Biographical or Historical Information
The Center for Applied Research was established in 1874 as a division of the Bryan School of Business and Economics. G. Donald Jud was named its first director. The purpose of the Center was to promote research by faculty in the School of Business and Economics in areas that affect the direction of business and economic development in North Carolina and the Southeast.
In October 1974 the first copy of the North Carolina Review of Business and Economics was published by the Center for Applied Research. It was distributed free to individuals, businesses and others throughout the state. It was typically published four times a year (July, October, January, and April). It ceased publication in 1986.
In 1976, the Center for Applied Research published its first major directory, the North Carolina Directory of Trade and Professional Associations, which was compiled and edited by Mr. Robert Norton. It was typically updated every two years.
In the Fall of 1978, the Center initiated a faculty working paper series to provide a mechanism for the reproduction and distribution of faculty research efforts that were not yet published. The series provided a medium for the dissemination of faculty research findings during the period between the initial writing stage and final publication. In June 1985, John G. Redmond became the director of the Center for Applied Research as Don Jud stepped down to become the Head of the Department of Finance.
