Report Card Signed "R E Lee" as president of Washington College. One page, 8" x 10.5", February 8, 1868, [Lexington] Virginia. This document reports the grades of R.C. Morrison, a student at Washington College (now Washington and Lee University), with Morrison receiving "Distinguished" grades in several subjects.

Six months after surrendering at Appomattox Courthouse, Lee became president of Washington College in his beloved state of Virginia. His experience as superintendent of West Point prior to the Civil War helped him excel as an educational administrator at the college. During his five years there, he recruited northern and southern students and transformed the college into one of the nation's leading education centers. Soon after his death in October 1870, Lee's name was added to the name of the college. Toned with light foxing; fine. Accompanied by a full Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA.
