Morgan State College was organized under the auspices of the
Methodist Episcopal Church in 1867, as the Centennial Biblical Insti-
tute. The school remained under church jurisdiction until its pur-
chase by the State of Maryland in 1939. The name of the school was
changed to Morgan College In 1890 in honor of Dr. Lyttleton Morgan
whose gift of a large sum of money to the institution enabled it to
offer academic work on a collegiate level. The College moved to its
present location on Hillen Road in 1917 from its former location on
Edmondson Avenue, Baltimore. Morgan State College is under the
direction of a Board of Trustees of nine members, appointed by the
Governor for terms of nine years, the term of one member expiring
each year. The administration of the College is vested in the Presi-
dent who is appointed by the Board of Trustees (Code 1947, Supp.,
Art. 65A).

Morgan State College is an institution of higher learning for Negro
youth devoting its primary efforts to the training of prospective teach-
ers for the junior and senior high schools, and the preparation of
students for entrance to graduate and professional schools. It also
offers courses for women in homemaking and prepares students for
employment in recreational and leisure-time activities through its
departments of music, drama, and physical education. Through
courses in commerce, training is given to students looking forward to
careers in business. In order to perform these functions the College
operates in three divisions: (1) The College which is at the campus on
Hillen Road offers a standard four-year course in the liberal arts and
teacher training; (2) The Summer School, which meets at the Hillen
Road campus for six weeks each summer and is designed primarily to
offer "in-service-training" to colored teachers in Maryland schools;
(3) The Evening School which is operated in cooperation with the
Department of Education of the City of Baltimore; courses are given
each evening throughout the academic year at Douglass High School
providing an opportunity for youth and adults to secure instruction
on the college level and to provide "in-service-training" to teachers
in the Baltimore area. During the academic year 1949-50, Morgan
had a net enrollment in all divisions of 2897, with 1703 regular stu-
dents, 403 evening students, and 701 summer students.
