The post of Dean of Students
was formed by the Board of Re-
gents in 1921. This was the first
job of this kind in the country.
THE DUTY OF THE Dean of
Students is to be "friend, counse-

with general oversight of its wel-
fare and its activities."
As a result, the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs has become catch-
all for the entire Uniersity.
Even mail clerks who find them-
selves with letters they don't know
what to do with drop them off
at the office.
Dean's Office Handles Activities
As the office gathered more and
more jobs, it began nibbling rooms
away from the Registrar's Office
until it moved into its own office
in the new Administration Build-
ing two years ago.

post of Dean of Students has ac-

membership in the University Sen-

Residence Halls, and many more.
Before becoming Dean of Stu-
dents in 1947, Dean Walter had
