Under the terms of the Morrill Land Grant Act, military service was compulsory for students at the Massachusetts Agricultural College.  Training facilities for those students, however were clearly inadequate on the early campus, with indoor exercises held on the third floor of the old chemistry building.  To rectify the situation, during his second tenure as President of MAC, [[c:chadbourne_paul_a|Paul A. Chadbourne]] lobbied for funds to erect a building dedicated to military training, and after some difficulty, the state provided an appropriation of $6,500 for the construction of a drill hall.
