Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Varsity offeecially uises 1740 as its foondin date an haes syne 1899. The ideas an intellectual inspiration for the academic institution stem frae 1749, wi a pamphlet published bi Benjamin Franklin, (1705/06-1790). When Franklin's institution wis established, it inhabitit a schuilhoose biggit in 1740 for anither schuil, which niver came tae practical fruition. Penn archivist Mark Frazier Lloyd  notes: “In 1899, Penn’s Trustees adopted a resolution that established 1740 as the founding date, but good cases may be made for 1749, when Franklin first convened the Trustees, or 1751, when the first classes were taught at the affiliated secondary school for boys, Academy of Philadelphia, or 1755, when Penn obtained its collegiate charter to add a post-secondary institution, the College of Philadelphia." Princeton's library  presents anither, diplomatically phrased view.
