Cornell History: Warren Hall
May 23, 1932
Warren Hall is dedicated. The hall was named for George F. Warren, a key economic adviser to President Franklin D. Roosevelt and an international leader in developing the field of farm management in the early 20th century. Warren not only was a revered teacher in the new field of agricultural economics but also influenced state policy on conservation, land use, local government structures, highway improvement, building regional markets and improving rural schools and national economic policy under Roosevelt. He appeared on the cover of Time magazine in 1933.
