About

          This project has been constructed and presented in a typical linear format. The data presented follows a chronological order, beginning in 1862 and ending in 1890. Following a chronological order, the process of land endowment ranges from the top-down, from the federal level to the university. It is suggested to follow this path if the reader wishes to best understand the subject matter. Yet the very nature of the internet and digital navigation allows for the typical historical narrative to take many different forms. The presentation of this project is no exception as each element is designed to stand-alone. Users may freely access information in whatever order they so desire.
