Fordyce W. Mitchel Memorial Lecture Series
The Fordyce W. Mitchel Memorial Lecture Series is sponsored by the Department of History at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Fordyce Mitchel was Professor of Greek History there until his death in 1986. In addition to his work on fourth century Greek history and epigraphy, Mitchel helped to elevate the ancient history program and to build the extensive library resources in that field. The lecture series provides for a biennial series of lectures on original aspects of Greek history and society, given by a scholar of high international standing. The lectures are then revised and published.
