The Bebe Koch Petrou Speaker Series was established in 1990 through the generous gift of an endowment from the John and Bebe Petrou Foundation. This series, the most prestigious in our department, honors Bebe Koch Petrou, the late wife of John Petrou and a Maryland graduate. Their son, David, an alumnus of our department, was instrumental, with his father, in setting up the original lecture series. In 2010 the Petrou family kindly allowed the English department to expand Petrou events to include writers-in-residence, readings, multiple lectures, and conferences. Petrou events are intended to be the “hallmark of distinguished academic excellence.”
