All across the country and the world, households are food-insecure and struggling to maintain a consistent source of sustenance. This summer, Chautauqua Institution has committed to bringing this issue of local and global hunger to the forefront with the Week Two lecture theme, “Feeding a Hungry Planet.”
Chautauqua Institution native-son George E. Vincent, eschewing the beard his father, John Heyl Vincent, wore, possessed a dimpled chin and dark, kind eyes. He was given the college education his father had missed.
In his book Chautauqua: A Center for Education, Religion, and the Arts in America, Theodore Morrison wrote that the young Vincent’s “leadership at Chautauqua was a true filial succession, yet it seems clear that the son belonged to a later generation than the father in mores and beliefs as well as chronology.”
