General Information
ORGANIZATON
The work of the College is organized into three de-
partments: Academic, Agricultural, Mechanic and
Domestic Arts. (See descriptive statements.)
The purpose of the institution is to prepare its
students to take up the work of life before then with
hope and efficiency. To this end, the work has been
reorganized, and, in a measure, redirected and en-
larged.
HISTORY AND LOCATION
The College was established in 1887. By constitu-
tional provision and legislative enactment it was locat-
el at Tallahassee.
By action of the State Board of education, ex-
officio Board of Trustees, it was opened October 5, 1887,
in charge of T. deS. Tucker, Principal and T. V. Gibbs,
Assistant Principal, with an attendance of fifteen pupils.
In 1891, the College was moved to its present
site, in the Suburbs of Tallahassee. By legislative en-
actment in 1905 it passed under the management of the
State Boardof Control, as one of the institutions of
gigher learning.
The College is beautifully located within easy
reach of the city. The grounds and buildings are light-
ed by both gas and electricity, and supplied with city
water. Comfortable and convenient dormitory accom-
modations have been provided for about two hundred,
(200). These dormitories are managed by the faculty,
and except by special permission of the President, all
non-resident students will be required to board in them.





Regulations 13
SUPPORT
The College is supported by annual appropriations
from the State and Federal governments. It was es-
tablished by the State as a training school for teach-
ers. This feature of its work is still maintained. (See
description of the English Normal Course.)
ADMISSION
Candidates for admission to any class must pass
satisfactory examination in the subjects of the next
lower class, or if from another school, present certificates
with transcript of records made during last year. Ap-
plicants for admission to Grammar C class must be
15 years old, and must have a fair knowledge of arith-
metic, English grammar, and descriptive geography,
and must also be able to read intelligently and to write
legibly. Applicants must be of good reputation and,
if from another institution of learning, must bring a
certificate of honorable dismissal. The registration fee
is $1.00.
REGULATIONS
The regulations of the College are few and simple,
a.))e.fil ir to the students' self-respect and personal re-
sponsibility.
Students are not allowed to loaf, to use intoxicat-
ing liquors or tobacco in any form, to gamble, or to
have or to use fire-arms.
All punishment is by demerits as follows: five de-
merits make one warning or mark; ten demerits, two
warnings, or marks; fifteen demerits, in any one ses-
sion make a student liable to suspension. Suspended
students may be reinstated by the Prudential Committee
or the President.





14 The Florida Agricultural and Mechanical College

Battalion Organization 15
RELIGIOUS SERVICES
Although the College is non-sectarian, yet it is
Christian. In addition to the daily devotions, preach-
ing and Sunday School services on the campus, there is
an active Young Men's Christian Association and a
Young Women's Christian Association.
LITERARY SOCIETIES
There are three literary societies : the Acme and the
Philomathean Debating Club for the young men; and
the Tucker for the young women.
The Grammar A and B classes have fortnightly
literary exercises.
PUBLIC RHETORICALS
The last Monday night in each month is given to
public rhetorical exercises.
BATTALION ORGANIZATION
The cadets are organized into two companies under
command of the Major of the Battalion. The Major is as-
sisted by the Adjutant. Each company is commanded by
a cadet captain and has its complement of cadet officers,
selected from those cadets who have been most exem-
plary in conduct and in soldierly bearing.
The above organization is perfected in order to
complement study. It is also intended to cultivate hab-
its of punctuality and obedience, as well as to give an
erect and manly bearing to the body and a high regard
for law and order. The officers of the battalion meet in
council once each week to discuss matters pertaining to
the Battalion organization. This council is presided over
by the Major.
There is organized, in connection with the battalion,
a band comprising fourteen instruments.





16 The Forida Agricultural and Mechanical College
UNIFORMS
As a matter of economy and of good appearance,
the students are required to weara uniform. The
young women's suit is made of blue percale and costs
two dollars ($2.00). For spring and fall, they wear a
blue ready-to-wear hat. The young men's uniform is
made of blue flannel, and with the cap, costs ten dol-
lars and fifty cents. ($10.50)
These uniforms are made in the College shops and
are sold at actual cost. The patrons are therefore urged
not to buy citizen's suits for their children, but to send
money to the President with which to buy the above uni-
form suits. Upon application, samples of the girls' uni-
form goods will be sent.
EXPENSES
There is no charge for tuition. The following is an
estimate of the necessary expenses for the full sessoin:
Board and room rent (including lights and fuel) per
month: $7 00; 35 weeks..- .-- $57 25
Washing, etc., $1 00 per month ------------ 8 00
Books and stationery, about.----------------. 5 00
Incidental fee (for ordinary medicine, not medical)
attention) ------------------------------- 1 00
Total ...-..-- ----- $71 25
OPPORTUNITY TO REDUCE EXPENSES
A limited number of earnest young men and young
women will be allowed to work out a part of their
board'and laundry expenses. Applications for this
privilege must be made in writing and accepted b, fore
arrival. All extra work performed by students will be
rated at five cents per hour, and placed to their credit.
All money earned by students in the performance
of labor in the institution will be retained to be used
only for defraying their expenses while in attendance
here at College.





Rules Regarding Deficient Records 17
All students are required to work one hour a day
(or its equivalent) for the College without remuneration.
RULES REGARDING DEFICIENT RECORDS
(Ooverning the High and Senior Schools only)
All records below 60 in any subject are deficient. A
deficient record is a failure if below 50 and a condition
if above 50.
All failures and conditions must be removed before
a student can have advanced catalogue classification.
A failure or a condition in any subject will prevent
graduation.
A failure is removable only by repeating the sub-
ject in class as soon as scheduled in program. Th s sub-
ject takes precedence over all other subjects.
A condition is removable by special examination
which is given within two weeks after the beginning of
each semester. A student will be allowed to take only two
special examinations to remove a condition. If a student
fails in both examinations, the condition becomes a
failure remove( ble only by repeating the subject in class
as sooyn as scheduled in program.
An industrial condition is removable by the student's
performing such work as is designated by the instructor,
An extra special examination will be granted the
first week in May to candidates for graduation for
removal of conditions incurred during the Senior Year.
A passing record in any subject becomes deficient
by the withdrawal of a student and is ranked as a condi-
tion, provided the student takes special instruction in
the subject under some one approved by the President;
otherwise it is ranked as a failure. This special in-
struction mast cover the work done by the student's
class during his absence.
Four is the maximum number of academic subjects a
student may take during any semester including repeated
subjects.

The College offers to its pupils a four years' course
in systematic piano forte work by which the students are
to be graded and promoted. This course is so planned
as to enable the student to play good music well, and
with the addition of the Elements of Harmony to be
able to enter a conservatory after having completed the
work here laid down. At the completion of this course,
certificates of proficiency will be given.
The students in music are required to attend the
recitals of which one is held each month. These exercises
are of two-fold value, namely: giving pupils practice
in playing before others, and granting them the rare
opportunity of listening to well prepared music from the
best composers.
Students taking music must practice at least one
hour each day.
Instuction is given at the reasonable charge of two
dollars and twenty-five cents ($2.25) for eight lessons

VOCAL MUSIC
The purpose of this course is to give the student an
elementary knowledge of sight singing.
The student is first allowed to sing by note, and is
led to observe differences in pitch, in tone, and relative
duration of sounds made. This is followed by the use
of sound names and an accurate distinction of each.
Daily drills are given. After this has been accomplished
a study of various keys begins.
This course is given to members of the Grammar
School. High School and Senior School students are
allowed to join the Musical Union where they receive
special instruction in sipht reading and in singing the
best standard musical works. The Soifeggio system is
used.





THE MECHANIC AND DOMESTIC ARTS COURSES
In the courses in the industries, it is the aim to give
the students some knowledge of the fundamental prin-
ciples of one or more of the lines of hand work as a bas-
is for more extensive information and a larger meas-
ure of skill in that particular kind of skilled labor which
they may select as a means of livelihood after leaving
this institution.
Every student must take instruction in one of the
industries unless excused by the President.
In assigning the young men to the various indus-
ries, the President and Director of the Mechanic Arts
Department use their discretion, but at the same time,
the student is allowed some degree of choice. In the
case of the young women, those who are members of the
four Senior School classes and the third year class of
the High School are allowed to take dressmaking or
millinery or business instruction, while the members
of the five classes lower than the third year High
School are assigned to cooking and plain sewing.
The courses in these last mentioned subjects are so
arranged that ,every young woman receives some in-
struction in both of these important phases of work no
matter how short her stay here may be.
,The time devoted to the industries varies frori'for-
ty-five minutes to two and a half hours per day, : i
In all divisions some study is made of the sources
from which the materials used are obtained as well as
their c )n p ;iio'l and processes of manufacture.
Whenever possible in the mechanic arts courses the
student makes his own drawings and works from them
or works from blue prints furnished him.
No special certificate is issued for work done in
theMechanic and Domestic Arts Department courses,
but a statement as to the nature and amount of work
done in any division will be given to any student by the
instructor upon application.





36 The Florida Agricultural and Mechanical College
MANUAL TRAINING
This is a course in elementary wood-working occu-
pying one year.
The problems of construction are such as require the
use of the knife, plane, saw, hammer, chisel etc, in
their material solution, and are worked out from the
students own sketches.
This course is given to young men of the B and C
Grammar classes except those studying Agriculture and
precedes the work in the various industries the College
has in operation.
The result is the preparation of the young men both
mentally and physically to carry on the trade work more
satisfactorily than if they had not had this preliminary
training, for they bring to the work at the trades cor-
rect mechanical ideals and some skill, both of which are
necessary to a satisfactory completion of any of the in-
dustrial courses.
MECHANICAL DRAWING
The work; in mechanical drawing is designed to
give the student .iich a knowledge of tie subject as will
enable him to make err*ect working drawings for his
own use in the shop and to read the drawings and blue
prints made by others.
The course begins with simple working drawings
which are made from freehand sketches. The sketches
are drawn and the measurements taken from the objects
to be represented, by the students themselves. Later in
the course the student draws from the sketches of others,
and finally takes up the work of designing.
As far as possible, the class of objects from which
the student draws is determined by the industry at
which he works ; for instance, the drawing of young
men who work at carpentry tends toward the planning
of buildings, that of the young men working at wheel-
wrighting is directed toward carriage drafting and
designing.





The Mechanic and Domestic Arts Courses 37
BLACKSMITHING
The course in blacksmithing is intended to cover
the field of general blacksmithing operations and gives
someinstuction in the ironing of vehicles and shoeing of
horses.
At the beginning of the course study is made of fire
making, and incidentally some attention is given to the
characteristics of coals, the construction of forges and
chimneys and the action of fans and bellows.
Thereafter the student is introduced to the more
simple operations of drawing out, upsetting, bending.
twisting, punching, cutting off, and welding as used in
th3 shaping of staples, hooks, and collars and the mak-
ing of chains.
The above mentioned work occupies the time for the
first year. During the second year, the young black-
s nith co-operates with the wheelwright through the
ironing of the wooden parts of wheelbarrows, push-
carts, wagons, buggies, surries and phaetons.
Vehicle ironing is continued for a portion of the
third year of the course while the remainder of the
year is devoted to the elements of horse shoeing.
Advanced horseshoeing and general repairing con-
stitute the work of the fourth year.
CARPENTRY AND CABINET-MAKING
This course is intended to give the student some
knowledge of the principles underlying house and shop
carpentry and a moderate amount of practice in apply-
ing these principles to some of the representative prob-
lems with which the workers at this trade are most
frequently meeting.
At the beginning of the study, the problems set for
the student are designed to be such as will, through an
appeal to his school or home life interests, enlist his
best efforts, so that by the end of the year he will have
achieved sufficient success in his work to encourage him
to continue the work in this division.





38 The Florida Agricultural and Mechanicai College
The work just mentioned is also given to the first
year wheelwrights.
The second year is given to the study of and practice
in erecting simple frame buildings, beginning with fram-
ing and then taking up door and window frame construc-
tion, outside finishing, floor laying, inside finishing and
stair-building.
Following this, in the third year, the time is devot-
ed to cabinet-making, the more simple pieces of house
furniture being selected for this phase of the work.
The fourth year's work is a study of the first prin-
ciples of those trades, which, together with carpentry,
are employed in the erection of buildings, and a brief
consideration of the work of the architect in their
design and in the superintendence of -their construction.
PAINTING
The division of painting affords an excellent oppor-
tunity to those desiring to become acquainted with the
more important phases of the painter's trade.
A study is made of the painter's brushes and other
tools; the source and manufacture of pigments; oils,
driers, varnishes, stains, and the mixing of paints.
Colors and the laws of harmony and contrast are given
consideration and practically applied in the painting of
vehicles and the interiors and exteriors of houses.
Glazing, including cutting, frosting, staining, and
embossing glass, and sign writing are also taught.
PRINTING
The College printer is equipped with two Chandler
and Price Gordon job presses and enough printing ma-
terial to give the typographer quite satisfactory notions
as to the operation of a first class job office.
The course of study and practice includes, in the
first year, the learning of the cases, simple composition,
the names, care, and use of the more common type





The Mechanic and Domestic Arts Courses 39
faces and printer's materials. During the following
year attention is given to job work (in colors, fancy,
and plain), primary stock cutting, and estimating. Im-
position, job composition, estimating, and stock cutting
are studied during the third year.
The student in this division has the opportunity of
doing quite a variety of work, since all the College
printing done during the eight months session is the
work of the young men of this division.
TAILORING
This division of the College's work is designed to
give the students such knowledge of the tailor's trade
as will enable them with little experience in a merchan-
tile shop, to become competent journeymen.
Instruction is given in the making of pockets and
other details before the construction of finished gar-
ments is undertaken. Trousers, vests, and coats are
taken up in the order of their difficulty and a study made
of shop economy in cutting. Cleaning and repairing
are also given due attention, since this class of work
constitutes a large part of that done in every tailor
shop.
The John J. Mitchell Standard System of Draftiny
is used.
WHEELWRIGHTING
The first year's work in this industry is identical
with that of the same period of the carpentary course.
During the succeeding years the student comes into
contact more specifically with wheelwrighting and the
use of tools peculiar to the vehicle-making trade. This
is accomplished through the shaping of spokes and fel-
loes and the subsequent building of wheels, seats, bodies
and running gear of wheelbarrows, push carts and bug
gies and carriages of various descriptions.
All the vehicles used by the College are built con-
jointly by the young menrof the wheelwrighting and
blacksmithing divisions.





40 The Florida Agricultural and Mechanical College
COOKING
The aim of this course is to teach the best methods
of preparing and serving food so as to make even the
simplest dish appetizing and palatable. Thorough
training is given also in household economy of the
homes of families of moderate means.
Included in this course of study are: the selection
of food materials with regard to quality, food value and

processes in washing and ironing body, table, and bed
linen.
DRESSMAKING
The object of this phase of the College's work is to
give a thorough knowledge of the principles of dress-
making with as much practice as time will allow. It is
valuable to those who wish to acquire the ability to
make their own dresses or to superintend the work
done for them. It is excellent preliminary training for
those who intend to take up dressmaking as a vocation.
The ground is covered in three terms of three months
each.

THE AGRICULTURAL COURSES
It is the aim of this department to introduce the
science underlying practical agriculture, and make it so
interesting and vital to the student's daily life as to win
their respect for the farm and what is to be found on
the farm.
The school farm of 180 acres is well stocked and pro-
videJ with implements, and a splendid experience in
conducting a farm in the most improved manner is given.
The courses are arranged in such a way as to give
each class of the College some agricultural training, in
ord3r to iinprass its importance upon the students.
It is the plan and hope that those who graduate from
' te College will be so well informed in General Agricul-
ture that they will be able to teach it in the public schools
of the State. It is also the aim of the department to
improve and enlarge the theoretical and practical work
soas to produce first class farmers-men and women
possessing clear understanding of the soil and its
products.
Appropriate reference books, reports from experi-
ment stations and from the Department of Agriculture
at Washington are used from time to time in addition
to the regular text-books.
