Abstract
  • In 1868, the Oregon legislature designated Corvallis College as the state's land-grant agricultural school that would eventually become Oregon State University. The university was established as part of the 1862 Morrill Act, which granted states 30,000 acres to promote education in “agriculture and the mechanic arts.” William G. Robbins reveals Oregon State University's sectarian ties to the Southern-sympathizing Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and its evolution from a “small, struggling academy” to “one of seventy-six land-grant colleges and universities … designated as land grants in 1890.” According to Robbins, “Oregon State University is part of a proud and distinctively American institution” that will soon celebrate its sesquicentennial as a land-grant school.
