Dean J. Edward Hoffmeister
College qf Arts and Science
One of the most popular persons in the Univer-
sity is Edward Hoflimeister. As the competent
Dean ofthe College ol' Arts and Science, and an
eminent geologist and educator, Dr. Hoffmeister
commands the respect of everyone who knows him.
But the affection with which he is universally re-
garded is a result of his own warm, approachable
Dean Lester 0. Wilder
College for Men,
One of the most diflicult and delicate positions
in the University is that of Dean of the Men's
Campus. The holder of that post must face the
dual problems presented by the student body on
the one hand. and the administration of the campus
on the other. Lester O. Wiilder assumed the posi-
tion in 1943, and since then has done a remarkably
fine job. He has evidenced a sensitive understand-
ing of the desires and rights of the student body
and has been a loyal and good friend of every
Rochester man without sacrificing one of his high
ideals of education.
Dean Janet H. Clark
The city of Rochester has always been intimately
connected with the movement to increase oppor-
tunities for women in our society. This has been
reflected in the College for VVomen of the Univer-
sity of Rochester, which has steadily grown in
reputation, quality, and scope. janet H. Clark has
been part of this growth, both as an outstanding
teacher of bio-physics and as Dean of the College
for Wlomen since 1939. Her conscientious, effective
performance of her duties has won her the admira-
tion and love of all the Prince Street Campus.
