I just took a picture of his gravestone and added it. I will add a portrait of him when I can get time to scan it (made before 1920). After I do that I will put the portrait at the top and move the gravestone to the death section. Nowimnthing 22:50, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

I think that at some point in time in the future the truth should be laid out about John F purdue This document is propaganda. - purdue university was aquired by the state after John F purdue truly (perdue)was "diagnosed with supposed mental illness" along with all other assets due to the fact that John did not have a wife. However he did have rightfull dependants and family thus the long painstaking process of litigation....and hence why no true perdue attended the university. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:22, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

lol how could the state acquire a state run institution? Look up the Morrill Act, Purdue was a donor and trustee not the owner. I would not completely rule out mental illness later in life, there may be some evidence, but we would need some solid sources before adding it. Nowimnthing (talk) 18:24, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

"following Salmon Portland Chase's office"[edit]

"In 1869, he helped found the Lafayette Savings Bank, following Salmon Portland Chase's office as Secretary of the Treasury."

What does this mean? He did not follow Chase as Secy. of the Treasury. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WithGLEE (talkcontribs) 18:28, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
