For more than twenty-five years, the VHS has been hosting noontime lectures that are open to members and the general public. Authors and scholars discuss their most recent work and research on a variety of topics, ranging from architecture and art to genealogy and modern-day politics. Held in the society's Robins Family Forum, the Banner Lecture Series continues to be a highlight of the VHS calendar for many people. These lectures last approximately one hour followed, in many cases, by a book signing. The VHS has been recording Banner Lectures since 2007. Watch and/or listen to more than fifty past lectures.
While we make improvements to our South Entrance, Banner Lectures will be held in the Halsey Family Lecture Hall.
