ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO, THE REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON RESOLVED:

"That we also indicate to the members of the Faculty our desire that each member of the Faculty endeavor to themselves perform some original work such as inventing, discovery or writing, in their respective departments."

-- From an 1895 resolution by the Board of Regents shortly after they moved to the present campus
