The Distinguished Wilson Abernethy Lecture

The Distnguished Wilson Abernethy Lecture is the Institute’s major public event given annually by a distinguished scholar in the field of aging and the life course.

The Lecture Series received it’s name from Mr. Wilson Abernethy, the president of Anthes Industries, and the founder and first president of the Senior Alumni Association of the University of Toronto.

We have been both proud and pleased about the Abernethy Lecture speakers in this series stretching back to George Maddox in 1982.

This year we are pleased and honoured to welcome Dr. Karl A. Pillemer to deliver the 24th Distinguished Wilson Abernethy Lecture on March 15th, 2022.
