Colorado Woman's College
The original concept was referred to as the Denver Ladies' College. The organization was erroneously incorporated on November 14, 1888 as the Woman's College Society (amended the following July to Colorado Woman's College Society). The cornerstone for the first building was laid on March 25, 1890 but financial difficulty followed, including the Panic of 1893, and the school finally opened in 1909 as Colorado Woman's College. Its name changed to Temple Buell College in 1966, and changed again to Colorado Women's College in 1973, then merged into the University of Denver in 1982. Name valid 1888-1966.
