OREGON AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. An institution supported by the state, situated at Corvallis, Ore. It was founded in 1885 and now includes fifteen large buildings and has an enrollment in all courses of 4,158. Instruction is given in forestry, agriculture, engineering, mining, commerce, and home economics. Like other western state universities its income is largely derived from the proceeds of the sale of lands ceded to it by the State. This source of income plus the State appropriation yields about $800,000 annually. The college possesses a library of about 30,000 volumes.
