Anderson Normal University (IN)

Stephen T. Jackson authored a March 2012 article for The Herald Bulletin in Anderson, IN on Anderson Normal University.  The institution opened in 1896 and closed in 1914.

Jackson's article includes a list of faculty and also has notes on a couple of other institutions founded in the city.  The Anderson Business College was formed in 1904 by the purchase and consolidation of the Bliss Business University and the Anderson Business School. It was later operated as a branch of the Indiana Business College, now Harrison College.

Another institution was founded in 1917 as the Anderson Bible Training School and changed its name to Anderson College and Theological Seminary, then Anderson College and finally Anderson University.
