In 1933, Bennette Eugene Geer was nominated for President. Geer received the A.B. degree in 1896 and then taught at Furman. He became a professor of English and then the dean of Faculty in 1907. Geer resigned from teaching and was president of Judson Mills prior to his short tenure as Furman president.
