William Rollin Shipman (1836-1908), a Universalist minister, served as dean of the School of Liberal Arts for seven years (1900-1907). He joined the Tufts College faculty in 1864 as Professor of Rhetoric, Logic, and English Literature. In 1865, Shipman was ordained in the Universalist faith. Although he occasionally preached, he never pastored his own church. Shipman was secretary of the Tufts faculty from 1869 to 1873, and dean of the School of Liberal Arts from 1900 until his retirement in 1907, at which time Shipman was made professor emeritus. He had been a charter member of Tufts' Delta Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. Shipman died January 15, 1908.
