David Starr Jordan was appointed president in March 1891, and by June his first faculty -- 15 men of "youth and scholarly promise" -- had accepted appointments. Jordan sought professors who combined abilities for teaching and research, and he wrote, "Mr. Stanford wants me to get the best. He wants no ornamental or idle professors." (Excerpted from Stanford Facts 2013)
