Administrative History

The College of Education began as the Church Teachers College, which then became the School of Education. In 1921, newly appointed President Harris created the College of Education from the School of Education. L. John Nuttall was named Dean of the College in 1922. While John Nuttall acted as Interim President during Harris' world tour, John C. Swensen acted as Dean of Education for the 1926-1927 school year. John Nuttall left the University in 1926, and Harris appointed Amos N. Merrill Acting Dean until 1939, when he was officially named Dean of the College and served until 1945. Asael Lambert was an Interim Dean from 1945-1946, and Reuben Law was appointed Dean from 1946-1954.
