A program of the USD Institute of American Indian Studies, the Cash Memorial Lecture was inaugurated in 1995 to promote education and awareness of American Indian culture, issues and problems. Supported by an endowment established by Joseph Harper Cash’s family and friends, the lecture annually features scholars in the fields of Indian studies, frontier, Western and mining history – the four major areas of Cash’s interests. Cash, from Bonesteel, S.D., was dean of the College of Arts & Sciences at USD for a decade. In his lifetime, he forged lifelong friendships with Indian and non-Indian people, and admonished his students to remember history from small places. His memorial lecture series is built on that thesis.
