Abstract:

This report consists of interviews with Dr. Ivan J. Birrer about his career at the Command and General Staff College. On 30 June 1978, Dr. Birrer retired from his position at the Command and General Staff College after completing more than 30 years of service. After his arrival at Fort Leavenworth on 20 January 1948, Dr. Birrer made a series of important contributions to CGSC. Initially hired as a Statistical Consultant, in July 1949 he became Educational Advisor, a title he retained until 1 September 1977 when the title was abolished throughout the TRADOC school system. In 1974, he was also designated Director, Master of Military Art and Science, but this title was later changed to Director of Graduate Degree Programs. These interviews give an accounting of the growth of the Command and General Staff College from 1948 to 1978.
