House History

NUCKOLLS, Mrs. Bessie Uhl (1886-1963) was a native of Mitchellville, Iowa. She graduated from Grinnell College (Ph.D. 1908) and also from the University of Chicago (M.S. 1928). She taught in several Iowa high schools before her marriage. She was the housemother at Birch and Barton halls from 1927 to 1943 and taught mathematics at Grinnell High School from 1944 to 1951. She returned to Iowa State and was the housemother at the Adelante Fraternity House from 1951 to 1963. The respect that the men had for her is indicated by an article Our Housemother dedicated to her in the Adelante Andiron 1960. One of her brothers, Edwin "Dutch" Uhl, was a well known football player when at Iowa State.
