Carl Deppe was a charismatic young man and a promising student. In 1985 he was a sophomore at UCSC, studying Greek and ancient philosophy. While returning from a rock concert, he was killed by a drunk driver on Highway 17. His parents, George and Patricia Deppe, along with his friends, established this annual lecture series in his memory as a tribute to his interest in classical antiquity. Each spring a distinguished scholar is invited to give the Carl Mark Deppe lecture.
