The Fowler lecture program serves as an open forum on public affairs. In additional to classroom sessions with Roanoke College students, guest lecturers give public addresses, free of charge, to the community. Since its initiation in 1983, the program has brought to campus such political luminaries as former presidents, former U.N. ambassadors, former Supreme Court Justices, foreign heads of state, Senators, eminent journalists and social critics, and speakers of distinction from all areas of human endeavor.
The collection is housed in the JSTOR Open Community Collections. It consists of digitized photographic slides and other digital images that document the speakers and some of their activities on campus during their visits.
