  • "Archives of the University of Missouri."
  • Content of collection: original, hand-written records relating to Board of Curators deliberations and decisions during that period from the University's founding, in 1839, thorough the early post-Civil War years. It is a chronicle of many of the challenges, crises, and accomplishments of the young institution; Board actions during the pivotal years 1869 through 1875, a time when efforts to move the University away from Columbia were finally defeated. Also are many documents pertaining to the establishment of the Colleges of Agriculture and "Mechanic Arts" at Columbia and the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy in Rolla with funds provided by the Morrill Act; this latter being the first expansion of the University of Missouri into a multi-campus system; correspondence and other records relating to the years between 1876 and 1888, a period of considerable growth and building on the Columbia campus; documents, from 1889 through 1897, describing, among other events, a tragic fire which destroyed the original Academic Hall. Also the Board of Curators' successful efforts to overcome tremendous loss and rebuild the University; records of the Board's actions during the first years of the new century. Included are records of decisions made concerning the establishment of a University Hospital and expanded course offerings for the School of Medicine; the most recent documents (1914 to 1920). Some of these records pertain to construction of new classroom and laboratory buildings. Considerable mention is also made of the activities of the newly organized Extension Service of the University's Agriculture Department
