The name was revised in 1884 when the university was reorganized into the private Tulane University of Louisiana. The university was transferred from state control and renamed in honor of benefactor Paul Tulane, a wealthy merchant who bequeathed more than $1 million to endow a university for the city where he had earned his fortune. Today, it is commonly referred to as Tulane University.
