46 INDEX. — The Library — IN a preliminary report made by President Chadbourne, before the open- ing of the college, we find these words : " The very liberal offers made by Amherst College in regard to the use of its library, give the students of the Agricultural College advantages which they could not have for many years from the institution itself. " It was confiidentlv expected that these advantages would prove adec uate for the needs of the students. But it was soon found that practical difficulties lay in the way. Distance from town and the interruption of afternoon duties, prevented attendance during hbrary liours, and it was felt that a library nearer home must be secured. With characteristic energy, Colonel Clark set himself to the task of securing donations of books. By his personal efforts during the first three years, gifts of over 600 volumes were made, besides $150 in money. Promi- ' nent among the donors were Albert Fearing of Boston, Allen W. Dodge of Hamilton, H. K. Oliver of Salem, and Samuel Batchelder of Cambridge, whose gifts in the respective departments of horticulture, agriculture, api- culture, and the arts, formed the nucleus of the valuable collections of to-day. These books were placed in the reading-room of old South College, under the care of a student, but no attempt was made at classification, and no catalogue was prepared. The income from the fund generously provided by the Messrs. Hills of Amherst, for the maintenance of the botanical department, now became available, and from time to time, books pertaining to the studies of that dej)artment were added by purchase.

In 1875, a " Catalogue of the libraries of the Massachusetts Agricultural College, and its literary societies " was prepared, the former numbering 1,099 volumes, including its duplicates, and the latter about 600. No attempt was made, however, to increase its efficiency till the
