Mon., Nov. 3, 1986

At the November faculty meeting, Harry Krebs informed faculty of the status of the search for a candidate to succeed president Samuel A. Banks. The Presidential Search Committee hoped to recommend a candidate to the College's Board of Trustees by May 1987. Krebs, an associate professor of East Asian studies, was one of four faculty members on the committee. As of Nov. 3, the committee had received more than 100 applications, including presidents of other colleges and various high ranking college administrators. George Allan, Dean of the College, became Acting President in the interim between Bank's departure and the selection of a new candidate. Banks, 25th president of the College, left Dickinson on December 1st to assume the presidency of the University of Richmond.
