Known for[edit]

I appreciate Alderman's importance to UNC as its president for four years, but being the first ever president of UVA, for 27 years, was almost certainly an accomplishment of equal significance. During that time Alderman really transformed Mr. Jefferson's university into a modern school. I'd argue that the Known For text should be changed to "First President of the University of Virginia; President of University of North Carolina and Tulane University." Thoughts?
