Durham, North Carolina is home to the prestigious, private research institute, Duke University. Quakers and Methodists first founded Duke in 1838, and originally named it Trinity College, until 1924 when tobacco and electric power industrialist James Buchanan Duke established The Duke Endowment. This Endowment is a private establishment designed to serve as the key supporter for North Carolina and South Carolina's higher education, health care, children's welfare, and spiritual life programs.

Duke now stands as one of the top-funded, most recognized research based institutes in the nation. In fiscal year 2010, Duke University's research expenditures exceeded an astonishing $983 million, bringing Duke in as the 5th largest research universities in the United States, and the 2nd largest private university.
