On Monday, March 4, at the Raymond A. Mason School of Business, a portrait of Charles L. Quittmeyer BA ’40, the founding dean of the school, was revealed to donors, former colleagues and members of the Quittmeyer family.
Dr. Quittmeyer was a visionary and tireless in his mission to elevate the academic standard of, and create respect for, a highly accredited business education at William & Mary.
In his own words, "The positive attainments of the School have been many but above all it has survived, gained recognition, and is positioned for what appears surely to be a fine future. Its solid undergraduate and graduate corps of students have ability and the academic and personal attributes for broad success; and growing alumni support for the school stretches into the future."
The portrait by Williamsburg artist Connie Desaulniers BA '75 was commissioned by members of the MBA Class of 1967 led by Edward L. Flippen, Esq. MBA '67, J.D. '74, a former member of W&M's Board of Visitors. The portrait hangs in Alan B. Miller Hall in the Dean's Conference Room as a visual representation of how far the School has come and a reminder of what can be accomplished through determined leadership.
