list of Mr. Fulton's mining connections during the past 24 years.
Mr. Fulton was graduated from the Mining Department of this Uni-
versity of Nevada in 1898, and spent the next two years at Colum-
bia University, where he was graduated with the E. M. degree in
1900.  His varied experiences in the mining world and his execu-
tive ability commend him as Director of the Mackay School of
Mines and Professor of Mining.

President's recommendation, that John Allen Fulton be elected
to the Directorship of the Mackay School of Mines at a salary
of $5000 for the year beginning September, 1924, to be increased
to $5500 for the year beginning September, 1925, and to be fur-
ther increased to $6000 for the year beginning September, 1926
and thereafter, with the understanding that Mr. Fulton should
go East this Fall and study mining methods in several of the
more important eastern Universities, returning to the University
of Nevada not earlier than December and with permission to remain
longer in the East if he should think it to this University's
interest for him to do so.  Vote:
