** Harvard famously has the Statue of Three Lies which reads: "John Harvard, Founder, 1638" (The statue is attributed to Harvard, but as there was no physical record of what he looked like it was instead based on a student, Sherman Hoar. Also, while Harvard certainly contributed heavily to the school with a large bequest and four hundred some odd books, it was actually founded three years beforehand, so if anything he's more like ''a'' founder than ''the'' founder).

** The founder of University College London, Jeremy Bentham, had his body ''mummified'' and donated to the school so they could save on the expense of a statue to commemorate him[[note]] The head is a waxwork as the mummification job left the original looking rather ghoulish and because [[WackyFratboyHijinks drunk students kept 'kidnapping' it]][[/note]]. There used to be a tradition of wheeling it into faculty meetings and making a note on the minutes that Bentham attended [[CaptainObvious but didn't vote on any motions]].
