Abstract outgrowth of Dr. Johnson’s services as presidential appointee to the National Commission on Consumer Finance in 1969. During its 3-year existence the Commission coordinated a massive research program to study the operation of consumer credit markets in the United States. Delivered to Congress in 1972, the Commission’s multi-volume report established the value of academic research for guiding public policy towards markets for financial services. With a combination of foundation and corporate grants, Dr. Johnson established the Credit Research Center at Purdue to provide an ongoing means of directing academic research expertise toward practical problems in consumer and mortgage credit markets. Over the past quarter-century the Center has gained a national reputation for its work in evaluating public policy toward credit markets. The Center’s operations have been sustained by generous grants from both the public and private sectors. Over one hundred articles and monographs by distinguished scholars document its research product. The Center’s senior research staff have frequently testified before Congress and state legislatures on such topics as Truth-in-Lending disclosures, the impact of interest rate ceilings on credit availability, equal credit opportunity regulations, personal bankruptcy, credit insurance, credit scoring, credit card
