Historical Note

The Brigham Young University annual Distinguished Faculty Lecture was established to honor outstanding scholars. The individual selected for this distinction must have given evidence of the quality of his learning and knowledge through frequent publication and contributions to professional journals of merit. The Distinguished Faculty Lecture also enables students, faculty, and friends of the university to hear the presentation of a formal lecture which reflects this scholarship, and it serves as a motivating influence to all. The lecture was previously known simply as the Faculty Lecture. It was later renamed the Karl G. Maeser Distinguished Faculty Lecture.
