Harrington Public Affairs Lecture Series

The Harrington Public Affairs Lecture Series is funded by the Francis A. Harrington Public Affairs Fund.

Francis Harrington was a Worcester native, civic leader, vice president and director of the Paul Revere Insurance Companies and a member of Clark University’s Board of Trustees. In 1963, he gave a generous gift to Clark to establish a permanent endowment to fund lectures, seminars, scholarships, fellowships, and other programming in public affairs.

The Political Science Department offers these lectures on a yearly basis.
