Dr. Malcolm S. MacLean, Director of the General College of the University of Minnesota, has been chosen to deliver the annual public Inglis Lecture in Secondary Education, under the auspices of the Graduate School of Education, Dean Henry W. Holmes announced today. He will speak on Wednesday, February 23, at 8 o'clock in the Fogg Museum on the subject of "Scholars, Workers and Gentlemen," discussing contemporary educational conflicts in the United States and the type of educational structure likely to emerge from these conflicts.
MacLean has taken a leading part at the University of Minnesota in the development of an unique program designed to meet the interests and needs of the increasing numbers of young people who seek an education above the secondary level, but different in purpose and content from that of the conventional four-year college. The General College at Minesota has taken the form of a separate college with methods, curricula, and organization especially designed to serve its particular group of students.
The lecture was founded in honor of Professor Alexander Inglis, of Harvard, who died in 1924.
