Biographical/Historical note

Clarence William Daugette, was born on 14 October 1873, at Bell's Landing, Monroe County, Alabama, to Thomas William and Clara Janet (Rankin) Daugette. He was educated at the Monroeville Academy, and at Auburn, graduating in 1893 with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1893, and with an Master of Science degree in 1894. That same year, he began teaching science at the Normal School in Jacksonville, Alabama (later to become Jacksonville State University). Shortly thereafter, he met Annie Rowan Forney (daughter of John Horace and Septima Sexta Middleton Forney); they married on 22 December 1897. He continued teaching until 1899, when he became the president of the Normal School.

Even after becoming president of the Normal School, Daugette continued his own education, attending the University of Chicago in the summers of 1901 and 1903, and in 1916, he received an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Alabama. Daugette was president of Jacksonville State University for 43 years. He died on 9 August 1942.
