General Lucius D. Clay will deliver the first of three Godkin lectures on the administration of post-war Germany at 8 p.m. tonight in New Lecture Hall.
Clay, commander of American forces in Germany from 1947 to 1949, will conclude his series with talks tomorrow and Wednesday. Formally titled the "Administration of Germany as a Part of the Fight for Freedom," the speeches will be the second Godkin Lectures of this academic year. Senator Ralph E. Flanders (R-Vt.) gave the first series in December.
The talks will mark Clay's second appearance at the University since he returned to the United States last May and left the Army. He spoke at the alumni exercises in Tercentenary Theatre June 23, after receiving an honorary Doctor of Laws degree at Commencement.
Since his return, Clay has written a book, "Decision in Germany," on his experiences in running the American zone of that country. During the war he served as Deputy to General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Established in 1903, the Godkin Lectures offer discussions on "the essentials of free government and the duties of the citizen."
