Note to Researcher: Albert Heckel came to MU from Lafayette College in 1924 to serve as the University's first Dean of Men. He stepped down from the deanship in 1940 and continued teaching courses in Citizenship and the Department of History. In 1952 Heckel retired and was distinguished as Professor Emeritus of Citizenship. He resided in Columbia until his death in 1965.
The position of Dean of Men was created in 1924. It was discontinued in 1940 after the resignation of Heckel and replaced by the Office of Director of Student Affairs for Men. The first director of this new office was Darwin A. Hindman.
