(Right Tablet) Erected in honor of those through whose contributions was established The Maryland Agricultural College (list of names)

(Left Tablet) The University of Maryland The Maryland Agricultural College was founded on this campus in 1856, to become the second agricultural college founded in America. In 1864 it became the Land Grant College of Maryland, and in 1916 it was taken over entirely by the state, to become the Maryland State College. In 1920 all of the property of the old University of Maryland, which had been founded in 1807 in Baltimore as the College of Medicine of Maryland, was turned over to the governing board of the Maryland State College, and the two institutions were thus merged, to become the present University of Maryland.
