Distinguished Speaker Series

This lecture series presents a unique and diverse roster of distinguished speakers. Topics focus on items of historical significance to Key West and the Florida Keys. Presenters are top experts in their subject matter and want to share their research with you. We record these lectures and make them available to the public for educational purposes.

The project is sponsored in part by the Helmerich Trust and the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council of the Arts and Culture and the State of Florida. Additional support provided by the Marriott Key West Beachside Resort.
