Biographical/Historical note

William S. Gaither was born in Indiana in 1932. He studied civil engineering at the Rose Polytechnic Institute, graduating in 1956. Before continuing with his graduate education he worked for the Meyer Corporation, the Dravo Corporation, and the Bechtel Corporation as an engineer. In 1964 he received a Ph.D from Princeton University concentrating his work on marine transportation and ocean engineering. He taught at Princeton University and the University of Florida.

In 1967 he started an ocean engineering program at the University of Delaware. In 1970 he was offered the position of Dean and Professor of the College of Marine Studies at Delaware where he was also the Sea Grant Program Director. This Program is an organization which honors colleges that have developed a curriculum for studying the oceans and human impact on them. During his career he frequently testified to Congress on environmental and oceanographic issues. In 1984 he left the University of Delaware for the position of President of Drexel where he created eleven new majors and increased alumni giving. Gaither’s Inauguration as President of Drexel was held on April 27, 1985. He also worked on programs to enhance minority student enrollment at Drexel. During his tenure at Drexel he was on the boards of the University City Science Center, the PenJerDel Council, and the West Philadelphia Partnership.

In April of 1987, a female staff member alleged that Gaither had made inappropriate sexual advances to her. She made a formal complaint, but withdrew it when he apologized. The Board of Trustees gave him a vote of no confidence during the summer of 1987 and he was forced to resign.
