The late Ambassador Laurence W. “Bill” Lane, Jr., and his wife, Jean, sponsored the Wallace Stegner Lectures from their inception in 1993. Jean passed away in the fall of 2017, surrounded by her family. She established the Bill and Jean Lane Endowment to provide for their annual lead sponsorship of this beloved lecture series. POST applauds Jean and Bill, whose unwavering support, energy and dedication enable us to bring you the lecture series again this year and into the future.
A special thank you to Fenwick & West for providing space for our annual subscriber reception.
Begun by POST in 1993, the Wallace Stegner Lectures pay tribute to Wallace Stegner (1909-1993), a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, environmental leader and longtime Peninsula resident. Stegner was an ardent conservationist and Stanford University English Professor who worked to preserve the Peninsula land he captured in his writing.
A longtime friend of POST, Stegner helped launch the lectures and was slated to host the first lecture series in 1993. Because he died before the series began, the lectures were named in his honor. Learn About Last Year’s Series
