Lecture in Honor of John C. Van Horne
Dr. John C. Van Horne served as the Edwin Wolf 2nd Director of the Library Company from 1985 to 2014. Upon his retirement, the Library created an endowed lecture series in his honor to recognize and celebrate his many contributions to the Library Company.
Each year, the Library Company invites a distinguished speaker to present the Lecture in Honor of John C. Van Horne as a free public lecture or as a scholar-in-residence event.
