James S. Constantine (born July 2, 1900 in York, Pennsylvania; died November 23, 1989 in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania) was the assistant director of the Virginia Glee Club during the 1939-1940 and 1940-1941 seasons; he had served as the accompanist for the group during the 1933-1934 and 1934-1935 seasons.
Prior to arriving at the University of Virginia, Constantine received the A.B. from Franklin and Marshall College in 1922, then studied music at Oberlin College, receiving his bachelors and masters there. After graduate study at Princeton University, Constantine became a classics professor at the University and served in this role from 1930 to 1970. The Constantine Library in Cocke Hall is named for him, as is the Constantine Lecture Series.
