Scientific Research and Social Well-being


    IN his University Research Lecture, 1935–36, delivered at the University of Colorado, O. C. Lester, discussing the development and present status of graduate study and research in the University of Colorado, emphasized the importance of the spirit which animated the Graduate School and the attitude of the faculty to original creative work. The University of Colorado Studies was started chiefly as a medium for the publication of original work by members of the faculty and has been the chief medium of exchange with other universities, and gives important encouragement to creative work by affording a medium for publication.
