The Cincinnati Professorship

Erich S. Uffelman

The Cincinnati Professorship recognizes the gift of the Society of the Cincinnati of Virginia to Washington Academy, a predecessor institution to Washington and Lee University. The Society, a group of former officers of the Continental Army, influenced by George Washington's gift to the Academy, voted in 1802 to turn over its assets to the school, a gift that helped the institution survive.
