James Huston Tucker

Record #:
The man who could be considered Dr. Leo Jenkins’ right-hand man during his years as chancellor was James Tucker, dean of students. Described as having “an iron hand inside a velvet glove,” Tucker served as a capable leader during integration in the 1960s and student unrest a decade later. During his years as dean, Tucker also witnessed the establishment of the nursing school and introduction of computers on campus.
