Western & Leander Clark Colleges (IA)

An article on Leander Clark College written by Mike Donahey is included in the August 2009 issue of the past times supplement to the Marshalltown, Iowa Times-Republican.

Western-Leander Clark College, is also available through the Open Library. The history was written by Henry W. Ward and published by Otterbein Press in 1911. Ward covers the founding of the institution as Western College in 1856 and the later move to Toledo, IA and the name change to Leander Clark College. The college closed after 1919 following a devastating fire and merged with Coe College.
