Excerpt from Historical and Statistical Record of the University of the State of New York During the Century From 1784 to 1884: With an Introductory Sketch
The compilation of this volume was undertaken in connection with the celebration, in 1884, of the centennial anniversary of the establishment of the University of the State of New York. It was designed to comprise a full record of the educational work of the Board of Regents, and of the several institutions and trusts which by law had been placed in its care. The execution of this task was intrusted to Dr. Franklin B. Hough, who by natural taste, by his long experience in such investigations, and his familiarity with the sources of information to be explored, was possessed of all the quali fications for its successful accomplishment. Amid the sorrow with which we make record of his death, * we must note it as a fortunate circumstance that his labors on this volume were substantially com pleted before he was attacked by the fatal illness which ended his life. The little that remained to be done, in the adjustment of per tions of the prepared material, and in the correction of the proofs, has been done by the hands of those whom he had trained to such tasks. And though there is little need for such apology, I am charged by those upon whom this work was SO sadly devolved to ask for it such consideration as may be due to the fact that a part of it lacked the critical revision Of him who had planned and written it. To those who desire to investigate the early history of education in this State, and trace the broad stream to its small beginnings, the present compilation, drawn from original and authentic sources, must always possess a special interest and value.
