Abstract

This essay is an examination of the early faculty of the University of Virginia, and a delineation and an analysis of faculty concerns during the seventh through the sixteenth sessions of the University based on subjects recorded in the minutes of each faculty meeting between September 1830, and July 1840. The study is centered around the life and career of John A. G. Davis, Professor of Law during the decade of the 1830's, because in his background, beliefs, and devotion to scholarship Davis epitomized Jefferson's conception of the University of Virginia professor.
