Clergyman John Harvard Died
September 14, 1638

In the 18th and 19th centuries, the college diversified, turning toward intellectual independence. In 1879, its "sister" school, Radcliffe College, formed, making Harvard's resources available to women. In addition to its law and medical schools, Harvard established schools of business, dentistry, medicine, and arts and sciences, becoming a major modern university at the turn of the 20th century. Alumni in some of these fields include writers Henry David Thoreau, W.E.B. Du Bois, and T.S. Eliot; former member of Congress Patricia Schroeder and Vice President Al Gore.
