Rufus Columbus Burleson served as the second president of Baylor University from 1851 to 1861. He was again President of Baylor from 1886 to 1897.

Waco got it’s name from the Waco tribe  that had a village in the area. After Stephen F. Austin tried to destroy the village and failed in 1825, he made a treaty with the Waco.

About 1830 a group of Cherokee Indians moved into the area and drove the Waco tribe from their village.

In 1872, the Waco tribe joined other Wichita tribes on a reservation in Oklahoma. In 1902, the Waco received allotments of land and became official US citizens. Today, they are members of the federally recognized Wichita and Affiliated Tribes, headquartered in Anadarko, Oklahoma.
