Jubilee Memorial of Shurtleff College, Vol. 3 free pdf Excerpt from Jubilee Memorial of Shurtleff College, Vol. 3: Upper Alton, Ill Shurtleff College had its origin in a "Theological and High School" known as Rock Spring Seminary, established in 1827, under the labors of Rev. John M. Peck, D.D., and through the help of contributions received from a few friends in New York and New England. In The Baptist Memorial for 1842, Vol. 1, page 205, Dr. Peck says: "In 1827 the Rock Spring Theological High School was opened. Rock Spring is a country situation, 18 miles East of St. Louis, and on the great stage road to Vincennes and Louisville. The Seminary commenced with 25 students of both sexes, which number was increased in a few weeks to 100. At that period no school for boarders, under Protestant direction, existed in Illinois or Missouri. In 1831 the school closed with the view of its removal to Upper Alton, as the commencement of a College. The Institution opened again in 1832, under the name of Alton Seminary." Dr. B. F. Edwards, now resident in Kirkwood, Mo.- the sole survivor of the Rock Spring Board, a member of the Alton Seminary Board, and chairman of the meeting in which this new organization (rendered necessary by the change of location) was effected, says: "Rock Spring Seminary was removed to Upper Alton and there continued as Alton Seminary, and it was definitely understood - because of a previous agreement to remove that this was to be done when the new location at Upper Alton was decided upon, and the new organization there was formed." This statement of facts occurring in the early history of this College, and which at last definitely fixed its present location, is confirmed by abundant materials found in the published works and letters of Dr. Peck still extant- in a memorial volume inscribed to Dr. Peck and prepared by Hon. John Reynolds, Ex-Governor of Illinois, and in the opinions of many other living witnesses whose testimony might be added to that already given. In pursuance of the plan of removal there was an early transfer of the movable property of Rock Spring Seminary to Alton Seminary, consisting, as we are told, of "some $300 or $400 worth of property," embracing, among other things, the library of the Rock Spring Seminary, most of which is still in the possession of the College.
