"David Barrow Jr. served as chancellor of the University of Georgia from 1906 to 1925, a position roughly analogous to the modern presidency of that institution... David Crenshaw Barrow Jr. was born in 1852 in Oglethorpe County, where his father, David C. Barrow Sr., was a leading planter and a trustee of the university... Barrow was educated at the University of Georgia, receiving both a B.S. and a degree in engineering in 1874. After trying the law and geological surveying, he became in turn a popular professor of mathematics and engineering, a department head, dean under Chancellor Walter B. Hill, acting chancellor upon Hill's death (1905), and in 1906, chancellor. Building upon Hill's vision and plans (many of which he had helped formulate as dean), Barrow led the university through a period of great growth... Barrow died in 1929." - "David C.
