Dr. David H. Kurtzman came to the University of Pittsburgh as its Vice Chancellor for Finance in July of 1965. He assumed his new duties at the height of a financial crisis at the University. Seven months later, the institution faced another crisis, the death of Acting Chancellor Stanton C. Crawford in 1966. Dr. Kurtzman was asked to serve as the Chancellor until the University named a permanent Chancellor. In his capacity as Acting Chancellor, Kurtzman guided the University through the transition to a state-related institution.
