Lois Gray: Sixty Years of Service and Leadership to ILR

Lois GrayLois GrayLois GrayLois Gray





In February, we met with Lois Gray in ILR's New York City office to capture on tape the wisdom and experience Lois acquired over the span of her 60 years of service and leadership to ILR. Lois was the first employee of ILR Extension, signing on as director of our Buffalo, New York, office in 1946. In 1956, Lois moved to New York City to become director of that office, and later became associate dean and director of the Extension Division in 1976. Lois is the Jean McKelvey-Alice Grant Professor Emerita of Labor-Management Relations, a chair that is awarded to a professor active in both the extension and resident divisions of ILR. Her insights and wealth of experience are a fitting kick-off to ILR’s celebration of its outreach activities.
