The original Maurice Lubbock Memorial Fund was established by the Lubbock family in memory of the Hon Maurice Lubbock (1919). For fifty years it was chaired by his son, the late Eric Lubbock, 4th Baron Avebury (1945 and Honorary Fellow 2004–2016). Amongst other things, the Trust supports the Lubbock Fellowship; Lubbock Scholarships and Exhibitions; and the Maurice Lubbock Memorial Lectures, held annually since 1964.
