The GSAS began as the Graduate School in 1916 in the Woolworth Building. The Graduate School expanded rapidly with part-time students, but in effect became a diploma mill, especially for public school teachers seeking promotions. The dean of the Graduate School was also the Dean of Fordham’s Teachers College, Downtown College and School of Sociology and Social Service. The poor academic record of the GSAS was a major reason why Fordham failed to obtain membership of AAU’s list of Universities of Complex Organization in the 1930s. One of Gannon’s achievements was to restore the reputation of the GSAS.
