Grand-Café De Admiraal is named after one of the founders of Hanze University: Lieutenant-Admiral Jan Hendrik van Kinsbergen (1735-1819), born in Doesburg. He studied mathematics and naval science in Groningen. As commander of the Russian fleet, he defeated the Turks. He became a hero in the Netherlands by defeating the English at the Dogger Bank.

After his heroic deeds, he used his fortune to help the ailing Academy in Groningen, one of the forerunners of the Hanzehogeschool, among others, by donating books, a sextant and money. After his death, he left an annual legacy of 50 guilders.
