Excerpt from Annual Report of the Board of Education, 1875-76

In the discharge of the duties assigned them, the Board of Education respectfully submit to the Legislature their Fortieth Annual Report.

When the last report of the Board was presented, space for the exhibit of the Department Of Education and Science at Philadelphia had not been allotted. It was the Opinion Of the Board that a special building, to be devoted to the purpose, and an additional appropriation for the exhibit itself, were necessary to do justice to the varied interests Of the Commonwealth involved in this department. Neither of these facilities was afforded. Therefore the Committee of the Board, consisting of Messrs. Gardiner G. Hubbard, A. A. Miner and Joseph White, through their Agent, Mr. John D. Philbrick, and by the per sonal efforts of their Chairman, Mr. Hubbard, secured the best accommodations available in regard to Space, and arranged the exhibit accordingly. Six rooms in the east gallery, three on either side Of the entrance thereto, with such Space between as could be made available, were prepared for a compact presenta tion of the choicest portions of the materials in hand. The restricted limits excluded much which would have added to the variety and extent Of the exhibit, though perhaps not to its average quality. Care was taken to do justice, as far as possi ble, to the different parts of the State, and to the several higher institutions which proffered their aid.
