Stieglitz Memorial Fund

In 1989 Mr. and Mrs. Lewis N. Stieglitz, M.D. from Concord, New Hampshire, established an endowed fund in memory of their son Martin, a Sociology major, who died in an off-campus apartment fire, spring semester, 1989.  The fund enables the Department to invite prominent sociologists and anthropologists to campus each year as Stieglitz Lecturers.
