Description: Dr. Marion E. Shea, second president of William Paterson University (then Paterson State College) and the first woman president of a New Jersey state teachers college speaking in an undated photograph. Under her leadership (1954-1966), the college went through a vigorous period of enrollment growth and facility expansion, including construction of a library, gymnasium, dining hall, and the music facility that bears her name, the Shea Center for Performing Arts.
