How did what is now Dickinson State College come into being? During the 13th Legislative Assembly, meeting in 1913, Senator McBride introduced a resolution calling for the establishment of a Normal School at Dickinson. Representing Stark County in the House of Representatives were C. C. Turner, Fred Turner, and Henry Kline and they, too, supported the idea, as well as other West River delegates. According to law it was again presented at the next session, and Senator McBride with the help of Representatives C. C. Turner, Frank Wanner, and H. J. Blanchard, was able to secure enough votes for its adoption. Governor L. B. Hanna signed the resolution on February 5, 1915, and the first steps had been taken. The next was to submit the proposal to the state's voters, to determine if a majority would favor adoption of the amendment to the state's Constitution.

This is Bicentennial Story No. 124, prepared by O.T. Belsheim for the Stark County Historical Society.
