been brought to bear upon them in
ourr country. Columbia has recently
begun teaching the subjects more sci-
entifically than they have been treated
before, but merely touches the points
that Michigan can now cover thor-
oughly.
"So inadequate has been the college
training offered in this branch hereto-
fore," states Professor Johnston, "that
,n many instances the government has
been compelled to train men itself in
eeodesy and surveying in order to
supply the demand for these technical

work. Work involving geodetic ele-

In the University of Michigan, the
subject has been taught since engine-
ering work was introduced in 1857.
Professor De Volson Wood, with one
or two assistants, taught all of the
courses unti: the advent of President
Angell in 1872. Prof. J. B. Davis, one
of the three professors who came with
the new administration, was made pro-
fessor of geodesy and surveying in
1891. "During the period before 1895,
while engineering was being taught in
the literary college, the instruction
was of a more general and fundament-
al character than it is today, because
there -were but few opportunities for
specialization," Professor Johnston
says. "As a result, the University of
Michigan has furnished the country
with many astronomers and other sci- ELF-CONFID
