Dewitt C. "Bud" Baldwin served as president in 1983-84.
A Swarthmore graduate and convinced Friend, Baldwin previously was an associate dean at the School of Medical Sciences of the University of Nevada. He came to Earlham from a successful medical career, having held positions at the Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, the Harvard School of Public Health and the American Medical Association. Baldwin was considered very congenial and popular with students, but he remained at Earlham only a year. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education awarded him its 2009 Gienapp Award for distinguished lifetime achievement.
