BeschreibungThe University of Harderwijk (1648 1811), also named the Guelders Academy (Latin: Academia Gelro-Zutphanica), was located in the town of Harderwijk, in the Republic of the United Provinces (now: the Netherlands). It was founded by the province of Guelders (Gelre).Some well-known graduates of the University of Harderwijk are artist Romeyn de Hooghe,explorer Jacob Roggeveen (1690), physician Herman Boerhaave (1693), Swedish scientist Carolus Linnaeus (1735), statesman Herman Willem Daendels (1783), poet A.C.W. Staring (1787).The university of Harderwijk didn't have a good reputation, because of its low standards. Nevertheless, it attracted many students with its low fees. Many students went to Harderwijk to graduate. In Samuel Johnson's Life of Herman Boerhaave, it says: "He went to Hardewich, in order to take the degree of doctor in physick, which he obtained in July, 1693, having performed a publick disputation, "de utilitate explorandorum excrementorum in ægris, ut signorum."
