Historical Note

Harvard Business School was founded in 1908. In the early years many of the faculty members were both traditional academics and "real-world practitioners" recruited from industries to teach at the business school. From the 1920s through the 1950s, many of the new faculty came from HBS MBA and doctoral programs. In addition to teaching and conducting research at HBS, faculty are actively engaged with many outside activities such as serving on boards of directors and as presidents of professional research membership societies, receiving awards, and presenting speeches and lectures. The staff at HBS have been involved in the daily operation of the school as well as conducted research with faculty members.

Series Outline

The collection is arranged in the following series:

Scope and Content Note:

The collection consists of photographs of HBS faculty, HBS staff and research fellows. Faculty photographs include many portraits as well as photographs of teaching in classrooms, speaking at various events, social life, researching in faculty offices, and other images documenting the daily activities of HBS faculty.
Staff photographs consist mostly of portraits and also include photographs of staff working in offices and socializing. The collection includes photographs of HBS departments, including the Bureau of Business Research and the Division of Research (later named the Division of Research and Faculty Development), the Audio-Visual department, the Written Analysis of Cases (WAC) graders, and the Office of the Dean and faculty support staff at Morgan Hall, among other departments.
The collection also includes portraits of individuals who have received fellowships at HBS; and portraits of individuals who are affiliated with HBS including donors such as George F. Baker.
