The Addison Harris Lecture Series was established in 1946 by a trust from the bequest of India Crago Harris in memory of her late husband. Addison C. Harris (1840-1916) was a distinguished Indiana lawyer and statesman. Harris was a member of the State Senate and was appointed by President McKinley as minister to Austria-Hungary. In addition, he served as President of the Indiana State Bar Association and of the Indiana Law School.
