George A. Dudley (1914-2005), was an architect who coordinated large civic projects at home and abroad, including the construction of several campuses for the State University of New York. He also guided public construction overseas. As president of the IBEC Housing Corporation from 1948 to 1960, he built more than 10,000 low-cost housing units in Puerto Rico, Peru, Venezuela, Iran and India. In the 1970’s and 80’s, he planned or advised Middle East developments like the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research and the Abu Nuwas effort to revitalize downtown Baghdad.
