Order:  Acting, after Thomas Hunter

Dates: May 1906 - January 1908

A graduate of Harvard and “senior professor” of mathematics and physics, Dr. Gillet was connected with the Normal College throughout its entire history, a span of almost forty years.  Although he himself was planning to retire – he was sixty-eight when he accepted the acting presidency – he agreed to serve until the “executive committee” could agree on a replacement for President Hunter.  Dr. Gillet died in office, after an operation for appendicitis.
