Robert Morris University bears the name of an outstanding American of the Revolutionary War era who has been called the “Financier of the Revolution.” Beginning as a clerk, Robert Morris became a successful merchant and banker — the first financier in American history. His time, money, and personal credit aided the movement for American independence and helped provide the financial assistance needed by our patriot forefathers during the Colonial struggle for freedom. As a representative of the colony and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Robert Morris signed the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and the Articles of Confederation.
