The American Classical League

60th Annual Institute
84th Annual Meeting

Party at the Parthenon
Vanderbilt University
Nashville, Tennessee
Thursday June 28 - Saturday June 30, 2007

The 60th Summer Institute of the American Classical League will take place Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, June 27-30, 2007. Plans for this institute are still in the very early stages, but we know that the institute will include tours of the Parthenon and its replica of the statue of Athena and various festivities to celebrate sixty years of summer institutes.

We would like to commemorate this milestone in a number of ways. First of all, there will be a special display in Nashville of memorabilia from previous institutes. There will also be a memory book about earlier institutes, so ACL members are being asked to put on their thinking caps and recollect memorarable events, both serious and funny, from previous institutes. Please do not underestimate your own experiences. If you attended an institute, you must have something to remember.

Submit your memories

Please share these memories with others. You can submit these recollections online or by sending e-mail to or snailmail to Tom Sienkewicz, ACL Vice President, Monmouth College, Monmouth, Illliois 61462.

Also if you have any photos from previous institutes which you would be willing to share, please send them as well. They will be scanned and returned to you. All attendees at the 2007 Institute will receive a copy of this memory book! And get ready to party at the Parthenon in 2007!
