Scope and Content Note

(A82-58)
This Record Sub-Group contains professional and personal papers of Arthur W. Nebel from the early period of his association with the University of Missouri (1922-1940). A majority of the records stem from the years Nebel served as Director of the Department of Public Assistance within the Missouri Social Security Commission (1937-1939). A large number of the records consist of informational publications by government agencies or educational institutions about social welfare programs and legislation collected by Nebel in the course of his work. Other records found in this Sub-Group are course notes, student papers, correspondence, case histories, research materials, speeches, bibliographies, and news clippings. Among the topics represented in the records are welfare issues, including child labor and old age assistance, studies like the "Study of Relief and Related Activities in Randolph County, Missouri" by C. T. Pihlblad and the Cooperative Study of Relief in Missouri, and sharecropper evictions in Sikeston, Missouri.

Biographical Note:

Arthur W. Nebel (1908-1993) received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Missouri in 1930. From 1932 until 1934 he studied part-time at the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis before returning to the University of Missouri where he received a Master of Arts degree in Public Welfare in 1935. Appointed an instructor in Rural Sociology at MU in 1935, he spent a part of the next two years attending courses at the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago. He became an Assistant Professor of Sociology at MU in 1937. From October 1937 until September 1939 Nebel was on leave from his University duties while he served as the Director of the Public Assistance Division of the State Social Security Commission of Missouri. In 1943 Nebel was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor. In 1946 Nebel became the Executive Secretary of Missouri's Children's Code Commission.

He resigned his position in the Department of Sociology in 1947 to become director of the Missouri Crippled Children's Service, a position he held until 1954 when he returned to the University as a Professor of Social Work and the Director of the School of Social Work. He became Dean of the School of Social and Community Services in 1965 and continued in this role until 1974. A year later Nebel retired and accepted emeritus status. He continued to serve the Dean's Office of the College of Public and Community Services as a consultant until 1978.

Nebel served as President of the Missouri Association of Social Welfare in 1940. He was a council member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), serving on the special Committee on Intercollegiate Athletic Costs in the late 1960s and supervising a study of athletic costs made by the University of Missouri for the NCAA at the end of the decade. He received the Distinguished Service Award from the NCAA.
