Claude R. Sowle
Claude R. Sowle served as president of Ohio University from 1969 to 1974. Sowle led the University during a tumultuous time, including the closing of the University because of the riots in 1970 after the Kent State shootings. President Sowle was known for his transparency in office, often broadcasting open budget hearings live over the campus radio stations. The office of the ombuds, the office of institutional equity, and the Honors Tutorial College as we know them today were established during President Sowle's term.
