Administrative History

The College of Commerce (1929-1959) was an administrative unit at Brigham Young University.

The College of Commerce and Business Administration was renamed the College of Commerce in 1929 and continued in operation until it was established under the name of the College of Business in 1959. During its years of operation, the deans and acting deans were Harrison V. Hoyt, Herald R. Clark, William F. Edwards, and Weldon J. Taylor.

The College of Commerce was originally organized with the purpose to provide training for leadership in finance and industry as well as helping students gain skills to analyze business conditions for efficiency in office administration and to meet the demands of the industrial and financial world.

Between 1929 and 1959, the College of Commerce was the administering body for the following departments: Finance and Banking, Accounting and Business Administration, Political Science, Economics, Marketing, Agricultural Economics, Office Practice, Secretarial Practice, Secretarial Training, Accounting, Business Administration, Business Management, Business Education and Office Management, and Industrial Management. The college was administered by a dean under the direction of the president of the university.
