The Explorers Club Lowell Thomas Awards Dinner

Saturday, October 15, 2011 @ 6:00 PM-9:00 PM

For the first time, the venerable international Explorers Club will present its prestigious Lowell Thomas awards in St. Louis at a gala dinner on October 15. The awards, established in honor of the journalist and broadcaster who made Lawrence of Arabia famous, have been given in New York since their establishment in 1980.

The St. Louis Academy of Science and the St. Louis chapter of the Explorers Club are co-sponsors of the event. Titled “Exploring the World’s Greatest Mysteries,” the festivities will take place from October 14-16. The awards dinner and a scientific symposium are open to the public.

“Considering the nearby discovery of Cahokia Mounds, and St. Louis’ role as home base for the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the city is a fitting location for our first awards dinner outside of New York, “ said Lorie Karnath, president of the Explorers Club and Rolex Watch, USA.

Members of the Explorers Club, founded in 1904 by illustrious explorers of the time, have accomplished a number of ‘firsts.’ Among them are firsts to both north and south poles, first to the summit of Mount Everest, and first to the surface of the moon. Read more
