Dean and Executive Vice Chancellor Records

The Vice Chancellor for Medical Affairs and Dean is the chief administrative officer of the School of Medicine. This record subgroup comprises mainly those chief administrative functions of the office that began in 1899 - with the merger of St. Louis Medical College and Missouri Medical College under the aegis of the University - and that continue to this day. During the first two-thirds of the twentieth century, the deanship was a part-time responsibility. The first Assistant Dean was appointed in 1938. Beginning with M. Kenton King’s time of service (1964-1989), the Dean has been a full-time administrator. In 1989, under William A. Peck, the positions of Vice Chancellor and Dean were merged. Since 1993, the position has been styled “Executive Vice Chancellor and Dean.” Presently the Dean’s Office includes several subdivisions under the supervision of Associate Deans, Assistant Deans and Directors with employees numbering in the hundreds. 87 linear feet.
