Now that Roger Blackwell, a chaired professor in marketing at the Fisher College of Business (Ohio State Univ.) has been convicted of insider trading, the University is faced with the decision of what to do with the Blackwell Inn, a beautiful hotel/restaurant located next to the business school and across the street from the football stadium. The Blackwell Inn is named after Mr. Blackwell. (See Article)
I want to put in a plea for keeping the name the same. Blackwell's story, an Ohio farm kid who makes good only to slip at the end of his career, is one worth remembering and very educating for the next generation of business school students. The Inn will always have this tag line, this inside story, and get more publicity not less and the publicity will be have its own education purpose. Keep the name.
