Hail to the Chief! Presidents of St. Cloud State University, 1869-2010

An easy guide to the men and women who have served St. Cloud State over the past 140 years.

Over its almost 140 year existence, many have served St. Cloud State as its president. These have included alumni, ministers, educators, and women. Those on campus probably are familiar with many of the names, but not with the people behind the name.

Created by University Archives with material held at Archives, this gallery is a simple introduction to past board-appointed St. Cloud State presidents, celebrating each in a small way.
