Black and white photograph of Carey Croneis, seated.
Dr. Carey Croneis served as the president of Beloit College from 1944 until he came to Rice Institute in 1954 as Provost and the Harry Carothers Wiess Professor of Geology. He served as Provost under President Houston until 1960 and at that time assumed the additional responsibilities of Acting President following President Houston's resignation due to ill health. He served as both Provost and President until the appointment of Kenneth Sanborn Pitzer as President in July 1961. In 1961 Dr. Croneis was named Chancellor and held that position until his retirement in 1970. He was thus named Wiess Professor Emeritus of Geology and Chancellor Emeritus.
