McCorkle suggested that a college be formed to educate the young men of the church so that they would not have to make the arduous trip to Pennsylvania, and so that higher education might be fostered locally. The school, called Catawba for a local river which in turn was named for a tribe of Indians, was opened in the " Old Academy Building " in New- ton on December 3, 1851. Professor Charles H. Albert was the first Principal. For many years Catawba consisted of a College and an Academy. Catawba was formallv chartered by the State of North Carolina on December 17, 1852. Many men were instrumental in the development of the College. One of the foremost was Dr. J. C. Clapp, who served as President for forty years beginning in 1861. He was in that position when Catawba became co-educational. The first women students were Miss Willie Augusta Lantz and Miss Emma Clapp. Catawba grew rapidly from its humble beginning. The " Old Academy Build- ing " was outgrown soon after the school began. This infant institution of higher learning was soon moved to " Old White Church.

eral years, Catawba was moved to a campus south of the town. During the ensuing years, the College continued to grow. There were periods when the probability of Catawba ' s becoming a seminary was discussed. Because of a decision to move the College, the school was closed temporarily at the end of the academic year 1922-23. It reopened in the fall of 1925 at its new location in Salisbury. Only the main building was then in existence, but the plant has steadily been enlarged until it now consists of one hundred ninety acres of land and nineteen buildings, with the promise of more in the future. The College is governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of twenty-four mem- bers elected in the following manner: eight by the General Synod, eight by the Southern Synod of the Evangelical and Reformed Church, and eight by the afore- mentioned sixteen. Thus the close relationship of the School and the Church has been continued through the years. With a century of successful history, Catawba College now looks forward to a hopeful future.
