Fifth Annual Ava Helen Pauling Memorial Lecture for World Peace
October 14, 1986

Economist and author Dr. John Kenneth Galbraith lectured on the Oregon State University campus on October 14, 1986 as the fifth Ava Helen Pauling Memorial Lecturer for World Peace. The Ava Helen Pauling Lectureship for World Peace was jointly established in 1982 by Dr. Linus Pauling and the OSU College of Liberal Arts in memory of Mrs. Pauling's multi-decade commitment to issues of peace and civil liberties. In 1995 the Lectureship was renamed to include Linus Pauling, who had died in August of the previous year.
