Third Principal Dayton A. Reed 1890-1892
UP UPC ASUP Reed, Dayton A.

The keystone of Arizona's educational system and its main source of teachers was the Arizona Territorial Normal School in Tempe. Classes had already started in 1886, held in a four-room building with 33 students in attendance. When the Reed-Storment era began, it was clear to them that better facilities had to be developed in order to provide a good teaching environment for students. Reed and Storment are credited with establishing funds for and beginning construction of the historic building and intellectual symbol of the university today, Old Main.
