President Charles M. Knight, 1896-1897

Charles M. Knight, a professor of chemistry and physics, was the only layman to head the school in the 19th century. He was considered to be well suited for the presidency, but he preferred teaching and agreed to serve on only an interim basis. Knight provided “steady leadership” during his year as president, then was appointed as the first Dean of the Faculty and awarded an honorary doctorate.
