Hubbard discusses 'Unfinished Symphonies' in Human Rights Convocation
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- "Unfinished Symphonies" will be theme of the
University of Iowa Community Convocation delivered Monday, Jan. 20, by UI
Vice President Emeritus Philip G. Hubbard.
The convocation, which is part of the UI's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Human
Rights Week, will be at 7 p.m. in the Ballroom of the Iowa Memorial Union.
A reception will follow in the East Lobby. Admission is open to the general
public and is free.
Hubbard retired from the university in 1990 after more than 40 years as a
UI administrator and tenured faculty member of the College of Engineering.
He is the author of a recently published book, "New Dawns: A 150-Year
Look at Human Rights at The University of Iowa," in celebration of the
UI's sesquicentennial this year.
In the convocation address, Hubbard will discuss Martin Luther King Jr.'s

about his personal symphonies that are incomplete.
