The position of Senior Dean, as well as that of Junior Dean and Bursar, was set up by Provost Temple (1609-27), probably in the second decade of the seventeenth century. It is therefore, one of the oldest officerships in the College. Originally responsible for maintaining discipline and keeping the keys to the College treasury, the role has grown over the centuries and is now involved in many aspects of College life. A brief history of the role of the Senior Dean is available here and a list of Senior Deans is available here.
