Collection Historical Note

The Graduate School of Economics and Government was a three year program to teach various aspects of public service, beginning in September 1923, under the auspices of Washington University.  Students studied their first year in St. Louis, and then spent two years in Washington D.C. living in a building known as the Residence Foundation.  In 1924, the program was separated from the University, over concern that the University’s charter did not cover programs operating out of state.  Taking on a new name, the Robert Brookings School of Economics and Government, the program continued as a separate organization.  In 1927 it was consolidated by Robert Brookings with the Institute of Government Research and the Institute of Economics to form The Brookings Institute in Washington, D.C. (See also: Candace O’Connor. Beginning A Great Work: Washington University in St. Louis, 1853-2003., 138-139.)
