John A. Blume Distinguished Lecture Series
The lecture series presented by the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center, which encourages the advancement of earthquake engineering research and education at Stanford. The center was established in 1974 by a donation from John A. Blume, often called the "father of earthquake engineering."
Dr. Blume is a world-renowned structural engineer who dedicated his professional life to the advancement of structural engineering. His extraordinary career spanned more than fifty years, and in recognition of his pioneering contributions to research and professional achievements, he received numerous medals and awards. He received his doctorate in civil and environmental engineering at Stanford in 1967 -- 34 years to the day after receiving his bachelor's degree on campus. A member of the National Academy of Engineering, Blume was a three-time winner of the Leon S. Moisseiff Annual Award.
The John A. Blume Distinguished Lecture is given once a year by a structural engineer whose career best exemplifies Dr. Blume’s outstanding achievements.
