Spender was here in 1949 to give a Morris Gray Poetry Reading. Last summer he spoke at the Goethe Bicentennial at Aspen, Colorado.
A Glee Club concert and a lecture by Howard Munford Jones, professor of English, on December 1, is the next program in the series.
The anniversary celebration closes on December 8 with a lecture in German by Karl Victor, Kuno Francke Professor of German Art and Culture.
