PRESIDENTS, DEANS, AND BURSARS
Prior to 1913 the president did pretty much everything administrative
himself, although faculty frequently performed dean or student record-
keeping duties. For example, Charles R. Pomeroy was dean 1895–1899
and Orman C. Palmer was dean 1900–1903. The separate offices of the
dean and bursar developed after 1913 during Edward H. Todd’s presidency
as part of his rationalization of administration and “getting the house in
order.” Many of Puget Sound’s deans and bursars were long-tenured, as
were the presidents. These dedicated people are, with the presidents,
responsible for the success of the university.
