John Agar became editor of the 'Georgetown College Journal' in 1875 and was a founding member of the Georgetown College Boat Club. His contributions to Georgetown continued long after he ceased to be a student. Active in the Alumni Association, he urged, at the turn of the 20th century, the inclusion of lay alumni on the University’s Board of Directors – an idea finally implemented in 1967. He also conceived the idea for a Board of Regents, drafted its bylaws and, in 1914, became an inaugural member of that body.
