Bob,

I catalog all the theses and dissertations here.  First of all, since I 
do not have the preferred usage, I never make authority records based on 
a thesis or dissertation alone.  Furthermore, I also have electronic 
access to biographical information for all our graduates, so finding a 
year of birth takes about two minutes.  So, even though I do not make 
authority records, I never make an undifferentiated heading in a 
bibliographic record for a thesis or dissertation.
