Julian Alvin Carroll (J.A.C.) Chandler

Julian Alvin Carroll (J.A.C.) Chandler served as President of William & Mary from 1919-1934. Along with Robert Morton Hughes, Chandler was one of the driving forces behind the formation of the Norfolk Division. Faced with the threat of Tidewater area students enrolling at nearby Atlantic University, located in Virginia Beach, Dr. Chandler swiftly decided on the old Larchmont School off Hampton Boulevard as the site of the Norfolk Division. J.A.C. Chandler Memorial Hall, now Constant Hall, was named in his honor.
