Excerpt from Historical Sketch of Marietta College: Founded at Marietta, Ohio, 1835 The charter of Marietta College bears date February The institution had, however, been in operation a short time under another name. An act of incorporation had been obtained Decem ber 17, 1832, for The Marietta Collegiate Institute and Western Teachers' Seminary. This charter gave no power to confer degrees, and contained a section authorizing any future legislature to amend or repeal it. A new charter was obtained two years later, free from the repealing clause. And giving the power to confer degrees. The same gentlemen were named as corporators in both charters, viz: Luther G. Bingham, John Cotton, Caleb Emerson, John Mills, John Crawford, Arius Nye, Douglas Putnam, Jonas Moore, and Anselm T. Nye, though two of them, Messrs. Arius Nye and John Crawford, retired from the Board about the time the college charter was obtained. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
