Middle Tennessee State University
Presidents' Portraits
Murfreesboro, Tennessee

Since so many of the President's portraits for this institution are either photographs or over-painting of photographs, this page lists them all rather than devoting a separate page to each one.  If anyone has paintings of any of these subjects, please contact us.  We would very much appreciate having them to add to the site.

The subjects are arranged in chronological order from first served to most recent.

All of these portraits are in the Walker Library at the MTSU campus in Murfreesboro.
