The General Faculty was organized at the time of the academic reorganization of the School in 1910. A definition published in the Bulletin of Washington University, Twenty-first Annual Catalogue of the Medical School, July, 1910, p. 7, reads as follows:
The General Faculty is composed of the Executive Faculty and such other members of the teaching staff as are designated by the Corporation of the University and will meet at the call of the Chancellor or the Dean to consider appropriate matters.
The Chancellor called the early meetings. The first meetings minutes, September 29, 1910 are in the Executive Faculty minutes. Schedules, curriculum, teaching methods, and memorial minutes for faculty were subjects of early meetings. According to the Thirty-seventh Annual Catalogue of the Medical School, March 1, 1926, p. 41, the General Faculty was amended to be composed of all the officers of administration and instruction above and including the rank of Associate. The 1929 catalogue amended the lowest academic rank to that of Assistant Professor.
