Ivan Levinstein Memorial Lecture


Established 1946

The Ivan Levinstein Memorial Lecture was endowed by Dr Herbert Levinstein to commemorate the life and achievements of his father, who was a pioneer in the dyestuffs industry.

Levinstein was extremely fortunate to have both the prolific inventor's brain, as well as the drive, ambition and vision that goes with being a successful entrepreneur. Remarkably, he was only 19 when he began manufacturing aniline dyestuffs and other products. Read more on Ivan Levinstein.
