豪沃大學 (Howard University) 於18661120日成立了

18661120日,有10位華盛頓特區「第一國會社團」 (First Congressional Association) 的成員聚集在一場教會活動裡。那天晚上,他們決定建立一所負責訓練非裔美籍傳教士的神學院。在1867年早期,這些創立者進一步擴大他們的理念,決定增加文學與藝術學院,並擴大建立一所大學。為了紀念奧力佛‧豪沃 (Oliver O. Howard) ,這所學校將以他的名字來命名。豪沃是一位內戰英雄,同時也曾擔任或美國自由民局 (Freedman Bureau) 的局長,這個單位是美國政府在1865年所設立,主要目的是對那些獲得自由的黑人提供協助。豪沃也是華盛頓當地這類組織的創始人之一。


On November 20, 1866, 10 members of the First Congregational Society of Washington, D.C., gathered for a missionary meeting. That evening, they decided to establish a seminary for the training of African American preachers. By early 1867, the founders had broadened their mission to include a liberal arts college and university. They decided to name the university for Major General Oliver O. Howard, a Civil War hero and Commissioner of the Freedmen's Bureau, a U.S. government agency established in 1865 to aid freed blacks. Howard was also one of the early founders of the institution in Washington.
