Historical note

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.
In 1968 the College of Engineering was renamed the School of Engineering, and was later renamed again in 2000 as the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, after a generous donation was given to the school by UCLA professor and alumnus, Henry Samueli and his wife, Susan.

Scope and Content

Record Series 54 contains materials of the deans of the UCLA School of Engineering and Applied Sciences spanning a fourteen-year period from 1967 to 1981. This time was one of important changes for the program which transitioned from the College of Engineering into the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences in 1969 and formed seven individual departments. Roughly one-third of the papers date from the transitional period 1969-1971 and relate to academic plans for the newly formed departments. In addition there are 1973 faculty directories for each of the departments. The remainder of the materials focus on Chairs and Deans' Retreats from 1978-1981, Faculty Conferences from 1967-68 and 1974, and Engineers Council for Professional Development from 1968-69 and 1974-75 as well as a Self-Review of Graduate programs from 1974. The School was under the leadership of two deans during this period; Chauncey Starr left the position in 1973 and was succeed by Russell R. O'Neill. C. Martin Duke served as acting Dean for Academic Year 1974-75.
This is an active Record Series; additional University records are expected to be added.
