,651 subscribers-another indication of the place the University had achieved in the life of the city of Rochester. George Eastman Eastman Theatre and School of Music On 21 May, 1927, ground was broken for the new River Campus. Three years later, on 10 October, 1930, the completed plant was dedicated.
