Other Foundation Funds

The Edward N. Peterson Lecture Series
The purpose of the Lecture Series is in the Memorandum of Endowment Purpose: ". . . to provide a sum of money annually to be used for a history lecture for the University community to honor the memory, teaching and research of Edward N. Peterson."

The lecture should be given by an established scholar or thinker and address a topic related to arenas that were the focus of Dr. Peterson's academic career: war and peace, abuses and limits of power, or the struggle for democracy in the twentieth century.

To all of you who have contributed to the History Department Special Project Funds over the last years, we thank you for your generosity that has made this Series possible. Contributions may be added to the fund over time.
