We Are… The Founder’s Circle

Holderby purchased land in 1821 upon which much of Marshall University now stands. He was a prosperous farmer and business man, who supported Marshall throughout his life. The Trustees purchased one and a quarter acres of land at Maple Grove from him for $40, the deed calling for the land to be “used for the express purpose of an Academy and no other use.”
