On April 27, 1865, New York State Governor Reuben E. Fenton, in his chambers in the old State Capitol in Albany, signed the bill that constitutes the charter of Cornell University. The ideals of the founders, Ezra Cornell and Andrew Dickson White, reflected in this Charter, were remarkable in their day and constituted a truly radical educational experiment for the 1860s. This exhibit, part of Cornell's celebration of the Sesquicentennial, will provide a lively tour through Cornell's inspiring history through original documents, photographs, and artifacts.
