Biography

Wayne G. Broehl was born in Peoria, Indiana in 1922. He obtained his B.S. degree from the University of Illinois in 1946, his M.B.A. from the University of Chicago in 1950, and his D.B.A. from Indiana University in 1954. Soon after his graduation from Indiana, Dean Karl Hill recruited Broehl to teach at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. Broehl created and taught several courses on the topics of agribusiness and business ethics. In 1973, Broehl became the "Benjamin Ames Kimball Professor of the Science of Administration," in addition to his already existing professorship at Tuck and his seat as an adjunct professor in the geography department at Dartmouth. He retired from teaching in 1987. Over the course of his career, Broehl wrote 14 books; perhaps most notably, his book on the "Molly Maguires" organization earned him a Pulitzer Prize nomination in 1964, and was adapted into a film. He also authored business histories of both the John Deere company and the Cargill Foods company. Broehl died June 28, 2006, at his home in Hanover, NH.
