The purpose of Captain Partridge in founding the " American
Literary, Scientific and Military Academy," and later the " Norwich
University,' ' was to establish an institution for the training, of a
Citizen-Soldiery and for preparing the cadets for all the active duties
of life. In the previous chapters the speeches and 'writings of
Captain Partridge have been quoted giving his ideas on education.
In the educational work of the old " Academy' ' and the Univer-
sity, the academic'^and the military work were given equal rank.
To know how well the cadets have succeeded, who have followed
Captain Partridge's plan of education, one has only to inspect the
Ipng lists of cadets who have been honorably engaged in the many
activities of life. In the various professions, as well as in the
q,rmy, many of the cadets have stood at the head.

Forty-six of the graduates and past cadets have served in the
ministry. Their service by denomination is as follows: Episco-
pal, 15; Universalist and Unitarian, 14; Methodist, 3; Congrega-
tional, 13 ; Baptist, 3 ; Catholic, 1 ; Adventist, 1 ; Unclassified, 3.
