Georgetown University SFS 75th anniversary with President Clinton
Krogh, Peter F.
O'Donovan, Leo J., S.J.
Since its founding in 1919, Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service has grown into one of the world’s premiere institutions for the study of diplomacy and international affairs. Over the years it has served as a grooming ground for diplomats, public servants, and world leaders. From its faculty the school has produced numerous senor-level officials, including Ambassadors to the United Nations and a Secretary of State. The first school of its kind, the SFS continues to serve as a leading provider of officers for the U.S. Foreign Service and personnel for international careers writ large. In 1994 the SFS celebrated its 75th anniversary, an occasion that was marked with a symposium featuring a keynote address by one of the school’s most famous alumni—Bill Clinton, the 43rd President of the United States and a member of the SFS Class of 1968. Following a performance by the Georgetown Phantoms a cappella group and opening remarks by Rev. Leo J. O’Donovan, President of Georgetown University, and Dr. Peter Krogh, the long-serving Dean who is often referred to as the “second founder” of the School of Foreign Service, President Clinton speaks about the American economy and the importance of free trade.
