Dates: 1933 - 1940

Eugene Colligan received his early education in the Brooklyn public schools and was graduated from Eastern District High School.  Unlike his immediate predecessors, he did not attend CCNY; he received his BS from Teachers College and his AM and PhD from Fordham.  Like them, however, he held positions as teacher, principal, and associate superintendent of schools in the City.  Two years after he was chosen as Hunter’s 4th president, Columbia University awarded him the University Medal for Excellence in recognition of his service to the cause of education.
