James R. Neff Lecture Series

This lectureship "shall perpetuate and honor Everett and Florine Neff, parents of James R. Neff, and Janice K. Neff Standish (sister). It is further intended to represent Dr. Neff's gratitude for the opportunities and education that he received at Kansas State University and to verbally acknowledge Florine and Everett Neff as benefactors of the institution of higher learning."  This lectureship is now funded by an endowment established with a bequest from Dr. Neff.

Talk titles and abstracts can be found in the links below. Please visit the department YouTube Channel for recordings of past lectures if available.
