COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING R, .ICHARD G. TYLER, dean of the College of Engineering, was born October 16, 1885, In Georgetown, Texas. He canne to the University of Washington from the position of professor of sanitary engineering at the Massachusetts Insti- tute of Technology, Cambridge. He has also been affiliated with the University of Texas, dean of engineering and acting president for a short time of the Oklahoma Agriculture and Mechan- ical College. Dean Tyler Is a member of the American Society for Civil Engineers, the Acacia fraternity and Tau Beta PI and Sigma Tau engineering honorarles, as well as holding the position of Major of Engineers, Officers ' Reserve Corps. He is the author of various articles on engineering and has edited a number of engineering textbooks. In addition to his academic work, Dean Tyler has had a number of years of practical experience in munic- ipal and sanitary engineering. The college of engineering may be divided into the divisions of aeronautical, chemical, civil, commercial, electrical, and mechanical engineering. Guggenheim hiall, the newly built aero- nautics hall, was completed last year at a cost of $338,000, $290,000 of which was contributed by the Daniel Guggenheim Fund for the promotion of aero- nautics. The Boeing wind-tunnel was the gift of William E. Boeing. Though a comparatively young department, the College of Engineering has rapidly grown to a place among the largest in the university. The exploita- tion of Alaska, the development of hydro electric power In the Northwest, the great Boeing airplane plant, the Columbia River irrigation project, and the growing Northwest pulp and paper industry have all proved a tremendous stimulant and opportunity for engineering activity in this section. It is interesting to note that the college shows an Increase of fifteen per cent in enrollment this year, principally in the upper classes. A campus Glider Club has been organized and is now well under way. 40

COLLEGE OF SCIENCE Henry LANDES, dean of the College of Science, has been honored recently by an ap- pointment to membership on the International Geological Congress. Dean Landes has been at the University of Washington since 1895, when he came here as professor of geology. Since then he has first served as acting president In the school year I9I4-I9I5 and then as dean of the Dean Landes College of Science since 1921. From 1901 to 1921 he was also state geologist of Washington. Dean Landes graduated from the Univer- sity of Indiana in 1892 with an A. B. degree. In 1893 he received his M. A. at Harvard Uni- versity, hie was born in Carroll, Indiana, on December 22, 1867. Th HE COLLEGE OF SCIENCE has been going through a period of unrest. This year, similar to 1929-30, there have been many changes in the college and its departments. Due to the unexpected death of Dean John Nathan Cobb of the College of Fisheries last year, that college has been incorporated into the College of Science. This drastic change v as made because it would have been a difficult task to find a man in the United States capable of heading a department of this kind, there being no other college or university with a department to train men in this line of fisheries. Another new and interesting addition to this college is the department of oceanography headed by Dr. Thomas G. Thompson. Dr. Thompson has spent much time in Europe and the East studying, in preparation for the establish- ment of this new section, which will be open only to graduate students. Or- ganized to correlate and coordinate all research dealing with the sea, there are only half a dozen other such departments. Although headquarters of oceanography will be on the campus, the course will include research at Friday Harbor. 39

A minimum of twenty-four hours in education will be required, which will include courses in educational sociology, general methods, educational psychology and practice teaching, designed to give a well-rounded preparation for actual work out In the teaching field. The School of Education was one of the most greatly changed under the curriculum revision made by the faculty curriculum com- mittee last fall. Showing great recent advancement in the School of Education Is the closer affiliation of the education courses with the Seattle public schools. The amount of practice teaching for students in the department has been increased by fifty per cent and plans have been made by which the affiliations will be increased even more. Close observation and records of graduated students are kept by the school.
