It is a great honor to be this year's Emanuel Emroch Lecturer. Though I never had the privilege of knowing Mr. Emroch, I do feel on this occasion as though I were almost an honorary member of the Emroch family. And I am deeply grateful to that family for having continued a tradition which seems to me as fitting and as appropriate a memorial as one could imagine. It is a living memorial in the best sense and it gives those who gather in the name of the person being so honored a chance not only to carry on their own conversations but to reflect on their debt to the person whose name and generosity made it all possible.
