Otterbein University and the Underground Railroad

October 24th @ 7pm

Library Second Floor

How did an uneducated former indentured servant become a Bishop of the United Brethren Church?  And why would he found a university that admitted women and African Americans on par with the white male students?  And how did he dare flaunt federal law by participating in the Underground Railroad?  Hear the fascinating story from Pam Allen of one of Otterbein University's founders--Bishop William Hanby. Then hear from University Archivist Stephen Grinch as he discusses another Otterbein founder, Lewis Davis, and his connections to the Underground Railroad.
