Stewart Hulslander
Regents' Proceedings 719

Stewart Charles Hulslander, Professor of Education, has concluded a career of twenty-four years of service in the School of Education and is eligible for emeritus appointment.

Born in Troy, Pennsylvania, he earned his B.S. degree at Pennsylvania State College in 1930. He received his master's degree from the same institution in 1948 and was awarded his Ph.D. degree from The University of Michigan in 1955. Prior to his appointment here as Lecturer in Vocational Guidance in 1949, Dr. Hulslander had served as a vocational agriculture teacher in the Pennsylvania public schools, as Area Vocational Adviser and, subsequently, Chief of Occupational Information and Guidance for the Pennsylvania Department of Public Instruction, and as Specialist for the U.S. Office of Education. He had also served for varying periods as a program consultant for NBC and CBS, a partner in a farming enterprise, an inspector for the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, a warden for the Pennsylvania Department of Forests and Waters, and a partner in the Keystone Distributing Company.

After his initial appointment to the University, Dr. Hulslander was promoted to Assistant Professor in 1956, to Associate Professor in 1960, and to Professor in 1964. Since coming to the University he has become nationally prominent for his work in vocational guidance and counseling.

Dr. Hulslander has always been regarded as an outstanding teacher by his students, both in Ann Arbor and by others across the state who benefitted from very active service in extension courses. He was in constant demand as a speaker and consultant to both professional and government-sponsored programs throughout the state. He sought and received substantial federal support for research and training institutes which he undertook in addition to his labors as a teacher.

His colleagues and students happily join the Regents in extending their deep appreciation for his many services to this institution as they confer the title Professor Emeritus of Education.
