The Great Fire, Maryland Agriculture College, 1912

Reveille 1920

Due in part to the need to rebuild the College Park campus after the 1912 fire and to the leadership of presidents Harry J. Patterson and Albert F. Woods, the institution enjoyed great successes in the years following the disaster. Women were admitted as students for the first time in 1916 and a dozen or more new structures dotted the campus grounds. The editors of the 1920 Reveille decided to publish a history of the College to mark the institution's progress.
