Norval Neil Luxon (1899-1989) was a journalist, professor of journalism, and dean of the School of Journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 1953-1964. Born in London, Ohio, Luxon served in the Navy, 1917-1919, before earning his B.S. in journalism and M.A. in history from Ohio State University in 1923 and 1931, respectively. In 1940, Luxon received a Ph.D. in history from UCLA after completing his dissertation on the history of the Niles' Weekly Register, a nineteenth-century news magazine. Luxon held a variety of editorial posts on the Columbus Citizen, Canton Daily News, Oteen (N.C.) Skylight , and the El Paso Herald. Luxon taught journalism and served in administrative capacities at Ohio State until 1953, when he was appointed Dean of the School of Journalism at the University of North Carolina. During his tenure at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the school added a Master's program in 1954 and an interdisciplinary program leading to the Ph.D. in mass communications research in 1964.
