Biographical/Historical note

The College of Sciences and Arts was established in June of 1917 during President E.O. Holland's reorganization of academic departments within the State College of Washington. IN 1948, the position of Dean of that College was discontinued, and four Associate Deans (Physical Sciences, Biological Sciences, Humanities, Social Sciences) were created in its place. In 1953, the position of Dean was recreated, and two Associate Dean (Physical Sciences, Humanities) positions were retained. In 1965/1966, the College was unofficially split into two (College of Science, College of Liberal Arts), a split not made official until 1995.

In October, 1955, Morris Samuel Knebelman, Chair of the Department of Mathematics, was appointed as acting Associate Dean (Physical Sciences) of the College of Science and Arts, a position made permanent in July of 1956. Knebelman retired from Washington State University in 1961.
