OLD UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO

Main article: Old University

The University
University
of Chicago
Chicago
was founded by a small group of Baptist educators in 1856 through a land endowment from Senator Stephen A. Douglas . Disparagingly called "Douglas College" by its detractors, the University
University
of Chicago's original ten-acre campus was on the northwest corner of 35th Street and Cottage Grove Avenue, a neighborhood known as Bronzeville . Local Baptist congregations secured donations to help partially finance construction of the elaborate Gothic-style building, named Douglas Hall, in 1857, with loans collateralized against the Douglas land used to secure the balance.

From the moment of its founding the university was marred in controversy due to Senator Douglas's support of slavery and his authorship of the Kansas-Nebraska Act
Kansas-Nebraska Act
. Early fundraising efforts were further hampered as Douglas came under heavy fire during the run-up to the 1860 presidential election for his ownership of 123 slaves and a 3000-acre cotton plantation in Lawrence County, Mississippi. In response, trustees further encumbered the land to fund the university's operations while funneling cash donations to a separate account for what is today the University
University
of Chicago
Chicago
Divinity School (which temporarily moved to a separate campus in Morgan Park before rejoining the larger university in its current location in Hyde Park location in 1891).

The old Bronzeville campus left a deep and lasting legacy on the University
University
of Chicago. The affinity for Gothic architecture first began in 1857 at the Bronzeville campus as did the University
University
of Chicago's tradition of public debate as sport. The current quarter system practiced at the University

was an innovation that began at the Bronzeville campus and continues uninterrupted to this day. Alumni from the pre-1890 Bronzville campus are recognized as alumni of the University

today while more than half of the university's post-1890 trustees and donors (including its largest donor John D. Rockefeller

) had a relationship to the University

Chicago
prior to 1890. The university's current mascot of a Phoenix rising from the ashes is a reference to the fire, foreclosure, and demolition of the original Bronzeville campus with the current Hyde Park campus emerging triumphantly in its place. As an homage to this pre-1890 legacy a single stone from the rubble of the original Douglas Hall in Bronzeville was brought to the current Hyde Park location and set into the wall of the Classics Building. To honor Stephen A. Douglas, a bronze bust of the university's founding donor was placed in Hutchinson Commons which is today the main dining hall and student center on campus. All told these connections have led the current Dean of the College

and Professor of History John Boyer to conclude that the University

was incorporated as a coeducational , secular institution in 1890 by the American Baptist Education Society and a donation from oil magnate and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller on land donated by Marshall Field . While the Rockefeller donation provided money for academic operations and long-term endowment, it was stipulated that such money could not be used for buildings. The Hyde Park campus was financed by donations from wealthy Chicagoans like Silas B. Cobb who provided the funds for the campus' first building, Cobb Lecture Hall , and matched Marshall Field's pledge of $100,000. Other early benefactors included businessmen Charles L. Hutchinson (trustee, treasurer and donor of Hutchinson Commons ), Martin A. Ryerson (president of the board of trustees and donor of the Ryerson Physical Laboratory) Adolphus Clay Bartlett and Leon Mandel, who funded the construction of the gymnasium and assembly hall, and George C. Walker of the Walker Museum , a relative of Cobb who encouraged his inaugural donation for facilities.

While legally organized as an independent institution, the Hyde Park campus continued the mission, legacy, and name of the original Baptist university of the same name , which had closed in 1886 after its campus was foreclosed on. William Rainey Harper became the university's president on July 1, 1891, and the Hyde Park campus opened for classes on October 1, 1892.

Harper was an accomplished scholar (Semiticist) and a member of the Baptist clergy who believed that a great university should maintain the study of faith as a central focus, to prepare students for careers in teaching and research and ministers for service to the church and community. As per this commitment, he brought the University
University
of Chicago's Seminary to Hyde Park which had remained continually in operation after the loss of the Bronzeville campus through the Baptist Theological Union in Morgan Park. The name was changed to the Divinity School in 1891 as the first professional school at the University
University
of Chicago.

Harper recruited acclaimed Yale baseball and football player Amos Alonzo Stagg from the Young Men\'s Christian Association training school at Springfield to coach the school's football program. Stagg was given a position on the faculty, the first such athletic position in the United States. While coaching at the University, Stagg invented the numbered football jersey, the huddle, and the lighted playing field. Stagg is the namesake of the university's Stagg Field
Stagg Field
.

The business school was founded thereafter in 1898, and the law school was founded in 1902. Harper died in 1906, and was replaced by a succession of three presidents whose tenures lasted until 1929. During this period, the Oriental Institute was founded to support and interpret archeological work in what was then called the Near East.

In the 1890s, the University
University
of Chicago, fearful that its vast resources would injure smaller schools by drawing away good students, affiliated with several regional colleges and universities: Des Moines College
College
, Kalamazoo College , Butler University , and Stetson University
University
. In 1896, the university affiliated with Shimer College in Mount Carroll, Illinois. Under the terms of the affiliation, the schools were required to have courses of study comparable to those at the university, to notify the university early of any contemplated faculty appointments or dismissals, to make no faculty appointment without the university's approval, and to send copies of examinations for suggestions. The University
University
of Chicago
Chicago
agreed to confer a degree on any graduating senior from an affiliated school who made a grade of A for all four years, and on any other graduate who took twelve weeks additional study at the University
University
of Chicago. A student or faculty member of an affiliated school was entitled to free tuition at the University
University
of Chicago, and Chicago
Chicago
students were eligible to attend an affiliated school on the same terms and receive credit for their work. The University
University
of Chicago
Chicago
also agreed to provide affiliated schools with books and scientific apparatus and supplies at cost; special instructors and lecturers without cost except travel expenses; and a copy of every book and journal published by the University
University
of Chicago Press at no cost. The agreement provided that either party could terminate the affiliation on proper notice. Several University
University
of Chicago
Chicago
professors disliked the program, as it involved uncompensated additional labor on their part, and they believed it cheapened the academic reputation of the university. The program passed into history by 1910.

1920S–1980S

In 1929, the university's fifth president, Robert Maynard Hutchins , took office; the university underwent many changes during his 24-year tenure. Hutchins eliminated varsity football from the university in an attempt to emphasize academics over athletics, instituted the undergraduate college's liberal-arts curriculum known as the Common Core, and organized the university's graduate work into four divisions. In 1933, Hutchins proposed an unsuccessful plan to merge the University
University

Chicago
and Northwestern University

into a single university. During his term, the University

Hospitals (now called the University of Chicago Medical Center ) finished construction and enrolled its first medical students. Also, the Committee on Social Thought , an institution distinctive of the university, was created. Some of the University

in the front row and Leó Szilárd in the second.

Money that had been raised during the 1920s and financial backing from the Rockefeller Foundation helped the school to survive through the Great Depression

. During World War II, the university made important contributions to the Manhattan Project . The university was the site of the first isolation of plutonium and of the creation of the first artificial, self-sustained nuclear reaction by Enrico Fermi in 1942.

It has been noted that the University
University
of Chicago
Chicago
did not provide standard oversight regarding Bruno Bettelheim and his tenure as director of the Orthogenic School for Disturbed Children from 1944 to 1973.

In the early 1950s, student applications declined as a result of increasing crime and poverty in the Hyde Park neighborhood. In response, the university became a major sponsor of a controversial urban renewal project for Hyde Park , which profoundly affected both the neighborhood's architecture and street plan. During this period the university, like Shimer College and 10 others, adopted an early entrant program that allowed very young students to attend college; in addition, students enrolled at Shimer were enabled to transfer automatically to the University
University
of Chicago
Chicago
after their second year, having taken comparable or identical examinations and courses.

The university experienced its share of student unrest during the 1960s, beginning in 1962, when then-freshman Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders
helped lead a 15-day sit-in at the college\'s administration building in a protest over the university's off-campus rental policies. After continued turmoil, a university committee in 1967 issued what became known as the Kalven Report. The report, a two-page statement of the university's policy in "social and political action," declared that "To perform its mission in the society, a university must sustain an extraordinary environment of freedom of inquiry and maintain an independence from political fashions, passions, and pressures." The report has since been used to justify decisions such as the university's refusal to divest from South Africa in the 1980s and Darfur in the late 2000s.

In 1969, more than 400 students, angry about the dismissal of a popular professor, Marlene Dixon , occupied the Administration Building for two weeks. After the sit-in ended, when Dixon turned down a one-year reappointment, 42 students were expelled and 81 were suspended, the most severe response to student occupations of any American university during the student movement.

In 1978, Hanna Holborn Gray , then the provost and acting president of Yale University

University
of Chicago, a position she held for 15 years.

1990S–2010S

View from the Midway Plaisance

In 1999, then-President Hugo Sonnenschein announced plans to relax the university's famed core curriculum , reducing the number of required courses from 21 to 15. When The New York Times
The New York Times
, The Economist

, and other major news outlets picked up this story, the university became the focal point of a national debate on education. The changes were ultimately implemented, but the controversy played a role in Sonnenschein's decision to resign in 2000.

From the mid-2000s, the university began a number of multimillion-dollar expansion projects. In 2008, the University
University
of Chicago
Chicago
announced plans to establish the Milton Friedman Institute , which attracted both support and controversy from faculty members and students. The institute will cost around $200 million and occupy the buildings of the Chicago
Chicago
Theological Seminary . During the same year, investor David G. Booth donated $300 million to the university's Booth School of Business , which is the largest gift in the university's history and the largest gift ever to any business school. In 2009, planning or construction on several new buildings, half of which cost $100 million or more, was underway. Since 2011, major construction projects have included the Jules and Gwen Knapp Center for Biomedical Discovery, a ten-story medical research center, and further additions to the medical campus of the University
University
of Chicago Medical Center . In 2014 the University

launched the public phase of a $4.5 billion fundraising campaign. In September 2015, the University

. The northern and southern portions of campus are separated by the Midway Plaisance , a large, linear park created for the 1893 World\'s Columbian Exposition . In 2011, Travel+Leisure listed the university as one of the most beautiful college campuses in the United States. Cobb Lecture Hall , part of the Main Quadrangles, was the first and most expensive of the campus' original 16 buildings. Designed by Henry Ives Cobb (no relation to benefactor Silas B. Cobb ) and constructed in 1892, it was modeled after Gothic buildings at University

employ Collegiate Gothic architecture like that of the University
University
of Oxford. For example, Chicago's Mitchell Tower (left) was modeled after Oxford's Magdalen Tower (right).

After the 1940s, the Gothic style on campus began to give way to modern styles. In 1955, Eero Saarinen was contracted to develop a second master plan, which led to the construction of buildings both north and south of the Midway, including the Laird Bell Law Quadrangle (a complex designed by Saarinen); a series of arts buildings; a building designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

is governed by a board of trustees. The Board of Trustees oversees the long-term development and plans of the university and manages fundraising efforts, and is composed of 55 members including the university President. Directly beneath the President are the Provost, fourteen Vice Presidents (including the Chief Financial Officer, Chief Investment Officer , and Vice President for Campus Life and Student Services), the Directors of Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab

, the Secretary of the university, and the Student Ombudsperson . As of May 2016 , the Chairman of the Board of Trustees is Joseph Neubauer , and the President of the university is Robert Zimmer . In December 2013 it was announced that the Director of Argonne National Laboratory, Eric Isaacs , would become Provost. Isaacs was replaced as Provost in March 2016 by Daniel Diermeier .

The university's endowment was the 12th largest among American educational institutions and state university systems in 2013 and as of 2015 was valued at $7.6 billion. Part of President Zimmer's financial plan for the university has been an increase in accumulation of debt to finance large building projects. This has drawn support and criticism from many in the university community.

grants Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in 51 academic majors and 33 minors. The college's academics are divided into five divisions: the Biological Sciences Collegiate Division, the Physical Sciences Collegiate Division, the Social Sciences Collegiate Division, the Humanities Collegiate Division, and the New Collegiate Division. The first four are sections within their corresponding graduate divisions, while the New Collegiate Division administers interdisciplinary majors and studies which do not fit in one of the other four divisions.

Undergraduate students are required to take a distribution of courses to satisfy the university's general education requirements, commonly known as the Common Core. In 2012-2013, the Core classes at Chicago were limited to 17 courses, and are generally led by a full-time professor (as opposed to a teaching assistant ). As of the 2013–2014 school year, 15 courses and demonstrated proficiency in a foreign language are required under the Core. Undergraduate courses at the University

Controversies Surrounding Bettelheim

Bruno Bettelheim was the director of the Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School from 1944 to 1973. After his death, it was revealed that his degree was either in art history or philosophy (aesthetics). He had only taken three introductory courses in psychology.

Although Bettelheim insisted in print that one should never hit children, there are multiple reports that he frequently hit residential students at the school. Counselors at the school tended to perceive the use of corporal punishment, whereas many students perceived rage and out-of-control violence. Richard Pollak's biography of Bettelheim contains reports from two separate women that he fondled their breasts and those of other female students while apologizing for beatings.

A September 10, 1990 Newsweek

article stated: "There are indications that at least the local psychiatric community knew exactly what was going on, and did nothing. Chicago
Chicago
analysts scathingly referred to the doctor as 'Beno Brutalheim.'" In an April 4, 1991, letter to the Chicago
Chicago
Reader , former student Alida Jatich (1966-72) asked, "Who are these analysts? Why didn't they warn the university and our parents? Why are they still keeping silent?"

In a 1990 Chicago
Chicago
Tribune article, Ralph Tyler, who first brought Bettelheim to the University
University
of Chicago, said he assumed Bettelheim had two PhD's, one in art history and the other in psychology. The university's official biography of Bettelheim in 1990 only credited him with one PhD and did not specify the field. In a 1997 article in First Things , author Molly Finn wrote, "It is possible to believe that soon after the war the University
University
of Chicago
Chicago
might have had some difficulty in readily verifying the information Bettelheim presented in his falsified curriculum vitae. But it is deplorable that the institution supported Bettelheim's work without ever setting up the oversight committee or board of visitors it usually appointed. The University

never held Bettelheim accountable for anything he did or claimed to do."

improv theater troupe in 1959. The Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts opened in October 2012, five years after a $35 million gift from alumnus David Logan and his wife Reva. The center includes spaces for exhibitions, performances, classes, and media production. The Logan Center was designed by Tod Williams and Billie Tsien. This building is actually entirely glass. The brick is a facade designed to keep the glass safe from the wind. The architects later removed sections of the bricks when pressure arose in the form of complaints that the views of the city were blocked.
