Hurter Memorial Lecture
Hurter Memorial Lecture – Established 1898
The first Hurter Memorial Lecture was given by Professor George Lunge of Zurich, a close friend and collaborator of Hurter. Fourteen years later it was given by Fritz Haber, inventor of the Haber-Bosch process. Another early Hurter Lecturer was Sir Oliver Lodge, famous for being both a physicist, and a spiritualist, both very much in the public eye. When the Lecture celebrated its centenary in 1998, staff from BASF Plc, AstraZeneca and Bristol-Myers Squibb, amongst many others, joined civic leaders and senior academics at Liverpool University.
