Tusculum College Tennessee by Frank T Wheeler
Book DescriptionA few years prior to Tennessee's induction into statehood, two pioneering Presbyterian ministers, Hezekiah Balch and Samuel Doak, both educated at the College of New Jersey (now Princeton), formed schools in the fledgling United States' southwestern frontier, now known as East Tennessee. Besides enriching the early Scotch-Irish settlers' spiritual life, Balch and Doak were also devoted to addressing their educational needs. Hezekiah Balch established Greeneville College, which became a reality in September 1794 after an act by the General Assembly of the Territory of the United States South of the Ohio River. Tusculum College, founded as an academy in 1818 by Samuel Doak and his son, Samuel Witherspoon Doak, merged with Greeneville College in 1868 to become the Greeneville and Tusculum College. In the early part of the twentieth century, the college dropped the "Greeneville" portion of its name, and thus developed modern-day Tusculum College. This unique visual history traces the college's roots from its earliest beginnings as two separate educational institutions through the late twentieth century. Containing over 190 black-and-white photographs, this volume captures the Tusculum experience, from highlighting its famous presidents and faculty members, to showcasing the dramatic changes of the campus over the years, to exploring the variety of activities in which Tusculum students participated over the decades. Readers will thoroughly enjoy remembering their own college experiences at this historic institution as they read the different stories and thumb through the images of early classrooms, social groups, sporting events, and local hangouts.
