The Kindahl Era

Show Summary Details

Preview

Between 1965 and 1971, a significant Economics Department was created from what had previously been a Department without professional stature. This occurred mostly under the administration of James Kindahl who was Department head from the fall of 1968 through to the spring of 1971. But the process of reconstruction released considerable tensions and turmoil within the Department. That, combined with the changing organization of, and administrative personnel within, the University led to the resignation of Kindahl from the head position and dissolution of the Department that Kindahl had created.
