TEXAS PRESBYTERIAN UNIVERSITY
TEXAS PRESBYTERIAN UNIVERSITY. In the late 1890s both northern and southern Presbyterian churches united to plan a large Presbyterian university. On February 19, 1896, a charter was granted, and in 1907 J. S. Armstrong donated a 100-acre tract in Highland Park, Texas. The endowment goal of $2 million was never subscribed, and the project ended.
