Historical NoteReturn to Top

Frank Strong was a graduate of Yale University (Ph.D 1897), where he received the John Addison Porter Prize and was lecturer in United States history from 1897-1899.

From 1899 to 1902, he served as president of the University of Oregon. He worked to make the UO live up to his belief that a university should be a citizen of its state. Gaining approval from the regents to create departments with deans, he brought outstanding individuals to the faculty, devised a plan for accrediting high schools in the state and admitting their students to the university, and improved the library. In spite of disagreements with the regents over a teacher education program, which led to his resignation, he left the university in a better position to serve as an effective citizen of its state.
