Arthur Dickinson

To:  Members of the Faculty
From:  J. W. Maucker, President
Date:  May 3, 1966

Mr. Arthur Dickinson, Associate Professor, Emeritus, at State College of Iowa, passed away Friday night, April 29, 1966, in Phoenix, Arizona, following a series of heart attacks.

He was born on October 14, 1896, at Shellsburg, Iowa, was graduated from the State College of Iowa with the B. A. degree in 1917, and received the M. A. degree from the University of Iowa in 1933.  Prior to joining the staff at State College of Iowa in 1924, he coached at Adair, Washington, and Marshalltown.

For thirty-four years Art enjoyed an unusually successful career at S. C. I. as track coach and trainer.  For many years he was director of the Iowa State Teachers College Relays, later renamed the Art Dickinson Relays in his honor.

Although Mr. Dickinson assumed emeritus status in 1963, he continued to serve on a part-time basis in the Department of Physical Education for Men until the time of his death.

The funeral service will be at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, May 6, 1966, in the First Methodist Church in Cedar Falls. The flag will be flown at half-mast Friday afternoon, and the Campanile bells will be played during the time of the funeral service in memory of Mr. Dickinson.

A memorial fund in Art's name is being established in the State College of Iowa Foundation.  It has been suggested by members of the family that they would prefer contributions to the memorial fund rather than flowers.
