The materials consist of audiorecordings of lectures and discussion sessions from Yale University's DeVane Lecture Series.

Biographical / Historical

The DeVane lectures were established in 1969 in honor of William Clyde DeVane, dean of Yale College from 1939 to 1963. The series has traditionally covered a different topic each year, ranging from democracy to Yale's role in the 20th century. The lecture series is organized and financed by the President's Office and is open to the general public as well as to Yale students. Only Yale students though are permitted to attend the discussion sections, and the lecture series counts as a full Yale credit.
