Lyne Starling Trimble Science Heritage Public Lectures

The Lyne Starling Trimble Science Heritage Public Lecture Series features prominent science historians and writers who highlight the important roles that science plays in modern society and culture.

Funded by a generous donation from Dr. Virginia Trimble, the lecture series is named after her late father, Dr. Lyne Starling Trimble (1912–1992) who held patents for a number of color-reproduction systems and was an innovative chemist. The series was first endowed at $100,000 by Dr. Trimble, and the Physics Heritage & Promise campaign aims to support and increase sustainability by further endowing the series at $500,000. You can also subscribe for upcoming lecture notifications.
