Joseph Anthony Riehl Collection
 
Collection 15
Riehl, Joseph A. (1906-1989). Papers, 1921 [1939-1965] - 1988
4 feet

Joseph Anthony Riehl was a long-time participant in the USL community as a student, faculty member, and administrator. He earned his Bachelor of Arts from Southwestern Louisiana Institute in 1926 and a Master of Arts from Georgetown University. He served as secretary for Senator Joseph E. Ransdell and took courses at George Washington University while in Washington D.C. At SLI - USL Riehl taught history and served at various times as Registrar, Dean of Men, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, Dean of Administration, and Dean of the University.

The papers focus on various portions of Riehl's career in academia. There are several essays and collections of class notes from his graduate courses. Riehl was in charge of the Navy Training Program at SLI during World War II. The papers contain a great deal of information on the activities of the V-5 and V-12 programs. Materials in Sections I, III, VI and VII are arranged chronologically; those in Sections II, IV and V are alphabetical.

These papers were donated to USL shortly after Riehl's retirement in 1965. Therefore there is little reflection of his subsequent work at the Lafayette General Hospital, as a volunteer in various community organizations, and as an active Catholic layman.

For more material on Riehl's career at USL see his tape and transcript in the USL Oral History Collection.
