Professor Fred Gruen was Head of the Economics Program, Research School of Social Sciences, the Australian National University from 1972-1986, and inaugural Director of the Centre for Economic Policy Research over 1980-1986. Fred made a significant contribution to Australian economic and public policy debate. His endowment to ANU has led to the establishment of the FH Gruen Distinguished Fellowships for researchers in the fields of economic and welfare policy.
