A. Dixon and Betty F. Johnson Memorial Lecture in Scientific Communication
The A. Dixon Johnson and Betty F. Johnson Memorial Lectures in Scientific Communication are organized by the Eberly College of Science and are designed for the enjoyment and education of the residents of the Central Pennsylvania area. The biennial lectures feature distinguished science communicators who excel at communicating scientific issues and discoveries to the general public. The lectures were established with a gift from Betty F. Johnson in honor of her husband A. Dixon Johnson, who had been a science writer and the head of the Department of Public Information at Penn State from 1962 to 1974. The series is supported by the A. Dixon and Betty F. Johnson Foundation.
