The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois met in the University Parlor, Urbana, Illinois, at 3 o'clock p. m., Tuesday, J u n e 9, 1896. The members present were Messrs. Armstrong, Bullard, Graham, McLean, Morgan, Morrison, and Raymond, and Dr. Smith; those absent were Governor Altgeld, Messrs. Inglis and Judy, and Mrs. Flower. I t was suggested by President Armstrong that at the adjourned meeting of the Board held May 25th there had been but six members of the Board present, and that it would be necessary to take some action with reference to the transactions of that meeting before they would be strictly legal and binding. I t was thereupon voted that the several acts of the meeting of May 25th stand confirmed by the Board. The minutes of the meetings of March 10, 1896, April 22, 1896, and May 25, 1896, as presented by the Secretary, were approved.
