The Noble Lectures.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Mrs. William Belden Noble of Washington, has given to the University a fund of $20,000 to endow a lectureship in memory of her husband, a clergyman of the Episcopal Church and a graduate of Harvard in '85. The lectures are intended to perpetuate the influence of religion as represented by Phillips Brooks and may deal with any subject upon which Christianity has a bearing. The selection of the lecturers is committed to seven trustees: President Eliot, Professor Peabody, Bishop Lawrence, Dr. Mackenzie, Dean Hodges, Professor A. V. G. Allen, and Dr. George A. Gordon.

The first course of lectures will be delivered in Appleton Chapel on Sunday evenings during March and April on the general subject: "The Message of Christ to Manhood." The first lecture will be delivered March 20 by Professor A. V. G. Allen on the subject, "Christ's Mission to the Individual Man."

Later courses are to be delivered in the Brooks House. The lectures are to be published immediately after the close of each course.
