Bill Clinton coming to UAlbany

bill clinton at world economic forum 2006 davosBill Clinton is coming to UAlbany as part of the school's World Within Reach Speaker Series. The former President will be speaking March 2.

The first mention we saw of this event came via the Albany Student Press Twitter feed. UAlbany Student Association president Justin Wax Jacobs confirmed the appearance via email. (The SA organizes the speaker series.)

Previous events in this series have included Colin Powell, Barbara Walters and a debate between Howard Dean and Karl Rove. These events have been open to the public (a pre-registered ticket was required).

We'll follow up when there's info about the Clinton appearance.

The 42nd President was in the Capital Region just recently -- he made a brief stop in Saratoga in November to campaign for Scott Murphy.

Update: Clinton will speaking at SEFCU Arena on the uptown campus. Registration starts February 1. It's open to "UAlbany students, faculty, staff, and alumni."

... The theft itself of this important Native American artifact is an important part of its story. It's really a miracle that almost 70 years later that the Cornplanter pipe tomahawk ended up back at the State Museum, instead of remaining in someone's secret, private collection acquired illicitly, or even worse, not cared for professionally and therefore damaged, destroyed, or lost forever.
