If one can compare the Yeshiva to a modern college the mashgiach was a
combination Dean of Students and moral and academic guidance counselor.

My grandfather, Rav Avraham Ber PEKER, was a mashgiach at the Lomza
Yeshiva in the early part of the 20th century. I know that in general
usage, a mashgiach is a monitor or supervisor. Can someone tell me what
would be a good translation of mashgiach in the sense it was used in a
rabbinic yeshiva of that era. What were the duties of a mashgiach?
