Excerpt from College of Hawaii Annual Catalogue: 1912-1913
The College of Hawaii owes its origin to an act of Congress, entitled An Act Donating Public Lands to the several States and Territories which may provide Colleges for the benefit of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts, approved July 2, 1862. The amount of land set aside was 30,000 acres for each Senator and Representative in Congress. This land was to be sold and the income devoted to "The endowment, support, and maintenance of at least one college where the leading object shall be, without excluding other scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and the mechanic arts (in such manner as the Legislatures of the States may respectively prescribe), in order to promote the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and professions of life."
Three purposes are pointed out in this law, namely: To provide for a liberal education, to give intellectual training in the branches of learning that are related to agriculture and the mechanic arts, and to offer this instruction to the industrial classes. The College of Hawaii is organized to carry out these objects.
The College owes its existence and maintenance to the following resolution and act:
Concurrent Resolutions Adopted May 25, 1906.
