The Notestein Seminar Series
An integral part of the research and training program at OPR is the series of weekly seminars, which provide a forum in which OPR staff, students, and visiting scholars can become acquainted with current research projects. Students who are writing theses are required to present a seminar in this series in order to receive suggestions on their research and to obtain experience in making public presentations. Demographers and social scientists from nearby institutions are frequently invited to present their research findings in this series.

Frank W. Notestein

the founding director of the Office of Population Research.
He was director of the Population Division of the United Nations
between 1946 and 1948, and became president of the Population Council
The Memorial Fund
In March 1983, the Frank W. Notestein Memorial Fund was established
with the purpose of bringing distinguished outside speakers to OPR
on a more regular basis.
These lecturers usually spend several hours in informal discussion
with students and post-doctoral fellows.
From time to time OPR holds joint seminars with the labor economists
and development economists, with the goal of
creating intellectual bridges with these groups.
