This lecture series was conceived by Sydney Blumenthal, who earned an electrical engineering degree at Johns Hopkins in 1937 and went on to become chairman of the Blumenthal-Khan Electrical Limited Partnerships, a contracting company based in Owings Mills, Md. In 1993, he and his wife, Mitzi, endowed the award and lecture to enrich the educational experience at Johns Hopkins. The lecture allows students to hear distinguished speakers talk about subjects such as business management, entrepreneurship, law and ethics, and how these topics apply to engineering and technology.
