TRUTH !!
After several closures, under several names, on July 25, 1917, the Ball
brothers, local industrialists and founders of the Ball Corporation, bought
the Indiana Normal Institute from foreclosure.
The close relationship between the Balls and the school led to an unofficial
moniker for the college, with many students, faculty, and local politicians
casually referring to the school as "Ball State," a shorthand alternative to
its longer, official name. During the 1922 short session of the Indiana
legislature, the state renamed the school as Ball Teachers College. This was
in recognition to the Ball family's continuing beneficence to the
institution. During this act, the state also reorganized its relationship
with Terre Haute and established a separate local board of trustees for the
Muncie campus.
In 1961, Ball State became fully independent of Indiana State University
through the creation of the Ball State College Board of Trustees. The
official name of the school was also changed to Ball State College.
