As Tulane University’s A. B. Freeman School of Business begins work on a major expansion and renovation, Dean Ira Solomon hosted a visit from the man responsible for building Goldring/Woldenberg Hall I, former Dean Meyer Feldberg.

Feldberg, who visited the Freeman School in June, served as dean from 1981 to 1986 and oversaw fundraising efforts to construct GW1, the first new academic building to be built on Tulane’s uptown campus in 18 years. Prior to the completion of GW1, the business school was housed in the Norman Mayer Memorial Building. Feldberg left Tulane in 1986 to become president of the Illinois Institute of Technology, and he went on to serve as dean of Columbia Business School from 1989 to 2004. Today, Feldberg is a senior adviser to Morgan Stanley.
