Robert W. Fuller (*1936) earned his Ph.D. in physics at Princeton University in 1961, and taught at Columbia University where he co-authored the book Mathematics of Classical and Quantum Physics. The mounting social unrest of the 1960s drew his attention to educational reform, and in 1970 he was appointed president of his alma mater Oberlin College at the age of 33, one of youngest college Presidents in US history. During his time at Oberlin, Fuller re-shaped the student body by tripling the enrollment of minorities at the college. Fuller also recruited and hired the first four African-American athletic coaches in a predominantly white American college or university, including Tommie Smith, the Gold Medalist sprinter from the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. Fuller was interviewed on campus by Howard Cosell and appeared on primetime television to talk about these changes.
