In November of 1930, Lee Bidgood and professor H.H. Chapman created the Bureau of Business Research as what Chapman described as “a vision of a state university as being a servant of the state – in providing inspiration and in being a service agency [for] making the state a better place in which to live.” The Center initially consisted of 4 main goals: Building research facilities, rendering aid to members of faculty, carrying on specific research projects, and acting as an agent in the dissemination of information to students and state citizens. The Bureau would later be renamed as the Center for Business and Economic Research.
