December 29th, 1841 - Howard College Incorporated

Although the celebration of Samford's 175th anniversary has been in full swing for a little while now, it was on this day in 1841 that the state of Alabama officially recognized Samford University as a corporate institution of academic learning. The school was incorporated as Howard College in Marion, Alabama under the leadership of 15 trustees.  Happy Birthday, Samford!
