1867-1868: Luther T. Woodward (interim)

Rev. Luther Woodward, a graduate of Wabash College in Indiana, was a newly-elected professor of mental and moral science when he was asked to serve as acting president after Wythe failed to win the Willamette Board’s vote for re-election. He served for a year’s time, afterwards returning to pastoral work; he remained a member of Willamette’s Board of Trustees until his death in 1876.
