IV. A HISTORICAL STATEMENT The Baptist Union Theological Seminary was originally established and is still controlled by corporation known as “The Baptist Theological Union located at Chicago.” The institution was fully organized in 1867, and for twenty-five years enjoyed an uninterrupted prosperity. The number of students, attracted from all parts of the country, increased annually; able scholars were enrolled on the faculty of instruction; men of eminent business ability and large liberality managed the finances, and provided the buildings, libraries, and endowments.

When Mr. Rockefeller made his first subscription of $1,000,000 to the University, he made it a condition of the gift that the Seminary should become the Divinity School of the University. In order to realize this condition he further stipulated that $100,000 of his subscription should be used for the erection of a building for the Seminary on the University campus, and that $100,000 of it should be set apart for the further endowment of the Seminary. In keeping with these requirements Articles of Agreement were entered into between the boards of the two institutions by which the Theological Seminary became the Divinity School of the University of Chicago.
