Description: Staple-bound in wraps. Light cover wear. Previous owner's name on front. Interior is clean. 43 unnumbered pages. 6 x 9 inches.
1905 pictorial bulletin for Oregon Agricultural College. At the time the school had 32 instructors and 650 students. Features pictures on every page. Includes a list of the faculty and instructors, information on the seven degrees offered, conditions of admission, the future Women's Building (to be completed before the beginning of the autumn term), a list of expenses ("Books--Freshman year--about $10.00"), and bits about the Military Department, sports, and the library.
The previous owner was Mrs. J. B. Horner [Isabelle Skipton Horner] (1859-1952). She had been the matron of the old Cauthorn, Alpha, and Waldo Halls at OAC and prior to that had taught at many schools around Oregon, including Brownsville, Salem, Roseburg, and Corvallis. Her husband, John B. Horner, served at OAC as professor of literature and history between 1891 to 1933 and also established the Horner Museum there. He was the author of multiple books, including "Oregon History and Early Literature." The title page indicates the year 1905, but the cover says this is "Bulletin No. 8--Entered December 2, 1902, at Corvallis, Oregon". Unclear if the cover was reused or misprinted, or if this is still, technically, considered bulletin No. 8.
