Pitzer was founded in 1963 as a women's college by Russell K. Pitzer (1878-1978), a California citrus magnate and philanthropist, and its first President was John W. Atherton. The College
became co-educational in 1970.
Chancellors at the College of William and Mary have included some very famous retired statesmen, including Margaret Thatcher (UK Prime Minister), Henry Kissinger (US Secretary of State), Warren E. Burger (US Chief Justice), and, currently, Sandra Day O'Connor (US Associate Justice).
