STUDENTS & FACULTY

The school had about 80,000 graduates. The names of a small handful of them (as submitted by researchers or as posted elsewhere on the internet) are listed below. The list is slowly growing. If you would like to add your ancestor to this list, send an email to Arne H Trelvik with whatever information you might have about their attendance at the school. I'd be happy to include a photo and short bio if you have them.

    • 16 Dec 2020 Roger L. Gansauer email:
      "I am researching my maternal grandmother's family and am seeking information on William N. DeBolt from Carroll County, Indiana. In a narrative that his daughter (my great-grandmother) wrote she said that he graduated from the Normal School. This most likely would have been in the mid-1860's since in 1868 he went to Shurtleff College in Upper Alton, Illinois where he graduated in 1871. He was a Baptist minister so I believe he went to Shurtleff for his divinity degree."
