Grateful Arts & Sciences Alumnus Endows Professorship in Industrial Organization

To show his appreciation for the education he received at Washington University, James Langenfeld has contributed $2 million to establish a professorship that will be held by a faculty member in the Department of Economics who works in affiliation with the Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government, and Public Policy. “This meaningful gift from an exceptional alumnus will have an important impact across Arts & Sciences,” says Barbara Schaal, the Mary-Dell Chilton Distinguished Professor and dean of the faculty of Arts & Sciences.
