University Lecture Series

Rodes-Helm Lectures

The Rodes-Helm Lecture Series was endowed in 1961 by Mr. and Mrs. Harold H. Helm of Montclair, New Jersey. Both Mr. and Mrs. Helm were natives of Bowling Green. The lecture series honors the memories of Judge John B. Rodes, former Circuit Judge of Warren County, and Miss Margie Helm, former Director of Library Services at what was then known as Western Kentucky State College. Income from the endowment fund is devoted to bringing outstanding lecturers to the WKU campus.
