PROCEEDINGS OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES.

SPRINGFIELD, ILLS., March 12, 1867.

In pursuance of the foregoing laws, and in response to the subjoined letter of appointment from His Excellency, Richard J. Oglesby, Governor of Illinois, the Board of Trustees (thereby created), met in the hall of the House of Representatives in this city, on Tuesday, the 12th day of March, 1867:

THE GOVERNOR'S LETTER.

STATE OF ILLINOIS, EXECUTIVE Department,
SPRINGFIELD, March 1, 1867.

To

DEAR SIR: You are hereby notified and informed that you have been appointed a trustee of the Illinois Industrial University, located in Champaign county. Your appointment will bear date March 1, 1867.

You are also notified that the first regular meeting of the Board of Trustees will be held in the city of Springfield, Illinois, on Tuesday, March 12, 1867, being the second Tuesday of said month, as provided by the act.

At this meeting the Board of Trustees, among other important duties to be performed, will be required to elect a Regent of the University. You are therefore respectively requested to attend said meeting, as required by law.

Yours, etc.,

R. J. OGLESBY,

Governor of Illinois.

As an ex officio member of the board, His Excellency, the Governor, called the meeting to order, and, directing attention to certain provisions of the law for the organization of the institution, said that it was made his duty to appoint one trustee from each Congressional District, thirteen in all, and five from each one of the three Grand Judicial Divisions of the State, making in all twenty-eight trustees to be appointed by him. In addition to these, the law also appointed four other ex officio members, to-wit : The Governor, and Superintendent of Public Instruction of the State, the President of the State Agricultural Society, and the

Regent of the University, when he should be elected, who was also to be President of the Board. He felt that the trust devolving upon them was a highly important one, and that the men who assumed it, and discharged it gratuitously, were serving their State in no mean capacity.

The Governor heartily indorsed the project, and wished it the utmost success, not doubting that it was destined to be one of the foremost institutions of our State at no very distant day. Discre tion, labor and perseverance were necessary to give it a successful impulse. He thought the State might congratulate itself upon the appointment of such a board, and again hoped their labors would be crowned with eminent success.

A temporary organization was then effected by the election of His Excellency, Governor Oglesby, as chairman, and James Rea, Esq., as recording secretary.

The secretary then proceeded to call the roll of members as furnished by the Governor's private secretary, Col. George H. Harlow, as follows:
