Dean E. McHenry: Founding Chancellor of the University of California, Santa Cruz, Volume I: Childhood and Teaching Career, 1910-1958


Dean E. McHenry was appointed chancellor of UCSC in 1961, more than four years before the campus opened its doors to the first class of 650 students. He served for 13 years before retiring in 1974, but remained an active member of the UCSC community until his death in 1998. His vision, integrity, and deep commitment to higher education played an essential role in the successful development of the campus.

This is the volume one of a three-volume oral history.
