The Finding the Founders research group came together to learn more about Knox College’s status as an abolitionist institution and the contexts of its founding. With open access to the Knox College archives, we spent six weeks researching our own questions about how the Knox Founders’ abolitionism clashed with their anti-Indigenous and white supremacist beliefs. Manifesting Knox functions as our digital museum not only in order to display the results of our research but also to educate members of the Knox community who may be unfamiliar with Knox’s lesser-known history. This culmination of our research deals with themes of religion, abolition, settler colonialism, prejudice and racial hierarchies, education, white supremacy and white saviorism, institutional organization, and exploitation.
