Dr. Tanger served a school principal and superintendent in districts throughout Pennsylvania after his graduation from Millersville in 1898 and before his appointment as president of the state college in 1929. He presided over heroic attempts to save this and other schools from being closed during the Great Depression and the early years of World War II. He retired in 1943 but continued to be active in the community.
Educator and historian Lee Graver wrote the history of Millersville Normal School and Millersville State Teachers College as a requirement for a doctorate in education from Rutgers University in 1953. His dissertation was published two years later by Nazareth Publishing Company in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the college.
