Lyne Starling Trimble History of Science Public Lectures

Trimble Lecture Series 2022

The Lyne Starling Trimble History of Science Public Lecture Series features prominent science historians and writers who highlight the important roles that science plays in modern society and culture. All lectures are held at the American Center for Physics, College Park, MD, unless noted otherwise.

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 Trimble Lecture Fund aims to support and increase sustainability by further endowing the series at $200,000.
