History of Ball State University HONR 199-3 Notes taken in class January 15 th Homework: Start reading All Standing – will talk about the first half of the book on Monday the 25 th Names written on the board include: Ben Wattenberg Robert Lynd – wrote the book Middletown in 1929 (survey research and drawing conclusions) Identified two classes in Muncie; the working class and the business class. The business class worked with people and provided services. Lynd determined that Ball State was essential to the development of the middle class and the development of the new Muncie. The Ball brothers were trying to save the neighborhood of the business class. There was no progress in 1919, but by 1929, Muncie was doing very well. Helen Lynd (helped Robert Lynd with Middletown) Theodore Caplow, David Kennedy, Nancy Koehn, John D. Rockefeller Jr. George N. Higman George N. Higman was the first person who was an advocate for state education on the east side of Indiana. He wanted to start a normal (teaching) school in Muncie. From 1899 to 1901, the East Indiana Normal University ran. He was a businessman who sold real-estate and loaned money. He knew that if a college started, people would buy real-estate on the outskirts of Muncie (or Normal City at the time). Kumler is hired to come in and work for the university (The Ball family was not involved with this initial effort). The college fails after about two years and Francis A. Palmer buys the school for a hundred thousand dollars. Palmer dies soon after and his children don’t want the school. From 1905 to 1907 the college is known as the Indiana Normal School and College Applied Tech. The Ball brothers then obtain the college ask other universities to move to Muncie. They try Taylor University first, which almost moved. Then F.C. tries Tri-State, which couldn’t get enough students. From 1912 to 1917, Michal Kelly comes and wants to build a hotel training school (Muncie National Institute). Kelly had a promise of support from five leading hotels if he could get the school out of debt. Kelly ties for five years but does not succeed. The college files bankruptcy. Muncie attorney, Robe Carl White make a bid of $35,100 for the college (although there were 2 other bidders who gave greater bids, the college was given to White). White was representing FC, Bessie, EB, and Bertha Ball. So, the two Ball brothers were involved in the initial surface of the college. The Ball family was now in possession of the Administration Building and the real-estate. The Ball family gives the college to the state, which will give the college tax support. Because the other state schools did not want competition from the creation of a new school, James P. Goodrich came up with the idea that Ball State should begin as a branch campus of Indiana State University. FC wanted a school to develop here because he wanted to build equity. He thought that students deserved a school in the eastern part of the state. 1923 – Burkhart building was built (this held the science classes) 1924 – Ball family provides the money to build Ball gym. Physical education brings publicity and visibility to the college through athletics. 1926 – North Quad was built (the entire college could meet in totality in the North Quad) 1929 – Burris, a K-12 school, was built. Ball Hospital was also built (Ball State Heating Plant was going to heat the hospital, which is why they built Ball Hospital in that location) 1935 and 1936 – The Arts Building was built Beneficence – the people of Muncie donated money to the sculpture in honor of the Ball Brothers generosity State established schools include IU and Purdue. Normal schools were where future teachers could get their license to teach.
