Louis Hue Girardin was appointed professor to teach Modern Languages, Geography, and Civil History at William & Mary in 1803. The notice in The Virginia Argus (Richmond, 12 February 1803) read:
"Mr. L. H. Girardin is appointed, in this College, Teacher of the Modern Languages, and Lecturer in Geography and Civil History.
"The acknowledged respectability of Mr. Girardin, both on account of his extensive literary acquirements, and unexceptionable moral character, renders the opportunity, which is now presented, of being well instructed in those useful branches of knowledge, of much importance to the youth; and it is hoped that many will avail themselves of it. The appointment may also be considered as promising a valuable accession to those sources of improvement with the College previously afforded.
"By order of the President and Professors."
