The Plummer Lecture

The Hellen Ingram Plummer Lecture is the College of Arts and Sciences’ annual endowed lecture, featuring noted scholars, scientists, artists and performers who have made notable contributions to their fields of achievement and to society at large. The Plummer Lecture was endowed in 1999 in honor of the late Atlanta arts patron.

Hellen Ingram Plummer was a strong supporter of the arts in Atlanta for decades. The mother of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet James I. Merrill and the former wife of Merrill Lynch founder Charles E. Merrill, Mrs. Plummer counted among her friends such artistic greats as George Gershwin, Charlie Chaplin, Katherine Hepburn and Gloria Swanson.
