         EAU CLAIRE  The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire economics department and the UW-Eau Claire Foundation will sponsor the annual Jerry Johnson Memorial Lecture at 2 p.m. Monday, May 6, in Davies Theatre. Following the lecture will be a reception from 3-4 p.m. in the Alumni Room, Davies Center.
         Eric Jamelske, assistant professor of economics at the University of California-Davis, and Dr. Thomas Kemp, assistant professor of economics at the University of Denver, will lecture on the future of economics as witnessed in their on-going research. They will also explain their plans to incorporate students in their research through student/faculty collaborative grants.
         Jamelske specializes in public economics, international economics and econometrics. He has done research on public policy and the history of policy and reforms in Great Britain.

Johnson died in 1998 and the annual lecture is financed by donations to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation in Johnson's name.
