Biographical Note

Peter T. Flawn, geologist and educator, was born in Miami, Florida, in 1926. After studying at Oberlin College, he received his Ph.D from Yale University. He began his career as a junior geologist for the U.S. Geological Survey in 1948 and conducted research at the Bureau of Economic Geology from 1949 to 1960. Flawn came to the University of Texas at Austin in 1960 as a professor of geological sciences. At UT Austin, Flawn served as vice president for academic affairs (1970-1972) and as UT's 22nd and 26th president (1979-1985 and 1997-1998). His accomplishments as president include the implementation of a new core curriculum and higher admissions standards he called a "War on Mediocrity."
