"As the head of the ABES, the Rev. Frederick T. Gates guided Rockefeller through the intricacies of university development at the University of Chicago and smaller colleges throughout the Midwest and the South, while the Rev. Henry L. Morehouse at the ABHMS persuaded Rockefeller to support denominational schools serving the needs of African Americans and Native Americans. "

The Founding of the University of Chicago

"It was absolutely crucial to John D. Rockefeller that a disinterested, national body of Baptists be in charge of the deliberations about where to create a new college. Had Henry Morehouse not created the Education Society and then personally appointed Frederick Gates as its strategic leader, it is no exaggeration to say that there would have been no second or new University of Chicago to begin with."
