Toast to Herman Krannert

Herman C. Krannert made his first contact with Purdue University when he called upon the school's  Department of Animal Sciences to help in treating his cattle.  He was so pleased with his experience that he began to develop several relationships with Purdue, seeking advice for his Indianapolis-based firm, Inland Container Corporation, which included a management development program for his executives taught by Purdue faculty. In 1962, he and his wife donated $2.73 million establishing the Krannert Graduate School of Industrial Administration.

To honor Herman Krannert, we will hold our 4th annual event to pay tribute to the man who has made a clear and significan impact in our lives.  At several locations around the world, Krannert alumni will gather with each other and honor the man that started it all.  We hope that our alumni will join us this year and for many years to come.
