During our 40th Anniversary of Don Fox Lecture Series, we will be inviting back seven of our former speakers to give another talk on seven Friday afternoons during the Fall 2020 semester. Dr. Donald Fox has had a lasting impression in our department, and we wanted to celebrate our 40th Anniversary with a special Don Fox Lecture Series.

Don Fox was hired by Kearney State Teachers College in 1936. At that time, the department had a very large number of majors as interest in the sciences began growing dramatically. He was a prominent and influential figure in the department; serving as its chair and expressing his interest in science, and in the success of students that were fortunate to call him their instructor. His dedication to the education of students and his development of a solid and vibrant chemistry department continues to live on in the current faculty.
