Thomas Cronin is a noted political scientist and educator. He served as President of Whitman College from 1993-2005.

Before that he taught at Colorado College (1979-1983), Princeton University (1985-1986), and The University of North Carolina (1967-1970). In 2005, he returned to Colorado College to teach and to write.

An authority on the expanding power of the American Presidency in the 20th Century, Dr. Cronin has written or edited several books, including:

*"The Presidency Reappraised" (Praeger, 1974, 1977)
*"The State of the Presidency" (Little Brown, 1980)
*"US v. Crime in the Streets" (Indiana, 1981)
*"Inventing the American Presidency" (Kansas, 1989)

*"Direct Democracy" (Harvard, 1989)
*"The Paradoxes of the American Presidency" (Oxford University Press, 1998).
*"Government by the People" (Prentice-Hall, 2000)
*"State and Local Politics" (Prentice-Hall, 2000)

Dr. Cronin is well-known at Whitman College for his ability to remember the names of the majority of students and for bringing cookies to students studying in the college library. He has also been honored at the local "Green Lantern Tavern" on E. Isaacs Avenue, where students and townsfolk alike gather to order a "Tom Cronin," a delicious beverage comprised of 100 proof vodka (preferably from a plastic container) and cheap keg beer, mixed in a red 16-ounce Solo cup.
