Kuhn, M. Michigan State, 1955: p. 303 ("The Agricultural College of the State of Michigan," f. 1855, was renamed "the State Agricultural College" by the law of 1861; omission of "Michigan" from the latter designation resulted in two variants, Michigan State Agricultural College and State Agricultural College of Michigan, which were used so interchangeably that some annual catalogs carry the one on the cover and the other on the t.p.; unofficially it was usually shortened to Michigan Agricultural College and the initials M.A.C. became the school's symbol; in 1909, the Legislature designated it "Michigan Agricultural College")
