In 1914, Philadelphia School Superintendent Martin Brumbaugh became the first and only Ph.D. to win election as the Governor of Pennsylvania. As governor, Brumbaugh oversaw a number of sweeping changes in the administration of public education. After his term ended in 1919, Brumbaugh returned to Juniata College and again served as president of the college, from 1924 until his death in 1930.
