UPCOMING HERITAGE TALKS

PAST HERITAGE TALKS

"A History of the Company in 6 or 7 Objects" was the title of the Committee’s unusual April 2018 Talk; as the title suggested the speakers used 6 or 7 priceless Company objects to provide fascinating glimpses into the Company’s history. You can look through the presentation slides here, and you'll find the speaker biographies here.
