Note:
Washington and Jefferson College is one of the oldest colleges in the United States. Between 1781 and 1787, three Presbyterian ministers established schools in Washington County, then the frontier of the American west. The Rev. Thaddeus Dod, the Rev. Joseph Smith, and the Rev. John McMillan then decided to establish a single academy with better facilities than they possessed individually. In September 1787, a charter was granted for an academy to be situated in Washington, the county seat. On April 10, 1789, Washington Academy opened. A few years later, a move to establish a school in nearby Canonsburg resulted in a charter being issued faculty members in 1794 for “The Canonsburg Academy and Library Company.” In 1802, this school was chartered by the Pennsylvania legislature as Jefferson College. Four years later, Washington Academy received its charter as Washington College. Rivalry between the two small colleges, located in towns only ten miles apart, served to block the progress of both. Lack of money was a hindrance to their development. From time to time, suggestions were heard that the two colleges merge, but nothing developed until inadequate financial resources and the decline in enrollment at both schools because of the Civil War made such a step necessary. In March 1865, the Pennsylvania legislature granted a charter for a united college, but with the provision that some classes be taught in Canonsburg and others in Washington. This arrangement proved impractical, and in 1869, the legislature authorized reorganization of the College. Two months later, the trustees voted that all departments be located in Washington.
