The Hanify-Howland Memorial Lecture Committee is a twelve-student committee founded in 1965 in honor of Judge Edward Hanify, Class of 1904, and Mr. Weston Howland. The Committee serves to select the speaker for the College’s annual keynote lecture.
Funded through the generosity of the Hanify and Howland families and operating directly through the President’s Office, the Committee provides the opportunity for member students to have sole discretion over the choice of an annual speaker to address the College community on issues of public affairs.
Additionally, the Committee provides for seminars in which Holy Cross students may engage each year’s speaker in a small-group setting.
