Rabbi Krauskopf's Dream, Started
Edee Eaton to SayVows
With National Farm School, Becomes
With Jerry Franklin
Delaware Valley Pennsylvania College

One of the first Americans to
be ordained rabbi at Hebrew
Union College in Cincinnati had a
dream. He believed that city boys
with a love for nature should be
trained for agricultural work. He
wanted to create a school "to train
youth into becoming scientific and
practical agriculturists."
Dr. Joseph Krauskopf's dream
goon became a reality. In 1896
le acquired 100 acres of land in

students who completed their
National Farm School studies in
1900. The college, still a private,
nonprofit institution, largely sup-
ported by the Jewish community,
has grown from its original 100-
acre farm to its present 1,000-
acre campus; from a one-build-
ing schoolhouse to its present 78
buildings; to a faculty of 48 from
the original two; to a student
body of more than 600 from the
original six—a growth of 100
Delaware Valley College of
Science and Agriculture, totally
non-sectarian, is one of the very
few institutions of higher learn-
ing in this country founded under
Jewish auspices, and its beginning
as a dream of an eminent rabbi
has become a reality in the form
of 2 college recognized by the
state, highly respected in scientific
r circles.

Stern to Perform

Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and,
defying the obstacles of the lack
of able assistants and the funds
necessary for such a project,
formed the National Farm School.
For 27 years young men were
trained at this school and were
encouraged to make scientific
farming their life's work. When
Rabbi Krauskopf died in 1923, the
school had become nationally rec-
ognized, Dr. Krauskopf attained
prominence for establishing a valu-
able institute of learning, and a
board of trustees continued to care
for the school and to sponsor its
But the science of agriculture,
having become much more com-
plicated, imposed new problems
upon the school, requiring new
standards and higher levels if the
institution was to survive.
Faced with these problems, the
school, in 1945, changed the cur-
riculum to a three-year junior col-
lege. James Work, who was a
student in the National Farm
School in the early 1900s and was
a pupil of Dr. Krauskopf, was
named president of the college.
The school's name was changed
to National Farm School and Jun-
ior College, and a class'of '79 was
admitted in June 1946. The last
class of the National Farm School
was graduated in June 1947. That
year, the school became a full four-
year college.
It was in August 1959 that
the college adopted its present
name of Delaware Valley Col-
lege of Science and Agriculture,
and a new era began for the
institution. It is a far cry from ii
