College History

History

Simpson College was founded in 1860 and was named and based on the beliefs of Methodist minister Matthew Simpson. Simpson is best known as the minister who spoke the last words at Abraham Lincoln's grave in Springfield, Illinois. His beliefs are passed on to the students and professors of Simpson. September 28, 2010 marked the 150th anniversary of Simpson's establishment as an educational institution, being the anniversary of the first day classes were held at the school. To celebrate the event, current students and alumni were invited to attend a picnic in the center of campus, out in front of Carver Science Hall. Following the picnic, a time capsule was buried containing pictures and other memorabilia submitted by students. The capsule will be uncovered in 2060, on Simpson's 200th anniversary.
