Fannin County, Texas

According to the Handbook of Texas, Savoy Male and Female College, established in 1876,  was one of the first coeducational academic institutions in North Texas.  A fire destroyed the buildings in 1890 and efforts to reopen the college were unsuccessful.  We have obtained and scanned the Catalogue for 1887-1888.  You can view the entire catalogue HERE.


The Catalogue lists the faculty as:

R. R. Halsell

E. H. Pritchett

E. B. Hinshaw

W. I. Hunt


It also contains a list of students in primary, preparatory and collegiate departments.  The students were from various towns in Texas and from the Indian Territory.  The total enrollment was 301.  The College had a library of over 400 volumes.
