dc.description.abstract The greatest achievement of Henry Leveke Kamphoefner (1907-1990) was his service as dean at the School of Design (SOD) of the North Carolina State University (NCSU). Therefore, the purpose of the research was to develop a history of Dean Kamphoefner's educational career during the nearly twenty-five years that he administered the SOD from 1948 through 1972, and in which he elevated the school from obscurity to prominence. The study also contains background information about Henry Kamphoefner the man and key developments in architecture and design education that occurred before he came to North Carolina. In addition, a brief accounting is made of his life after 1972. Dean Kamphoefner was a modernist and he passionately dedicated himself to advancing the principles of modern design. The dissertation records the major events and trends of the Kamphoefner administration, his design and educational philosophies, and an account of the goals, plans, strategies, and outcomes that he respectively employed and achieved in the service of design education in North Carolina. en_US
