Governor Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. to Give Annual Hanify-Howland Lecture

November 1st, 2013 by 

The 48th annual Hanify-Howland Memorial Lecture will be given by Governor Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. on Nov. 13 at 8 p.m. in the Hogan Campus Center Ballroom at the College of the Holy Cross. The lecture, which recognizes individuals who have distinguished themselves in the realm of public service in honor of Edward Hanify, a member of the graduating class of 1904, and Weston Howland, will address challenges facing America today. The talk is free and open to the public.

Governor Huntsman began his career in public service as a staff assistant to President Ronald Reagan. He has since served four U.S. presidents in critical roles around the world including Ambassador to Singapore, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Asia, U.S. Trade Ambassador and most recently U.S. Ambassador to China. Twice elected as Utah’s governor, Huntsman brought about strong economic reforms, tripled the state’s rainy day fund and helped bring unemployment rates to historic lows. Huntsman ran as a candidate for the 2013 Republican Presidential nomination. He now serves as co-chair, along with Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, of No Labels, a growing citizens’ movement of Democrats, Republicans and everything in between dedicated to promoting a new politics of problem solving.

Since 1965, the Hanify-Howland lecture series has brought to the Holy Cross campus a series of distinguished speakers who have exemplified in their own work the spirit of public service that the series was established to encourage. Past speakers include Retired Lieutenant General Brent Scowcroft, USAF; Hon. Clarence Thomas ’71, Supreme Court justice; Ruth Wedgwood, director of the Program in International Law and Organizations at Johns Hopkins University; investigative journalist Bob Woodward; Steven D. Levitt, co-author of the bestselling books “Freakonomics”(Harper, 2009) and “Superfreakonomics” (Harper, 2011); and most recently, award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien.

In keeping with the traditional practice of the Hanify-Howland Series, Huntsman will conduct a seminar on campus, which will allow students to interact with the speaker in an intimate and intellectually exciting environment.
