Ed: Yes, I was surprised to hear that from the woman who was attending the Bacone booth at the ABC Biennial when I snapped that picture. I thought I had lost it some way, but to day I was working on Trudy's new computer and it was there.

Surprised to hear David had rotated off the board, or surprised to hear Bacone was doing fine, or both?

Ed: Well Since Bacone is one of our churches mission projects I was not surprised to hear that Bacone is doing fine. Before hearing it at the Biennial last June I was not aware that David had rotated off of the board.

Time to clean my glasses again-- I thought it was a misspelling of bacon. I want a BLT if we have a tomato left. :D

    Yeah, time to clean your glasses. That was funny...

    Bacone College (pronounced "bāy-cōne") was founded by Almon C Bacone, who hailed from the state of New York. Bacone College is the oldest continuously operated institution of higher education in Oklahoma.

        The statue was created by Kelly Haney, who is a graduate of Bacone College.

      Haney also is the creator of the statue ("The Guardian") that sits atop the dome of the Oklahoma State Capital Building

From Joseph Patrick...

David said "Bacone College (pronounced "bāy-cōne") was founded by Almon C Bacone, who hailed from the state of New York. Bacone College is the oldest continuously operated institution of higher education in Oklahoma."

What about Northeastern State at Tahlequah? On my college ring it lists 1846 as the founding date.

    Patrick, I really don't know much about the history of NEOSU, but the key to my comment is that Bacone is the oldest continuously operated institution of higher education in Oklahoma (134 years of continuous operation.). (Source)

    Based on my limited research, the school that became NEOSU was founded on May 7, 1851, as the Cherokee National Female Seminary. The school now known as Northeastern Oklahoma State University commenced operations in 1909. It wasn't until after statehood (1907) that NEOSU became an institution of higher learning (i.e. a college). On March 6, 1909, the State Legislature of Oklahoma passed an act providing for the creation and location of Northeastern State Normal School at Tahlequah. As a college, NEOSU can trace back to 1909. The university celebrated its centennial in 2009. (Source) Bacone celebrated their centennial in 1980.

    Incidentally, Bacone (located in Muskogee) and NEOSU (located in Tahlequah) are separated by only 29 miles.

Cherokee National Female Seminary. Hmm. Were the Tsalagi giving their women MDivs in the antebellum West? (Antebellum only, of course, from the perspective of the South.)

Ed: Of course Hauro I think you already knew this:
One entry found for seminary.
Main Entry: sem·i·nary
Pronunciation: primarystresssem-schwa-secondarystressner-emacron
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural -nar·ies
Etymology: Middle English seminary "seedbed, nursery, from Latin seminarium (same meaning), from semen "seed"
1 : a private school at or above the high school level
2 : a school for the training of priests, ministers, or rabbis
Word History The English word seminary and its Latin source seminarium, a derivative of semen, "seed," both originally denoted a nursery for young plants. Roman authors sometimes used the Latin word figuratively, but English has gone much further in extending the meaning of the word, while the old sense "nursery for plants" is now obsolete. The use of seminary in reference to training schools for Roman Catholic clergy dates from the 16th century. Today the word refers equally to Catholic, Protestant, or Jewish colleges for training priests, ministers, or rabbis. Seminary has also been applied to other kinds of schools. When they were first formed in the 19th century, colleges for women were called "female seminaries" or "seminaries for young ladies."

The source Is Webster's Dictionary.

Three little maids who all unwary
Come from a ladies' seminary,
Freed from its genius tutelary,
Three little maids.........from school!

Don't forget the Three Stooges flouncing around chanting "Rooty toot toot. Rooty toot toot! We're the girls from the Institute!"

A cousin quips: Yes, Mother enrolled at the Normal School. It didn't work. :lol:

If I had any girls I'd send them to shellacking school, so they'd learn a useful trade.
