Information from DePauw Through the Years, volume 1: The Indiana Female College was organized in 1850 in Indianapolis. Its peak enrollment occurred in 1866 with 100 students in its four college classes and 148 in its preparatory and primary classes. Many of the degrees earned were "Mistress of Liberal Arts" and "Mistress of English Literature." The school had ties with Asbury, as most of its stockholders gave the schools stock to Asbury, and when the school sold its property in 1868, it began negotiations with Asbury to consolidate.
