...1879,  Henry Hurd bought lots 6&7 & buildings, bk 13 (across the street west of the Fayette House Hotel).
.....He would rent out businesses, operated classes upstairs, used apprentice learning where students worked in businesses and had to run a business model.
.....Remained head of UIU Commercial Dept and Hurd's Business College from 1867 to abt. 1899, 3yrs before death on Oct 2, 1902. 
.....Continued to take an active part in the finances, building program, & traveled extensively by rail advertising UIU.
.....His
dau. Persis became his assistant, than head of the Commerical Dept and finally a member of the UIU staff.

 

 ...1881Jul23Postville.IA,  UIU at Fayette, Prof. Hurd, of the Business College has visited, this summer, similar institutions in older States, and will incorporate into the course of next year, which opens Sept 7th, several new and important features.
...1881Sep07,  The new term at UIU opened.

...1882Jan, Fayette.Paper Ad: Upper Iowa University, Fayette.IA, Preparatory, Normal, Classical, Scientific, Commercial, address Rev. J.W. Bissell, Pres.
...1882Sep26Fayette.IA, College Column;  Yes, we have a very good looking set of students this term; and they are not only good-looking, but they are also an extremely decorous set.  Judging from their looks we think that Prof. Hurd might venture with perfect impunity to turn "Dan" into the College Campus again.  Nothing has occurred as yet to mar the peacefulness and tranquility of school routine; but, with a knowledge which experience always brings, the students are expectantly listening for the strains of that "old, old song that comes over them like a chill," as Prof. Hurd sings in those sweet and gentle tones for which he is remarkable, "o Starry Night for a ramble."  Look out, boys!

...1883Apr, Pres. Bissell has been in Sibley, preaching sermons, then to Rock Rapids.  He is spreading UIU all over NW Iowa.
...1883May15Fayette.IA,  At the annual meeting of the Fayette Memorial Society,  H.E. Hurd, elected to the Executive committee.
...1883May29Fayette.IA,  Neither absent nor tardy, Persis Hurd, Second Intermediate (student in the Fayette school house, Persis will go on to attended UIU, work with father in the Business College and become an UIU instructor), teacher Lizzie Sayles.
...1883, South Hall, housing for women was completed, cost $8k.

...1886, An Astronomy Observatory with telescope was completed.

...1887, North Hall (later called Science Hall) was completed with labs and recitation rooms, cost $8k.



...1887Nov05, Ad in Fayette.IA and other papers:  'Book-keeping, Short-hand, Type-writing taught in Business College at Fayette.  Instruction thorough and expenses low in the Business College at Fayette.  Go to Business College at Fayette.  Expenses including board $44 for 12 weeks.'
...1887Dec10, Fayette.IA:  The winter term of UIU is as full as the moon.   
......The
new Commercial Hall (North Hall) with light & evenly heated rooms are a drawing card.
......Note:  North Hall, was a residence for men, erected just north & a bit west of the main limestone Seminary building. 
......The first floor had accommodations for 75 table boarders. 
......The
second floor was occupied by the Hurd's Business College
......The third floor had rooms for 20 men.  Furnishings for North Hall were similar to those for South Hall.

...1887Dec10Fayette.IA, The winter term of UIU is as full as the moon.  The extra facilities offered by the addition of the new building are telling on the attendance at the start.  The new Commercial Hall (North Hall) with its extra advantages over the old one, is having its effect.  Light and evenly heated rooms are drawing cards every time.  Prof. Hurd wears a smile and a plug hat each a foot long, and we don't blame him.  If we had as cozy a private office as he has, to say nothing of the main business rooms, we would sit up nights to laugh for awhile anyhow.  The Business College is now ready for almost any emergency.

...1889, The UIU Gymnasium was completed.

 ...1889Nov08Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd lost a plug hat on the election.  He kicked a hole through it when he became satisfied with republican ticket was being swamped.  Note:  Prof. Hurd wore stovepipe hats.

...1890, The Chapel was completed with basement rooms for class work and an auditorium for 600, cost $7500.


 

...1890May30Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd has a new Thomas lawn mower.  You will doubtless now see a well kept lawn over in Canada when you go that road.. 
...The Hurd's lived on a small farmstead along the hillside north of the Fayette bridge, several hundred yards past Marvin's Mill, on the west side of what was known as the West Union Road or Hwy11, which became Hwy150.

....His wife's parents had a farm adjacent.  Maps near at the end of the page will show the Hurd/Brunson locations.
....The area north of the bridge was locally called 'Canada.'  Today the bridge is new & in a more easterly alignment from the old Hwy 11 or 150 route.  Since the 1999 flood, original structures of the Hurd/Bissell era are gone.

...1890Jun06Fayette.IA,  Major flooding.  It is not often this section of the country is visited by a thunder storm of twelve tedious hours durations, but one came about 4pm, Tues, and continued till that hour the following morning.  At time the storm was heavy and boisterous.  It was a night of electric display, loud thunder and vigorous rainfall.  The Volga was swollen to a rushing torrent, and its tributaries must have cleaned up many people's barn and door yards, judging by the drift that floated past town on Wed. morning.  Lightning left its mark on Dr. Baker's new residence, but nobody was hurt.   Prof. Hurd had a picnic releasing pigs from a pen in which they stood a chance of drowning.  We presume not many people were asleep between two and three a.m.  Wed. morning's freshet took out at least 500 car loads of sand and soil from the south bank of the Volga between the bridge and Washington St.  Probably 6k-10k cubic yards of sand disappeared  in two to three hours' time.  Still another tempest came on the evening of Wed. and fairly flooded the streets again.  It was mixed up with thunder, lightning, wind, rain and hail.  No additional damage was done by it that we have heard.  Some serious cuts have been made about Klock's dam and race which will take some time to repair.  A substantial wooden flume would be less expense in the long run than the race has already been to its various owners.

...1890Sep05Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd was distributing University circulars at Independence last week and Prof. Ruggles performed a like missionary task at Cresco Fair.
...1890, Under the influence of Pres. Bissell & Prof. Hurd, the UIU Board of Trustees set out to raise an endowment, which by 1895 reached $24k.

...1891...Prof. Henry Ebenezer Hurd, Page 597 - 1891 Portrait & Biographical Album of Fayette Co. Iowa
"PROF. HENRY EBENEZER HURD, Principal of the Business College and Professor of book-keeping and commercial law in the Upper Iowa University, is the senior professor in the above institution. He is a native of the Empire State, having been born in Herkimer County, June 25, 1843. He is of English and Scotch-Irish lineage, and has inherited the strong physical build of the former and the quick mental activity of the latter people. His grandfather, Ebenezer Hurd, emigrated from Connecticut to Herkimer County, N. Y., where the father of the Professor, Dr. A. E. Hurd, was born. The Doctor prepared himself for the medical profession first at Fairfield, N. Y., and later at Albany. In an early day he emigrated to Illinois, where he married Miss Persis Brown, a native of Massachusetts. Soon after his marriage, the Doctor returned with his young wife to his native State but in 1884 they again sought a home in Illinois, locating in Ogle County.  Prof. Hurd, who is the second of a family of seven children, six sons and a daughter, was but a year old at the time of the removal to Illinois. When seventeen years of age, we find him enrolled as a student at Wheaton College. On the 17th of May, 1864, Prof. Hurd joined the One Hundred Thirty-second Illinois Infantry, and followed the old flag until October 17, when he was honorably discharged. In December, 1864, he entered Eastman's Commercial College of Poughkeepsie, N. Y. In 1867, he came to this city and established Hurd's National Business College of the Upper Iowa University, at the head of which he has since stood. He has taken an active part in building up the University, and the finances of the institution have been under his charge. Since 1874 there have been built three large edifices.  On the 2d of February, 1871, Prof. Hurd was united in marriage with Miss Henrietta, daughter of Hon. H. S. Brunson, a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this work. The lady was born in LaFayette County, Wis., March 24, 1845, and by their union they have one child, a daughter, Persis J. The Professor and his wife are also rearing two interesting little girls, his brother's children. He is an earnest worker in the cause of temperance and when the prohibitory amendment was before the people of Iowa, labored untiringly for its adoption."

...1891Apr10Fayette.IA,  Arrangements have been perfected whereby Clark.St, in Fayette, is to be opened from its present western terminus through the grove to what is known as Lover's Lane.  It is to be 80ft wide and it is stipulated that there shall be left standing two lines of native shade trees each side of the street.  Barns are to be set back from the street and sidewalks put down its entire length west of Main.St.  Blocks and lots are being platted and staked out, and by midsummer a fine 'boulevard' will be opened and the town in the center of another building boom that no man can stop.  We are very much pleased to note the indications of future prosperous growth for the town.  We who have waited 34yrs for its coming, are in hopes to see an advance movement all long the line.  Prof. Hurd is entitled to much of the credit due to this last movement.

...1891Sep04Fayette.IA, Prof Hurd took in the Monticello fair yesterday (advertising UIU and handing out flyers), and we think he was about the only passenger from this station to occupy those six coaches.

...1891Nov20Fayette.IA, Professor Hurd, in behalf of the University, and Judge Hoyt, representing the UIU Board of Trustees, have decided in their own minds that we have published a libelous, slanderous and perhaps infamous article in this paper concerning students and teachers.  The way they reach this fine legal decision is by taking the last paragraph of a squib without the explanatory preface.  Hereafter we shall say the least possible concerning anything that is tender footed or has corns, and when hoodlums come around, whether from holy or unholy ground, and commence to raid out premises we shall open our doors and invite them in to despoil out furniture, and bet their pardon for being slow about it.  The facts are we have smothered and suppresses ten times more than we have published.  The general verdict is that we have been very considerate under all the circumstances.  In regard to the squib referred to, we don't think any sane person took it that we meant to carry the idea that the teachers were in the list of raiders or where 'thieves and  burglars.'  Such an idea is simply preposterous.

...1891Dec04Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd is ranging around this week advertising UIU.

...1892Jan15Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd has had a wavering time with la grippe, although he manages to keep about most of the time.

...1892Dec20Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd spent Xmas with his father at Stillman.Valley.IL.  The old gentleman is 84yrs, and failing of late.

...1892Dec20Fayette.IA, We have been acquainted with Prof Hurd, of the Business College of UIU ever since he came here, nearly 25yrs ago, and know that he was then a graduate of Eastman National Business College, of Poughkeepsie, NY.  We also know that he has graduated very many young men who have become successful in business.  The College is not an experimental affair but a permanency, and is not merely a theoretical school but is conducted on the actual business plan.  We do not hesitate to say that it is the best school in Northern Iowa in which to obtain a thorough business education.

 ...1893Jan13Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd registered seven new students in his department last week.

...1893Aug17Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd and daughter Persis went to Aurora last Sat. to advertise the UIU among the Harvest Homers (Fay.Co.IA picnic/gathering) there congregated.  We think the Professor will do the same act today among the assembled grangers at Lamont.

...1893Aug25Fayette.IA, Ms. Gertrude Hurd, of Stillman.Valley.IL, a niece of Prof. H.E. Hurd, and who attended UIU last year, has been a very sick young lady and latter part of vacation, at here IL home.  A report gained credence here last Mon, that she had died, but Prof. Hurd had no such news.  However he telegraphed to Stillman.Valley in regard to the matter and received a dispatch just in time to catch the train, that she was alive but worse.  He and his dau. Persis went on the down passenger.

...1893Sep22Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd has unloaded another installment of commercial book covers at this office which means keeping our kettle hot for ten hours.
...1893Oct20Fayette.Ia, Prof Hurd left Fayette, for IL last Tues. evening.  He expects to be gone about a week, planning to take a look at the Fair on his way home.  Miss Persis Hurd has charge of the Commercial Dept. during the Professor's absence.

...1894Jan04Fayette.IA, UIU opened Tues. the 12th with a large attendance, many new students among the number.  The weather was cold, but the prospects fine.  Prof Hurd smiled all over his countenance.  One new student remarked "he had never been used to city life, especially in a city (Fayette) of this size."  We think the large number of new students is due to the fact that the pumpkins (corn) have all been husked.

...1894Mar22Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd was itinerating at Lawler and other northwestern hamlets last week.

...1894May17CharlesCity, Mr. E. Anderson will leave next Mon for Strawberry Pt. to visit his parents and on Wed go to Fayette to attend the wedding of his brother Rev. C. Alderson to Miss Persis Hurd, dau of Prof. Hurd of Fayette.

...1894May17Fayette.IA.  Yesterday, May 16, 1894, at 2pm, occurred the marriage of Rev. C.E. Alderson of Topeka.KS and miss Persis Hurd, of Fayette, only daughter (and only heir) of Mrs. and Prof. H.E. Hurd of University Faculty, Rev. Solon Brunson, uncle of the bride, performing the ceremony.  Mr. Alderson was in the UIU class of '92, Miss Hurd the class of '91.  The house was literally packed and it is a commodious one, with invited guests, many of them having known the bride all her life, as well as her mother when she was a young girl.  It does not seem so very long ago when we attended the marriage ceremony of the pride's parents.  All who were present yesterday seemed to take a personal interest in the occasion, and after the ceremony congratulations and good wishes were expressed with a fervor amounting to a benediction.  Refreshments followed, when the guests imperceptibly retired to make room for the reception of the University students, the University Band appearing in an uniform of white caps and coats, looking very nobby for the occasion.  it was on of the pleasantest occasions we have witnessed for many changing moons.  We understand the newly wedded left on the 5:18 train on route for the groom's home at Topeka.KS, were Rev. Alderson is stationed.

...1894Jun28Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd went to Kansas last week, probably to see how the newly married couple are prospering.

...1894Aug02Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd started out Monday sowing tracts and circulars pertaining to the school in a broadcast style over Northern Iowa.

...1894Aug13Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd came home Sat. night bringing a big grip sack and a tired looking face.  Rustling for business is said to be a weary warfare.

...1897Jul20.Fayette.IA,  Upper Iowa University (Excerpts from a recent Circular)...UIU is one of the oldest and best literary institution s in the state of Iowa.  It was founded in the 1850's and first opened its doors to admits students in Jan. 1857.  During the 41yrs of its existence it had educated nearly 10,000 young men and women and in the past five years had increased its college attendance over 400%, doubled its alumni, erected four building and added $50,000 to its endowment.  It has over 400 students annually and now ranks fourth among the colleges of Iowa as to the number of students in its College Department.  There are five buildings used for school purposes, and the institution is manned by a strong and able faculty educated in the best schools in the land.  Each teacher is a specialist in their line and has supplemented a long course of training by several years of teaching in his chosen field.
    The Material equipment of the school is excellent.  It has a library of 5,000 volumes, a good gymnasium under the control of the Christian Associations, a fine 5inch refracting telescope made by the celebrated firm of Alvin Clark and Sons, a good  museum which has been recently moved to new quarters in Science Hall and enlarged by a generous give from the National Museum at Washington, well equipped Biological, Chemical and Physical Laboratories and first class facilities in every way.
    The Academy (High School level) offers first class instruction in the Common Branches, Languages, Mathematics, Science, English, History, etc., and furnishes the best of preparation for college.  Three courses (tracts) are offered.  Students who do not desire to pursue one of the regular courses may take such work as is best suited to their needs.
    The College offers courses of advanced instruction equal to any college in the country in Greek, Latin, German, French, Mathematics, History, Political Science, Literature, Pedagogy, Ethics, Botany, Zoology, Physiology, Histology, Embryology, Geology, Physics, Chemistry, and other subjects taught in the best colleges.  It offers three courses (majors) of instructions, Classical, Scientific and Latin Scientific.  All subjects in the Sciences are pursued by the laboratory method.
    The Normal Department offers thorough courses of instruction in Common Branches, Drawing, Physiology, Physics, Political Economy, Methods of Teaching and other higher branches.  Beginning classes are organized in the common branches each term.  A regular course of four years offered which leads to a diploma.  This department gives a most thorough preparation for teaching.
   
 The Commercial School at UIU is the pioneer business college of Northern Iowa.  Organized by Professor Henry Hurd In 1867, it has continued year after year to send young men out into successful business pursuits all over Iowa and many adjoining states.  Instruction in this department is mainly individual.  By this method, no student is held back but each is allowed to push on and master the subject as fast as his time and talents will permit and not student is advanced so rapidly that he cannot fully grasp and master the subject.  Bookkeeping and Commercial Law, Penmanship, business Correspondence, Legal Forms, Shorthand and Typewriting are taught in the most thorough manner.  Actual Business is a leading feature.  Write Professor Hurd for a special circular.

...1897Sep09Fayette.IA,  Dr. Bissell (UIU Pres) returned from Europe.

...1897Dec09Fayette.IA, Prof. Hurd was taken ill in the Business College room Monday, during the registration of students, and was obliged to quite work.  It brought about by overwork.  He was out again the next morning however.

...1898Oct27Fayette.IA, Prof Hurd and wife are visiting with the Warners, in Kansas City, and are expected home the last of this week.

...1898Nov24Fayette.IA, Hurd's Business College has its annual book-cover job in the form for a 1400 run with forty stop-overs.  The changes will make nearly an all day's job.   The Oelwein Journal, Walter C. Hammer, proprietor, reached our dissecting table Monday.  It is a six-column quarto and well  "executed."  It is the sixteenth weekly newspaper for Fayette county, yet Eldorado, Auburn, St. Lucas, Alpha, Growler's Gulch', Donnan, Randalia, Corn Hill, Albany, Lima, and Wadena are yet unrepresented by a newspaper, and Brainard, we omitted that.

...1898Dec02Fayette.IA, Upper Iowa University is one of the pioneer institutions of Iowa, founded in 1857 and has educated ten thousand, and the alumni roll has reached over three hundred.  The courses are fully abreast of those of the best American schools, and a nobler band of students than is now gathered in its halls never came together.  In these times many institutions find themselves in financial trouble on account of the income being insufficient to meet the current expenses.  The UIU is not an exception.  Recently the Bd. of Bishops of the M.E. Church, at the urgent request of the college presidents has made an appeal for a 20th Century Thank Offering of ten million dollars to the school of the church.  The UIU should have fifty thousand dollars added to its endowment at once.   Then the material equipments could be increased, the Faculty enlarged and the way paved for a larger endowment in the future.  Many people should remember the University in their wills or placing present funds in the hands of the Borad of custodians for investment, the interest paid to them during their lifetime and the principal revert to the University at their death.  The UIU Custodians-- Ex. Gov. Larrabee, Hon. W.E. Fuller, John Jamison, Judge W.A. Hoyt and Prof H.E. Hurd--would see that the funds were well invested and pay over to them an annual or semi-annual interest during their lifetime.  By a united effort on the part of the friends of the school it can be well endowed.

(In the Westfield village area as Fayette had not been platted yet).  In 1884, at the age of 70, he took up active ministry work for a year at the Albany.IA church.  During his latter years he lived quietly at his home across the river (in Fayette, the 2nd house north of the bridge, on the west side of the road; after 1999 the area is devoid of structures), and looked after the small farm connected to it.  On Sunday, May 15, 1904, five days after his 90th birthday he preached a sermon in the M.E.
