Additional Information Joseph Thomas Kingsbury was born on November 4, 1853 in Weber County, Utah. He served as president of the University of Deseret, now known as the University of Utah, from 1892 to 1894. In 1894 he was replaced by James E. Talmage, but was once again appointed president in 1897. He held that position until he resigned because of a campus controversy in 1916. Kingsbury attended the University of Deseret from 1872 to 1875 and Cornell University from 1875 to 1877. Kingsbury received his doctorate in 1894 through non-resident study from Illinois Wesleyan University. Kingsbury joined the small faculty of the University of Deseret in 1878. (Until 1883, he was one of only three faculty members.) His teaching assignments included physics, chemistry, mineralogy, geology, geography and civil government. --wiki
