Encyclopedia > Cumberland University

This institution is unrelated, other than by similarity of name, to the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky.

Cumberland University is a private university in Lebanon, Tennessee founded in 1842. The school had a reputation for high-quality education in its early years, and its former law school, the Cumberland School of Law, at one time was reputed to have had more of its alumni elected to Congress than any other in the South. The school fell on hard times during the Great Depression, however, as was common with many smaller private colleges, and was slow to recover, being forced to sell the law school to what is now Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama in 1962 and to operate only as a junior college until the 1980s when university status could be restored. Ironically, Cumberland may well be best-known for being on the losing end of the most lopsided college football game in history, 222-0 to Georgia Tech. A more praiseworthy athletic effort was that of the 2004 baseball team, which won the World Series of the NAIA.
