The 2013 T.W. Samuels Lecture
Tuesday, April 09, 2013 @ 7:30 PM @ Kirkland Fine Arts Center on the Millikin campus
Allan Sloan, editor-at-large at Fortune magazine, will speak at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 9, in Kirkland Fine Arts Center on Millikin's campus. The event is free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations required.
Sloan's appearance is this year's 2013 T.W. Samuels Lecture. The T.W. Samuels Lecture Series was created in 1977 in honor of attorney T.W. Samuels, senior partner in the Decatur law firm of Samuels, Miller, Schroeder, Jackson and Sly. Samuels was active in Decatur community affairs until his death in 1989 at age 103. Samuels' son, William J. Samuels of Menlo Park, Calif., and the late Dr. Thomas W. Samuels Jr., created an endowment fund to finance the series in recognition of their father. The endowment is used to bring great thinkers and speakers to Millikin for the purpose of community enrichment.
