Donald M. Castleberry, who served SFSU for three decades first as professor of political science and later as dean of the Graduate Division, died at his home in San Mateo on Feb. 16, 2003. He was 88.
Castleberry joined SFSU in 1948 and held a variety of senior administrative positions during his 31-year tenure at the University. In addition to teaching courses on government, Castleberry held appointments as chair of the Political Science Department, chair of the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and dean of Continuing Education. In 1967 he was named dean of the Graduate Division, a position he held until his retirement in 1979.
"It was my good fortune to work closely with Don Castleberry for 25 years," said Urban Whitaker, professor emeritus of international relations and a former top administrator who served with Castleberry. "He was a treasured friend, a wonderful colleague and-most importantly for me and for many others on the campus-a world-class mentor."
Whitaker also said that Castleberry's leadership was instrumental in the creation of the current College of Behavioral and Social Sciences.
While at SFSU, Castleberry taught at American University in Beirut as a Fulbright scholar and served as faculty adviser in Sweden for the California State Colleges International Program. Castleberry also led the summer Peace Corps Training Program conducted at SFSU during the 1960s.
