Sixth Annual Ava Helen Pauling Memorial Lecture for World Peace
October 28, 1987

Nobel laureate peace activist Adolfo Pérez Esquivel lectured on the Oregon State University campus on October 28, 1987 as the sixth 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.
