In 1895, there were 134 students at Gettysburg College, which was then called Pennsylvania College. Of these students, two of them went on to become president of the American Mathematical Society. In this article, we look at the lives of these two men, Arthur Coble and Luther Eisenhart, and their contributions to mathematics and higher education, as well as look at what mathematics was like at Gettysburg at the end of the nineteenth century.
