Lecture series will explore whether Yale
and New Haven share a 'common vision'

Members of the University community are invited to attend a three-part lecture series on the theme "Yale and New Haven -- Is There a Common Vision?" sponsored by the Yale Club of New Haven.

"Whether we choose to live in New Haven or in the suburbs, New Haven provides us with culture, entertainment, medical care and other services that are all a part of our daily lives," notes DeForest W. Smith, president of the Yale Club of New Haven. "As members of the Yale community, it has become increasingly clear that there is a need for a nurturing and symbiotic relationship between the City and Yale, in order for each to succeed and thrive."

The series will open on Wednesday, May 5, with a talk on "Yale and New Haven -- The Twentieth Century," by Gaddis Smith, the DeVane Professor of History.

This will be followed on Wednesday, May 12, with a look at "Arts and Entertainment in New Haven -- Now and in the Future." The featured speakers will be Paul Collard, director of the International Festival of Arts and Ideas; Douglas Hughes, artistic director of Long Wharf Theatre; Patrick McCaughey, director of the Yale Center for British Art; and Jock Reynolds, director of the Yale University Art Gallery.

The series will conclude on Tuesday, May 18, with "Is There a Common Vision?" featuring New Haven Mayor John DeStefano Jr. and Bruce Alexander, Yale vice president and director of the University's Office of New Haven and State Affairs.

Admission to the series is free. All talks will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of Luce Hall, 34 Hillhouse Ave.
