About the Speaker Series

The H. Louise & H.E. "Ed" Cobb Speaker Series was established in 1991. It is the primary fundraising event for the Friends of the OSU Library. All proceeds from the event directly benefit the OSU Libraries.

The series is presented annually by the Friends of the OSU Library to recognize an outstanding body of work that has profoundly influenced the way in which we understand ourselves and American society at large. A selection committee chooses the keynote speaker on a noncompetitive basis.

This event is made possible each year thanks to the ongoing generosity of the Cobb family.
