Dean Carleton Parker

Carleton H. Parker named first dean

Carleton H. Parker (1917-18) is appointed dean of the new School of Business Administration by UW President Henry Suzzallo. A rising star in labor economics, Parker lays a solid foundation for the future with his vision of educational experience more engaging than the traditional textbook-lecture format. Tragically, he dies of complications from pneumonia just a year after taking the job.
