Quant a miJohn Witherspoon (15 February 1723 - 15 November 1794), a Scottish-American Presbyterian minister and president of the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University). The only clergyman and college president to sign the Declaration of Independence.

Born in Gifford, Scotland, Witherspoon was educated at the University of Edinburgh, taking a Masters of Arts degree in 1739. He was pastor at the Presbyterian churches of Beith (1745-1758) and Paisley (1758-1768), during which time he wrote several theological works.

In 1768, Witherspoon accepted the invitation to become the sixth president of the College of New Jersey, where he taught the senior moral philosophy course and instituted several key curricular reforms.

Witherspoon was an early supporter of the American struggle against Britain, joining a local committee of correspondence in 1774. He was elected a delegate to the Second Continental Congress, serving there from June 1776 until November 1782 in a prominent capacity.

Following the Revolution Witherspoon took on the responsibility of rebuilding the damaged campus, served two terms in the state legislature, and supported ratification of the Constitution. He died in 1794 and is buried in the Princeton Cemetery.
