Brevard College, on their website and in school publications, writes that they were founded in 1853. However, this date is the year Rutherford College (which merged with Weaver College in 1934) was founded. Brevard College did not exist until this 1934 merger. (More background here on the history of the college). I beleive 1934 is the "correct" founding date becasue this was when Brevard was actually formed; 1853 is the year that the college's history begins. I am a Brevard student and can answer any questions my fellow wikipedians have concerning the college's history. However, I may be unavailable for extended periods of time as I am a full-time student and often cannot work on wikipedia most of the time. I have added some stuff to the article, but it is far from perfect. I will continue to work to expand it. --Toucan6 07:35, 3 January 2006 (UTC)
