Excerpt from A Sketch of Dickinson College, Carlisle, Penn'a: Including the List of Trustees and Faculty From the Foundation, and a More Particular Account of the Scientific DepartmentWhilst America has made history rapidly, it has been careless in its preservation. The celebration of the National Centennial especially directed attention to this fact. Colleges are by no means exceptions to this general statement. Few of them have at command the material for a satisfactory history. Many of the facts concerning the earlier history of Dickinson College have been lost. A few have recently been rescued, together with many of National and State history, from the paper-stock of a rag-man's loft, and there are many scattered documents of equal interest. This little sketch of the College, written under heavy press of other duties, currente calamo, is in no sense a complete history, and no regard has been paid, in its preparation, to symmetrical treatment. But fragmentary and incomplete as it is, it is, perhaps, more of a history of the College than has as yet appeared, and will serve, at least, as a nucleus around which to accumulate the material for a more satisfactory account of the College, perhaps by the date of its Centennial - 1883. An Alumni Record, containing the prominent facts in the life of each Alumnus would, in that connection, be of the highest interest, and if undertaken in time, with the hearty cooperation of all the friends of the College, might be completed by the date mentioned.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
