Acting president from April to October 1965, and again from September 1966 to January 1967, Dr. Gambrell joined the faculty of Hunter in 1937 as an instructor of history; as a full professor, she chaired the department from 1948 to 1962 and served as dean of the faculties from 1961 to 1966.  During her brief presidency, she planned for the emergence of the Bronx campus as an independent college, acquired the Bellevue (now Hunter-Bellevue) School of Nursing and its residence hall, and saw the School of Social Work into its new building.
