The Washington, DC Society maintains
the following funds:

• Howland Lecture Endowment:  This fund sponsors an annual lecture, established in honor of Richard Hubbard Howland—archaeologist, architectural historian, and humanist–who had a long career at the Smithsonian Institution, during the course of which he held important positions in the Archaeological Institute of America, both at the national level and at the local level here in Washington, DC. The annual Howland Lecture is one of the highlights of the Washington Society’s lecture program, and this fund enables us to bring outstanding speakers to address our members and friends on current developments in the field of classical archaeology.


Davison Lecture Endowment:  This fund was established in honor of Louise Dickey Davison, who served our local Washington, DC Society in numerous roles both as an officer and board member and who was commissioned by the national AIA in 1946 to conduct a survey of war damage to important museums in London and Berlin.  The fund contributes to an annual lecture in her honor.

• Craft Travel Fellowship Endowment: This fund sponsors our Student Travel Fellowship, which helps a worthy student with the costs of attending the AIA Annual Meeting each year. In 2010, the Board voted to name the Fellowship in memory of our late member, Elisabeth Roberts Craft, who administered the Fellowship for 10 years until her death in 2009.
