The Rev. [Royden B. Davis], 78, a Jesuit priest who was dean of Georgetown University's college of arts and sciences from 1966 to 1989, died of congestive heart failure April 2 at the Jesuit residence at the University of Scranton (Pa.).

In his role as an educator in that era, he very much welcomed people with new ideas, said the Rev. William C. McFadden, acting chairman of the Theology Department at Georgetown.

Father Davis was a native of Ventnor City, N.J. After serving in the Army as a gunner in an anti-aircraft battery during World War II, he attended Georgetown, where he received a bachelor's degree in economics in 1947 and a law degree in 1949.
