Historical Note

The College of Arts and Sciences of the University of Arkansas was formally established in 1912. Earlier, all departments which would make up the new college had been a part of the College of Liberal Arts, Sciences, and Engineering. The original curriculum of the college consisted of English, mathematics, history, Latin, some foreign languages, public speaking, and elementary sciences. The College of Arts and Sciences is one of the largest colleges on the campus in terms of students enrolled and number of degrees awarded. The first dean of the college was Edgar F. Shannon who served from 1913 until 1914. Successive Deans of the College of Arts and Sciences were as follows: George W. Droke (1914-1925), John Clark (1925-1927), Virgil L. Jones (1927-1939), Hemphill M. Hosford (1939-1946), Guerdon David Nichols (1946-1965), Robert F. Kruh (1965-1967), Robbin C. Anderson (1967-1971).
