(Philadelphia) -- Two midstate college presidents rank among the top 100 highest paid private college leaders in the country.

The Chronicle of Higher Education reports Dickinson College's William Durden was ranked 91st with a salary of $652,765 and Bucknell's John Bravman was 98th at 628,094.

Five other Pennsylvania presidents were in the top 100, including a former head of Franklin and Marshall College.

John Fry, who is now the president at Drexel, was 28th with a salary of just more than $1 million. 

The University of Pennsylvania's Amy Gutmann made $2.5 million in 2012, ranking her fourth in the nation.   

The Chronicle today released the results of its survey of the 500 private schools with the largest endowments.
