Fifth Principal Dr. James McNaughton 1895-1899
UP UPC ASUP McNaughton, Dr. James
Football was emerging as a popular sport and exercise was the campus rage when Principal McNaughton came to head the Normal School of Arizona. Of the 158 students enrolled in 1896, 61, or 40%, were men, none of whom had played football. That didn't stop them from learning the game and participating in the sport. Physical education for women was soon added to the curriculum under Principal McNaughton, which brought the Normal School into the limelight.
