The progress of Negro Land-Grant Colleges in Mississippi, Missouri, West Virginia and Texas has perhaps been over-looked by many. Useless to say that such a subject is of great importance, for the writer believes that an interesting and imposing volume could be written on the progress of the colleges of these states. It is the specific intention of this thesis to indicate in certain definite ways the progress that has been made by land-grant colleges of the above named states. By progress is meant advancement, a going forth or forward - (Webster) Progress is growth or development - (Dewey) Since growth is necessary in accomplishing our desired goals in Negro institutions of higher learning, a knowledge of things pre-requisite for advancement is necessary. Other institutions will grow if proper consideration is given to the ultimate requirements for progress as seen in the land-grant colleges that this thesis is based on. The sources used in securing information for this subject were: Survey of Land-Grant Colleges and Universities, Vol. II. 1930 edition. Catalogue Material of Alcorn Agricultural And Mechanical College, Lincoln University, West Virginia State College and Prairie View State Normal And Industrial College, Information from Principal W. R. Banks, of Prairie View College.
