ZduxxUton In Montana The heritage of our college is older than the state of Montana; seventy-five years ago the first religious predecessor of Rocky Mountain College was founded — six years before Montana became a state. Higher education began in Montana Territory at Deer Lodge in September, 1878, when the " Montana Collegiate Institute " was established through the un- tiring efforts and generous gifts of many citizens. Among those who contributed to the founding and support of this school were E. H. Irvine, Conrad Kohrs, A. H. Mitchell, L. J. Sharp, S. E. Larabie, W. A. Clark, and Gov. S. T. Hauser. Soon after the Institute was launched it was felt that there would be an advantage in having this school placed under the sponsorship of some religious group. The Presbytery of Montana, the first denomination to respond to this sug- gestion, appointed a committee to enter negotiations with the trustees of the Institute. As a result, the Presbytery acquired the property of that school on August 23, 1882. A new institution, the College of Montana, was opened Septem ber 10, 1883, under the patronage and control of the Presbyterian Church in Montana. The first president was Reverend D. J. McMillan who served until 1890. The program of the College of Montana was a blend of liberal arts and technical studies. One of the strongest departments was a " School of Mines " which offered the only work in this field in i±ie state. It helped produce a num- ber of outstanding mining engineers in the state, continuing its valuable service to young men of the region until the founding of the Montana School of Mines. In the late 1880 ' s, Montana Methodists began agitation for the establishment of a college. In 1889, the year Montana became a state, the Methodist Episco- pal Church organized Montana Wesleyan University in Helena. Technically, the name of the school was " Montana University " , a designation which continued until the state legislature restricted that name to the state University of Mon- tana. Subsequently this school became Montana Wesleyan College. Below is a photo (found in 1902) of the ruins of the College of Montana in Deer- lodge, the pioneer college of our state. U Mb
