Biographical / Historical

The Board of Visitors was founded in 1956 to increase the number of friends Davidson College has outside the obvious circles of its alumni and current student families, to make firmer the college's relationships with existing friends, and to bring to the Davidson campus annually a distinguished group of persons whose advice and support can mean much to the College's continuing strength.
