Frederic C. Wood Lecture

Frederic C. Wood was a member of the Class of 1924 and a former member of the University Board of Trustees (1956-1966).  This occasional lecture was established by Frederic C. and Emma Wood in 1984 to “bring scholars dedicated to innovative religious thought” to Cornell’s campus.  Previous lecturers included Elaine Pagels, Martin Marty, Lloyd Steffen, Karen Armstrong, Michael Eric Dyson, Mark Noll, Bishop Gene Robinson, Phillips Jenkins, and Eboo Patel.
