The University Land Company was organized on April 12 1881.  The Articles of Incorporation were drawn on May 7 1881.  The University opened for classes on September 20 1881.

Our Special-Collections Reference Librarian Mark Stumme located this information for you in three print histories of Drake, which we hold in our Reference Collection.

Thank you.
