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 symphonies that were left unfinished. Hubbard will also relay his own thoughts about his personal symphonies that are incomplete.
