In 1980, John Brooks Fuqua, Atlanta entrepreneur and philanthropist, endowed the school with $10 million and it was renamed in his honor. Deans have been Louis D. Volpp, 1970-1973; Danny Laughhun, 1973-1974; Tom Keller, 1974-1995; Rex Adams, 1995-2001; Douglas Breeden, 2001-2007; and Blair Sheppard, 2007-
