Armour Institute of Technology
Illinois Institute of Technology was created in 1940 by the merger of Armour Institute of Technology and Lewis Institute. Located on the West Side of Chicago, Lewis Institute, established in 1895 by the estate of hardware merchant and investor Allen Cleveland Lewis, offered liberal arts as well as science and engineering courses for both men and women. At separate meetings held by their respective boards on October 26, 1939, the trustees of Armour and Lewis voted to merge the two colleges. A Cook County Circuit Court decision on Tuesday, April 23, 1940 solidified the merger.
