The Founding Families of the University of Missouri

This information has been provided courtesy of the University of Missouri-Columbia and the Missouri State Archives.


In early 1839 a contest was created between the central counties of Missouri to determine which county was to host the State University. To those farsighted pioneers of Boone County, we owe them a debt we can never repay.


A Bill was passed in Jefferson City that read:

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Missouri, as follows:

Sec. 1. That Peter H. Burnett, of Clay; Chancey Durkee, of Lewis, Archibald Gamble, of St. Louis; John Bryan, of Washington; and John S. Phelps, of Green county, are hereby appointed commissioners, any three of whom shall have power to act in the selection of a site for the state university.

Sec. 2. The site of the university shall contain at least forty acres of land, in a compact form, within two miles of the county seat of the county of Cole, Cooper, Howard, Boone, Callaway, or Saline, to be selected in the manner hereinafter provided.

Sec. 3. It shall be the duty of the commissioners to meet at the city of Jefferson, on the first Monday of June next, and thereafter to meet at such time as they shall appoint at the county seat of each county mentioned in the preceding section. When assembled in any county, the commissioners shall receive conveyances of such land as may be offered as a site for the university, which conveyance shall be for at least forty acres of land within the distance of the county seats above specified, and shall be made to the state, with general warranty, specifying that the land conveyed is for a site for the university and conditioned to be void if the university shall not be located thereon.

Sec. 4. Where other real estate shall be granted to the state, either by the county or private individuals, the same shall be conveyed by deed of general warranty, for the use and benefit of the university, conditioned, that the said deed shall be void if it is not located in the county making such conveyance.

Sec. 5. All the real estate conveyed, shall be examined and valued by the commissioners, keeping in view the object for which it is intended, and they shall at the time of the valuation inscribe the value thereof, upon the deeds, by which said lands are conveyed, and also place the amount of such valuation, in a book to be procured by them for that purpose, describing the lands conveyed, and naming the county wherein it is situated.

Sec. 6. The commissioners shall also receive sealed bids from the different counties and from the citizens thereof, for such sums of money and may be secured to the state for the use and benefit of the university.

Sec. 7. In all instances where individuals bid, they shall sign a subscription paper to the following effect: - "We the undersigned whose names are hereto subscribed, agree and bind ourselves to pay to the state of Missouri the sum oposite [sic] our names, one half in one, and the balance in two years, from the first day of June 1839, for the use and benefit of the state university, provided, that it is located in ___________ county, and each sum subscribed shall be written out at length in words.

Sec. 8. The commissioners shall receive, in each county from at least fifteen responsible individuals, a guarantee for the payment of the whole amount subscribed by the citizens thereof, which guarantee shall be in writing affixed at the bottom of each subscription paper, and in the following words: - "We the undersigned jointly and severally hereby guarantee the payment of each sum above subscribed." and the same shall be signed by them.

Sec. 9. After the commissioners shall have visited the different counties, and received the bids according to the provisions of this act, they shall repair to the seat of government, and the bids shall be there opened in the manner hereinafter prescribed.

Sec. 10. Each county court of the counties entitled to bid, shall appoint one citizen from their respective counties, whose duty it shall be to attend on such day at the seat of government, as shall be appointed by the commissioners for the purpose of opening and comparing the bids made by the different counties, and any county failing to bid or send a citizen, it shall not invalidate the action of the commissioners, but they shall go on with their duties in the same manner as if every county had bid and was represented.

Sec. 11. The bids shall be opened, and the additions made, in presence of the commissioners, and of the individuals, appointed by the different county courts, or such of them as are in attendance, and receive the bids of the Counties named in the second section of this act, and the place presenting the most advantages to be derived to said university, keeping in view the amount subscribed, and locality and general advantages shall be entitled to its location, and shall be published in each newspapes [sic] published in the City of Jefferson.

Sec. 12. The commissioners shall return to the counties which do not obtain the university the subscription papers, and the deeds of conveyance, which they may have received from them, or their citizens, and they shall be cancelled.

Sec. 13. If there shall be on any lands granted for the use of the University, and within two miles of the site selected, any building adapted to the use of a College or Seminary, such building shall be appropriated to such use untill [sic] other sufficient buildings shall be erected on the site of a Univesity [sic].

Sec. 14. If such lands and buildings, shall have been granted by the trustees of any incorportated College or Seminary, the corporation shall not thereby be dissolved but such College or Seminary, shall be deemed a College or Seminary of the University, and subject to regulation and government as such.

Sec. 15. Until a State University shall be instituted and incorporated, and provisions made for the government of the Colleges and Seminaries thereof, the trustees making a grant as in the preceeding [sic] section specified, shall continue to have the powers and privileges vested in them by their charter of incorporation; except the property granted by them should be vested in the State, for the uses specified in the grant.

Sec. 16. It shall be the duty of the Commissioners immediately after selecting the site for the University, to deposit with the Auditor of Public accounts, all conveyances for land, and all subscriptions within the County in which the site is selected.

Sec. 17. The Auditor of Public accounts as soon as the subscription or any part thereof shall become due, shall place the evidences of such subscription in the hands of the Attorney prosecuting for the state, in the county in which the subscribers reside for collection, taking the receipt of the Attorney therefor.

Sec. 18. It shall be the duty of such Attorney to collect the money subscribed without unnecessary delay, and cause the same to be paid into the State Treasury for the use of the University.

Sec. 19. All money which shall be collected under the provisions of the act shall be applied, so far as the same may be necessary for the purpose, to the construction of necessary buildings, on the site selected in such a manner as the General Assembly shall by law direct.

Sec. 30. [sic] Any vacancy happening in the board of Commissioners either by death or otherwise, the remaining Commissioners shall fill the same, but shall select no person having a direct interest in choosing the site, and who does not live at least 100 miles from each county entitled to bid.
