Jeff Metcalf’s legacy lives on.
Back when career guidance was all but nonexistent, Harold R. “Jeff” Metcalf, AM’53, dean of students in the Graduate School of Business (1956–75) and the University’s athletic director (1976–81), used his vast network of contacts to help College students find jobs. “He was his own little placement office,” says Byron Trott, AB’81, MBA’82, who established the Metcalf Internship Program in his honor. Metcalf helped Trott get his first summer job; now Trott is managing partner at BDT Capital Partners and a University trustee.
