The Carl Mark Deppe Memorial Lecture: Alex Purves

May 3, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm  |  Cowell Provost House


Carl Deppe was a charismatic young man and a promising student. In 1985 he was a sophomore at UCSC, studying Greek and ancient philosophy. While returning from a rock concert, he was killed by a drunk driver on Highway 17. His parents, George and Patricia Deppe, along with his friends, established this annual lecture series in his memory as a tribute to his interest in classical antiquity. Each spring a distinguished scholar is invited to give the Carl Mark Deppe lecture. This year’s lecuture will be given by Professor Alex Purves, UCLA

It is customary to begin each annual lecture by reading the essay Carl wrote when he applied for admission to the University of California: you can see that essay here.
