A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Harvard Collection - Harvard College was established in 1636 by the vote of the Great and General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and was subsequently named for John Harvard. Harvard was a minister from Charlestown who, upon his death in 1638, left his library and half of his estate to the new school. The institution was incorporated in 1650 as the "President and Fellows of Harvard College," also known as the Harvard Corporation. It is the oldest corporation in the Western Hemisphere. When originally founded 16 years after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth it had only 9 students and one head master. It is our oldest institution of higher learning. Charles William Elliot served as president from 1869 to 1909 and is credited with transforming the rather small provincial institution into a large modern university. Under his leadership, the Law and Medical schools were reorganized. Graduate schools of Business, Dental Medicine, and Arts and Sciences were established. Both student enrollment and faculty grew at a vigorous rate. Its future was secured as endowments grew from $2.3 million to $22.5 million. "Harvard Annex" for women's instruction began in 1879, becoming Radcliffe College in 1894. In 1836, President Josiah Quincy announced he had found a first rough draft of the college arms while researching Harvard's history in the archives. The sketch showed a shield on which a motto, "VERITAS", was displayed. During the Bicentennial of that year a white banner showing this logo was first displayed and it became the basis of the seal officially adopted in 1843, and still used today. Over the years Harvard has seen spectacular growth and accomplishments. It counts seven United States presidents among its graduates: John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Rutherford B. Hayes, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and George W. Bush. At least 40 Nobel laureates have been among its students. A Who's Who list of other graduates include Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, William James, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and many others. An even longer list is that of those extraordinary individuals who have been deemed worthy of being awarded honorary degrees by Harvard College.
