T. Wayne Davis Chair in Entrepreneurship - Professor David Deeds

Initially established in the College of Business Administration with seed funds from the State of Iowa in 1986, the T. Wayne Davis Chair in Entrepreneurship was fully endowed and became UNI's first named chair in 1996 following Adele Davis' generous gift in memory of her husband, T. Wayne Davis. The chair enabled UNI, to appoint a senior faculty member to continue the tradition of support for small business that was so important to Mr. Davis.

Two years after his death in 1992, T. Wayne Davis, founder of Control-o-Fax Corporation and developer of the Control-o-Fax system, was inducted posthumously into the Iowa Business Hall of Fame. Not only was Mr. Davis a consummate entrepreneur in his own right, but his accounting innovation, the Control-o-Fax billing system, aided hundreds of small firms and professionals in gaining control of their accounting and billing systems, enhancing their own prospects for financial success.

Mr. Davis was also an active proponent of his community, tirelessly contributing his time, energy, and money to numerous causes, both in the community at large and at the University of Northern Iowa.
