IT’S FOUNDER’S DAY at Ohio Northern University! In March 1866, a 28-year-old, recently discharged Union veteran, Henry Solomon Lehr, detrained at the Ada depot. Lehr had come to northwestern Ohio in search of a site for his projected university. Lehr approach the citizens of Ada for funds to purchase land for a campus and an academic building. In August 1871, the Northwestern Ohio Normal School commenced.
