ON WE GO! February 13, 2019

A prominent lecture series at the College dates back to 1920, when the Danford Thomas Memorial Lecture Foundation was established by Mr. Rhodes B. Thomas, who was a local citizen and Georgetown trustee, in memory of his father. Mr. Danford Thomas had served as a professor of Greek and Latin at Georgetown from 1839 to 1882, during which period he was also the College’s first librarian. His memory is honored each year through an invited lecture that furthers the historic interests and ideals of Georgetown College.
The public lecture this year is at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 28th, in the Ward Room of the Ensor Learning Resource Center on main campus. It will be presented by Georgetown alumnus, Dr. Brad Elliott Stone, who is a Professor of Philosophy and formerly Chair of the Department of African American Studies at Loyola Marymount University. Dr. Stone is a keynote participant in a special conference, entitled Lift Every Voice: Racism and Reconciliation, that will be focusing on progress in achieving social and racial justice. On behalf of the College, I am delighted to bring this memorial lectureship and conference invitation to your attention. Please visit the College’s website for more details, and come join us if you can.
