SPRINGFIELD, Ohio - A professor of economics at the University of California, Riverside, will be the 2002 Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar at Wittenberg University.

At a campus colloquium at 4:15 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 14, he will speak on "The Economic Consequences of Immigration: The American Case in Historical Perspective" in Kissell Auditorium in Koch Hall. Both events are open to the public free of charge.
