Series 2: Grade Books, 1903-1918 (2 linear feet)

The first set of grade books consists of indices listing students who attended Maryland Agricultural College during the academic years 1903-1904 to 1917-1918. The books do not contain any indication of the course for which they were compiled or the instructor responsible. Some do include a scheme of comment or breakdown of points to be awarded for levels of performance in scholarship, attendance, and observance of regulations. Two additional gradebooks are the class records for Professor C.F. Kramer, Jr. for the 1916-1917 and 1917-1918 academic years. In 2009, restrictions on this series were lifted after being closed for a period of 75 years.
