Summary

The disciplinary background and length of service in the deanship of 1,496 deans were examined. The study was limited to 240 doctoral degree granting institutions and covered the period from 1872 through 1975. Institutions awarding exclusively professional and theological degrees were not included. Wide diversity was found, although the most prominent academic discipline from which graduate deans have been chosen during the past century has been Chemistry, followed by Education, English, History, Physics, Biology, Engineering, Economics, Psychology, and Mathematics. Chemistry's popularity among graduate deans has also provided a strong base for the physical sciences to emerge as the most prominent field of study among graduate deans over the past century. A surprising 60 percent of the approximately 1,500 deans of record have served five years or less in the deanship. This may be attributed to the number of individuals who are appointed in an acting capacity for a limited duration. Another explanation may lie in upward mobility of graduate deans who frequently have moved to positions involving higher levels of academic responsibility. The number of appointments to the deanship has varied from year to year, but has remained at 17-19 percent from 1961 to 1975. (LBH)
