Excerpt from Quarter Centennial: June, 1892

At this time the Legislature passed the act establishing the new Normal Schools, authorizing proposals to be received by the commission appointed for that purpose from the corporate authorities of any village, or from the Board of Trustees of any academy, for their establishment. The trustees of the Collegiate Institute at once resolved to avail themselves of this privilege, and in conjunction with the village authorities they presented the subject to the peo ple for their consideration. The proposition was for the village to raise by taxation a sufficient sum, about to pay off the incumbrances, and to enlarge the buildings by erecting wings to the same and to present it to the State for the purposes of a Normal School. The subject was thor oughly discussed in all its bearings, and a bitter contest raged during the entire season. The friends of the school were ardent, enthusiastic, wide-awake, and thoroughly in earnest. Under the able leadership of Prof. Mcvicar, at that time the Principal of the School, every effort was made to convince the people of the expediency of the proposed meas ure. It was submitted to the taxpayers for their votes, and carried by a handsome majority. The proposals were approved at Albany, and on the 20th of March, 1867, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Hon. Victor M. Rice, appointed the following Local Board for the immediate management of the school, viz; Dr. M. B. Anderson, Hon.
