The George R. Mather Sunday Lecture Series 

In 1993, while serving on the board of directors at the History Center, the Rev. George R. Mather proposed a series of free Sunday afternoon lectures on topics that influenced Fort Wayne and Allen County history. This lecture series has been renamed in his memory.
 

The George R. Mather Lecture Series is made possible with support from
the Dunsire Family Foundation.

All lectures in this series are free to the public and begin at 2 p.m.
