History:  

MORGAN Township, organized in May 1880, and its city in sections 15, 16, 21, and 22, platted August 14, 1878, incorporated as a village February 11, 1889, and separated from the township on April 16, 1891, were named in honor of Lewis Henry Morgan, the eminent soldier, explorer, and author, who has been called "the Father of American anthropology." He was born near Aurora, N.Y., November 21, 1818, and died in Rochester, N.Y., December 17, 1881. Among the numerous books of his authorship is a history of the American beaver and its works, for which in 1861 he traveled through Minnesota to the Red River settlements in Manitoba and in 1862 for this research he ascended the Missouri River to the Rocky Mountains.
