Established as the Meharry Medical Department of Central Tennessee College by the Freedmen's Aid Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Meharry's inception was part of the Society's continuing effort to educate freed slaves and to provide health care services for the poor and under-served. The first individual contributors to the school were the five Meharry brothers, led by Samuel Meharry. Their initial gift was matched by the Methodist Church and the department was formally opened on October 13, 1876. In 1900, Central Tennessee College changed its name to Walden University. In 1915, the State of Tennessee granted Meharry a new charter, affording the College separate corporate existence. Since that time, it has remained independent, later receiving its accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools)
