  • James Davis Porter (7 de dezembro de 1828 – 18 de maio de 1912) foi um político americano, o 20º governador do estado do Tennessee, com mandato de 1875 até 1879. Foi nomeado Secretário de Estado adjunto dos Estados Unidos durante o primeiro mandato do presidente Grover Cleveland e Ministro para o Chile na segunda administração de Cleveland. Como membro da Câmara dos Representantes do Tennessee às vésperas da Guerra Civil, Porter introduziu as "resoluções de Porter", que estabeleciam que se houvesse guerra entre a União e os estados confederados o Tennessee ficaria ao lado dos conferados. Ele passou grande parte da guerra como chefe do General Benjamin F. Cheatham e acompanhou a ação em várias batalhas no Tennessee e da Geórgia. Porter passou seus últimos anos como chanceler da escola onde formou-se, a Universidade de Nashville e como Presidente do Colégio Peabody, que estabeleceu-se na Universidade de Nashville durante sua gestão de governador. Ele supervisionou a liquidação e a transferência de ativos da Universidade de Nashville para o fundo de educação Peabody, que permitiu ao Colégio Peabody fosse restabelecido próximo da Universidade de Vanderbilt, em 1909.
