Personal Commentary

I was the first chairman of the Management Department at SJSU and was the chairman for 11 years.

I founded the student The Society for Advancement of Management at SJSU.

I founded the AIESEC program at SJSU.

I organized and chaired the SJSU School of Business annual achievement banquet for many years (founded the activity).

I served on the first Faculty Council and later the Academic Senate (7 years).

I was awarded the Outstanding Professor Award at SJSU several times and was selected by the Tower Society as the outstanding professor for several years. I was selected as the first recipient of the School of Business most inspirational teacher award.

I was the first advisor for Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and remained as such for 20 years.

I was able to obtain for the students at SJSU an annual award from the National Association of Purchasing.

My many years of being very involved in student advising and student activities at the University were the most rewarding activities of the many years on campus. In fact, it was the student contact which made me desire to stay at SJSU despite many business and other university offers.

Since my retirement from the University, I remain very active in speaking to professional, business and religious groups around‑the‑world. I have made 12 trips to South Africa where I awarded the Nora Wilson Award for outstanding service in "healing" racial relations. (Last there in 1992.)
