This dataset has gone through significant processing, as documented in the thesisCleaning pdf document included in this FigShare fileset. The thesisCleaning.Rmd file is the Markdown file used to generate the PDF.

Advisor and college names have been extracted from other fields. Chair names have been clustered in OpenRefine to create controlled names (e.g. consistent use of middle initials).
