University of Florida, Formerly the
Agricultural College.

This institution was founded under the name of Florida Agricul-
tural College, upon the Federal Act in 1862, and, later recognized and
provided for by State legislation. The Federal Act provided for the ap-

University of Florida

portionment of 30,000 acres of land for each senator and representative
in Congress to which the State was entitled under the census of 1860.
This Federal Act of '62 provided that all moneys derived from the sale
of such lands should be invested in stocks of the United States, of oth-
er states, or other safe stocks, yielding not less than five per cent upon
the par value of such stock, and that the money so invested constitute a
perpetual fund, the capital of which should remain forever undiminished.
It further provided for the support of at least one college, where the
leading object, without excluding other scientific and classical studies,
and including military tactics, should be to teach such branches of
learning as are related to agricultural and mechanic arts.
The Act defined certain obligations that the State should assume in
accepting those land grants. The State having availed herself of the Act
of 1862, received 90,000 acres of land, and, by the Act of the Legisla-
ture, of 1870, supplemented by the Act of 1872, founded the Florida
Agricultural College.
In 1873 a site for this college was selected in Alachua County, but
for some reason the college was not at that time organized, and nothing
further came of these acts. In 1875 another site was selected at Eau
Gallie, and a temporary college edifice was erected. No educational
work having been accomplished at Eau Gallie, the Trustees, in 1878,
took steps to decide upon another more suitable situation. In 1883,
Lake City was selected, and the citizens having given to the institution
100 acres of land and $15,000, the college was established there.
In 1884, the doors of the institution were thrown open to students.
By Act of Congress, in 1887, the Florida Agricultural Experiment Sta-
tion was established as a department of the institution.
In 1903, the Legislature changed the title of the Florida Agricul-
tural College to the University of Florida, which remained the title up to
1905, when the Legislature abolished all the state institutions and estab-
lished the present University of Florida, and the Florida State College
for Women.
The following male graduates of the Florida Agricultural College
and the former University of Florida have accepted corresponding de-
grees from the present University of Florida, and are now alumni of this

Florida State College, Formerly Known as the Semit
nary West of the Suwannee River.

The history of this institution, like that of the East Florida Semi-
nary, stretches through a period of practically half a century. These
Seminaries represented the first step taken by the State of Florida, in
the year 1851, towards the establishment of schools for higher educa-
tion. The Legislature, on January 24, 1851, passed an act which pro-
vided that two seminaries of learning should be established; one east,
the other west of the Suwannee River.
The seminary west of the Suwannee River was located at Tallahas-
see, where there was at that time what was known as the Florida Insti-
tute, owned by the municipality. On November 24, 1855, the Board of
Trustees of the Florida Institute, in behalf of the City of Tallahassee,
offered $10,000 as an inducement for the location of this seminary in
the Capitol City; also, offering to turn over to the State the buildings
and grounds of the Florida Institute.
This offer was accepted by the State. On the 27th of March,
1858, the Board of Managers chosen for the Seminary West of the Su-
wannee River took charge of the property of the Florida Institute, and
enlarged the plant by further purchases. In February, 1857, the Semi-
nary was opened to students, and from that time forward, the institution
was in continual operation up to 1905, save during a few months in 1862
and '63, when it was suspended. Up to October, 1882, males and
females were taught in separate classes, but on this date the institution
became thoroughly co-educational.
In 1862, the Governor of Florida was authorized to create a Board
of Education. To this Board was granted the power to organize and
maintain a State university. However, owing to a lack of means, the
Board of Education limited the college curriculum mainly to courses in-
tended for a general education. But, in 1883, an effort was made to
organize, and an act of the Legislature recognized, the University of

University of Florida

Florida. A Department of Medicine, and a Law Department was added
to the West Florida Seminary, which was then known as The Literary
College of the University of Florida. Owing to the lack of means for
the support of this more ambitious project, and, also, owing to the fact
that soon thereafter schools for technical training were established, this
association was soon dissolved.
The support of the college was derived mainly from State appro-
priations and interest from funds derived from the sale of 30,000 acres
of land. The institution was also the residuary legatee of Justice J. D.
Westcott, of Leon County. Judge Westcott left the institution $45,000
in bonds and about $15,000 in real estate.
The West Florida Seminary officially became the Florida State
College by recognition of the Legislature in 1901.
From the beginning of its history in 1901, it was the aim of this
college to maintain a high standard of scholarship. It is to be regretted
that the records have been lost, and that no list of graduates prior to
1891 can be found. The following male graduates of the Florida State
College have received corresponding degrees from this institution and
are now alumni of the University of Florida:

The East Florida Seminary.

The Act of the Legislature of January 24th, 1851, provided "that
two seminaries of learning shall be established, one upon the east and
the other upon the west side of the Suwannee River, the, purpose of
which shall be the instruction of persons, both male and female, in the
art of teaching all the branches that pertain to a good common school
education; and next to give instruction in Mechanical Arts, in Hus-
bandry, and Agricultural Chemistry, the fundamental laws, and in regard
to the rights and duties of citizenship." For the support of these sem-
inaries the United States soon after the purchase of Florida from Spain,
granted a township of public land in each of the districts of East and
West Florida. Owing to the uncertainty about titles to land and trou-
ble with Indians, nothing was done before Florida became a State to-
wards the location and organization of these seminaries. In 1853, four
years before the West Florida Seminary was opened at Tallahassee, the
Seminary provided for east of the Suwannee River was located at Ocala.
In 1866 the Seminary was moved to Gainesville and occupied a wooden
building, which was destroyed by fire in 1883. A new brick structure
was promptly erected by the people of Gainesville, and the East Florida
Seminary occupied this building from November 29, 1883, up to the
time of the passage of the Buckman Bill.
In 1879 a Normal School Department was added, and in 1881
Military Drill was introduced. Soon after the introduction of the mili-
tary feature, the Legislature appropriated funds for the erection of bar-
racks for the cadets. The Legislature of 1901 made appropriation for
the purchase of grounds and the erection of a girls' dormitory. For a
little more than half a century the East Florida Seminary existed as the
first institution of higher learning established in the State. Following is
a list of graduates of this institution as far back as any records exist:

South Florida Military College, Formerly South Flor,
ida Military Educational Institute.

This institution was first recognized by the Legislature of Florida
in May, 1895, when an Act was passed making an appropriation for the
maintenance at the institution of one cadet from each of the 32 sena-
torial districts at the expense of the State.
The Legislature of Florida in 1897 amended this Act and increased
the appropriation from the State in order to provide for the maintenance
at the expense of the State of one cadet from each of the forty-five
counties then existing in Florida. The Act further provided that these
scholarships should be awarded by the Senators and Representatives of
each county upon competitive examination of the successful candidates.
In 1901 the property of the South Florida Military Educational In-
stitute was bought by the State and additional appropriations were grant-
ed for the enlarging and repairing of buildings. In 1903 the Legisla-
ture passed an Act amending the charter of the institution by changing
the name to the South Florida Military College, and placing the insti-
tution under a special Board of Trustees, to be appointed by the Gov-
ernor. This Act of the Legislature broadened the scope of the institu-
tion, and provided the appropriations needed for the college to meet its
larger responsibilities.
The college was for men only and the following is a list of the

The Florida State Normal School.

The Constitution of 1885 provided for the establishment, main-
tenance and management of normal schools, not to exceed two, as the
interest of public education may demand.
The Legislature of 1887 entrusted to the State Board of Education
the duty of establishing the two normal schools provided for, one for
white and one for colored teachers. DeFuniak Springs, in Walton
County, was selected as the location of the State Normal School for
white students, and here it was opened in the fall of 1887. Prof. H.
N. Felkel was president of the school from its founding until 1893. He
was succeeded by Dr. C. P. Walker, who served four years, and then
Prof. C. L. Hayes was elected president and served six years, after
which Prof. H. E. Bennett was president up to the time the institution
was abolished by the Buckman Act. It was the chief function of this
Normal School to set standards of common school education, to afford
new and better methods of instruction, and to study the pedagogic as-
pects and applications of the various subjects taught in the public
In 1889 a Model School was organized, and the system of obser-
vation and practice work was inaugurated. The professional courses of
study included four years of the Theory and Art of Teaching, Psycholog-
ical School Manual, School Organization and Systems, History of Edu-
cation, Educational Theories, with careful observation of model teach-
ing, and regular practice under the eye of the critic teacher. Manual
Training, Singing, Drawing, Nature Study, School Gardening, and the
like were also taught. Following is the list of male graduates who have
received the degree of L. I. (Licentiate of Instruction):
