About the Graham Lecture

Frank Graham was a Princeton professor from 1921 to 1949 and the second Walker Professor of Economics and International Finance. Professor Graham published widely on international trade and international monetary issues.

After his untimely death in 1949, the lecture was established by his friends inside and outside the department to honor his memory. It is the signature event of the International Economics Section and has been delivered over the years by a veritable Who’s Who in International Economics, including ten Nobel Laureates.
