Kansas State University introduces "A Century of Excellence," a book commemorating the 100th anniversary of the College of Veterinary Medicine.

The book is the culmination of 10 years of research by its authors, according to the university.

The 288-page hardback has a timeline, hundreds of photos and devotes a two-page spread to each year of the college's history.

Interspersed are sections on topics such as veterinary facilities, continuing education, graduate studies, deans and the college's alumni fellows.

For example, in 1908 the veterinary program required applicants to be at least 14 years old and pass a basic examination on reading, writing, arithmetic, history, grammar and physiology. Tuition was free, but an incidental fee of $3 per semester was charged to Kansas residents and a $10 enrollment fee.
