The Financial Condition and Present Needs of Columbia College : A Statement Adopted by the Trustees of the College, and Ordered to Be Printed, April 2, 1883 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Financial Condition and Present Needs of Columbia College: A Statement Adopted by the Trustees of the College, and Ordered to Be Printed, April 2, 1883 The Trustees of Columbia College have, for the past twenty or twenty-five years, been engaged in the endeavor to give such expansion to the system of in struction in the college, as to provide for the city of New York educational advantages equal to any to be found elsewhere. That an institution of learning of the highest grade should exist in this great city appears to them to be due no less to the dignity of the city itself than to the magnitude of the interests involved. The success of the efforts hitherto made toward the attain ment of this end has been manifested in so large an increase in the attendance upon the various departments of the college as to have imposed upon the Trustees the necessity of incurring a burden of expense in the erection of additional buildings, such as to paralyze for the present, and probably for a long time to come, the power of further improvement. The ideal of a perfectly appointed university, which it has been their ambition and their hope to see here fulfilled, must therefore remain for an indefinite period, and perhaps perma hently, unattained, unless the deficiency of their re sources shall be supplied by the liberality of the public spirited citizens of New York.
