Middlebury College is a private liberal arts college located in Middlebury, Vermont. When Middlebury was founded in November 1, 1800 as an outgrowth of Addison County Grammar School through the efforts of persons such as Seth Storrs and Gamaliel Painter, it was all-male liberal arts college. Although it was progressive in permitting the admission of African Americans, with its first graduate in 1823, it took until 1883 for the college to begin accepting women.
