Excerpt from The University of Michigan, the Sources of Its Power and Its Success: An Address Delivered at the Annual Commencement of the University of Michigan, June 25, 1896

Mechanical Engineering; the tsical Laboratory; the Anatomical Laboratory; the two buildings for heating plants; the Library Building; the Tappan Hall; the Gymnasium; the enlargement of the Law Building; the enlargement of the Engineering Building; and the repeated~ enlargements of the Chemical Laboratory. Other Universities have made larger expenditures, but it may safely be said that no one has erected or enlarged so many buildings, or enclosed so much of the space of heaven for the money.

The ingenuity of the clear mother during this period has been sorely taxed. So faithfully has she obeyed the Scriptural injunction to increase and multiply, that she has not only required new clothes for her new children, but she has had to turn over the old'garments from one child to another, taking in a tuck here, letting out a seam there, setting a patch on the part that is most worn, and putting in supports where there have been signs of giving way. The result has been an educational wardrobe of great usefulness, even if, it has not always been in accord with the latest fashion. But fashion every where seems to be the prerogative of small families. The necessities of this very rapid growth remind one of the necessities of Fred erick William I. You remember that when some. Benevolent ladies presented him with a gorgeous dressing gown, the old king stuffed it in the stove, declaring that he had no use for anything but useful duffel. Surely the University has not been tempted to imitate this royal example by burning any costly gift, but something of his spirit has been an ever present necessity. 'i he State would not have her sons and daughters sent away for want of shelter; nor would she have them packed like sardines in the old boxes. With the means at the disposal of the University, the problem has been the mathe matical one of determining how to enclose the largest possible amount of space with the smallest possible amount of money.
