Carl Copping Plehn (1867-1945) was born in Providence, Rhode Island, on June 20, 1867. After his graduation from Brown University in 1889, he spent two years at the University of Göttingen, where he received the Ph.D. degree. Upon his return from Germany, Dr. Plehn was appointed Professor of History and Political Science at Middlebury College. A year later (1893) he was called to the University of California as Assistant Professor of History and Political Science. In his early years at the University of California he taught courses in Elementary Political Economy, Comparative Constitutional Law, European History, Economic History, Local Government and Administration, and Finance and Taxation. In 1897 Dr. Plehn was made Associate Professor of Economics and in the following year, Associate Professor of Finance and Dean of the Faculty of the newly established College of Commerce, holding the latter position until 1910. In 1904 his title was changed to Associate Professor of Finance and Statistics on the Flood Foundation, and in 1907 he was appointed Professor of Finance on the Flood Foundation. In 1926 he became Flood Professor of Finance, a position he occupied until his retirement in 1937. In addition to serving as administrative head of the College of Commerce, he was for several years Chairman of the Department of Economics. From 1899 to 1900, he also served as the Supervisor of Census for the First District of California (12th Census of the United States).
