Larry Ramer ’50, chairman of the Lafayette Board of Trustees from 1992-2001, will speak on “A Trustee Looks at the World” 4:30 p.m. today in room 120 of Skillman Library.

The free talk is open to all students, faculty, and staff.

A member of the Lafayette Board of Trustees from 1976-2001, Ramer has been active in a variety of cultural and humanitarian organizations, both domestic and international. These include Orbis, which works in developing countries to save sight through public health education and access to eye care, and the Lawrence and Lee Ramer Center for German-Jewish Relations, which he founded in 1992 and for which the German government honored him with its highest award.

In addition, Ramer has served on the board of directors of numerous musical and theatrical organizations in Southern California. He will reflect on his experience with these organizations and philanthropies in an informal talk for the Lafayette community.

Elected to emeritus trustee status, Ramer was recognized for his service to the board and the College at Lafayette’s 166th Commencement May 19, 2001. Previously, his contributions to Lafayette were honored by the naming of Ramer Hall, a residence hall.

The event is sponsored by Friends of Skillman Library, the Jewish Studies program, and the International Affairs program.
