“The destruction of the Missouri MilitaryAcademy in Mexico, Missouri, by an early morning fire prompted Henry Harrison Culver to invite its superintendent, Colonel Alexander Frederick Fleet, to bring his faculty and students to Indiana. The now-famous telegram: “You have the boys and I have the buildings. Let’s get together,” brought Fleet, 72 cadets, and a faculty of five to the north shore of Lake Maxinkuckee. Fleet’s skills as a scholar melded with the founder’s financial wherewithal and ensured the school success both educationally and fiscally”
