Biographical Note/Historical Note +/-
The Tanner-McMurrin Lectures on the History and Philosophy of Religion was established at Westminster College of Salt Lake City in 1987 as a means of bringing major scholars in the fields of history and philosophy of religion to campus to deliver public lectures and conduct seminars on basic problems in religious thought and practice.
The lecture series is administered by the President of Westminster College. The lectures are funded in perpetuity by an endowment gift from Obert Clark Tanner, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Utah, and Grace Adams Tanner. The Lectureship is named in honor of Dr. Sterling M. McMurrin (1914-1996), who was the E. E. Ericksen Distinguished professor Emeritus at the University of Utah, a former United States Commissioner of Education, and a trustee of Westminster College.
The Genevieve W. Gore Distinguished Residents Program brings noteworthy faculty, scholars, and business leaders to campus every year.
