Students who attended The College of Wooster during the Lowry years have often shared their memories of sitting in the old Memorial Chapel to hear President Lowry’s famous “Chapel Talks.”

While The College of Wooster Archives Collection does include many typed drafts and transcripts of his speeches, the collection also includes many of his scribbled notes for such talks, often consisting of no more than a few quotes taken from his favorite works of literature. He would use these touchstones to link the fiction that he embraced to the reality of current events.

The following audio files span the later Lowry years, 1959-1967, with the last chapel talk dating just months before his death on July 4, 1967.
