The pH Lecture is an endowed lecture established by the Hertelendy family of California. Dr. Hertlenedy is an alumni member of the Smithsonian's National Board and for several years he served at its official liaison to SAO. The family established the lecture to encourage and celebrate the Observatory's outstanding young scientists.
