Professor Edward Mowatt joined IES Abroad in 1962 as a professor, academic counselor to students and Center Director at the first IES Abroad Center in Vienna, Austria. While in Vienna, Mowatt met and married Eileen C. Benko, Vienna ’67. During his time in Vienna he maintained his professional and personal contacts in England, particularly at the London School of Economics where he had been lecturing in Philosophy. In the spring of 1974, Professor Mowatt founded the London program and served as a professor of Philosophy and the first Center Director until 1979, when he left IES Abroad to pursue other international opportunities. During his tenure at London, the enrollment grew from 19 students in the first year to 184 in 1979. Professor Mowatt designed an integrated unit of study as well as a partnership with the London School of Economics. IES Abroad maintains a London program and has hosted over 6,000 students since its founding in 1974.
