Reverend Samuel Regester (1818-1881) was the tenth president of the Maryland Agricultural College, serving from 1869 to 1873. His religiosity and his decision to eliminate of much of the technical farm training led the trustees to request his resignation. While at the university, he also served as professor of moral science and religion. This collection contains an 1881 photograph of President Regester and an 1887 photograph of his wife, Frances Gray Regester. In addition, materials related to Regester's son, Samuel Regester, Jr. (Class of 1876) are available, including newspaper clippings and a class badge from his visit to campus for the 1937 homecoming celebration.
