Katharine Elizabeth McBride was the President of Bryn Mawr College from 1942 - 1970. Like President Park, Katharine E. McBride earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Bryn Mawr and brought to the presidency her experience as dean of Radcliffe College. She was a trained neurologist who taught both the education and psychology. McBride led the college through a significant period of expansion -- in the numbers of graduate and undergraduate students, in the number of scholarships and fellowships, and in the size and range of the curriculum. She oversaw the opening of the Child Study Institute and the creation of a lab nursery school. In the 1960s, she supervised new additions to the Park science Center and the construction of the Marriam Coffin Canady Library as well as Erdman and Haffner residential halls. A strong advocate for academic and individual freedom, McBride led the college in its repudiation of McCarthy era loyalty oaths and Vietnam era mandated reporting of student protests. Her love of research in aphasia and adult intelligence informed and enriched her administration, and from her research she internalized what she called "an inclination to ask about every event or kind of behavior, 'What can we learn from this?'"

When he was elected as the college’s fifth president, he had already risen to national prominence as special assistant to the President Kennedy on civil rights and served as president of the College at Old Westbury. Drawing upon Bryn Mawr’s legacy of producing scholars prepared to be engaged in the world, Wofford led successful efforts to recruit international students to the college and to provide financial support for their enrollment. Simultaneously, he strengthened and broadened opportunities for all its students to study abroad, and to pursue externships and internships. He also encouraged the Board of Trustees to establish a committee on investment responsibility. Wofford led Bryn Mawr during an era of intense political ferment as the nation, in the midst of economic discord, grappled with social issues such as women's rights and civil rights,.

She became the third president of Bryn Mawr College after having served as dean at both Simmons College and Radcliffe College. She led efforts to enrich the college’s curriculum, particularly in the areas of the fine arts, history of architecture and arts, and in archeology. Park presided over the college during difficult times for colleges, for the nation, and for the world. The Great Depression, the rise of fascism, and the beginning of World War II provided many challenges, but throughout, Park provided steady, optimistic leadership, joining with other United States institutions of higher learning to employ refugee scholars from European universities. Park initiated a program of cooperation between Bryn Mawr, Haverford, Swarthmore, and the University of Pennsylvania. At the opening of the academic year 1933-34, she said, "The college must educate for a changing world … about which we know only that it will be different from anything of which we have now had experience."
