History

  • In 1854, Hamline University was founded and named after Methodist Bishop Leonidas Lent Hamline, who provided US$25,000 of his own money to launch the school. The university opened in Red Wing, MN, with the premise that the school would eventually move to Saint Paul. A statue of the bishop, sculpted by the late Professor of Art Michael Price, stands on campus.
  • In 1869, the university shut down its operations after enrollment dropped drastically due to the Civil War. The first building at the Red Wing site was torn down in 1872.
  • A new building opened in 1880 in Saint Paul's Midway neighborhood housing 113 students. The building burned in 1883, and the following year, a new building was developed: Old Main, Hamline's oldest remaining building.
  • In 1917, Hamline actively responded to the call of World War I by incorporating an Army Training Corps at the university. More buildings developed after WWI. By 1928, Hamline consisted of Old Main (classrooms and administration), Manor House (women's residence hall), a Methodist Church, and Goheen Hall (men's residence hall).
  • Hamline faced tough challenges during the U.S. economic depression of the early 1930s. After World War II, Hamline's choir and theater department became a musical reference in Minnesota. The choir would eventually become nationally renowned, and would travel overseas.
  • By 1950, enrollment surpassed 1000 students, and the board of directors decided on further development. New developments included two new residential halls (Sorin and Drew halls), a cultural center (Bush Student Center), a new carpentry center (VanHemert Hall) a new arts center, and a new science center (Drew Hall of Science). All of these projects were completed in the mid 1960s.
  • In 2004, Hamline celebrated its 150th anniversary with many events throughout the year. The celebration began with an opening ceremony on March 1, 2004. The event was complete with speeches from the deans and president, a video looking back on the history of Hamline and a fireworks display. The event itself was held in front of Old Main, with the fireworks being shot out behind the under-construction Klas Center. Throughout the year, every department in the university held a public event related to the 150-year anniversary. The slogan for the event was "Looking back. Thinking forward."

On February 9, 1895 Hamline hosted the first intercollegiate basketball game in history when the "Minnesota State School of Agriculture" (now known as the St. Paul Campus of the University of Minnesota) defeated Hamline by a score of 9-3.
