“Finances aside, the Christians [the Christian Connextion denomination] went at the founding of their new college with missionary fervor. At their annual General Convention in 1850 at Marion, New York, they resolved to raise a sum of $100,000 “as the standard by which to measure [their]zeal and effort.’
-Scott Sanders in Cradles of Conscience
