The Ohio State University

1. Harraman, Joshua Michael. Rivals for Governance of the Land-Grant University: Farmers, Alumni, and Administration at the Ohio State University, 1870-1910.

Degree: PhD, EDU Policy and Leadership, 2019, The Ohio State University

Many believe that farmers were originally supportive of the land-grant colleges because of the focus on agricultural science as part of the land-grant curriculum. Although land-grant colleges and farmers are generally aligned in their interests and efforts today, the farmers of the 1850s-early 1900s actually challenged the land-grant colleges for control of governance and funding. Often these challenges occurred between farmers and colleges in Congress and state legislatures. Meanwhile, the alumni were a disorganized group prior to the 1910s that often challenged the university administration’s authority and control of the college. Yet, in order to compete with the farmers, the land-grant colleges needed to identify a group of advocates who would lobby legislatures on the land-grant colleges behalf. My research focuses on how one institution, the Ohio State University, used its alumni to parry the attacks of farmers in the early 1910s. Research has been limited on the relationship between the land-grant universities’ administration, farmers, and the alumni. Even more limited is the literature that exists about alumni relations during the formative years of the profession (1890-1920). My research identifies how the Ohio State University established authority over the disparate alumni groups in order to use the alumni as advocates in Congress and the state legislature to combat the farmers.
