Johns Hopkins University, the first true graduate school in the U.S., formally opened its doors with an address---and without the benefit of a prayer---by the evolutionist T. H. Huxley. A Presbyterian minister wrote, "It is bad enough to invite Huxley. It were better to have asked God to be present. It would have been absurd to ask them both."
