Frostburg State University (FSU) is a four-year university located on a 260-acre (1.1 km2) campus in Frostburg, Maryland, in Western Maryland, and is part of the University System of Maryland. FSU is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.[1]

History[edit]

It was created by an act of the Maryland General Assembly House Bill 742, the General Appropriation Bill on Thursday March 31, 1898 4PM and an amendment offered on the floor by John Leake of Vale Summit, Allegany County:

For the direction erection of a building in Frostburg, Allegany county to be known as The State Normal School No. 2, for the sum of $20,000; and for the support of said school when established $5,000 annually, provided, the people of the town Frostburg furnish the ground for the site of said building and deed the same to the state.[2]

The State Board of Education selects and town of Frostburg pays for two acre Beall Park[3] as the location of the new school on August 9, 1898.[4]

Cornerstone laid September 4, 1899.[5] The Normal School's first building, Old Main, was positioned in Beall's Park to face Loo Street (now known as College Avenue) and to look down Wood Street toward the center of Frostburg,[6] State Normal School #2 opened with its first class September 15, 1902 with 57 students with Frostburgs first principal Dr. Edward D Murdaugh (18 November 1953 - May 1925).[7][8][9] In 1902 8 students became the first graduates of the college.[7] In 1912 a new gymnasium was authorized and completed in 1914.[7] In 1919 the first dormitory was opened.[7] In 1925 the second dormitory was opened.[7] In 1927 Allegany Hall,new auditorium, gymnasium and heating plant was added.[7] In 1930 a six room practice elementary school known as the new laboratory school[6] was opened and campus was extended to 40 acres taking over the Brownsville area of Frostburg.[7]

Its original mission was to train teachers for the Maryland public school system. In 1935 the school was renamed State Teachers' College at Frostburg and began offering a four-year degree program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education degree. Lillian Cleveland Compton[10] served as the first female president of Frostburg State Teachers College from 1945 to 1954 [11] replacing 21 year president John L. Dunkle.[12][13][14] Her mission as President was to prepare the College for its closing. Enrollment stood at a mere sixty-two students. With outdated facilities and inadequate funding, the College was accredited only by the Maryland State Department of Education. As early as 1943, there had arisen in the State Legislature a movement to close the institution, which would eventually culminate in the Marbury Report.[15] In 1947 the "American Council on Education (1947). Higher education in Maryland; a report of a survey with recommendations of the Maryland Commission on Higher Education (Marbury Report) suggested that Frostburg State teachers college be closed.[16] The report states:

Your Commission does feel obligate to recommend the prompt discontinuance

of the State Teachers College at Frostburg. We are convinced that the cost of operating this unit is not justified by the very small number of its graduates who are entering the school system of the state as teachers. In reaching this conclusion, we have been strongly influenced by the report of our survey staff as to the present condition of the physical facilities at Frostburg. It is apparent that the state faces a heavy capital expenditure if operations at that location are to be continued. Frankly, such an outlay seems to us to be an indefensible wast of public money. ... The facilities in Towson are adequate to care for all the students at Frostburg who are now studying to become teachers.

[16]

The end of World War II brought a drastic change in the College environment. In 1946, enrollment increased to 274 students, many being admitted under the new GI Bill. Though the movement to close the College persisted, it seemed misguided to those on the scene and was roundly opposed by both private citizens and civic groups in Frostburg and Western Maryland. With the strong support of State Superintendent of Schools Thomas Granville Pullen, Jr., and Governor William Preston Lane Jr., the General Assembly was petitioned to keep the School open and the Marbury Commission's recommendations died without ever being acted upon.[15]

Under Compton's leadership, enrollment grew from 62 in 1945 to 500 in 1954, the faculty increased from 13 to 34 members, and the size of the campus increased from eight to 40 acres of land. In addition to plant expansion, she initiated programs in curriculum development, adding a program to train junior high school teachers.[15] R. Bowen Hardesty replaced Compton as president in 1955.[14] The continued southern expansion of the College saw Brownsville Schools and homes along Park Avenue demolished by 1955 to make way for Compton, Allen and Simpson Halls. A new school-also known as the Lincoln School, and the current home of the University's Public Safety office-was constructed in the late 1950s. However, the building was used for only two years until national integration laws reassigned students to other Frostburg elementary schools.[6] The school was again renamed in 1963, this time as Frostburg State College. Frostburg received university status in 1987 thus being renamed to what it is today. [17]
