The late Mary Elizabeth Babcock, a Denison alumna and Johnstown (Ohio) philanthropist, endowed the Babcock Lectureship to “bring prominent conservative speakers to campus and thus interpret the genesis, the philosophical under-girding and policy manifestations of the American conservative heritage.”

Here are just a few notable speakers from past years:

  • James Baker, Secretary of State
  • William F. Buckley, columnist
  • George F. Will, columnist
  • Rep. Jack Kemp
  • Sen. Robert Dole, 1996 presidential candidate
