Harry and Sara Lyons Lecture Fund

Harry Lyons, former dean of the MCV School of Dentistry, initially established the Sara Lyons Memorial Fund in 1967 to benefit the school. Upon his retirement in 1970, friends set up the Harry Lyons Lectureship Fund to invite visiting scholars and other lecturers to the school.

In 1985, Lyons asked that the two funds be merged into a single fund called the Harry and Sara Lyons Lecture Fund. The fund is used for the support of lectureships in dentistry at the direction of the dean of the School of Dentistry.
