Lyne Starling Trimble Public Event Series

Trimble Lecture Series 2024

The Lyne Starling Trimble Public Event Series features prominent science historians, writers, and scientists who illuminate the place of science in modern society and culture.

Funded by a generous donation from Dr. Virginia Trimble, the event 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 Trimble Lecture Fund aims to increase the reach and sustainability of the series by further endowing it at $200,000.
