Guy Stanton Ford was born on 9 May 1873 at Salem, Wisconsin. His first appointment at the University of Minnesota was as Dean of the Graduate School and Professor of History in 1913. Under his guidance graduate programs were extended, enhanced and post-graduate were organized into a system that allowed individual disciplines to determine course work over which the Graduate School imposed a structure which applied to all graduate students. In 1938, Ford assumed the presidency of the University of Minnesota. He brought to the office administrative skills developed as a dean. His presidency was marked by an emphasis on scholarship. Ford supported academic freedom and influenced the development of the University's tenure code that became a model in American higher education.

Ford was the author of numerous books and articles. He was active in professional societies, serving as president of the American Historical Association and the Social Science Research council. Over his long career he was awarded many honorary degrees and was awarded the Danish Medal of Liberation. After his retirement in 1941 Ford spent 12 years as executive secretary of the American Historical Association and editor of the American Historical Review. He died on 29 December 1962.
