  • Guy Stanton Ford, 1938-1941

    Guy Stanton Ford, professor of history, was president of the University of Minnesota from 1938 to 1941. With his earlier service as graduate school dean, he helped to transform the University of Minnesota into one of the nation's top research and graduate institutions.

    After his death in 1962, Ford's family, friends, and colleagues established an endowment fund for the Guy Stanton Ford Memorial Lecture. This lecture, now held once every two years, brings to the University of Minnesota distinguished scholars from many different areas of inquiry, reflecting Ford's own broad intellectual interests.
