That Henry Floy will succeed William Kent as dean of the College of Applied Science at the University is said to be practically settled, although announcement is deferred. Mr. Floy came to Syracuse Saturday to confer with Chancellor James R. Day. They were together for several hours, and Mr. Floy after looking over the situation went to New York. Neither he nor Chancellor Day would tell the result of their conference.

Mr. Floy is an electrical and mechanical engineer. For several years he has had an office as consulting engineer at No. 220 Broadway, New York. He was graduated with the degree of bachelor of arts at Wesleyan University in 1889 and took the degree of mechanical engineer at Cornell University two years later. Soon afterward he opened an office in New York. His work as engineer in connection with high tension long-distance transmission of electricity has attracted special notice.

In 1904 Mr. Floy was a juror of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. He is president of the Henry Floy Company and is connected with the National Consolidated Company.

Mr. Floy is a member of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, the Illuminating Engineering Society and the Phi Beta Kappa, Psi Upsilon and Theta Nu Epsilon fraternities. He was born in Elizabeth, N. J., in 1886 [sic] 1866 and lives in East Orange, N. J.
