This fund, established in the memory of Lucile Kelling Henderson, enables the School to “attract outstanding professionals and scholars...to interact with students, faculty and alumni” by supporting an annual lecture.
Henderson was a SILS faculty member (1932-1960) and second dean of the School (1954-1960). She led the school through its transition in the '50s from a bachelor of arts program to a fifth-year master's program. She was known as a superior teacher. A lectureship in her honor is appropriate for someone who was an excellent teacher, administrator, counselor and advisor. Past Henderson lecturers.
