In 1892, graduate work was undertaken under the name of the Graduate School. The first summer session was held in 1894. The department of music became the School of Music in 1897. The work in law was organized as the School of Law in 1896 (name changed to College of Law, 1900). The General Assembly made a special appropriation in 1900 to establish courses of training for business life, and the Trustees organized the Courses in Business Administration, which in 1915 became the College of Commerce and Business Administration. In 1905, the Trustees established a School of Education, which became the College of Education in 1918. The School of Railway Engineering and Administration was created in 1907, following the establishment in 1906 of the department of railway engineering. The General Assembly in 1909 established the department of mining engineering. In 1913, the College of Literature and Arts and the College of Science were united to form the present College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Experimental work and research in agriculture and the related sciences was begun at an early date. In 1888, the Agricultural Experiment Station was founded, and in 1903 the Engineering Experiment Station. Similar organizations on a smaller scale are the Bureau of Educational Research (1918) and the Bureau of Business Research (1921). The facilities for scientific research have been increased by the location at the University of certain State organizations—State Laboratory of Natural History (1885), State Water Survey (1897), State Entomologist's Office (1899), merged with the Laboratory of Natural History to form the State Natural History Survey in 1917; State Geological Survey (1905). The Chicago College of Pharmacy, founded in 1859, became the School of Pharmacy of the University in 1896. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Chicago was affiliated with the University under a lease in 1897, and the stock and assets of the College were presented to the University in 1913. The School of Dentistry, organized as a department of the College of Medicine in 1901, became the College of Dentistry in 1905. In 1897, the School of Library Economy, established in 189 3 at the Armour Institute of Technology in Chicago, was transferred to the University, the Director of that school was appointed Librarian of the University, and the Library School was opened. Today the University has more than 13,000 students, and a faculty and administrative staff of about 1,400, many of whom are nationally known. The University has to its credit numerous discoveries and achievements in research.
