THE HENRY HINCKLEY LECTURE SERIES
Henry Hinckley (1888-1969) was born in Trumansburg and grew up in Ithaca. A Cornell architecture grad and avid antiques and ephemera collector, Hinckley amassed a trove of Americana that after his death became the basis for the Henry Hinckley Museum. Hinckley was an early preservationist and was actively engaged with the built environment not only as an architect but also as an Ithaca city building commissioner, property manager, and investment banker.
The Henry Hinckley Lecture Series continues the now-defunct Henry Hinckley Museum’s mission to promote the “education and enlightenment of present and future generations.”
