In 1948 Edwin Redslob, who was the rector of the newly founded Freie Universität Berlin, visited the president of Columbia University in New York, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, and thus established the university’s first international contact. During the summer semester of 1950, the new university’s first international student exchange started with Stanford University in California.
