Description

Harold Petersen of Fertile, Minnesota (population 842), joined Boston College’s economics faculty in 1960 with a Ph.D. from Brown University. He would spend the next 56 years on the Heights, chairing his department twice (1971–78 and 1984–88) and teaching more than 10,000 undergraduates in courses such as “Capital Markets,” “Statistics,” and “Econometrics.” Petersen spoke with @BC on April 14, a month before he retired in his prime. ---- A production of Boston College Magazine's @BC Studio http://at.bc.edu Producer: Ravi Jain; Video: Miles Benson, Paul Dagnello, Ravi Jain.
