Oct. 13, 2003

Dr. James Stoner, associate professor of political science at Louisiana State University, will deliver the Robert T. Miller Professorship Distinguished Lecture Series at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 14, in Bennett Auditorium on the Baylor University campus. The lecture, "Natural Law, the Right to Resist and the Constitution," is free and open to the public.

Stoner, who received his doctorate from Harvard University, is the author of "Common Law and Liberal Theory: Coke, Hobbes, and the Origins of American Constitutionalism," which was called "forceful and wise . . . powerful and convincing" by the "American Historical Review" and "a stunning achievement" by the "Journal of Politics." His second book, "Common Law Liberty," was published in June of this year.

Dr. Robert T. Miller, a renowned expert on constitutional law, taught in the political science department at Baylor from 1946-1995, serving as the chair of the department from 1962-1990. At the time of his death in 1996, Miller held the title of R. W. Morrison Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Political Science.
