The Chubb Fellowship is devoted to encouraging and aiding Yale students interested in the operations of government, culture and public service. Established in 1936 through the generosity of Hendon Chubb (Yale 1895), the program is based in Timothy Dwight College. Each year three or four distinguished men and women have been appointed as Visiting Chubb Fellows. Chubb Fellows spend their time at Yale in close, informal contact with students, and deliver a public lecture. Among former Chubb Fellows have been presidents George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter; authors Octavio Paz and Toni Morrison; musician Tito Puente and journalist Walter Cronkite.
Note: There is limited space for videographers and photographers in Luce Hall Auditorium. Please call 203-432-1319 by noon, April 12, to reserve space.
