Excerpt from Proceedings of the Fifteenth Anniversary of the University Convocation of the State of New York: Held July 9th, 10th and 11th, 1878; Being Part IV of the Ninety Second Annual Report of the Regents of the UniversityAt a meeting of the Regents of the University, held on the 9th day of January, 1863, the reports of colleges and academies, and their mutual relations, being under consideration, the following resolution was unanimously adopted:Resolved, That it is expedient to hold annually, under the direction of this board, a meeting of officers of colleges and academies, and that a committee be appointed to draft a programme of business for the proposed meeting, to fix the time and place, and to make such other arrangements as they may deem necessary.The committee of arrangements on the part of the Regents were Chancellor Pruyn, Governor Seymour, Mr. Benedict, Mr. Hawley, Mr. Clinton, Mr. Perkins and Secretary Wool worth.The meeting was held according to appointment, on the 4th and 5th days of August, 1863. Chancellor Pruyn briefly stated the objects entertained by the Regents, which were mainly "to consider the mutual relations of colleges and. academies, and to promote, as largely as possible, the. cause of liberal education in our State. While it is a part of the duty of the Regents of the University to visit the fourteen literary colleges, and more than 200 academies subject to their supervision, it is obvious that this cannot be done as frequently as desirable, and that some such method as is now proposed, whereby teachers may compare views with each other, and with the Regents, and discuss methods of instruction and general modes of procedure, is alike practicable and necessary."A law enacted more than three-fourths of a century ago was cited, by which the University was organized and clothed with power similar to those held by the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford, in England. The University of the State of New York, though generally regarded as a legal fiction, is, in truth, a grand reality.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
