I've forwarded the Gossard enquiry to a friend from the OU at Norman.
Here is his answer.

I forwarded your request to Professor David Levy of the OU history
department. Here's what he found out about Gossard. Can you send this on
to Fauvel?

Andy:-HARRY CLINTON GOSSARD was born in Helena, Ohio on March 13,
1884.He got his B.S. degree from Ohio Northern University in 1901 and
a PhD from Johns Hopkins University in 1912.He taught in rural schools
in Sandusky, Ohio from 1900 to 1906.He came to OU in 1912 and taught
until 1915.From 1916 to 1918, he got assigned to the U.S. Naval
Academy during WWI, but after the war he returned to Norman, 1918-19.
He was at the University of Wyoming from 1921 to 1925 and at Nebraska
Weslyan from 1926 to 1931.At that time he became President of New
