Description Professor Ray O. Werner taught in the Colorado College Economics Department from 1948 until his retirement in 1987, giving him one of the longest tenures of any faculty member in the history of the college. Born in Edgar, Nebraska in 1922, Werner received his A.B. at Hastings College in 1942, his M.A. in 1947, and his Ph.D. in 1960, both from the University of Nebraska. He served in the U.S. Army during World War II, and as an Army and Air Force Reservist for many years thereafter. Not only was he chairman of the Colorado College Department of Business Administration and Economics from 1956 through 1977, but he also served the college on numerous committees, including the Athletics Board from 1960 to 1982. He was a founder of the college's chapter of Pi Gamma Mu, and co-founder of Blue Key. Among his many contributions to the Colorado Springs community, Werner has served as president of the United Way, president of the Chamber of Commerce, and member of the Board of Directors of the Colorado Springs National Bank, United Bank of Colorado Springs. The recipient of several awards for outstanding teaching, Professor Werner also contributed to many publications in the field of economics, notably as editor of the legal developments in marketing section of the Journal of Marketing.
