Excerpt from Rudder, 1919: Containing the Year's Addition to Buena Vista's Store of Tradition

The germ from which Buena Vista College has grown was in the idea Of taking charge of the Calliope Academy which was proposed to the Fort Dodge Presbytery in 1883. The following April, Fort Dodge was chosen as the location for a Presbyterian College and m the fall of 1885, the Fort Dodge Institute was Opened with Rev. F. L. Kenyon as president. Two years later, it was decided that the school would not thrive there and a new location was sought. Fortunately, the Storm Lake Town Lot and Land Company Offered a gift of eighty acres and twenty - five thousand dollars in buildings or in money. The title of the land was to be vested in seventeen trustees, nine of whom were to be chosen by the company. These were E. E. Mack, j..r. Lemon, J. C. Felt, Geo. Witter, A. D. Bailie, S. J. Powell, W. C. Kinne, E. C.

Cowles, and J. P. Morey. School was conducted in an Opera house until a building could be completed.
