History

Three years after thirteen clergymen and laymen founded the Baptist Education Society of the State of New York, they opened the school. In 1823, the Baptist Theological Seminary at New York City incorporated with the Baptist Education Society, which then formed the Hamilton Literary & Theological Institution. The founder of the Colgate Company, William Colgate, is one of the trustees. His son, James B. Colgate, established the Dodge Memorial Fund, and the school changed its name to Colgate University in recognition of the Colgate family. The university was one of 131 institutions during WWII that participated in the V-12 Navy College Training Program.
