Isador Straus Professor of Business History, Emeritus, Alfred D. Chandler, Jr. has often been referred to by colleagues as the dean of business history, and his work continues to influence the understanding of this field. His papers track the growth of business history at HBS and the path of a remarkable career through more than six decades of research and writing.
