In the fall of 1868, Rev. Butterfield, fundraiser for Lincoln College, traveled to New England. Someone recommended that he visit Ichabod Washburn, a wealthy and philanthropic businessman. Washburn had retired and was not in good health, but upon hearing about the college in Kansas that was educating women and African Americans, causes that he supported, he pledged $25,000. In gratitude for this pledge, the Board of Trustees voted on November 19, 1868 to change the school’s name to Washburn College. #ThrowbackThursday #WashburnTBT "The President read letters from Professor Butterfield containing the proposition of Deacon Ichabod Washburn, of Worcester Massachusetts, to donate to the College the sum of $25,000, and suggesting the propriety of changing the name of the College to Washburn College."
