"Circumstances unfortunately dictate that we make this announcement," says Ken Bode, Eugene S. Pulliam Distinguished Visiting Professor of Journalism, who coordinates the Crain Series and moderates the lectures.

Endowed by Rance Crain, president of Crain Communications and a member of DePauw's Class of 1960, the lecture series honors Mr. Crain's parents. Previous Crain Lecturers have included political analyst Charlie Cook; director Brooks Jackson; veteran political columnist Jack Germond; military sociologist Charles Moskos; historian Douglas Brinkley, author of Tour of Duty: John Kerry and the Vietnam War ; David A. Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union; and Joe Trippi, who managed Howard Dean's presidential campaign.
