Dean Mervin T. Sudler

In a case involving cronyism by Governor Davis, Building Superintendent John M. Shea and Dean Mervin T. Sudler of the Med Center are relieved of their duties against the wishes of Chancellor Lindley. A few months later Lindley was the target and he was also dismissed by lame-duck Gov. Davis, only to be reinstated by new Gov. Ben Paulen a few days later.  Paulen then proceeded to create the Board of Regents to keep cronyism out of academics.
