The Hans Landsberg Memorial Lecture 

The Hans Landsberg Memorial Lecture is an annual event dedicated to the memory of Hans Landsberg, a pioneer in energy and mineral economics who was a devoted member of the Resources for the Future staff for nearly 40 years.

RFF inaugurated the lecture series on January 21, 2004 with a talk by Under Secretary of Energy Robert G. Card (A Discussion of Two of the Key Energy Questions of the Day: Natural Gas and Greenhouse Gas Emissions).

Hans was a friend and mentor to many individuals, motivating them to pursue careers as diverse as his many interests. His contributions include lead-authorship of Resources in America's Future, a 1963 landmark volume examining the multiplicity of natural resource requirements to sustain the nation's economic growth and Energy: The Next Twenty Years, (1979), a major research effort he directed to probe the nation's energy dilemmas in the wake of emerging environmental concerns.

Hans was one of RFF's founding fathers. His friends, family, and colleagues established the Hans Landsberg Memorial Fund, proceeds from which underwrite the annual Lecture, to ensure that his legacy of scholarship--rooted in solid knowledge and analysis, yet widely accessible and policy relevant--lives on. Additional contributions are welcomed. For more information on the Lecture or on how to contribute to the Fund, please contact Barbara Bush, Director of Major Gifts, at 202-328-5030 or bush@rff.org.
