WLC was founded in 1923 as the College of Advanced Traffic and Transportation and the Academy of Advanced Traffic and Transportation. The College had campuses in Illinois, Colorado, and Missouri, and the Academy had campuses in Pennsylvania and New York. The founding names sounds a little odd to us today, but at the time motor vehicles and roads were a major change to daily life, much in the same way in 90 years the terms telecommunications or internet may seem a strange focus as they will just be assumed parts of daily life. The college prospered and provided first professional degrees preparing students to pass the federal ICC BAR Exam to be able to practice interstate commerce law. The name was changed to Institute of Logistical Management in 1987 and William Loveland College in 2014.
