NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Economist Carl Kaysen, director of the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) at Princeton, will deliver Harvard's annual Godkin Lectures next March 13 and 15.

Formerly a faculty member at Harvard. Kaysen has directed the IAS since 1966 when he succeeded the late J. Robert Oppenheimer.

A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Kaysen received his A.M. and Ph.D. degrees from Harvard. He was appointed associate dean of the Faculty of Public Administration in 1961 and Littauer Professor of Political Economy in 1964. Kaysen took a leave of absence from Harvard in 1961-63 to serve on the staff of McGeorge Bundy, special assistant to President Kennedy for National Security Affairs.

The Godkin Lectures, founded in 1903, are run by the John F. Kennedy School of Government in memory of E.L. Godkin, a 19th century British-American journalist and editor. The lectures must deal with some aspect of "the essentials of free government and the duties of the citizen."
