Biographical Note

John C. Howell (b. 1928) received his B.A. in 1951 and M.A. in 1952 from Texas Christian University. He moved on to Duke where he worked as an instructor from 1954-1958. When he received his Ph.D. Howell joined the faculty of Michigan State University in 1958 in the Department of Sociology. His primary fields of interest were juvenile delinquency and corrections.

In 1964 Howell was appointed an assistant, later Associate Dean in the College of Social Science. In this position he was responsible for reorganizing the College's curriculum. Howell was also appointed Associate Dean for Intramural Affairs in the College of Human Medicine. Here, too, he was largely responsible for curriculum development. Dr Howell moved on to the provost's office, from which he took a year leave in 1981, and then retired.
