Hide Profile

Livingston Farrand was born in 1867 in Newark, New Jersey. He graduated from Princeton University in 1888, and took an M.D. degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. He was an instructor in psychology at Columbia University, and later adjunct professor. Interested in primitive psychology, he joined expeditions to the Pacific northwest with Franz Boas and others, and was appointed professor of anthropology at Columbia in 1903. Farrand was deeply concerned with public health questions, serving as Executive Secretary of the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis from 1905 to 1914. In 1914 he became President of the University of Colorado. In 1917, as director of the Anti-Tuberculosis Commission, he worked in France under the auspices of the International Health Division of the Rockefeller Foundation. His success led to his appointment after the war as chairman of the Central Committee of the American Red Cross. In 1921 he was inaugurated as the fourth president of Cornell University, a position he held until 1937. He died in 1939.
