Transcript FIESTA DEDICATION to L. STANDLEE CHIEF MITCHELL The 1958 FRONTIER FIESTA is dedicated to one of the University of Houston's "old-timers"— L. STANDLEE MITCHELL. He is affectionately known to all as "Chief". After receiving his BA in drama from Abiline Christian College in 1928, Chief's love for the theater drew him to New York, there to act in several plays on Broadway. While there he saw a cross-section of American Youth and decided to make his career as an educator. Chief applied for and received a job as Principal of Albany High School in Albany, a Northwest Texas town. In 1932 Chief accepted a position as an instructor of Drama at the Houston Junior College, which later became the University of Houston. While in drama, Chief taught the first course offered in Radio, a thirty-six program series on Texas History. Chief spent six summers acquiring his Masters degree in Education from Colorado State College of Education, and in 1948, when the first associate professorships in English were offered at the University of Houston, Chief was among the recipients of this award. In 1950 Chief was promoted to Coordinator of Student Activities because of his interest in the Student body, and in 1950 he was made Director of Student Affairs and Assistant Dean of Men. Chief is a member of Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity, Alpha Psi Omega Dramatic Fraternity, Phi Delta Kappa Professional Education Fraternity. He is a member of the 20 year club at the University, and a sponsor of Alpha Phi Omega Fraternity and the Pep Club. Chief was instrumental in organizing the Interfraternity Council, and the Alumni Inter- fraternity Council at the University. As one of the original sponsors of FRONTIER FIESTA, Chief has become synonymous with Fiesta and a landmark on the Fiesta Lot. Chief is always ready to lend a helping hand to any student in need, and therefore: The FRONTIER FIESTA ASSOCIATION and the Student Body of the University of Houston feel proud to dedicate this 1958 Fiesta to CHIEF MITCHELL, who truly has helped FRONTIER FIESTA become "THE GREATEST COLLEGE SHOW ON EARTH".
