Texas Christian University
Fort Worth, United States - Texas


University description (as per official university website)


When the Civil War ended in the United States in 1865, General Robert E. Lee was invited to lend his name to several business enterprises for money. Instead of accepting the lucrative offers, General Lee decided to give the remainder of his life to education. In explanation, he wrote, "The best thing that any man can do for the South is to build it with citizens."

Addison Clark, another former Confederate Army officer, made a similar statement about the same time without knowing that Lee had taken such a stand.

Addison and his brother, Randolph (also a former Confederate officer), came home to Fort Worth determined to educate young men and women as Christian citizens who would help rebuild the shattered nation. Their initial plans to teach in a public school were thwarted when the federal government passed a law that came to be called the "Iron Bound Oath" which prohibited any individual who had ever fought against the federal government from ever holding any position of honor or trust in the public sector. The law essentially disenfranchised every confederate veteran from ever holding office - including teaching in public schools.

The two brothers decided to open a private school and began teaching classes in 1868 on a site located in downtown Fort Worth where the First Christian Church now stands.

By 1869, their father, Joseph Clark, was so encouraged by their endeavors that he bought a plot of land on which to build a school near the site of the present convention center.
