Creation: 1922

James H. Kirkland studied grammar and literature in Leipzig in the 1880s, part of a wave of Americans earning degrees abroad. He believed that study of bigger philosophical questions was important, not merely for career advancement, but for personal enjoyment. While Kirkland lived before Movember, the moustache fundraiser for men’s cancer, he appears to have stayed fond of the moustaches popular among men in the 1880s. James Kirkland served as Vanderbilt's second Chancellor from 1893 until 1937.
