The Baylor Business School was established in 1923, but our story really begins back in 1919, when President Samuel Palmer Brooks proposed the adoption of a business school. At that time, America was recovering from World War I and enrollment was down. President Brooks was dedicated to raising the academic standing of the University, and believed expanding the curriculum and academic opportunities by creating a business school at Baylor was essential.
The board accepted President Brooks' recommendation without any hesitation and authorized him to take the necessary steps toward establishing a department of business administration. Unfortunately, there was a Business Depression in 1921-1922 and the project was postponed until 1923. In March 1923, President Brooks again approached the board about establishing a business school at Baylor. Other Texas universities had already formed business schools, and President Brooks believed Baylor could move forward with little or no increase in expenses.
Motivated by a boost in university enrollment and the chance to increase academic opportunity for students, the board once again approved the establishment of the business department, named the School of Commerce and Business Administration. Dr. Charles Johnson from the department
