When Dr. DeGioia took office, was he, at 44, Georgetown's youngest president?

No.  After some time spent with reference books and a calculator, I believe that our youngest president was our third, William Louis DuBourg, S.S., who was appointed in 1796 at the age of 30. It is also DuBourg whom we have to thank for establishing the University Library with a gift of 100 volumes from his private library. Of our 47 presidents to date, 22 have been 44 or younger when they assumed office.
