  TH & JS Lectures entitled EVOLUTION AND ETHICS

Dear Fellow Networkers,

In 1893 Thomas Henry Huxley delivered, as an invited speaker at the
"Romanes Lecture", a lecture on "Evolution and Ethics".
Fifty years later, his grandson Julian was invited to celebrate the
anniversary by giving  a lecture with the same title, also at a
"Romanes Lecture". Julian Huxley's lecture was published in 1946, together
with his grandfather's lecture in a book.
As this year marks the hundredth anniversary of TH Huxley's lecture, I
wonder if this has been (or will be) celebratred in any way.
By the way, does anybody know what the "Romanes Lectures" were
(and, may be, still are)?

I would welcome any information on follow ups from the Huxley's
