VincentJohnJOHN MARTIN VINCENT, A&S 1890 (PhD), an expert in European history, was a member of the Hopkins history faculty for 35 years. Dr. Vincent and his wife made 21 tours of Europe. The Vincents were noted in Baltimore for their popular dinner parties, where young Woodrow Wilson, A&S 1886 (PhD), was a frequent guest. It came as a great surprise to his former colleagues when Dr. Vincent’s will revealed his large bequest, the proceeds of careful investment over the years.
