Nebraska's Chancellor.
With the resignation of Chancellor
AndrewB, one of the most roseate
periods In the history of the Univer
sity of Nebraska Is brought to mind
In reviewing the course of the uni
versity under hl-o administration. Yet
It does not dlBnonor tho memory of
former chancellors of tho university
to say that the past eight years havo
been years of .unexampled progress.
Rather it adds to tho honor of Chan
celjor Andrews that he has been num
bored In such a company of progres
sive and successful educators.
Throughout Its history, covering a per
iod of thirty-seven years, tho univer
sity has been under the direction of
earnest, capable men.
Founded in 1869, the first year of
genuine academic work was done In
1871, this marking the real beginning
of the pchool. From this time until
1876 Allen R. Benton was chancellor
of the University. Mr. Benton Ib still
living and resides at Indianapolis. He
has retired from active work save
bome little lecturing and devotes most
of h)s time to taking care of his per
bonal Interests. It was under Chan
cellor Benton that the first formatlvo
steps were laid uuon which has been
raised the great university which now
graces the commonwealth.
From 1876 to 1882 the affairs of the
school were under the direction of
Edmund B. Fairfield. Ho was suc
ceeded by Henry E. Hitchcock as act
ing chancellor from 1882 to 1884. Both
Chancellors Fairfield and Hitchcock
are now dead, they being tho only
ones of the men who havo directed
the university's course who are not
fctlll at work In the Interests of edu
cation. In Later Years.
Chancellor Hitchcock was followed
by Irving J. Manatt, who conducted
the affairs of the university until 1888.
Since leaving Nebraska Chancellor
Manatt has continued Jn educational
work and ho is now professor of
Greek at Brown university. Ho was
fcuccoedod by Charles E. Bessey as
acting chancellor until 1891. It was
understood at the timo that Dean Bes
sey could have been chancellor had
ho desired to accopt the position but
he preferred to remain as professor of
botany, which place he still holdB.
In' 1891 James H. Canfleld became
head of the university, remaining In
that position until 1896. Chancellor
Canfiold did a valuable work In con
ducting the Bchool through a period of
expansion. Ho is now librarian of Co
lumbia university. He was succeeded
by George Ewlng Mclean, who also'
held the office four years, resigning in
1899 to enter other fields. He Ib now
preBldonl of tho University of Iowa.
During the Interim between the res
ignation of Chancellor Maclean and
.the coming of Chancellor Andrews,
Dean Bessey acted as chancellor.
