Pitzer Honors Professor Stephen Glass with Annual Humanities Lecture

Stephen GlassPitzer College is pleased to announce the establishment of the Stephen and Sandra Glass Annual Humanities Lecture showcasing leading international figures in the humanities. Professor Glass, Pitzer’s John A. McCarthy Professor of Classics, is being honored for his four decades of service to the College, his essential work as a member of Pitzer’s founding faculty, and his continued commitment to the Pitzer community.

The Glass Annual Humanities Lecture will make a significant contribution to the cultural life of the Claremont Colleges community. The fund is a most appropriate tribute to Steve and Sandy Glass’ many contributions to the Colleges as a whole.

The Glass Annual Humanities Lecture is made possible through the generosity of Nancy Rose Bushnell ’69, and her husband, David Bushnell.

“David and I are making this gift to thank Steve and Sandy both for what they have done for us,” Nancy explained “The lecture series in the humanities is really a reflection of what I know is important to Steve. I am pleased that this endowed fund will provide a path to promoting the humanities to students at all the Colleges.”

The well-known California author, T.C. Boyle, will initiate the Humanities Lecture series in spring 2005.
