Biographical/Historical Note

The office of the Dean of Faculties at the Georgia Institute of Technology was established on September 1, 1948. Part of President Van Leer's postwar reorganization and renaming of the Georgia School of Technology, this new position was charged with overseeing all the academic programs of the Institute, including administrative and executive responsibility over the Engineering College, the General College, the Graduate Division, the ROTC units, and the Cooperative Division.

Lloyd W. Chapin, the former registrar, was the first person to hold the position of Dean of Faculties. Paul Weber succeeded Chapin in the 1955-1956 academic year and continued in the position until 1965. Weber also served as Acting President from January 1956 to August 1957.

Under President Harrison's reorganization of the Tech administration in the fall of 1965, Vice Presidents for academic affairs, financial operations, development, planning, and special projects were created. The Vice President for Academic Affairs position basically represented a continuation of the Dean of Faculties duties; therefore, the position of Dean of Faculties came to an end at that time.


Scope and Content Note

The annual reports of the Dean of Faculties usually include an opening narrative by the Dean, which outlines valuable information such as the number and quality of faculty; their salaries, professional activities, and publications; those who resigned or retired, or who were newly hired, during the course of the year; enrollment figures; and other data. Current needs and concerns, as well as current successes in academics at Georgia Tech, are also usually covered in the opening narrative.

Each annual report also includes reports on each of the colleges and divisions under the Dean of Faculties' purview. These college and division reports offer specific information about individual schools and departments, including personnel changes, academic programs, number and quality of students, and departmental needs.

These annual reports provide an excellent supplement to the President's annual reports for this time period, particularly as they relate to the academic work of the Institute. Within the time period covered, there are no reports for 1962-1963 or 1963-1964.
