Hugh S. Bird
Hugh S. Bird was a member of the group of faculty at the College of William and Mary known as the Seven Wise Men. Bird was hired in 1888, at the age of nineteen, to serve as the professor of pedagogics (or the study of being a teacher). When the curriculum was changed in 1898, he began to teach philosophy as well as pedagogics. He was the first of the Seven Wise Men to leave William and Mary, resigning in 1904.
