HSS Distinguished Lecture Speakers
The History of Science Society's series of Distinguished Lectures began in 1981 at the annual meeting in Los Angeles, California. In planning for that meeting, and in response to the proliferation of parallel sessions, program co-chairs David C. Lindberg and Ronald L. Numbers decided to create a plenary forum featuring a historian of science at the height of his or her career. Over the past 20 years this "Society Lecture" has evolved into a highlight of the annual meeting, drawing by far the largest attendance of any session. Through the generosity of Joseph H. Hazen, the renamed HSS Distinguished Lecture has been endowed, allowing the Society to cover the lecturer's expenses and honorarium.
