In 2017 we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Albert Abrum Lager Lecture Series.  Our series of Hamilton-area educational lectures and events is named after McMaster graduate Albert Abrum Lager, a great believer in the value of life-long education.  He created the Albert Abrum Lager Foundation which supports several organizations in their efforts, including the McMaster Alumni Association.
