Sue Jordan Lovelace and Tammy Ota — granddaughters of Len B. and Grace Jordan — joined the Department of Economics in celebration of most recent Jordan Scholarship recipients: Makenzie Peake, Lauren Butler, Holly Bossart, and their families.
The Len B. and Grace Jordan Economics Endowment was established in 1978 in memory of the late Len B. Jordan and his wife Grace Jordan. Len served the state of Idaho first as a member of the Idaho House of Representatives from 1947 to 1949, then as Governor from 1951 to 1955. He served as chairman of the United States Section of the International Joint Commission from 1955 to 1957 and as a member of the International development Advisory Board from 1958 to 1959. In 1962 Len was asked to fill a vacancy in the United States Senate, he was then elected to the Senate in November of that same year and re-elected in 1966 serving until 1973 when he retired.
