History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Columbia College was originally founded as King's College in 1754 with a Royal Charter from King George II, and situated at Wall Street. The first president and first professor was Samuel Johnson. In 1767, Samuel Bard established a medical college as part of King's College. Instruction was suspended from 1776 to 1784 during the Revolutionary War; after the end of the war, King's College was renamed Columbia College to reflect the new independence from Britain. The College was temporarily a state institution until 1787, until it was incorporated under a private board of trustees, which remains in effect today.

A second campus existed on Park Place, but shortly thereafter moved to 49th Street and Madison Avenue in 1857. This location remained for forty years, and expanded to include Columbia Law School and Columbia School of Mines (now The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science). In 1890, President Seth Low advocated to divide the individual schools and colleges into distinct entities under the university's central administration, which came to include Barnard College in 1889 and Teachers College in 1891. In 1896, the trustees approved renaming the university as Columbia University in the City of New York, and Columbia College came to refer solely to the original undergraduate college. President Low also moved the Madison Avenue campus to its current location in Morningside Heights. This campus was designed by Charles McKim.
