Excerpt from Record of the Dedication of the New College of Agriculture and of the Installation of Dean Thomas Forsyth Hunt, November 20, 1912The Regents, in fashioning a policy which should assume to be in some wise commensurate with the need of the state, have determined first of all to seek an equipment in men. In making selection they have looked the country over; their question has been, - not whom they could get, but whom did they want. Five such men they have already appointed to full professorships, and these with others to follow will begin work with us either at New Year's or the coming summer. We have reckoned hereby on Californians as likely to recognize that the best is precisely what they want.The second feature of our policy involves the clear differentiation of the various forms of our work and the development of each into its proper place. Berkeley, Davis, Riverside, Whittier, Meloland, have each their place and work. They are not rivals, but each the center for a certain sort of work. Each has its own fitness. Fresno will shortly be added to the list. The distribution of the work among these centers will be discussed this evening by Director Hunt in his inaugural address.But more important than the various places are the various activities, e.g., research and the solving of problems, training in the science of agriculture, training in the arts of agriculture, provision of short courses, spreading of information through publications, farmers' institutes and the train and through correspondence, training of teachers and provision of methods for agricultural education in the schools.Experience with the school at Davis proves that the provision of education for young farmers who have passed the age when they could be expected to go through the schedules of a preparatory and a college course is a real need. This was really what the farmers wanted when agricultural education was first attempted, only we did not fully understand them.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
