List of College of William & Mary alumni

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
The Wren Building, constructed between 1695 and 1700, is the oldest college building in the United States.[1]
Three of the first ten U.S. presidents attended the College of William & Mary.

The College of William & Mary, located in Williamsburg, Virginia, United States, was founded in 1693 by a royal charter issued by King William III and Queen Mary II. It is a public research university and has approximately 88,800 living alumni.[2][3]

Alumni of the College of William and Mary have played important roles in shaping the United States. Three of the country's first ten presidents were educated there; only Harvard University, which educated five, can claim more.[4] The school is also the alma mater of four United States Supreme Court justices (including its longest-serving chief justice, John Marshall). Because the school was one of the only colleges existing in the Colonies, many colonial era notables enrolled including four signers of the Declaration of Independence and the first president of the Continental Congress, Peyton Randolph.

This list of alumni includes those who graduated, transferred to another school, dropped out, or were fully educated at the college but never received an academic degree. This list uses the following notations:
