It is my opinion that few people of this vicinity know of the great struggle and courageous sacrifices made by the founders of Fairmount College, now the University of Wichita. Thus far some material has been collected, but very little has been done toward the compilation of this work. It has, therefore, been my purpose to write about the beginning of Fairmount College. I believe that the story of Fairmount should be preserved, and in this work, I have made a beginning by writing the history of the school to the year 1907. This period includes the plans for starting the school, erecting a building, and the administration of Dr. N. J . Morrison, the first college president.
