The Guy L. Leonard Lecture Series is a recurring lecture series featuring prominent philosophers with various areas of specialty. The series is made possible by the Leonard Endowment in Philosophy. The endowment was established generously by the Leonard family, whose gifts to the department are in memory of their son, Guy Leonard, who graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a B.A. in Philosophy in 1977.
