Creation Date



Rev. Lawrence T. Cole was not yet thirty when he accepted the position of warden at St. Stephen’s in 1899. He served as president from 1899 to 1903, and as trustee of the College from 1916 to 1928 and from 1933 to 1953. He introduced a modified elective program, and abolished the traditional “Preparatory Course,” for those students not yet prepared for the advanced Latin and Greek in the College’s curriculum. He left in 1903, but remained on good terms with St. Stephen’s, returning years later to serve as trustee. He was a very dedicated trustee, attending 58 meetings during his first term on the board and chairing the administration committee and serving on the finance committee.
