Harry A. Garfield, A.B., LL.D., president of Williams College, will deliver a lecture on "Education" in the Living Room of the Union this evening at 8 o'clock. The lecture will be open only to members of the Union.
This will be the first of the series of six lectures on professions, which have been arranged by the Governing Board of the Union this year in pursuance of the original scheme so successfully introduced last year for the first time, namely, to secure men prominent in the principal professions to set forth to the undergraduates the nature and requirements of their respective professions. President Lowell will be present in order to introduce President Garfield.
