Kendall College was originally established in 1934 as the Evanston Collegiate Institute. The school's founders were two Swedish and Danish-Norwegian seminarians who were endorsed by the Scandinavian Conference of the Methodist Church. In 1950, the school was renamed in honor of Curtis P. Kendall, founder of the Washington National Insurance Company of Evanston, a major employer of the school's alumni. Recently, the school found a new home in Chicago at the former location of the Sara Lee Research and Development Building.
