The Hutchinson Lecture in Macroeconomics, which is sponsored annually by the Department of Economics, was established in 1990 to honor the distinguished academic career of the late Harry D. Hutchinson, a professor of economics who taught at UD from 1959-89.

Each year a distinguished scholar and policy-maker is invited to present the Hutchinson Lecture in the spring semester.
