The Organization and Administration of Teachers College: The Organization of Columbia University


by James E. Russell - 1900

On October 31, 1754, during the reign of George II., His Majesty's Letters Patent under the Great Seal of the Province were issued, incorporating " The Governors of the College of the Province of New York, in the City of New York, in America," and providing for the establishment of a College, to be known as " King's College," " for the instruction and Education of Youth in the Learned Languages and in the Liberal Arts and Sciences." The purpose of the College as stated at that time was to instruct students in '' every Thing that can contribute to their true Happiness both here and hereafter." The charter named as Governors the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Governor of the Province, certain officers of the Crown, ex officio, the Rector of Trinity Church, and the Ministers of the Reformed Dutch, Lutheran, French, and Presbyterian Churches for the time being, and twenty-four residents of the city. Under this charter King's College was founded, continuing to be known by that name until 1784, when it was reorganized by act of the Legislature of the State of New York, which changed the name to Columbia College.
