Additional Information Chase Nebeker Peterson[1] (born December 27, 1929) was the president of the University of Utah from 1983 to 1991. Peterson was born in Logan, Utah where his father, E. G. Peterson was the president of what is now Utah State University. Peterson received both his bachelors degree and MD from Harvard University. He then began a private medical practice in Salt Lake City but was later prevailed upon to return to Harvard to take up the post of Dean of Admissions. While dean of Admissions, Peterson chose to not go the route of quotas, instead choosing to hire an African-American to be part of the admissions staff, to use African-Americans in recruiting and in other ways try to affirm the university's support and inclusion of African-Americans without actual quotas.--wiki
