Description
Record Series 54 contains administrative files of the deans of the UCLA School of Engineering and Applied Sciences from 1967 to 1981. Files include academic plans, faculty directories, and other materials from Chauncey Starr, C. Martin Duke, and Russell R. O'Neill.
Background
Founding dean Llewellyn M.K. Boelter (1898-1966) organized the College of Engineering on the Los Angeles campus beginning in 1944, and led the college until his retirement in the summer of 1965. The formation of the College grew out of the University's wartime training program in engineering science and management. Dean Boelter adopted a new concept in engineering education by establishing a single undergraduate curriculum, with an emphasis on the fundamentals common to all engineers.
