Excerpt: Morgan State University, formerly Centenary Biblical Institute (1867-1890), Morgan College (1890-1939) and Morgan State College (1939-1975), is located in residential Baltimore, Maryland, United States. Morgan is a historically black college and Maryland's designated public urban university. It is the largest HBCU in the state of Maryland. As Maryland's "public urban university", Morgan is committed to providing opportunity of higher education to all persons regardless of socio-economic status. Though it is a public institution, Morgan is not a part of the University System of Maryland; the school opted out of becoming a part of the system; it has its own governing Board of Regents.

In 1915 Andrew Carnegie gave the school a grant of $50,000 for a central academic building. The terms of the grant included the purchase of a new site for the College, payment of all outstanding obligations, and the construction of a building to be named after him. The College met the conditions and moved to its present site in northeast Baltimore in 1917. Then a controversy exploded: in 1918, the white community of Lauraville was incensed that the Ivy Mill property, where Morgan was to be built, had been sold to a "negro" college. It attempted to have the sale revoked by filing suit in the circuit court in Towson, which dismissed the suit. They then appealed the case to the state Court of Appeals. The appellate court upheld the lower court decision,
