Untitled[edit]

Robert Todd Lincoln appears to have attended Harvard Law School, lacking any affiliation to Chicago.

I just uploaded the pictures I took from when I was visiting. The plaque was inside an arrow that was pointing at the building. I assume that means the building was part of the old university. If I'm wrong on that then I apologize, but it couldn't seem any more obvious that's what they were trying to say. Aptitude 21:44, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

He completed his law degree at the law school of the Old U of Chicago, per the NPS.Parkwells (talk) 19:44, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

So the picture of students makes it look like the old university was also coeducational, which even the later university of chicago was radical for this when it was founded. Does anyone know whether this is true? It would certainly seem to belong in the article if so. --78.42.126.90 (talk) 20:28, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Added - a woman was awarded a law degree in 1870, and the cite says she was likely the first woman to get a degree from the U of Chicago. Another was apparently admitted on some basis and the faculty decided to take up the issue. In 1872 the faculty voted to admit qualified women to all of the school. (She had been in the law school, which had separate admissions.)Parkwells (talk) 19:29, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

List of presidents?[edit]

Would be good. Have found the first, J. C. Burroughs, who later taught at U of Chicago in the Divinity School, and 5th, Galusha Anderson.Parkwells (talk) 19:29, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

Delete Bayard Holmes as graduate[edit]

He attended Paw Paw Institute (equivalent to high school) in IL, and the Chicago Homeopathic Medical College, according to his papers held at U of Chicago.Parkwells (talk) 20:10, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
