Northwestern University (Evanston, Ill.). Center for Mathematical Studies in Economics and Management Science

 Organization

The Northwestern University Center for Mathematical Studies in Economics and Management Sciences was organized in 1972. The purpose of the Center is to analyze economic organization and systems of managing and controlling economic activity. It was the seventeenth interdisciplinary center to be established at Northwestern. Its first participants included twenty-three Northwestern faculty members from the Technological Institute, the Graduate School of Management and the Departments of Economics and Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences. The first director was Professor Stanley Reiter who held joint appointments in the Economics and Mathematical Departments of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School of Management. The idea for the Center originated from meetings involving Reiter; Leon Moses, Economics Department Chairman; Arthur Hurter, Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences Department Chairman; and Walter S. Owen, Vice President for Science and Research. At the time it was established, the Center was entirely funded by the University.
