Guadalupe College in Seguin, Texas, was an educational institution for African Americans. It was established in 1884 and opened officially in 1887.[1] Its founding were largely through the efforts of William B. Ball, who would later serve as president. The school's first president was David Abner Jr., a position he served until 1905.[2] The school's main building was destroyed by a fire in 1936. A fundraising drive was called off in 1937 and the school largely ceased operations.[3]
