. T Orr Lecture+?

  • Since November 25, 1970, the R. T Orr Public Lecture series has been held each year in memory of Mr. Robinson T Orr, the son of a prominent London and London Township family of five generations, a successful businessman, an active layman in the Anglican Church, a staunch supporter of Huron College, and a man of outstanding qualities.

    Through the R. T Orr Lecture, it has been possible for the College to bring to London scholars of international reputation and outstanding theological educators.  Some past lecturers have been Premier Clyde K. Wells, Walter Wink, Michael Coogan, Adela Yarbro Collins, E. P. Sanders, and John Dominic Crossan.
