The Arthur C. Wickenden Lectures are named for the founding chair of what, at its inception in 1927, was called the Department of Religion at Miami University--one of the two oldest departments devoted to the study of religion at an American state-supported university. The memorial lecture series was founded in 1970 by Miami graduate Rev. Walter Simmons and members of the Wickenden family, in commemoration of Professor Wickenden's life and in celebration of the human spirit.
