Description

Excerpt from Historical Catalogue of the Officers and Graduates of the Columbian University, Washington, D. C: 1821-1891 The Columbian College, in common with Harvard, Yale and Princeton, owes its origin to the zeal of a Christian Denom imation for an educated Ministry. Early in the year 1817, the Rev. Luther Rice, a returned missionary from India, conceived the idea of founding a college in the city of Washington for the education of gospel ministers in the Special service of the Baptist denomination of Christians. Around this School of Theology he projected Schools of Classical Culture, of Science and of Philosophy which Should be entirely unsectarian in their disciplines and national in their aims.
