Biographical / Historical

The Office of the Vice-President for Planning was an administrative role at Tufts University responsible for overseeing the planning of construction projects at the university and school level. The position was created in 1962, when Burton Crosby Hallowell was appointed as Vice President for Planning and Development. In 1970, C. Russell deBurlo became the Treasurer and Vice President of planning. In February 1978, John A. Dunn Jr. was named the Assoicate VP for Institutional Planning then becoming full Vice President for Planning in 1979. Dunn proposed a three-year program in 1978 that became the base for the construction of operating and capital budgets. Dunn remained in the position until it was eliminated in November 1989 because the schools individually managed their own planning initiatives and did not need an overseer.
