In Honor of Stuart G. Christian, Jr


In a season filled with notable events, Thursday, March 29, proved to be a redletter day at the VHS. It marked the inauguration of the newly endowed Stuart G. Christian, Jr., Lecture as the premier spring members-only lecture. The friends of Stuart "Punky" Christian (above right) filled the Robins Forum to capacity that evening to greet him and his family and to attend the lecture and reception. The speaker was Nelson D. Lankford (above center), director of publications and scholarship at the VHS and Virginius Dabney Editor of the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography. Dr. Lankford spoke on the subject of his new book, Cry Havoc! The Crooked Road to Civil War, 1861. Punky Christian has been more than a generous friend and visionary leader of the VHS. His contributions of time and resources have made a lasting imprint on the cultural landscape of central Virginia. As VHS trustee, board president, and now honorary vice chairman, he has through his energy, generosity, and persistence left an indelible mark on this institution. With this joyful evening of celebration to salute the dedication of a visionary leader and dear friend, the VHS took an important step in fulfilling its educational mission.
