Ong's Lincoln Lecture Tour

In 1974, Fr. Ong was the Lincoln Lecturer for the United States Board of Foreign Scholarships in Central and Western Africa. As the Lincoln Lecturer, he traveled and lectured, both in English and French, in Cameroun, Nigeria, Senegal, and Zaire. The Lincoln Lecturers were established to commemorate the passage of the Fulbright Act, which in 1945 established an ongoing educational exchange program between the United States and other countries. The Ong Collection contains a large file on the Lincoln Lecturer program and Fr. Ong's trip. | | |
