REPORT OF THE CHAIRMAN.



Office of the University of Cincinnati,
Cincinnati, O., Januarj' i, 1902.



To the Honorable Board of Legislation of the City of Cincinnati:

GENTI.EMEN, — It again becomes my duty as Chairman
of the Board of Directors of the University of Cincinnati to
submit a report on the administration of the affairs of the
University for the year ending December 31, 1901.

At the first meeting of the Board for the year just closed,
lield in January, Mr. William Henry Davis, Jr., was elected
as the Secretary of the Board, at a salary of $2,000 per annum,
-while Christie Wilke was elected as the Assistant Secretary,
at a salary of $1,000 per annum, which was later in the year
increased to $1,200.

The new Clerk has inaugurated many reforms in the
business details of the office, which have evoked the warmest
commendation of the City Auditor, who makes annual as
well as monthly examinations of the books and accounts
of the office.

His statement of the receipts and disbursements of the
revenues of the University for the year just ended is appended
hereto, a careful examination of which will show the exercise

1418 Report of the Chairman

on the part of the Board of a most rigid economy, consistent
with a wise and judicious administration of the internal affairs
of the University.

The report of the President of the University, which is
submitted herewith, shows the progress which has been
made at the University since his coming. Not only does
there appear an enlargement in the scope of the work done—
e, g.^ in the increase of the hours of instruction from a part
of five days per week only to the whole of every day of the
business week ; in other words, the making of education a
business instead of a pastime — and in added departments and
courses of instruction, but there also appears a substantial
increase in the number of students attending in the Academic
Department, and this in the face of the policy adopted of
furnishing instruction only to bona fide matriculated students
and who have passed successful entrance requirements.

The post-graduate courses have also been placed on a
substantial basis, and work is being done in them which
compares favorably with that done by the best educational
institutions in the land.

The Technical School of Cincinnati — which for fifteen
years was conducted in the north wing of Music Hall, and
altogether by virtue of the generosity of public-spirited citi-
zens of the city — was taken over by the Board of Directors
of the University, under an agreement with the Board of
Trustees of the school, by which it is to be continued as
a manual training high-school.

Money to erect and equip a building for the purpose on
the University grounds was raised by friends of the old school,
and when it shall have been completed the University will

have one of the most modern, capacious, and best-equipped
technical schools in the country. At the same time the
Engineering Department of the University will be provided
with a most complete laboratory for experimental work, thus
putting that department on a practical as it is already on a
scientific basis.

Much work has been done, and much more is to be done,
on the grounds of the University, which have been so long
neglected for lack of the funds with which properly to im-
prove and beautify them. A roadway is to be cut through
the grounds, starting from Clifton Avenue at its intersection
with the south line of the property and passing in front
of all the buildings of the University at the same grade
throughout its entire length. A wide central walk, built in
terraces with wide steps, is to be constructed from McMicken
Hall to Clifton Avenue.

The Van Wormer Library was opened during the summer,
and the various collections of books which perforce were
scattered through the University buildings, as well as the
library of the Historical and Philosophical Society of Ohio,
were moved into it. We have thus a splendidly -selected
library of about one hundred thousand books and pamphlets.
The beautiful building, with its graceful architecture and
handsome furnishings and equipments, is one of the glories
of the University, and will ever be a worthy and noble
monument to the generosity of the donor.

A large auditorium building is the next great need of the
University. The present auditorium is utterly inadequate
to accommodate the concourse which attends Upon the vari-
ous public functions at the University,
