The Bartlett Lecture was established in 2000 as part of the Historic Sites Association’s commitment to sharing the story of Hawthorne Cottage National Historic Site and that of famous arctic navigator Captain Bob Bartlett. Held biannually, each lecture explores a different aspect of Newfoundland history and northern exploration. The lecture style is inspired by Captain Bob’s own lectures tours, which he undertook across the United States, successfully raising international awareness about his voyages.
