The Alfred Gourdji Distinguished Lecture Series was planned by Ron Bogdasarian, Ron Frisch, Beverley Geltner, John Kelly, Leo Shedden, Marie Vitale, and Katherine Woo, and co-chairs Gerald Gardner and Frances Schultz.
OLLI’s Distinguished Lecture Series has been renamed as the Alfred Gourdji Distinguished Lecture Series in memory of our friend and colleague who was the heart and soul of the series for many years. The series features prominent, engaging speakers from “town and gown.” It consists of ten lectures, five in the fall session and five in the winter/ spring session. Learn from well-known experts about an array of fascinating topics. Each lecture is just the beginning; a stimulating Q&A period follows each session.
