Coming to Campus
Harold Ickes, a Marjorie Kovler Visiting Fellow, will deliver a public lecture titled Politics in the Theater of the Absurd at 12:15 p.m. Thursday, April 1, in the Law School Court Room, 1111 E. 60th St.
A conversation with the student-run Political Union will follow at 4 p.m. in the South Lounge of the Reynolds Club, 5706 S. University Ave.
Ickes has been active as a lawyer, political strategist and presidential advisor for three decades, serving as assistant to President Clinton and deputy chief of staff for Political Affairs and Policy from 1994 to 1997. Today, he practices law and works for the Ickes and Enright Group, a government relations and political consulting firm he co-founded in 1997.
The Marjorie Kovler Visiting Fellows program brings distinguished speakers from the arts, sciences and public affairs to the University, allowing students to interact with prominent individuals they would not ordinarily have the opportunity to meet.
