Chatham University was chartered on December 11, 1869, under the name Pennsylvania Female College. The Reverend William Trimble Beatty, pastor of the Shadyside Presbyterian Church, led a group of Pittsburghers in providing women with an education comparable to that which men could receive at the time at "colleges of the first class."
