The Nicholson Lectures were established in the early 1980s in memory of Dr. C. M. Nicholson who was Principal of Pine Hill Divinity Hall from 1946 to 1971. The memorial fund was established by the Pine Hill Alumni Association which has committed itself to the establishment of permanent funding for the lectures. These lectures are offered annually and focus on the area of homiletics. The endowment income for the Nicholson Lectures is made available through the Board of Pine Hill Divinity Hall.
