The Larry Adair Lectureship Series was established at Northeastern State University Foundation in 2004 by friends and family of the retiring Oklahoma Speaker of the House, the Honorable Larry Adair, to create an annual forum though which to address issues in politics, government and public policy. One of the primary goals of the lectureship is to raise student interest in public affairs and encourage all members of the NSU community to become more engaged citizens.
The lectureship is held on the Tahlequah campus.
