Supported by John and Heather Seymour
The Seymour Lecture in Biography commenced in 2005. The lecture has been generously endowed by Dr John Seymour and Mrs Heather Seymour, AO.
In 2010, the Lecture moved to the National Library of Australia, as part of the Seymours’ ongoing sponsorship/support program. The Seymours also sponsor a Summer Scholarship in Biography at the National Library for young postgraduate students.
The inaugural Seymour Lecture was given by distinguished Melbourne author, Dr Brenda Niall, on 2 November 2005.
