The Harry Camp Memorial Fund was established in 1956 by friends and associates of Harry Camp. A prominent businessman and
philanthropist in San Francisco, Camp was described as a "gentle and wise humanitarian." The fund brings outstanding speakers
to the University for public lectures and promotes the study of "the concept of the dignity and the worth of the individual."
The Camp Lectures are presented every other year.
