Retired brigadier general to give BYU Durham lecture Nov. 12

A retired brigadier general in the U.S. Army will give the G. Homer Durham Lecture Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 7:30 p.m. in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium at Brigham Young University.

Amos A. Jordan will discuss "Six Revolutionary Challenges Facing Our World." The lecture is sponsored by the BYU Political Science Department and the Public Policy Graduate Program at BYU.

Jordan has vast experience in international affairs, serving as past president of the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., from 1983-88, professor at the U.S. Military Academy and Georgetown University and deputy undersecretary of state in 1976.

The G. Homer Durham Lecture honors persons who have distinguished themselves in public service, but who had not held political office. Durham was a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as well as the first commissioner of the Utah System of Higher Education and president of Arizona State University.
