A History of Economics and Business at Auburn University is a collection of papers published to celebrate the centennial of Auburn University's economics department and the silver anniversary of the College of Business. David O. Whitten chronicles moral philosophy instruction from its origins at a church college in 19th-century rural, agrarian Alabama to the economics and business taught at the state's largest university. He outlines the history of business in the years before Auburn established a business school, and the evolution of the economics department from one professor - the president of the college - to the modern, highly ranked score of economists.
