Gregory Baker Wolfe
Gregory Baker Wolfe (January 27, 1922 – December 12, 2015) was a United States diplomat during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, and later President of two urban institutions of higher education, Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, and Florida International University (FIU) in Miami, Florida.
Wolfe was president of Florida International University from 1979 until his resignation in 1986, during which time he oversaw significant growth as the university progressed from being an exclusively upper-division school (having no freshman or sophomores) to becoming a four year college granting post-graduate degrees. The Florida State Legislature recognized Wolfe's contributions to the growth and emergence of FIU by naming the Gregory Baker Wolfe University Center, located on FIU's Biscayne Bay Campus, in his honor.
Wolfe died in Coral Gables, Florida.
