1910 - 1915Dean Wilberforce F. "W.F." Bliss
The 1910 San Diego Normal School catalog for the first time listed a new administrative position — Dean of the Normal School. Wilberforce F. "W.F." Bliss, previously a teacher and principal in rural schools in Pennsylvania and Ohio in the late 19th century, assumed the role. Records indicate Bliss was elevated to Vice President in 1915, leaving the Normal School without a Dean of Education until 1927. Pictured: Bliss picnics with students on the beach.
