  United States Census, 1890 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 1890 census announced that the frontier region of the United States no longer existed and therefore the tracking of westward migration would no longer be tabulated in the census.
The 1890 census was the first to be compiled on a tabulating machine, developed by Herman Hollerith.
This introduction of technology reduced the time taken to tabulate the census from seven years for the 1880 census to two and a half years for the 1890 census despite the fact the U.S. population had almost doubled during that period.

I have at last completed the examination of the farm and population schedules of 1890, for the purpose of ascertaining how many of the 818 negroes returned on farm schedules in 1900 were also enumerated in 1890 and their occupations at that time.
Of the 818 negro farmers of 1900, 295 were returned on farm schedules in 1890; 104 were returned as farm laborers; 27 as laborers; and 28 with miscellaneous occupations, making a total of 454 of the 818 that were enumerated in 1890.

 1890
The 1890 Act promoted segregation by providing for it in the language of the Act, by providing schools to divert students who wished to enter the white colleges into, and by submitting a group of influential fl leaders to the Southern state legislatures.
This is because in 1862 the Civil War was raging and the South, the center of the fl population, was not involved in the debate.
They could also use the 1890 funds for agriculture and mechanics and divert the funds that were used for previous agricultural and mechanical studies to the classical studies.

 The Future of the 1890's
Since the 1890 institutions have been more closely associated with federal funding, this may in part explain the difference in titles for those who manage Extension programs in the two systems.
Similarly, 1890 institutions faced in May 1990 with the possibility that 22 Tribal Community Colleges might find their way into the 1890 federal funding package feel a very real possibility that their funding from Congress could be diluted.
With the loss of the 1890 institution designation in West Virginia, there are today 17 historically fl institutions in 16 states receiving 1890 funding; two in Alabama.

 American bison
In the seventeenth century, an estimated 60 million bison roamed the plains of North America.
With the arrival of settlers, the bison were pushed out of their native land and ruthlessly hunted - until, by 1890, less than 1,000 animals survived.
Unlike the native Americans, who had traditionally hunted the bison for food, tools, and their hides, the European's slaughter was primarily for sport, with people shooting from the newly built railway, seeing how many they could kill in a day.
