Nobel Laureate delivers Schwartz lecture

During a Kellogg tenure that lasted 25 years, Roger Myerson produced the research that ultimately earned him a 2007 Nobel Prize for economics. The former professor of Managerial Economics and Decision Sciences (MEDS) returned to Evanston in May to deliver the 26th Annual Nancy L. Schwartz Memorial Lecture. Speaking to an overflow Kellogg audience, Myerson, who today is a faculty member at the University of Chicago, presented a talk titled "On the Foundations of Social Institutions," offering insights rooted in economic and political analysis. The lecture series, which since its 1983 inception has consistently attracted top thought leaders, including other Nobel winners, is named for the late Kellogg scholar who joined the school in 1970. Schwartz became the first woman to chair the MEDS Department, and she served as director of the Kellogg doctoral program until her death in 1981.
