RobPrestezog and StonyLohr were deciding what positions to have on the DormBallot? while eating in Platt. They thought it would be amusing to have Proctor as one of the elected positions (as this position is chosen by the DeanOfStudents? office and not EastDorm voters).
Once they had this brilliant idea, they thought it might be funny to have Vice Proctor be a position. Of course, this was quickly modified into the ProctorOfVice position we have today. The proctors of vice run a bar every ViceParty, such as PresentationVice.
The first ProctorOfVice, PatriAaronForwalterFriedman, was elected in the Spring of 1997 for the 97-98 school year.

Alex, what was your platform when you ran for ProctorOfVice? I seem to remember it was funny and I can't remember it at all... --KatieLewis
"Right now, you (yes, YOU) are probably reading this thinking, "Why on earth is Alex running for Proctor of Vice!? Isn't he supposed to be a beacon of purity?" Yes, I am a beacon of purity, which is exactly why I would be the perfect proctor of vice. See, the job of the POV is to encourage others to be more viceful. By concentrating purity in myself (and my helper-monkeys) I will be allowing *other* people to partake in more vice. By not dating, I leave more people available for viceful pursuits. By not drinking, I ensure there is enough alcohol to go around. Just as Momar works hard so that we don't have to, I maintain purity so that you don't have to. Uh huh. Bet you never thought of it that way, did you?
But there are many other reasons why I should be Proctor of Vice. To name a few:
So anyway, you should all make me the East Dorm Proctor of Vice. If nothing else, I'll be horribly amused if you do, and you are all clowns for my amusement. Vwa ha ha ha!"
The candidates for this position in 05-06 were (in order of appearance) MacKenzieStuart, BrianYoung, and AndrewDanowitz?. Choice quotes from the campaign on EastDormSchmack:
