The Erb Lecture was endowed by William H. Erb, a former President of the Academy, in his Will and has been additionally supported by his son, William H. Erb, Jr., also a Fellow of the Academy. Dr. Erb directed that the endowment be used for education and it has been used to support an invited speaker to come to Philadelphia and present to the Academy.
