The J.R. Kantor Memorial Lecture brings eminent psychologists to campus for several days to offer lectures to the College community as well as to the Psychology Department, and to meet with students.
Support for this lecture series comes from the estate of the late Prof. Kantor, who spent a long career at Indiana University and the University of Chicago, and who had many ties to the Department of Psychology at Denison.
