Grand-Café De Admiral is named after one of the “founding fathers” of the Hanzehogeschool: Lieutenant-Admiral-Squire Jan Hendrik van Kinsbergen (1735-1819) was born in Doesburg. He studied mathematics and marine science in Groningen. As commander of the Russian fleet, he defeated the Turks and became a hero in the Netherlands by defeating the English at the Dogger Bank.
After his heroics, he used his ability to help the ailing Academy in Groningen, one of the forerunners of the Hanzehogeschool, through a donation of books, a sextant and money. After his death he leaves an annual bequest of 50 guilders.
