The College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts was established in 1870 as a direct result of the Morrill Act. The School of Engineering was divorced from the College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts in 1924, resulting in the renaming of the unit the College of Agriculture. Between 1946 and 1960 the unit was known as the Division of Agricultural Sciences and included Veterinary Medicine, Forestry, and Home Economics. In 1960 the unit's name was changed back to the College of Agriculture. In December 1990, the College of Agriculture was renamed the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.

C:14 School of Medicine

The teaching of medicine at the University of Missouri has an erratic history due to the lack of clinical facilities in Columbia until the early 1950s. A two year program affiliated with the St Louis Medical School (formerly the Medical Department of Kemper College) was established in 1845 but was discontinued in 1856. In 1873 some medical courses were taught in affiliation with medical institutions in St. Louis. In 1873 the unit was called the Department of Medicine until 1908 when it was called the School of Medicine. Despite a series of lengthening and shortening of curriculum, the School of Medicine has retained the same name and structure. Note: The School of Medicine reports to the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, see C:1/36.

C:18 University Extension Division

Until 1960, extension work at MU was divided into the Cooperative or Agricultural Extension Service of the College of Agriculture (established bewteen 1912 and 1914) and the General Extension Service (renamed the Adult Education and Extension Service in 1946 and the Division of Continuing Education in 1958). In 1960 the Board of Curators established the University Extension Division to be led by a dean -- the first being C. Brice Ratchford who at the time was Director of the Agricultural Extension Service. Since 1963, the date of the creation of the UM System, the Deans of Extension of each campus have reported to the Vice President for Extension (UW). In 1987, the Board of Curators divided the singular office of Extension program leadership into two offices, the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs-Extension (UW) and the Vice Provost for Extension (MU). Effective 1 January 2004, UM-System Outreach and Extension was transferred under the administrative control of the MU Provost. All Outreach and Extension records created after 2003 will be added to Campus Record Group 18.
