Collection Overview

Biography / History
Bowling Green Business University originated in 1884 as the Southern Normal School and Business College. In 1892 Henry Hardin Cherry and Thomas Crittenden Cherry took over its operations and renamed it the Bowling Green Business College and Literary Institute; the name changed again to Southern Normal School and Bowling Green Business College in 1894.
On January 7, 1907, the Southern Normal School became Western Kentucky State Normal School, a state-chartered institution. H. H. Cherry sold the business school to a private partnership of Joseph S. Dickey, J. Lewie Harman, and W. S. Ashby.
Under J. S. Dickey and three subsequent presidents, the Bowling Green Business University earned a national reputation for its training of commercial teachers. It became the first privately owned business school to achieve four-year college status and membership in the Association of Kentucky Colleges and Universities.
On June 1, 1963, Bowling Green Business University merged with Western Kentucky State College.
Scope and Content
