Abstract of InterviewKeith V. Smith, Professor Emeritus Krannert School of Management, was born in Birmingham, Alabama and moved to the Midwest when he was 13. The family had thought of settling in Fort Wayne, Indiana but settled in Bryan, Ohio instead. He earned his B.S. from Ohio State University in 1960, M.B.A. in 1961 and Ph.D. from Purdue in 1966. Prior to coming to Purdue as Dean of the Krannert School of Management in 1979, he was associate dean at UCLA Graduate School of Management. Keith was the third dean of the school and the first alumnus of the Krannert School to serve as dean. He talks about challenges, initiatives, opportunities, and goals in his deanship, as well as a leaders role in the academic world. He hired Kerry P. McClanahan to develop alumni as an advisor to the Krannert School on a wide range of management and education topics. He stepped down as dean on July 1, 1983 and returned to teaching and research in management. He received the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the College of Engineering, The Ohio State University in 2000. In retirement he co-authored with his wife Jane A.
