MOHAI's annual Denny Lecture presents regional historical scholarship, held for the first time at the new MOHAI. The 2014 Denny Lecture features a presentation by Bezos Center for Innovation curator Margaret O'Mara.

Seattle has been home to a number of world-changing individuals, organizations, and ideas - from health care to technology, music to social activism. What is it about this place that has made it a hub of innovation? This lecture explores the importance of place to the process of innovation, and how Seattle's past has shaped its innovative present.
