Rev. Howard Malcom was elected president to succeed the young Rockwood Giddings. He recruited students from the length of the Mississippi Valley and established a modified classical curriculum. Malcom also completed the first permanent building on the campus, known today as Giddings Hall. He also raised funds to eliminate the deficit, and bought a library and scientific equipment. During his tenure, he encouraged the establishment of the Georgetown Female Academy and the organization of the college’s first literary societies.
