E.T. York Distinguished Lecture Series Committee

Function: 

The Committee will recommend lecturers to the Dean of the College of Agriculture and will coordinate all activities associated with the Lectureship.

The E.T. York Distinguished Lecture Series was established to provide intellectually stimulating experiences for faculty, staff, and students and to contribute to the further enhancement of the programs of Auburn University.  It was established in the Auburn University College of Agriculture in 1981 through a gift from E.T. and Vam Cardwell York. Both were native Alabamians and Auburn University graduates.  Dr. E.T. York served as director of the Alabama Cooperative Extension System from 1959 until 1962.  He then went on to head the USDA’s Federal Extension Service in Washington, D.C.  Later, he served as provost and vice president for agriculture at the University of Florida and then chancellor of the State University System of Florida until his retirement in 1980.  He passed away in April of 2011 but his legacy lives on through this series.  The E.T. York Distinguished Lecture Series features internationally known speakers addressing issues related to agriculture, food, the environment, and natural resources.
