About the Brother Lucian Blersch Symposium
Organized by the School of Natural Sciences at St. Edward’s University, the event is free and open to the public. This symposium honors Brother Lucian Blersch, CSC, a longtime professor of Engineering at St. Edward’s who died in 1986 and in whose name a professorship in the School of Natural Sciences was endowed by a gift from J.B.N. Morris hs ’48, ’52, and his family. This endowment provides support for research endeavors of the Lucian Chair and natural sciences equipment. Since 2001, the Lucian Professor/Chair helps to organize a symposium that brings noted scientists to campus and highlights research in the area of the natural sciences.
