Dean Mason of the School of Public Administration will succeed the late Joseph A. Schumpeter as George F. Baker Professor of Economics, Provost Buck announced last night. The appointment is effective July 1.

Mason, who will continue his duties as dean, has taught economics at the University since 1923 and has been a full professor since 1937.
