Biography/History"Traction Engineering. First year of two-year Engineering course and third year of Farm Husbandry course, fall term, five hours a week. The first four weeks are devoted to a careful study of the gasoline engine with the view of making students expert operators of such engines as are used for farm purposes. The remaining ten weeks are devoted to a study of the traction engine, especial attention being paid to its proper care, management and adjustment. The laboratory work of this course is of a very practical nature, and consists of work which experts usually are called upon to do in the field." P. 94. Catalog and Announcement of North Dakota Agricultural College for 1907-1908, Fargo, North Dakota..
In 1905 the North Dakota Legislature passed a comprehensive paint law that made the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station responsible for the quality of paint sold in stores. In 1906, extensive experiments began when test fences were erected all over the campus of North Dakota Agricultural College
