In 1899 Randolph Clark accepted the offer of the residents of Lancaster to build a plant to support him in the establishment of a college. With Clark as president and his son-in-law, Robert F. Holloway, as business manager and professor of mathematics, the school was operated from 1899 to 1902. Elzy Dee Jennings was one of the graduates. The curriculum included science, music, art, and elocution.
