The LaFollette Lecture Series was established by the Wabash College Board of Trustees to honor Charles D. LaFollette, their longtime colleague on the Board. The lecture is given each year by a Wabash College faculty member who is charged to address the relation of his or her special discipline to the humanities, broadly conceived.
