Editorial notes:
Description: The 1904 Columbian University bulletin, Alumni Number, explains the reasoning behind the partnership with the George Washington Memorial Association. The text includes a section on "Washington's Policy of National Education," which examines several of Washington's writings that display his desire for a national university. The text claims that the George Washington University is being founded to satisfy the first President's wishes and that the University will become the "more perfect union" so much desired by Washington and by all patriotic men and women throughout the land.
