University History

The Medical College of Louisiana was formed in 1834, mainly in reaction to fears of smallpox, yellow fever, and cholera in the United States. By 1847, the Medical College of Louisiana had become a newly established public institution, the University of Louisiana. However, in 1884, wealthy trader Paul Tulane, a native of Princeton, New Jersey, wished to thank the city that had given him his fortune. "For the development and advancement of intellectual, moral, and industrial education," he donated more than $1 million in land, cash, and securities. And as a result, the University of Louisiana became Tulane University. Tulane's Coordinating College for Women, H. Sophie Newcomb Memorial College, was founded in 1886. Tulane University, founded more than 180 years ago, has grown into one of the country's most prestigious educational and research institutions. Tulane is a member of the distinguished Association of American Universities, a select organization of 62 major research universities in the United States and Canada that offer "preeminent graduate and professional education and intellectual research."
