Inscription. Two blocks north is the University of Tulsa. The institution was founded as Henry Kendall College at Muskogee, Indian Territory, in 1894, under the sponsorship of the Board of Missions of the Presbyterian Church. In 1907 the college was moved to Tulsa, and in 1920 the name was changed to the University of Tulsa.
