Traywick, Leland E.
Leland E. Traywick was president of the Municipal University of Omaha from 1965 until 1966. At this time, the Board of Regents was considering merging OU with the University of Nebraska, a move which Traywick opposed. Due to irreconcilable conflict with the regents, he resigned at the end of 1966. He held bachelor's and master's degrees in history from the University of Missouri and a doctorate in economics from the University of Illinois (1942). Prior to his time at OU, he served at Western Reserve University in Ohio, Michigan State University, and Southwest Missouri State College.
