House History

KEHLENBECK, Alfred P. (1906-1969) received his B.A. degree from the State University of Iowa in 1927 and an M.A. in 1928 and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin in 1934. He also attended universities in Germany. He held teaching positions in many universities (Oberlin, Coe, Wisconsin, Virginia, Iowa State) before finally becoming head of the department of foreign languages at Iowa State in 1950. He was a wise counselor of students and highly respected by them both as an advisor and teacher. He was in every sense of the word a student's teacher.
