Ahmanson Foundation Lectureships
The Ahmanson Foundation, founded by financier Howard F. Ahmanson and his wife Dorothy in 1952, has established an endowment to support two lectures a year in Los Angeles, California. The Foundation's broad purpose is to administer funds for charitable, scientific, educational, literary, and religious purposes, all for the public welfare.
The Ahmanson Foundation Lecturers are chosen each year by the AIA Lecture Program Committee.
