Fifth Dean Of Engineering.Col ege
Will Be Heir To Venerable Tradition
Police aInvesigate Fire
DETROIT, Jan. 6.--UP1)-Origin of
an early morning rooming house fire
that cost two lives here was traced
tonight by investigators to a ;second-
floor room, and belief was expressed
that a carelessly discarded cigaret
started the blaze.
Silence in official quarters and ab-
stract speculations from "usually re-
liable sources" leaves as an unknown
quantity the identity of the fifth
dean of the engineering college and
successor to the late Dean Henry C.
A history of rapid expansion and
of personalities marks the rise of the
engineering college from an obscure
department 45 years ago to its present
standing as one of the outstanding
schools of its kind in the country.
Organized in 1895 as the Depart-
ment of Engineering under the dean-
ship of Charles Ezra Greene, it has
grown to its present size .and scope
chiefly under the leadership of its
past four deans, namely, Deans
Greene, Mortimer Cooley, Herbert C.
Sadler and Anderson.
The University was the fourth in-
stitution in the country to offer
courses in engineering, and with the
graduation of its first two students
in 1860, it became the sixth institution
to grant degrees in that field.
First vigorous proponent of the en-
gineer's cause here, University records
reveal, was Prof. DeVolson Wood,
appointed to an assistant professor-
ship in civil engineering in 1857. It
was under his direction that numer-
ous recommendations and innovations.
Prominent in the early history of
the department vgere Professor
Greene and his two associates, Prof.
Charles S .Denison and Prof. J. B.
Davis. Professor Greene, in recogni-
tion of his work, was elevated to the
position of the first dean of the col-
lege when it was set up as an inde-
pendent body in 1895 by the Board
Professor Cooley was appointed
to that position upon the death of
Dean Greene in 1903. A graduate of
Annapolis, Dean Cooley had previ-
ously been appointed as first pro-
fessor of the newly-organized depart-
ment of mechanical engineering.
Retiring in 1927 because of ill
health, Dean Cooley was succeeded
the following year by Professor Sad-
ler. Unable to carry the work and
responsibility of the deanship, Dean
Cooley continued to serve the Uni-
versity as professor .of naval archi-
tecture and marine engineering. Up-
on his retirement from that post last
October, the Board of Regents con-
ferred upon him the titles of dean
emeritus of the college of engineering
and professor emeritus of naval archi-
tecture and marine engineering.
Successor to Dean Sadler upon his
retirement in 1937 was Professor An-
derson, who at that time held a posi-
tion as chairman of the department
of mechanical engineering.
Widely known in both academic
and industrial phases of engineering,
Dean Anderson continued as head o
the college until his death Oct. 14.
He succumbed to heart attack while
listening to a broadcast of the Michi-
gan-Iowa football game.
