The McKenzie Trust
promoting excellence in scholarship and teaching

The following is taken from the introductory pamphlet issued by the McKenzie Trust (revised July 1997)
For more information please contact M.F. Suarez michael.suarez@campion.ox.ac.uk

The McKenzie Trust was founded to honour D.F. McKenzie on the occasion of his retirement as Professor of Bibliography and Textual Criticism at the University of Oxford. The Trust Committee - an international group of book historians, librarians, and literary scholars from the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, France, Ireland, the USA, and McKenzie's own native New Zealand - is seeking funds to endow a legacy recognizing Professor McKenzie's signal contributions to scholarship and teaching.

The D.F. McKenzie Lecture is an annual public address delivered at Oxford University by a distinguished scholar on the history of the book, scholarly editing, or bibliography and the sociology of texts. The Inaugural D. F. McKenzie Lecture was delivered in June 1996 by Dr. David McKitterick, Librarian of Trinity College, Cambridge, who spoke on the history of the Cambridge University Press. Professor Roger Chartier, Directeur d'Études, Ecole des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, Paris, delivered the Second Annual Lecture in June 1997. 

The Trust is committed to continue to bring the most important scholars working in book history, bibliography, scholarly editing, and the sociology of texts to Oxford. In the next several years, speakers will be coming from the United States, Australia and/or New Zealand. Thus far, we have raised an endowment of more than eighteen thousand pounds toward securing the future of this event. We need to reach our goal of twenty-five thousand pounds in order fully to endow this lecture named for one of the Oxford's great scholar-teachers. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
