Daniel Coit Gilman (1831-1908) was an American academic and educator. Gilman was key in founding the Sheffield Scientific School at Yale College. He would then serve as the second president of University of California, Berkeley, the first president of John Hopkins University, and as founding president of the Carnegie Institution. 

"Two factors in the history of American graduate education in the last quarter of the nineteenth century are indisputable. One is the tremendous growth of American graduate education in the period defined; the second factor is the constantly reiterated acknowledgment of the influence of Gilman in the promotion of graduate studies in America ... Gilman's first contribution to American graduate education was the Johns Hopkins Ph.D., which by definition contrasted the difference between undergraduate and graduate study ... By assembling the core of strong graduate faculty (with supplemental nonresident lecturers to boot), Gilman solved the problem of a new university and the problem of student migration as well. In Baltimore, the Johns Hopkins graduate student found talent enough to bring research projects to completion while Gilman's support of scholarly journals ensured that worthwhile results were disseminated" (ANB 9, pp 56-59).
