II. Historical note

Sister de Lellis Raftrey, O.P., was the first Academic Dean and Registrar of Barry College. Her reports provide specific and fascinating details about the early years of Barry College. The report for the year 1940-41 is organized under the following categories: Registration and Student Personnel, Faculty, Buildings and Equipment, Faculty Activities, Catholic Action, and Student Publication. The report for the second year added Changes in Faculty, Contacts with Accrediting Agencies, Library and Scholarship Gifts, and Equipment and Campus. In 1946, Sister Dorothy Browne, O.P., became the dean, and she entitled her reports, "To the Board of Trustees."

Irvin F. Kyle,Jr., came to Barry College in 1970 and assumed the position of Dean of Faculty for one year. He chaired a two-day conference on curriculum (CON-CUR) January 20-21, 1971, with input from faculty, students, alumni, and members of the Board of Trustees. The major topic of the conference was "Curriculum Flexibility and Graduation Requirements."
