This Day in the History of the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The University’s Board of Trustees elected Reverend Dr. David Ker as the "Presiding Professor." The Board decided that "funds were not sufficient to induce a man of much experience and reputation for learning and executive ability to become its President, [so] they therefore determined to begin with a Presiding Professor." Educated at Trinity College in Dublin, Ker previously served as the pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Fayetteville and principal of its Classical School.
