2016 Tom McCall Lecture

In 1982, the OSU College of Liberal Arts created the Governor Tom McCall Memorial Lectureship in Public Affairs, using funds remaining from the McCall Chair.  From its beginning, the lectureship has had two goals:  to honor the memory of one of Oregon's greatest governors by keeping alive the ideals and values in public service, journalism, and environmental protection to which he dedicated his life; and to bring to campus notable people in journalism and public affairs who exemplify in their lives the excellence displayed by McCall throughout his career.

Rep. DeFazio gave the McCall Lecture in 2016, entitled "The Future of Representative Democracy." Click here for a link to the 2016 Tom McCall lecture.
