Manchester University Stories

Founded in 1889, Manchester University is a private college of about 1,300 students in North Manchester, Indiana with our College of Pharmacy at a Fort Wayne, IN campus. We are devoted to respecting the infinite worth of every individual & graduating persons of ability & conviction. These are our stories, photos, and other information related to being a Spartan.

Schwalm.  An alumnus of Manchester College, Vernon received his BA degree from Manchester in 1913.  He went on to study at the University of Chicago.  Officiating at the inauguration is outgoing president, Otho Winger, who served Manchester from 1907-1941 as instructor (Philosophy, History, English), Vice-President (1910-1911) and President  (1911-1941).  Winger was instrumental in Schwalm’s development as a student and helped shape his career.
