This year the Hackley community enjoyed a wonderful visit from parent David Einhorn who delivered our Bruce C. Forbes Lecturer for 2015. The purpose of this Lecture Series is to introduce Hackley students to speakers who will address important issues of history, politics, culture, and public policy. It was established in 1989 by Malcolm S. Forbes '37 in honor of his brother Bruce, Hackley Class of 1935. Previous speakers have included Thomas R. Casten, Steve Forbes, Donald P. Gregg, Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, Joe Klein '64, William Kristol, Dr. Arthur B. Laffer, Douglas H. Lasdon ’73, Ralph Nader, Barack Obama, Henry Wendt '51, and Howard Zinn.
