A Charlotte native, Kuykendall served as president of Davidson College for 13 years, beginning in 1984.

Kuykendall went on to study at Union Theological Seminary, earning a bachelor's degree in divinity, and at Yale Divinity School, earning a master's degree in Sacred Theology. At Princeton University, he received both a master's degree and doctorate in American religion.
Kuykendall began his teaching career at Auburn University, where he was associate professor and, later, head of the religion department. It was from there that he took up the post as president of Davidson. After leaving the presidency, Kuykendall served the college for another six years as professor before moving on to Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary as interim president.
Kuykendall has written two books: "Presbyterians: Their History and Beliefs," which he co-authored with Walter L. Lingle, and "Southern Enterprise: The Work of National Evangelical Societies in the Antebellum South." He is also the author of numerous articles and reviews.
The lecture is free and begins at 6:30 p.m. Dinner is served at 5:30 p.m. for a fee of $8.
