1 Assignment of major professor was based on the signature on the title page of thesis (or signature of the chair of the reading committee) as well as the individual thanked first in the acknowledgment section of the thesis.


2. Schultz’s degree was issued in the Department of Zoology.  He thanked Thompson, but did not acknowledge Trevor Kincaid.


3 Thompson was the first signature on the title page, but Chapman thanked Schultz first in the Acknowledgment Section of the dissertation.


4 McPhail was Meldrin’s major professor.  After McPhail left the UW in 1966, Allan C. DeLacy became Meldrin’s supervisor.
