Dates of existence



David Pearson received a law degree from the University of South Dakota and returned to South Dakota State University in 1957 serving as an Assistant Professor of Economics. In 1959, President Briggs appointed him Special Assistant to the President. He retained his teaching position, attaining Professor status in July, 1965. In 1973, President Briggs named him to the newly created position of Vice President for Administration. In reality, many of the duties Pearson was assigned from 1959 to 1973 were essentially the same as those formally given to him after 1973. In addition, he headed the Greater State Fund, which has grown into what we now know as the SDSU Foundation. David Pearson retired in August, 1980. He died July 10, 1990.
