President Pusey and Business School Dean George P. Baker '25 spoke yesterday at the dedication of McCollom Center-a new building which Baker described as "the finest facility in the world for executive training programs."
"It is a privilege." said Pusey, "to celebrate a constructive achievement when one is confronted with so many destructive words and acts. In McCollom Center we have a kind of sign of what can be done for the improvement of management," he added.
The $1 million Center, not yet complete, will house classrooms and common rooms for participants in the Business School's Advanced Management Program, which brings executives to Harvard for refresher course. The building was named for its principal donor, Leonard F. McCollum, Chairman of the Board of the Continental Oil Company.
The Center's upper floor, finished only hours before the dedication, includes three common rooms, a kitchen, and a bar. The lower floor, which will open within two months, consists of two 90 seat lecture halls. When complete, the Center will house all meetings and seminars for the Advanced Management participants.
