You may be aware that the annual James Arthur Lecture is part of the NAWCC Ward Francillon Time Symposium. The story of the James Arthur Collection and the Lecture series he endowed is the subject of a wonderful series of articles in the Maine Antiques Digest by Jeanne Schinto. The series is not yet complete but the first 3 of 4 articles are available for reading. I highly recommend them for anyone who wants to better understand horology in the complex world of collectors, museums and various interests that go into an appreciation of horology.

James Arthur also endowed a lecture series at the American Museum of Natural History on the human brain and what makes us human. The AMNH has done a marvelous job of supporting and developing their endowed topic. This is the link to their James Arthur site: James Arthur Lecture on the Evolution of the Human Brain.
