Since then, seventeen Nobel laureates have been affiliated with Case Western Reserve or one of its two predecessors. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_12

History Case Western Reserve University_section_0

Case Western Reserve University was created in 1967, when Western Reserve University (formerly Western Reserve College) and Case Institute of Technology (formerly Case School of Applied Science), institutions that had been neighbors for 81 years, formally federated. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_13

Western Reserve College (1826–1882) and University (1882–1967) Case Western Reserve University_section_1

Western Reserve College, the college of the Connecticut Western Reserve, was founded in 1826 in Hudson, Ohio, as the Western Reserve College and Preparatory School. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_14

Western Reserve College, or "Reserve" as it was popularly called, was the first college in northern Ohio. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_15

The school was called "Yale of the West"; its campus, now that of the Western Reserve Academy, imitated that of Yale. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_16

It had the same motto, "Lux et Veritas" (Light and Truth), the same entrance standards, and almost the same curriculum. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_17

The vision its founders had of Western Reserve College was that it would instill in students an "evangelical ethos", and produce ministers to remedy the acute shortage of them in Ohio. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_18

Liberal arts and sciences were important, but secondary. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_19

The college was located in Hudson because the town made the largest financial offer (to help in its construction). Case Western Reserve University_sentence_20

Hudson was a quiet antislavery center from the beginning: its founder, David Hudson, was against slavery, and founding trustee Owen Brown was a noted abolitionist who secured the location for the college. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_21

The abolitionist John Brown, who would lead the 1859 raid on Harpers Ferry, grew up in Hudson and was the son of co-founder Owen Brown. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_22

Hudson was a major stop on the Underground Railroad. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_23

Along with Presbyterian influences of its founding, the school's origins were strongly associated with the pre-Civil War Abolitionist movement, primarily due to the influence of President Charles Backus Storrs, Elizur Wright, and David Hudson. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_24

In fact, Western Reserve was the first college west of the Appalachian Mountains to enroll (1832) and graduate (1836) an African-American student, John Sykes Fayette. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_25

The abolitionist views were so strong, Frederick Douglass gave the commencement speech in 1854. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_26

In 1838, the Loomis Observatory was built by astronomer Elias Loomis, and today remains the second oldest observatory in the United States, and the oldest still in its original location. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_27

In 1852, the Medical School became the second school in the United States to graduate a woman, Nancy Talbot Clark. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_28

Five more women graduated over the next four years, including Emily Blackwell and Marie Zakrzewska, giving Western Reserve the distinction of graduating six of the first eight female physicians in the United States. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_29

By 1875, Cleveland had emerged as the dominant population and business center of the area, and the city wanted a prominent higher education institution. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_30

In 1882, with funding from Amasa Stone, Western Reserve College moved to Cleveland and changed its name to Adelbert College of Western Reserve University. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_31

Adelbert was the name of Stone's son. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_32

Case School of Applied Science (1880–1947) and Institute of Technology (1947–1967) Case Western Reserve University_section_2

In 1877, Leonard Case Jr. began laying the groundwork for the Case School of Applied Science by secretly donating valuable pieces of Cleveland real estate to a trust. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_33

He asked his confidential advisor, Henry Gilbert Abbey, to administer the trust and to keep it secret until after his death in 1880. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_34

On March 29, 1880, articles of incorporation were filed for the founding of the Case School of Applied Science. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_35

Classes began on September 15, 1881. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_36

The school received its charter by the state of Ohio in 1882. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_37

For the first four years of the school's existence, it was located in the Case family's home on Rockwell Street in downtown Cleveland. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_38

Classes were held in the family house, while the chemistry and physics laboratories were on the second floor of the barn. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_39

Amasa Stone's gift to relocate Western Reserve College to Cleveland also included a provision for the purchase of land in the University Circle area, adjacent to Western Reserve University, for the Case School of Applied Science. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_40

The school relocated to University Circle in 1885. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_41

During World War II, Case School of Applied Science was one of 131 colleges and universities nationally that took part in the V-12 Navy College Training Program which offered students a path to a Navy commission. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_42

Over time, the Case School of Applied Science expanded to encompass broader subjects, adopting the name Case Institute of Technology in 1947 to reflect the institution's growth. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_43

Led by polymer expert Eric Baer in 1963, the nation's first stand-alone Polymer Science and Engineering program was founded, to eventually become the Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_44

Federation of two universities Case Western Reserve University_section_3

Although the trustees of Case Institute of Technology and Western Reserve University did not formally federate their institutions until 1967, the institutions already shared buildings and staff when necessary and worked together often. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_45

One such example was seen in 1887, when Case physicist Albert Michelson and Reserve chemist Edward Morley collaborated on the famous Michelson–Morley experiment. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_46

There had been some discussion of a merger of the two institutions as early as 1890, but those talks dissolved quickly. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_47

In the 1920s, the Survey Commission on Higher Education in Cleveland took a strong stand in favor of federation and the community was behind the idea as well, but in the end all that came of the study was a decision by the two institutions to cooperate in founding Cleveland College, a special unit for part-time and adult students in downtown Cleveland. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_48

By the 1960s, Reserve President John Schoff Millis and Case President T. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_49 Keith Glennan shared the idea that federation would create a complete university, one better able to attain national distinction. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_50

Financed by the Carnegie Corporation, Cleveland Foundation, Greater Cleveland Associated Foundation, and several local donors, a study commission of national leaders in higher education and public policy was charged with exploring the idea of federation. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_51

The Heald Commission, so known for its chair, former Ford Foundation President Henry T. Heald, issued its final report, "Vision of a University." Case Western Reserve University_sentence_52

The report predicted that a federation could create one of the largest private universities in the nation. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_53

Case Western Reserve University (1967–present) Case Western Reserve University_section_4

In 1967, Case Institute of Technology, a school with its emphasis on engineering and science, and Western Reserve University, a school with professional programs and liberal arts, came together to form Case Western Reserve University. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_54

In 1968, the Department of Biomedical Engineering launched as a newly unified collaboration between the School of Engineering and School of Medicine as the first in the nation and as one of the first Biomedical Engineering programs in the world. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_55

The following year in 1969, the first Biomedical Engineering MD/PhD program in the world began at Case Western Reserve. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_56

The first computer engineering degree program in the United States was established in 1971 at Case Western Reserve. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_57

The "Forward Thinking" campaign was launched in 2011 by President Barbara Snyder to fundraise $1 billion, the largest in school history. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_58

The goal was reached in 2014 after 30 months. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_59

The Board of Trustees unanimously agreed to expand the campaign to $1.5 billion, which reached its mark a few years later in 2017. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_60

The campaign ultimately raised $1.82 billion. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_61

On September 29, the first 2020 United States presidential debate occurred at the Samson Pavilion of the Health Education Campus (HEC), shared by the Cleveland Clinic. Case Western Reserve University_sentence_62
