The Fritz Lecture is made possible primarily through the generosity of Dr. Kentner Fritz, who established this lecture series in honor of his father, Dr. Martin Fritz, who worked at Iowa State University from 1927 to 1972 and founded the ISU Student Counseling Service.

Co-sponsored by the F. Wendell Miller Lecture Fund.  Mr. Miller, who died in 1995 at age 97, graduated from Grinnell College and Harvard LawSchool. He practiced law in Des Moines and Chicago before returning to RockwellCity to manage his family's farm and to practice law.  Mr. Martin left his entire estate jointly toIowaStateUniversityand the University of Iowa.The annual earnings on this generous gift provided support for this activity.
