The Robert J. Lampman Memorial Lecture
This lecture series was established in honor of Robert J. Lampman, a professor of economics at UW–Madison for over 30 years and founding director and guiding spirit of the Institute for Research on Poverty. The lecture, featuring eminent poverty scholars, is intended to address topics to which Lampman devoted his intellectual career: poverty and the distribution of income and wealth.
The Lampman Memorial Lecture for 2013 will be:

A memorial has been established by the Lampman family with the help of the University of Wisconsin Foundation to support this lecture series. The lecture series, organized by IRP in cooperation with the UW–Madison Department of Economics, offers a special opportunity to maintain and nurture interest in poverty research among the academic community and members of the public. Contributions to the fund are welcome, to ensure continuation of the lectures. The Institute can accept donations through a secure online giving form provided by the UW Foundation. The form will be pre-filled with information necessary to direct your gift to the Robert J. Lampman Memorial Fund. For more information on how to contribute to IRP please see Gifts and Contributions.
