The Bertrand Russell Society was formed shortly after Russell's death. Russell (1872 - 1970) worked in fields such as mathematical logic; philosophy; social, religious, and educational reform; anti-war protests; and politics. An accomplished writer, Russell received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950. This ongoing lecture series promises to enlighten and entertain. Monthly meetings are open to everyone, not just to members of the Society. The Bertrand Russell Forum will alternate each month with the Claude Bragdon Theosophical Society.
