The Livingston Family Lecture in the Natural Sciences


Ronald Sarcos, teacher of Spanish and Psychology, will present his Livingston Lecture titled, "The Lonely Road to Manhood," at 4 PM on May 8 in the Joseph Dana Allen Library.

These lectures have offered important scholarly moments for us, giving the teaching community a chance to think and reflect, as they listen and share colleague’s engagements with scholarship. The lecture was established more than thirty years ago by Headmaster emeritus, Bill Williams, with the support of alumni and friends, to honor the Livingston family, significant school supporters, whose unprecedented devotion to learning at Poly inspired generations. The spirit of the lectures aims to foster a vibrant intellectual community by promoting research and engaging the community in the widest academic thought. 

The requirement is to prepare and deliver a scholarly lecture to the extended community, including by invitation students, faculty, parents, and alumni. All member of the faculty in the Lower, Middle, and Upper divisions are eligible and encouraged to apply.
