Administrative History of the Dean of Faculties

The office of the Dean of Faculties is first referred to in the 1949 Blueprint, the Georgia Tech yearbook. The Dean of Faculties was responsible for the oversight of the academic programs on campus. Lloyd W. (Lloyd Walter) Chapin served as the first Dean; Paul M. Weber succeeded Chapin by 1956 and continued in the position for about a decade. After about 1967, the Engineering Division, the General College Division, the Engineering Experiment Station, and the Graduate Division were each headed by a Dean.
