Biographical/Historical note

Enoch A. Bryan was born in Bloomington, Indiana, on May 10, 1855. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree (A.B.) from Indiana University in 1878 and a Master of Arts degree (A.M.) from the same institution in 1885. In 1893, he returned to school and received another Master of Arts degree (A.M.) from Harvard University. He had three Honorary Doctor of Law degrees bestowed: one from Michigan State University in 1907, one from Indiana University in 1920, and one from Washington State University in 1929. After beginning his career as the Superintendent of Public Schools in Grayville, Illinois, Bryan served as the President of Vincennes University in Vincennes, Indiana, from 1882 to 1893. He came to Washington State University (then Washington Agricultural College) as President in 1893 and served in that capacity until 1916. In 1916, Bryan attempted to attain the Washington State nomination for a seat in the United States Senate but was defeated. In 1917, he became the Commissioner of Education for the State of Idaho, serving until 1923. Bryan then returned to Washington State University as a professor of economic history. He served in that capacity until 1939 when he retired with the rank of Professor Emeritus. Dr. Bryan died in Pullman, Washington, on November 6, 1941.

Arrangement note

The papers are arranged to reflect the provenance of the papers, as well as to facilitate access. Accordingly, materials acquired in 1990 are arranged in sequences separate from the papers acquired in the 1950s. (The exceptions are the drafts and manuscripts of Bryan's two books, and some of his classroom teaching materials, where related materials have been drawn together irrespective of which lot they originated with.) The reason the papers were originally divided is not clear. Possibly chance alone drove the original decisions. To some degree the papers transferred in 1950s from the President's office do reflect a more official capacity, for example, many of the speeches are related to matters involving the State College. Likewise the more personal materials transferred in 1990 tend to include more speeches and essays on literary and philosophic subjects. However, the division is not exclusive and, in fact, copies or variants of the same text can be found in both lots. The order and arrangement of the speeches and essays follows that which was received by the Libraries. Texts on roughly related topics are grouped, but other wise it is quite informal, and is neither alphabetical nor chronological. Indeed, many texts have no titles to use in alphabetization and are not dated well enough to allow arrangement in order of date.
