Evening Lecture Series


James Grant on "Bagehot: The Life and Times of the Greatest Victorian"
Wednesday, September 25, 2019 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

During the upheavals of 2007–09, the Federal Reserve chairman had the name of a Victorian icon on the tip of his tongue: Walter Bagehot. Banker, man of letters, inventor of the Treasury bill and author of Lombard Street, the still-canonical guide to stopping a run on the banks, Bagehot prescribed the doctrines that―decades later―inspired the radical responses to the world’s worst financial crises. Join us for an evening with financial journalist and historian James Grant, as he discusses his new book on Walter Bagehot. If you are unable to attend this event in person, watch the livestream here.

Talk followed by Q&A and reception. Admission $25; MoAF members free. This event will be held at Fordham University, 140 West 62nd Street, McNally Amphitheatre, NYC. Register today.
