Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Morgan Odell was born in Moline, Illinois, and raised in Pasadena California. Immediately after graduating from Occidental College in 1917, Odell was assigned to serve in the World War I U.S. Army Ambulance Corps in Italy. While overseas, Odell correspondended regularly with Ruth Sayre. After the war, Odell returned to Pasadena and married Ruth. He also attended seminary school at the University of Southern California and worked as a minister of Christian Education at the First Methodist Church of Pasadena. Odell went on to the University of Chicago and earned a doctorate in Divinity in 1931. From 1931 to 1941 Odell worked as a professor in religion and philosophy at Occidental College.

During the 1930s, Albany College of Albany, Oregon began looking to move its campus to Portland. After considering a number of different sites for the College, the Lloyd and Aaron Frank family, owners of the Meier and Frank department store, offered to sell its Fir Acres estate in the Dunthorpe neighborhood of Portland to Albany College for $46,000. Aaron Frank, who negotiated the sell for the Frank family insisted that the College hire Morgan Odell as its President. Odell accepted and helped raise the money necessary to move Albany College to Fir Acres in 1942. Under Odell's leadership, Lewis & Clark College raised its enrollment from 145 to 1,200 students, expanded its facilities, and established itself as a respected liberal arts college. Odell retired from Lewis & Clark in 1960, went on to serve as interim dean of the American University in Cairo and vice president for development at Beirut College for Women. Odell died in 1984 at the age of 90.
