Faculty Tenure
First PhD
. In June, Clarkson awarded its first PhD (chemistry) to Adria Catala, as 300 other
students received bachelor's and 38 received master's degrees. As a US Public Health Service
Pre-Doctoral Fellow at Clarkson for two years, Ms. Catala worked for her PhD degree with
Clarkson professor and medical research specialist Frank Popp. A native of Havana, Cuba, Dr.
Catala joined the faculty for a year as an instructor of chemistry, after completing her degree.
BS Degrees
. For the first time since 1934, engineering students received a bachelor of science
degree in their chosen field. In the interim, they had received bachelors of civil engineering, of
chemical engineering, etc. New York State required that a student take 50% of his or her
academic work in the arts and sciences, and 50% in engineering (or management, etc.) for a
bachelor of science degree. Only 25% in arts and sciences was required for a bachelor of
engineering degree.

Management; fall enrollment was 1,934.
