Former UI presidents play role in lecture at California university
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- An annual lecture at a California university on Nov.
20 will have a University of Iowa flavor -- one former UI president will
give a lecture named in honor of another former UI president.
James O. Freedman, who was UI president from 1982 to 1987, will present
the Howard R. Bowen Lecture on Nov. 20 at Claremont Graduate University
in Claremont, Calif. The lecture series, now in its 14th year, honors
the late Bowen, who was UI president from 1964 to 1969. He later served
as president at Claremont Graduate University.
Freedman has been president of Dartmouth College since 1987. His Bowen
lecture is titled "College Presidents and the Public Stage."
Freedman was in Iowa City this past February to participate in a UI sesquicentennial
The Howard R. Bowen Lecture is sponsored by the Hausam-Fisk Endowment
and the Center for Education Studies at Claremont, which is dedicated exclusively
to graduate studies.
