Excerpt from The Higher Education: A Plea for Making It Accessible to All: An Address Delivered at the Annual Commencement of the University of Michigan, June 26, 1879
The wise men who shaped the organization of this State steadily cherished the idea which was inherited from the fathers, of building a University in which their children, whether pooror rich, could obtain the higher culture 'of their minds. The plan of a university marked out by the territorial govern ment in 1817 was one which for breadth and completeness of conception we can even now only admire. The language of the Constitution of 1835 Shows that its framers had the broadest and most generous views of public provision for the support of libraries, education, including higher education, and especially of the University.
We may say, therefore, with strictest truth, that this idea of large and liberal supply of facilities not only for common school training, but also for University education, was inwrought into the very conception of the State of Michigan. It has from the beginning formed a part of the life of the State. It has never been lost, but has grown with the growth of the State, and strengthened with its strength. And it has, I believe.
