Biographical Note

Frederick Augustus Porter Barnard joined the faculty of the University of Alabama in 1838 in the Departments of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy. He remained in Alabama until 1854, when he accepted a position as a Professor of Mathematics, Astronomy, and Civil Engineering at the University of Mississippi. Two years later, he became President of the University of Mississippi. Shortly after the Civil War erupted, Barnard (and others) resigned their positions and the university closed for four years. Barnard assumed the presidency of Columbia University in New York in 1864 and remained there until his death in 1889.
