History / Biographical Note

Historical Note

The Dean of the Graduate Faculties was also known as the Dean of the Faculties of Political Science, Philosophy and Pure Science. The Annual Reports, published in October or November, summarized the previous academic year's highlights. In addition to enrollment figures, the Deans would address issues such as degree requirements, changes in programs, and the scope and reach of Columbia as a research university. Frederick J.E. Woodbridge served as Dean from 1912 to 1929; Howard Lee McBain from 1929 to 1936; and George Pegram from 1936 to 1949.
