The five principal signers, professors at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, seceded from that institution in 1826 to found a rival medical school, Rutgers Medical College, which soon became the Rutgers Medical Faculty of Geneva College. When this school failed to win legislative approval, they attempted unsuccessfully to establish another, to be called Manhattan College. Cf. W.F. Norwood, Medical Education in the United States Before the Civil War (1944) chapter 11.
The proposed medical school had no connection with the Roman Catholic institution founded in 1853 and named Manhattan College in 1863.
