In a 50-room building that housed Connecticut's Civil War orphans, the University of Connecticut began in the fall of 1881 as the Storrs Agricultural School. From this beginning comes a rich history of change that continues through the billion-dollar program known as UConn 2000. In these pages are many previously unpublished and many long-unseen images that chronicle 120 years of that transformation. Each era in the university's history has seen growth and change: the 1890s, when faculty and administration squared off in the qthe war of the rebellionq; 1908 to 1928, when President Charles L. Beach changed the curriculum and fought for qthe needs of the collegeq; the 27-year administration of Albert N. Jorgensen, which saw a small college become a major research university; the 1960s, when, under Homer Babbidge Jr., the university made great academic advances while facing the sociopolitical challenges of the times; and today, when unprecedented changes are rebuilding and enhancing Connecticut's flagship university.The early curriculum was practical farming, with a heavy dose of manual labor. But the boys, ages 15 to 18, also had classes in literature, elocution, writing, mathematics, and history. ... After dinner, they worked from 2:00 to 5:00, and the 6 :00 supper was followed by two hours of study time before lights out at 9:00. ... A laboratory building and a barn, both built in 1887, were the first new campus buildings.
