The Year 1999-2000 marks the Golden Jubilee of the History of Science Program at the University of Oklahoma. It was in December 1949 that an alumnus of the University, Everette Lee DeGolyer, began a series of gifts of books to the University, and the University agreed to the condition that a faculty member be hired to teach the History of Science. These events led ultimately to OU becoming one of the earliest American universities to offer doctoral degrees in this field and to the creation of the renowned History of Science Collections. To celebrate this important milestone, the university will host a daylong symposium on Friday, March 24, of which a detailed schedule can be found on the linked webpage. We are especially pleased to be working with the School of Music and Penelope Gouk of the University of Manchester (U.K.) on the symposium's concluding concert, "Music, Science and Natural Magic in 17th-Century England."
For reservations for the symposium, and for information about the event and accommodations, please contact the History of Science Program at 405-325-2213.
