Excerpt from Association of American Agricultural and Experiment Stations: Report of the Executive Committee on the Amendment of the Constitution; Berkeley, California, August 11th, 12th, 13th, 1915
Before adjournment at San Francisco a Committee on the revision of the Constitution was appointed. This Committee reported at the Fourteenth Annual Convention, held at New Haven, November 13-15, 1900, with but two amendments, one referring to the programme and one to membership. The article on membership as proposed read as follows; the italics being the amendment: Every college established under the act of Congress approved July 2, 1862, or receiving the benefits of the act of Congress, approved August 30, 1890, and every department of mechanic arts so established, and every agricultural experiment station, etc.
Action on this amendment was taken at the Fifteenth Annual Convention, held in Washington, November 12-14, 1901. See Proceedings, page 50. This action struck out the proposal to give representation to the department of mechanic arts, evidently on the theory that institutions and not departments should have representation. The section on mechanic arts was continued as before. On pages 38-40 of the Proceedings for 1901 will be found an admirable report on the scope of the work for the section in mechanic arts by H. W. Tyler, Chairman of the Section for that year.
At the Sixteenth Annual Convention, Atlanta, Georgia, October 7 -9, 1902, a proposal to amend the constitution was made. See Proceedings of 1902, page 44. The proposed amendments provided for two sections. (1) A Section on College Work and Administration; (2) A Section on Experiment Station Work. The amendments proposed provided further that each section might create such divisions as it may from time to time find desirable.
