Hallimond Lecture

 

The Hallimond Lecture was established in honour of Arthur Francis Hallimond (1890–1968) who was a member of the Mineralogical Society for 56 years, many of which were served on Council (obituary published in American Mineralogist ).

The annual lecture is a tribute to Hallimond’s valuable contribution to the science of mineralogy, particularly in the fields of ore mineralogy and instrument design. His book, Manual of the Polarising Microscope, first published in 1948, is regarded as one of the foundation stones of modern ore-microscopy.

The Hallimond Lecturer, chosen annually by Council, is invited to deliver a lecture at the Mineralogical Society’s Annual Meeting. The first Hallimond lecture was delivered in 1970/1.
