From Martha Mitchell’s Encyclopedia Brunoniana:

Center for the Comparative Study of Development

The Center for the Comparative Study of Development was established in 1983 to facilitate research and teaching in the problems of socioeconomic development, with Morris D. Morris, Henry R. Luce Professor of the Comparative Study of Development, as director. Dietrich Rueschemeyer was named director in 1989. The Center offers an undergraduate concentration and a master’s program in Development Studies, hosts conferences and interuniversity seminars, and prepares the Physical Quality of Life Index, published by the Overseas Development Council in Washington.
