||Before there was an Oklahoma State University (OSU), there was a place known as OAMC. Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College was the name given to the land-grant college in Stillwater, Oklahoma, in 1891. OAMC began with prairie lawns, dirt roads, well water, and eventually one permanent building. Sixty-seven years of change later, the thriving campus completely surrounded that first building and still continues to bring opportunities to students today. This is a pictorial history of the first seven decades. Over the years, the campus faced the opportunities and challenges of the territorial period, statehood, economic depression, and wars. Through vision, planning, and hard work, a college and a community was built on the prairie. This first edition is individually numbered and autographed by the author.
