A Report of an Investigation of the Financial and Educational Affairs of the George Washington University
Excerpt from A Report of an Investigation of the Financial and Educational Affairs of the George Washington University: Transmitted to the House of Representatives by the Attorney-General June 2, 1910, and Referred to the Committee on the District of ColumbiaSir: On April 25, 1910, the following resolution was adopted by the House of Representatives:Whereas the bill H. R. 24316 designates the George Washington University as an institution to administer the appropriations of the Morrill acts as extended by said bill to the District of Columbia; and Whereas statements have been made in the hearings on H. R. 12343 and in the public press regarding the use of the funds of the institution, the original Boutell bill, and in consideration of the provision made in section ten of the original charter of George Washington University, adopted February ninth, eighteen hundred and twenty-one, which, after providing that the trustees of the university shall keep accurate records of its proceedings and financial management, further provides that "the said book or journal shall at all times be open to the inspection or examination of the Attorney-General of the United States; and when required by either House of Congress it shall be the duty of said trustees to furnish information respecting their own conduct, the state of the institution, and of its finances, which shall or may be so required:" Therefore be it.Resolved, That the House of Representatives hereby requests the Attorney-General of the United States to conduct a careful investigation of the financial and educational affairs of the said George Washington University, and to furnish the House with detailed report covering a period of at least the last ten years as to the receipts, investments, and expenditures of the university in each of its departments; said report to be especially explicit as to the departments of engineering, architecture, veterinary medicine, and pharmacy on the following points: First, amount the university has invested in buildings in each of these departments, or number of rooms used for each department; second, detailed statement of items of equipment of each of these departments; third, actual class enrollment for the past three years in each subject taught in each oi these departments; fourth, salaries paid the individual professors of each of these departments, and the charges made students for laboratory fees in these departments.The only investigation which I have felt competent to conduct pursuant to this resolution was an examination into the financial affairs of the university, as it has been uniformly held by my predecessors that the Attorney-General can not undertake to investigate and report upon questions of fact, even for the head of one of the other departments of the Government (17 Op., 436; 19 Op., 465: 20 Op., 253-384; 23 Op., 231); and on several occasions my predecessors have declined to conduct investigations at the request of either House of Congress, on the ground that such investigations were beyond their power under the statutes (1 Op., 335; 6 Op., 680, 684; 14 Op., 17-178; 10 Op., 164).About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
