Lecture-Only Reservations
The Valerie French Memorial Lecture is free of charge and open to the public, but we ask that you reserve a place at the lecture even if you do not attend the dinner. To make a reservation, please use the reservation form at the bottom of this page. (If only attending the lecture, we recommend arriving by 7:45 PM.)

If you wish to make a donation as well, you may still do so online as explained below.

Along with your reservation, we would also be grateful if you would consider making an unrestricted donation to the General Fund of our local society.  While our local society receives a small rebate from your national AIA membership, we rely on additional contributions from our local members to cover the refreshments and other expenses related to our lectures and other activities.

You may also choose to make specific contributions to our society's three endowments:

• 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.

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.

• 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.

All donations are TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.  Thank you for your support!
