Dr. Sidney L. Gulick, Jr., was born August 17, 1902, in Kobe, Japan, where his father, Sidney L. Gulick Sr., was a missionary. He earned his bachelors degree in English at Oberlin in 1923, and returned to Japan thereafter to teach English and piano at Doshisha University in Kyoto. He returned to the United States in 1924, subsequently earning his master's and doctorate degrees at Oberlin and Yale, respectively.  His research focused on the fourth Earl of Chesterfield, Lord Stanhope.

Dr. Gulick joined the SDSU faculty in 1945. He later was named chairman of the English Department, and in 1959 became the first Dean of Arts and Sciences. Gulick was frequently quoted in the national media during the 1950s when, as a member of the National Council of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), he spoke out against the accusations of Communist leanings that became common with the rise of Sen. Joseph McCarthy. Among his many accomplishments, perhaps the most enduring was the preamble to the college's Academic Master Plan, which Gulick authored in 1962 and is still regarded as a classic in its field.

Dr. Gulick passed away February 5, 1988.
