William A. Doebele, professor of City and Regional Planning, has been named Associate Dean for Development of the Graduate School of Design.
Doebele will assist Dean Jose Luis Sert in organizing the school's fund drive, expected to begin next fall. The Design School hopes to sell Robinson and Hunt Halls, its present home, to the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and to construct its own building.
Doebele will not teach during the academic year 1965-66. This year he offered Architectural Sciences 110, an undergraduate "Introduction to City Planning."
The new dean graduated from Princeton in 1948 and received a law degree from Harvard as well as a Master of City Planning at the University of California.
He joined the Faculty in 1958 and became a full professor last year. During 1959, he was on sabbatical in Indonesia, organizing the first department of city planning in Southeast Asia, at the Bandung Institute of Technology.
