Niehoff Lectures

The Niehoff Lectures at the Mercantile Library were established in 1986 at the suggestion of library benefactors Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Buck Niehoff. Their desire to strengthen the Library’s role as Cincinnati’s premier forum for men and women of letters has been realized and is evidenced by our distinguished roster of Niehoff Lecturers.
