Today's Presidential Spotlight: James MacAlister

Anthony J. Drexel and business partner George W. Childs selected Philadelphia public school superintendent James MacAlister (1840-1913) as the first president of their new Drexel Institute of Art, Science, and Industry.  MacAlister oversaw the institute from its dedication on Dec. 17, 1891 (though his term officially began on January 1, 1892), through June 5, 1913, establishing its administrative policies and hiring its first instructional staff.  ~ Shaun Kirkpatrick
