An Episcopal Dictionary of the Church

Doane College

This school in Crete, Nebraska, had extremely tenuous Episcopal connections. It was founded in 1872. It was not endorsed by the Diocese of Nebraska until 1931, when Bishop Ernest Vincent Shayler (1868-1947) was elected to its board of trustees. It was related in this superficial way to the diocese for twenty years, until Mar. 15, 1951, when Bishop Howard Rasmus Brinker (1893-1965) resigned from the board.
