Hannah Goldberg Appointed Acting President

In 1991, when president Emerson left Wheaton to become a Mellon Foundation Fellow, Hannah Goldberg was appointed acting president by the board of trustees. As the provost of the College, Goldberg was well equipped to take on the various projects and initiatives started by her predecessors.

Goldberg’s term included the dedications of Haas Athletic Center, Gebbie Hall and the Old Town Hall Bookstore.

Goldberg served as acting president until 1992, when Dale Rogers Marshall was inaugurated as Wheaton’s sixth president.

In 1998, Goldberg was awarded an honorary degree.
