A native of Iowa who would later earn degrees at Harvard, serve as a bomber pilot over Europe during World War II, and teach at Swarthmore and Bryn Mawr, Dr. Cross came to Hunter from Columbia University, where he was chair of the History Department.  During his administration, the Institute (now School) of Health Sciences, the Department of Black & Puerto Rican Studies, and the SEEK program were launched, and the basic organization of the College into four divisions – sciences and mathematics, humanities and arts, social sciences and programs in education – was determined.
