Reverend Dr. Gilbert Morgan is generally numbered as the second chancellor of the University of Pittsburgh, then called the Western University of Pennsylvania, serving only one year from 1835 to 1836, although Morgan's official title at the time was "Principal", a holdover from the institution's academy days. Morgan was appointed by the University Board of Trustees in 1835 following recommendations from his associates at Union College. His short tenure as President was considered mostly unsuccessful and he resigned only a year later to accept a position in North Carolina at a school for young ladies.
