Glover, Butters Receive Promotions To Full Professorships at B-School
Two members of the Business School Faculty have been promoted to the rank of professor of Business Administration, Dean Donald K. David announced yesterday.
J. Keith Butters, authority on finance and taxation, and John D. Glover, specialist in human relations and administrative practice, have both been associate professors at the Business School for five years.
Butters, a graduate of the University of Chicago, received his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1941 and has been teaching at the Business School since 1943. He is currently associate director of the School's tax research project, studying the effects of taxation on business.
A native of Brisbane, Australia, Glover attended Brown University, where he received a Ph.B. degree, and Harvard, receiving both his M.B.A. and his Ph.D. here. At the Business School since 1942, he has served on the secretariat of the Strategic Bombing survey in 1945, and was for several years a special consultant to the United States Air Force in Washington.
Glover has been a major contributor to the new "case method" of teaching, especially in the fields of human relations and business administration.
