    HBS would provide a more suitable education and in the spring of 1921 Doriot enrolled at HBS His first job the next year was at the New York Foreign Development Corporation an affiliate of the investment bank Kuhn Loeb Company where he assessed investments in new technologies and made valuable connections in the financial world You gave as needed advice encouragement criticism Always you have urged us into original and constructive thinking upon difficult problems HBS students to Georges F Doriot quoted in a letter from Georges F Doriot to Alice and Lewis Strauss 1928 1 In 1925 HBS Dean Wallace B Donham offered Doriot a position as assistant dean 3 Doriot s career as an educator started when he began teaching Factory Problems and the Taylor System course 4 In 1926 the Dean appointed Doriot Associate Professor of Industrial Management and a few years later Professor of Industrial Management Doriot taught Industrial Management and Manufacturing classes that focused on manufacturing methods and organization material and labor and conduct and control of production It was at this time that Doriot met Edna Allen a research assistant at HBS Edna had moved to Boston from Palo Alto California where she was an assistant to the director of the Food Research Institute at Stanford The couple married in a simple ceremony in New York in 1930 Over the course of their long marriage Edna would come to support Georges in his work in countless ways as a devoted wife friend and confidant They lived for many years in a townhouse on Beacon Hill in Boston where Doriot also enjoyed painting and writing poetry In 1937 Doriot introduced a second year course called Manufacturing a class he created in his own distinct style The description for the full year course noted students would be trained in the thorough analysis of and in the administrative control of a manufacturing company taken up not only from the standpoint of a man who has to reach decisions and carry them out but also from the standpoint of such persons as bankers or consultants 5 The course emphasized the study of products new ideas new developments and questions of research 6 The charismatic professor imbued the class with his philosophy on leadership and business ethics and helped students develop a realistic grasp of executive problems and fitness for the discharge of managerial duties 7 From the beginning Doriot connected the worlds of education and business He believed teaching business administration should be based on the realities of running a company rather than academic theories He drew from his own work as director of numerous companies including Kansas City Southern Railroad Standard Power Light Corporation and McKeesport Tin Plate and as consultant to investment banking firms Doriot taught Manufacturing for decades In the early 1940s however he suspended his teaching activities to serve in World War II where he came face to face with the high pressure realities of the research and development of new products for the
