Excerpt from Report of the Committee on Organization: Presented to the Trustees of the Cornell University, October 21st, 1866

Thirdly, great good would result to large portions of the pub lic in general, which under ordinary circumstances would not avail itself of the ordinary privileges of the University. It is believed that such special courses of lectures by distinguished men would attract large numbers of citizens for brief terms, resulting in good to them and to society at large, by an immediate extension of the activity of the University among the matured minds and men already in active life.

Fourthly, great good would result to the University itself. It would enable the University to make a division of labor, selecting members of the Resident Faculty, for their energy and working ability; selecting men who have a name to make and ability to make it, and not selecting men for the resident professors - for the hard work of the University - who have attained eminence and so outlived their willingness to do hard work.
