Excerpt from The Centennial of the University of Virginia: 1819-1921; The Proceedings of the Centenary Celebration, May 31 to June 3, 1921

The University of Virginia was founded in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson. The celebration of its one-hundredth anniversary was de layed from 1919 to 1921 because of disturbed world conditions follow ing the Great War. Prior to the Centennial there appeared the monu mental History of the University of Virginia, by Philip Alexander Bruce, LL.D., the notable offering of a distinguished alumnus and historian; and coincident with that event was published a volume of poems, The Enchanted Years, contributed in honor of the occasion by poets of America and Great Britain. Shortly before the Centennial Celebration, there was shown on the moving-picture screen in Vir ginia and other states a series of important events and noteworthy scenes in the history of the University from the days of Jefferson and Poe to the present.

The following pages set forth in order the proceedings of that historic occasion which covered four days, May 31 - June 3, 1921. Most of the addresses delivered, a few representative greetings, and the text of the Centennial Pageant are included, together with a num ber of illustrations which will make more vivid to the reader certain memorable scenes. While the volume is primarily a record of the Centennial Celebration, it is in a larger sense an interpretation of the spirit of an institution through a hundred years of service to State and Nation.
