George Henry Brimhall (December 9, 1852 – July 29, 1932) was President of Brigham Young University. After graduating from Brigham Young Academy, Brimhall served as principal of Spanish Fork schools and then as district superintendent of Utah County schools, finally returning to Brigham Young Academy. He became president of the school, now a university, in 1903.
Brimhall was born to George W. Brimhall and his wife the former Rachel Ann Meyer in Salt Lake City. When Brimhall was about one year old the family moved to Ogden and they later moved to Spanish Fork.
As a boy, Brimhall was taught to love learning by his mother, his first teacher. He studied under Wilson Dusenberry at the Provo Timpanogos Academy, where, as valedictorian, "for the first time I was applauded although my pants were patched." "My ruling passion has been to move men's minds", said Brimhall, and his administration was marked by an emphasis on teacher training.
