    Notes for Prof. Robert Lemuel Sackett:

    He graduated from the Mount Clemens High School; taught school for a year and then went to the University of Michigan, and graduated from the engineering course in 1891. Immediately thereafter he took a position with the U. S. Government on river and harbor surveying. Later he resigned and accepted an appointment as Professor of Mathematics at Earlham College, and there developed the department of civil engineering, of which he was made head. He resigned this position and was elected Professor of Sanitary Engineering and Hydraulics at Pardue[sic]* University, Lafayette, Ind. He took his Master's degree at University of Michigan in 1896. Has made special investigations for the U. S. Geological Survey, and is consulting engineer to the Indiana State Board of Health, and to several hospital commissions. His special work is designing of sewage disposal works and water supply engineering. [Weygant, p. 412]

    Robert L. Sackett is one of Penn State's truly great men. His work at Penn State in educational and recreational activities has given him many national honors and much fame. His reputation as a leader in education and athletic guidance is nation-wide. The responsivilities which the nation has placed upon him have been well fulfilled as evidenced by the many honors given him during recent years.

    As Dean of the School of Engineering for many years he has gained the respect and admiration of many generations of Penn State men. He has taught them well. They remember his long, patient hours of help with problems during undergraduate days, and constantly return to him for advice.

    His work in education does not tell all, because he has served for many years as a leader of various committees on athletics at Penn State. The honor and quality of Penn State sports have been greatly advanced by his guidance.

    Dean Sackett has become a part of Penn State, and the class of 1937 desires to express its admiration by dedicating this fiftieth volume of La Vie to Robert L. Sackett, who has displayed his Penn State Spirit through long years of constant work with the educational and recreational life of thousands of students
