Photo Gallery - Oberlin College in the 1940s and 1950s
William E. and Eleanor "Bumpy" Stevenson

The Stevensons spent the years 1942-1945 in the North African and Italian war theaters,
as the respective heads of the American Red Cross.


In 1946, William E. Stevenson became the eighth president of Oberlin College.
A lawyer by trade, he was the first president without an academic background.
The Stevensons are seated with a number of Oberlin students on the back porch of the president's house.
