During the tumultuous years of the 1780s, Ira Allen was not only active as land developer, surveyor, treasurer of the struggling "republic" of Vermont, and officer in the Vermont militia. He also struggled to convince the Vermont legislature to establish a university. In this presentation, we look at the events leading to the creation of the University of Vermont.
