    History of the Ralph Peck Memorial Lecture Series

    The Ralph Peck Lecture Series began in the late 1970s and is held in honor of Ralph Peck, a dynamic teacher and researcher, who was chairman of the chemical engineering department from 1953 to 1967.

    Lecturers are selected via nominations by the department faculty and voted on by a department committee. Previous lecturers have come from all over the country and from academia, government organizations and corporations.
