The University of Virginia, at Charlottesville, founded and designed by Thomas Jefferson in 1816, blends modernity with the classic beauty of the Colonial period.

Edgar Allan Poe and Woodrow Wilson were students of this university and Edwin A. Alderman, educational statesman, was its late president.
