NASA Legend and Apollo 13 Commander

Midland College, Midland, Texas

Captain James Lovell ... A great American hero, astronaut Jim Lovell is most famous for his role in the American space age and for his calm and careful command of Apollo 13. Lovell stoically articulated the five-word message, “Houston, we have a problem,” which quickly became a part of the American lexicon. Through teamwork and decisive leadership, Lovell and his crew modified the lunar module into an effective lifeboat to safely return to Earth. As captain, he was instantly transformed into an inspiring national hero.

Captain Lovell is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, the University of Southern California’s Aviation Safety School, and the Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Program. He has earned many awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, two Navy Distinguished Flying Crosses, and the Congressional Space Medal of Honor. Today, he is president of Lovell Communications, a business devoted to disseminating information about the U.S. space program.

Twice a year, the Davidson Distinguished Lecture Series, Midland College Foundation and Friends of the Series present speakers whose civic leadership, academic accomplishments and/or public achievements interest, enrich and enlighten Midland students and citizens. These lectures are FREE to the public.
