Having learned the value of education, self-improvement, and perseverance from his of Russian- Jewish immigrant parents, Marvin Wachman was always a good student. But his skill on the tennis court won him a university scholarship and social access (along with notable opponents such as Bobby Riggs). As a newly minted PhD, Wachman served in World War II as a combat platoon sergeant. He was drawn to teaching, first in the Army, then at Colgate University, by his desire for work of lasting value. He proved a man of vision and administrative ability, qualities that suited him to lead two great universities renowned for their commitment to extending educational opportunity. During the Civil Rights era, he served as the president of Lincoln University, the country's oldest historically Black college, and he later guided Temple University through fiscally troubled times.
