Lloyd W. Chapin’s thirty-five year career in the realm of academia began at a young age. Born the son of a pharmacist, he graduated from Emory University in 1923, earned a master’s degree at Harvard, and quickly became an English professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Shortly into his career at Tech, he became the university’s Registrar. However, he only kept this position for a short time before moving on to pioneer new offices at the Institute. Lloyd W. Chapin was the first person to hold the position of Dean of Faculties at Georgia Tech, attaining this position in September of 1948. His passion for academics carried over into the work of his son, who became the Dean of Faculties at Eckerd College in Florida.
