Established in 1992, the Klement Lecture brings to campus distinguished scholars in American history. Originally devoted to the history of the sectional conflict, the series now includes all fields of American history. Frank L. Klement, who died in 1994 at the age of 86, received his Ph.D. in History from the University of Wisconsin in 1946. He taught briefly at Lake Forest College and at Eau Claire State Teachers College before joining the history department at Marquette University in 1948. Before his retirement twenty-seven years later with the rank of Professor Emeritus, Frank served as department chair from 1956-1958 and received the Award for Teaching Excellence in 1965. He also served as President of Phi Alpha Theta, the International Honor Society for History (1973-1974), as President of the Lincoln Fellowship of Wisconsin (1960), in many official capacities for the Civil War Round Table of Milwaukee, and on numerous editorial boards and national committees. Prof. Klement's scholarship focused on the Civil War era, particularly on northern dissenters. He authored over fifty articles and chapters in books and dozens of book reviews, but his best known works are The Copperheads in the Middle West (1960), The Limits of Dissent: Clement L. Vallandigham and the Civil War (1970), and Dark Lanterns: Secret Political Societies, Conspiracies, and Treason Trials in the Civil War (1984). Although they are no longer published, the first dozen or so lectures can be ordered online through Marquette University Press. In 2008, an anthology of a many of the lectures was published by Kent State University Press under the title More than a Contest Between Armies: Essays on the Civil War Era, edited by A. Kristen Foster and James Marten.
