Description

Frederick H. Koch received a Master's Degree from Harvard, and UND hired him as an Instructor in English (1905-1906), Assistant Professor of Public Speaking (1906-1907), Dramatic Literature and Oratory (1907-1945), and as an Associate Professor of Dramatic Literature (1915-1918). He left UND for the University of North Carolina in 1918 and received an honorary Doctorate of Literature degree from UND in 1935. Koch was also the founder of the Sock and Buskin Dramatic Society in 1910. This society introduced a strong tradition of quality theatre to UND. Sock and Buskin held regular bi-weekly meetings where students "enthusiastically united in critical analysis of dramatic productions." (Information from: 1914 Annual)
