WSU Renames Un iversity Hall
for Meyer Prentis, GM Pioneer

0

Meyer L. Prentis. a pioneer of
the General Motors Corp., who re-
tired in 1951, was honored Wed-
nesday by Wayne State University
in dedication ceremonies at which
the name of Uni-
versity Hall was
officially changed
to the Meyer and
Anna Prentis
Building.
Prentis, w h o
w a s associated
with General
Motors for 40
years, the last
32 years of which
he was treasurer.
attended the
campus ceremon-
ies with M r s.
Prentis, members
of their family
and friends.
The Meyer and
Prentis
Anna Prentis
Building, designed by Minoru Ya-
masaki, which houses the school of
business administration, was opened
in January, 1964. The building
fronts on Cass Ave. and is a three-
story structure with a unique
first-floor arcade and garden
courtyard with access to Helen
DeRoy Hall. It is directly opposite
the Detroit Public Library.
The decision to rename the
building to honor Mr. and Mrs.
Prentice was made by the univer-
sity's board of governors because
of Prentis' efforts as a member of
the Businessman's Advisory Com-
mittee of Wayne State University
which led to the creation of the
school of business administration
20 years ago.

The school opened in fall
1946, and in October of that
year Walter C. Folley, director
of training and education with
the Ford Motor Co., was named
dean. Dean Folley retired in May
of this year. The initial enroll-
ment included only 459 under-
graduates. In 20 years, this
total has grown to more than
1,400 with 429 graduate students
and a faculty of 55. Its new
quarters are among the most
modern on Wayne's growing
campus.

Prentis attended schools in St.
Louis and was an accountant there
for the Laclede Gas Light Co. He
came to Detroit in August, 1911 as
chief accountant and auditor for
the infant General Motors Co.,
was made comptroller in 1916 and
treasurer in 1919. He served as
treasurer until his retirement in
1951.
A long-time active civic and
philanthopic leader in the De-
troit community, Prentis, a vice
